Things to do

Praia da Quinta do Lago:

This beach is made up of soft golden sand and clear waters. It runs all the way from the Ria Formosa to Vale do Lobo. There is a wooden walkway that spans the length of the beach. A few restaurants can be found here, many of which have terrific views of the Ria Formosa.

Golf:

The Golden Triangle is home to some of the finest courses in the Algarve. In nearby Vale do Lobo, golfers can play the Ocean and Royal courses, and neighbouring Quinta do Lago has the Pinheiros Altos and San Lorenzo courses. Tee times can be arranged online or by phone.

Olhos de Agua:

The quaint and quiet coastal town of Olhos de Agua is found 15 miles from Almancil. The main street has a few restaurants, bars and shops and leads directly to the town beach, Praia d’Agua. This clean beach is popular with locals and tourists alike.

Sao Lourenco Church:

In 1755 a devastating earthquake shook the Algarve, destroying almost every building. Somehow the Sao Lourenco Church withstood the quake and can be visited to this day. The church was constructed in 1730, its interior decorated with blue tiles and intricate woodwork. It offers a real glimpse into what the Algarve once looked like.

Loule:

Locals and tourists frequent the market hall in Loule to purchase local produce, meats and fish. On Saturdays, Loule comes alive with a weekly gypsy market. Handicrafts such as lace, pots and utensils are for sale, as are homemade delicacies.

Faro:

The historic capital of the region, Faro, is only eight miles away and makes for an interesting day trip. Remnants of the original 13th century city walls and cathedral can be visited. Additionally, boats depart daily from the city centre for the islands of the Ria Formosa.

Weather in Almancil

The Algarve is known for its near-perfect weather conditions: summers are hot with plenty of sunshine and hardly a drop of rain. Average temperatures in July and August fall within the 28-30°C range. September and October are also lovely times to visit with average temperatures of 25°C and minimal rainfall. Winters in Almancil are mild with average temperatures of 15-16°C. November and December see the most rainfall, though to call these months rainy would be a stretch.

Glenn, Guillaume and Shana are exceptional hosts---attentive and responsive, yet unobtrusive. It was easy to arrange a booking, payment and communication with Glenn. The apartment was well maintained, very clean and had lovely decorative touches. The bed was comfortable, large and well-lit for reading. There was plenty of storage space in the bedroom closet. We really enjoyed the shower---plenty of warm water and pressure, a most adjustable shower head and sprayer, and quite spacious. The bathroom was small, but was clean and functional. The terrace attached to the bedroom was charming and had plenty of clothesline for hanging stuff. The Internet connection was fast and efficient. The guidebook was very interesting and helpful. The kitchen, though small, was well supplied with dishware, cutlery and utensils. The fridge was spacious. The entire apartment has very modern windows, which open, close and lock nicely. We really enjoyed listening to the sounds of the charming small street outside our kitchen window. The laundry facility was conveniently located around the corner---it had both washing machines and dryers (which were most appreciated) as were the bathroom and comfortable couch in the waiting area. There are so many great places to eat within short walking distance of the apartment that you wouldn’t need to wander far, unless you wished to. Lisbon itself is a gem of a city---friendly people, wonderful architecture, great public transportation, and a terrific range of shopping and dining. One very small thing we would have liked--- more substantial, fluffier pillows on our bed! When we return to Lisbon, which we unquestionably will, Glenn will be our “go-to-guy” for accommodation. Thanks so much!

Everything was even better than expected. Rooms were spacious, and the location was remarkable. Parede is a beautiful place, with wonderful people. Beach and train stations were an easy walk away (I have four young children and they were happy to walk the short walk to the beach or station). Lisbon was only 20 mins away. We were able to go to a number of different locations including Cascais and Sintra (definitely a must place to visit). We only booked 10 days and that was just not enough, there is plenty to see and do for all ages. The children loved the pool so much, they could have spent all day in there. We will definitely be coming back here next year. Thank you Isabel from the Bhardwa Family

Ideal location 5 mins from town Centre, beach and shops. We felt safe and happy here. Kitchen was a beautiful sunny bright room. Margarida was lovely and helpful.
