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.

The best break ever!

5 of 5
I chose this stunning villa for my hen do with 11 friends. I could not not have picked a better place. I was worried that it looked too good to be true but it delivered on every level. Firstly, the booking was simple and i had great communication from Victoria the owner who answered any questions i had promptly. The villa is only a 20 minute taxi ride from the airport and so close to the shops and the marina that you dont need a car if you are planning a relaxing break. The villa is super, gorgeous outside area and lovely spacious rooms with everything you need including wifi if you need it. We loved lounging by the pool and walking around the marina trying out the sangria and local food which is delicious. The weather was perfect - in fact the whole stay was perfect. All 12 of us want to go back and miss it so much! Thank you so much everyone!

Great Villa

5 of 5
Me and my wife, my mother and father-in-law, and our 3-year-old daughter had a great time in July 2017. The villa was deceptively large with 4 large bedrooms. The lounge and outdoor areas are excellent with a nice outdoor seating area and BBQ. The villa was very clean on our arrival. The pool is just out the back, and the way al the villas are laid out is extremely well planned - it feels like paradise! The gardeners were at work every day keeping all the grounds nice. Our daughter loved the pool, and we really appreciated that pool toys and games were left in the villa for us. The resort is very nice. The hotel and golf is about a 3 minute walk. We ate in the clubhouse a few times - the setting and food are great. We also had dinner on 2 nights in the wild fire restaurant. This has a kids club with full time staff to entertain the kids whilst you wait for your food. The food was amazing and I cannot say I have been in a nicer restaurant with better service! Vilamoura is about 2 miles down the road, as is quarteira. Vilamoura has a nice marina with nice yachts and restraints. The beach to the West of Vilamoura is exceptional, with some nice restraints on the boardwalk (especially the Thai Restaurant!). To the east of the marina is Quarteira, which also has 2 beaches, but is not as nice as Vilamoura. However, we did get really nice fresh fish from the fish market (Go early!!). There is a large supermarket on the way to Quarteira which was like a tesco's extra, but with more interesting food. We also visited Tavira for the day which is more of a traditional town - you can catch the boat to the beach and it makes for a great day out. Overal, we loved our stay and would definitely return!!
