The town of Almancil is located in the Algarve's “Golden Triangle”. This area is made up of three resort towns: Quinta do Lago, Quarteira, and Almancil. While the other two are more geared towards the resort crowd, Almancil has retained its original character and is home to many shops and restaurants.

HomeAway has villas in Almancil in various sizes and price ranges. Spacious seaside holiday villas in Almancil can come equipped with satellite television and internet access.

HomeAway accommodations in the chic town of Vilamoura are another option when planning a trip to the region.

Those wishing to stay within the Golden Triangle may want to check out HomeAway's offerings in Quinta do Lago.

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.

We took the owner up on her offer to meet us at the airport (+€20) as it was late and we never would have found it on our own. She also gave us lots of good local information a b out the area. The apartment is on the 3rd floor, but just consider that as conditioning for everwhere else you go in Lisbon. Actually by the end of our 5th day we were both in much better shape. There are lots of local eateries and most offer Fado music and local dishes to select from. In the morning there are a few different café to choose from or buy some coffee and make your own with the coffee maker provided. One of my favorite things about the apartment's location is the bakery just up the street. Great fresh bread and rolls every day to make sandwiches. Anyways, we highly recommend this apartment for a cozy Lisbon getaway. K & R

Plenty of restaurants where locals eat just around the corner. A 5-min walk to the more 'happening' (but also more touristy...) Alfama area. Filipe (owner) and Mrs Ines (housekeeper) could not be nicer or more helpful. On the raised ground floor (only a few steps up) so ideal for the less mobile. The great views from the back of the apartment are because the ground slopes steeply away behind the house i.e. you are on the ground floor, but it's like being on the 4th floor! No hesitation whatsoever in recommending.

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
