Things to do

Loule old town:

Loule is a beautiful 13th-century town. The historic town centre is charming. Cobblestone streets wind and lead visitors to a bounty of shops selling local wares and restaurants serving traditional food and drink. The views from the old castle walls are lovely.

Handicrafts and local markets:

Local traditional handicrafts from the Loule region are a unique souvenir. Earthenware pots in bright colours, wooden toys, intricate lace, and colourful blankets are just a few examples. Each Saturday, Loule's cobblestone streets turn into a local craft market where locals sell their wares from morning to midnight. This definitely a unique experience!

Loule's food market:

The food market in Loule is one of the region's most popular destinations. Vibrant stalls overflow with fresh fruits and vegetables, local cheese, wine, sweets, and the freshest fish money can buy. This is a great place to mix with locals and get a true feeling for what life is like in the region.

The Fonte da Benémola:

Located in Querença and Tôr, this nature reserve is home to endangered and protected animal and plant species. The Fonte da Benémola is spread out over 390 hectares. Special footpaths have been established to guide visitors through this beautiful area.

Castle of Loule:

The site where the Castle of Loule now stands was believed to have been first occupied by the Romans before being transformed into a military defence station. Today visitors can view three grey stone towers that offer a terrific view of Loule from above.

Igreja Matriz de São Lourenço:

This church was built at the beginning of the 18th century and is one of Algarve's most famous. Blue and white glazed tiles cover the interior of the church and the interior is characterised by intricate woodwork. It was one of the few buildings to survive the earthquake of 1755.

Perfect Place to chill out, Beautiful House and Village.

5 of 5
We booked this house last minute, Paul the owner met us on arrival and helped us with luggage. The house is perfectly positioned with beautiful views of Alte and surrounding countryside. The house is restored to a high standard with all modern amenities and to top it off great wifi. As it was November when we stayed Paul was so helpful by bringing us two loads of wood, the open fire was an added bonus , nothing was to much trouble with Paul (what a gentleman). We highly recommend Paul's house and also there is a great Restaurant at the bottom of the village with great food and wine.

Highly recommended contemporary villa!

5 of 5
Visited this villa in May 2016 as a family of four. What a wonderful arrival and very much as the pictures describe. Fabulous quality with lots available for the children to play with. It's close to the nearby Praca which will love to frequent. The pool was exceptionally clean and enjoyed by us all. Whilst there is a cost to the pool, we felt it was worth it. Lovely quiet complex. We always like a 'home from home' style villa that is of a high standard and this met our expectations. Would definitely recommend this villa for a family or couples. To make our holiday even more special, my son was super excited to see the Welsh football team staying opposite whilst training for the Euros! Perfect given we are Welsh!

This is a great villa

We were delayed 7 hours but the housekeeper was still waiting to see us in and make sure we were ok. The villa is fantastic and in a great location. We all had a great time and would use this villa again Thanks Filipe and Mrs Paula
