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.

Lovely area, fantastic, clean apartment with everything a young family needed

4 of 5
Thank you for a lovely stay. Everything was as described and it was great to have things like a travel cot included, maid service once a week and that lovely sunny garden. We would only suggest for future that the welcome folder should be left on a table for arrival with the pool entry key in as we didn't know about this so had to go to the management place. Also info on the restaurants and local area would be good. Minor thing as everything else was wonderful

Spacious and comfortable

4 of 5
We had a great week at this deceptively spacious, comfortable apartment. Only slight downside was that access to the pool area was at the end of the block - about a 2 minute walk from the apartment. Also there was only 1 key fob which gave you access in and out of the pool area. This proved quite difficult having to relay the keys back and forth to the apartment for five people. Other than that the apartment was comfortable and clean with all amenities you could wish for. Two spacious bathrooms and bedrooms, excellent air conditioning throughout, sky television on both tv's and lovely big balcony. Marianne, the owner and Lynda, the woman who looked after the apartment were lovely and couldn't do enough for you. Marianne made sure she helped me with any query I had from booking in March, to the stay in July, even when on holiday herself. Would definatley stay again. The location of the apartment itself was convenient for the restaraunts, golf club, pool and shops. I preffered this area to vilamora marina as it was much more peaceful with still things going on at the evening, without the noise and expense of the marina. Thanks very much Marianne.
