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.

The apartment has absolutely everything you will need and the owners have thought of everything. Miguel and Fatima were easily contactable at all times and responded quickly to any enquiries we had. Furnished beautifully, and certainly much better than any hotel. All four of us would thoroughly recommend this apartment. We’ve loved having access to the wine, 7 Euros a bottle,and it saved us carrying it back from a supermarket . If we were to return, we would definitely stay here, and we will certainly recommend it to any friends thinking of a future trip to Lisbon.

The pictures are true to this apartment the only thing is there is no kettle and only of the hob rings work if you want to boil a pan of water, other than that perfect. If you like walking this place is right at the top of Lisbon old town but not far from the trams a 5 minute walk as well as a local shopping center.
