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.

Travel to Almancil

Faro airport (FAO) is the closest to Almancil; most major UK and European cities have service to and from there. Almancil is located eight miles from Faro airport – car or taxi is the fastest way to get there, the drive taking 15-20 minutes. There is, however, a bus station in Almancil with service to and from Faro city centre. To reach Faro city centre from the airport, a short ride by taxi or bus is necessary.

Clean, very spacious , beautiful views.

A lovely spacious apartment with beautiful views. A very well equipped kitchen which gave a great sense of home from home. Really couldnt have asked anything more. A quiet location with small Portuguese bars and restaurants.

Fantastic apartment with a spectacular view from the terrace!

5 of 5
We loved Lisbon and this apartment! We were met at the apartment by Alberto's lovely friend Cristina, who gave us a quick tour and she was happy to answer any questions we had. This apartment is far more spacious than it looks in the photos. There were only 2 of us staying, but there would still be plenty of space for 4 people. The unusual layout adds to it’s charm. The outside terrace is huge with an amazing view of the bridge over the Tagus. It is well furnished with a table, chairs, sunloungers and BBQ. Perfect for relaxing after a day of sight seeing. The large sun lounge was also ideal for eating in the evening, when it was a bit windy on the terrace. The kitchen is well equipped and also had a selection of the basic requirements for self catering - Condiments, coffee, sugar etc. The bed was very comfortable and the shower was always hot and powerful enough. The location is perfect for the metro, trams and trains, for getting around all the main sights. There is a good selection of restaurants & bars close by, but there is also a couple of mini markets and a butchers shop just around the corner. The market is a short walk down the hill, for fresh fish, fruit & vegetables. So self catering is no problem if you don't want to eat out every night. . A couple of things that weren't a problem for us, but others may want to consider before booking: There is no lift and it is on the 3rd floor. However, it gets easier the more you do it, and the view from the terrace is worth the climb! As said in previous reviews, it can be a bit noisy at night. However, you do have to remember you are right in the heart of a vibrant area of the city. If you want a quiet area, then this is not the place for you. We met Alberto on our first night at the apartment because I had to phone him when we stupidly locked ourselves out! However, he was very nice about it and came over to meet us and sorted it out quickly. It was nice to meet and chat to him, but thankfully we didn't need to bother him for the rest of the week. I am sure if you had any issues during your stay, he would be very helpful. I would recommend this apartment for the location, comfort and view. If we are ever in Lisbon again, I wouldn't hesitate to book this apartment again. Thank you Alberto and Cristina :)
