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.

Fabulous relaxing stay in a great location

5 of 5
We stayed in the apartment for a week and really enjoyed our first trip to Lisbon. The apartment was clean and comfortable. Alberto was very helpful and on hand for sorting out any issues. The terrace was fab and a real asset to be able to unwind after a hard day's sightseeing. He very kindly let us stay for several extra hours on our last day as we had a late flight home. Only other feedback would be that a folder of info would be useful about the area with where the nearest shop was or recommended restaurants, wifi etc rather than just a pile of leaflets and some dvds to play in the dvd player! Also a few bits in the kitchen like another large mug, some Tupperware for leftovers and kitchen roll would have been great touches.

High standard of accommodation

5 of 5
The photographs don't do this apartment justice. It is wonderfully spacious and furnished to a high standard. The complex is very safe with security men at the gate and controlled access to the block. Other residents were quiet and obviously took pride in their surroundings. Pool was always quiet with plenty of loungers and sun umbrellas. Parede itself is small but with a few nice restaurants. We particularly liked the one down at the beach. The apartment is very handy for the train station and Lisbon is about 30 mins away. Caiscais in the other direction is well worth a visit. Would thoroughly recommend this apartment which is ideally situated if you are looking for a holiday where you can combine a beach and city break.
