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

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

                                                                                                      5 of 5

Close to all amenities including local restaurants serving food as diverse as Nepalese, steakhouse, Indian and traditional Lisboa at very reasonable prices. The area is served by local markets and you can buy anything from a couple of oranges to a full weeks shopping at the local Lidl. The big bonus is that the location is on the famed Tram 28 route .. no need to Q at the terminus. The owner met us on the day and explained the facilities. Cable TV is supplied with a large variety of multi lingual channels ... the wi fi is excellent and we did not lose signal at any time. We would freely recommend to anyone

The area is very quiet and a short walk to a grocery store and the mercado di ribiera. The only thing we missed were an electric kettle and the shower head holder for the en suite bathroom. The beams gave the apartment a certain style or look but one of us bumped his head on it so in that regard, visitors need time to get used to them definitely. Diogo was very helpful and responded within minutes for every query and even visited to help us once even if it was after 10pm.

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
