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

The place was lively, but not noisy, at night with traditional Fado entertainment, restaurants and cafes. We took the No.28 tram (a lovely experience in itself) into town very easily from the Port de Sol nearby. We were able to fit in loads of sightseeing as everywhere was accessible by public transport. Eating at The Teatro Mini Bar was one of the highlights of the trip, plus Torre de Belém, Time Out Market, Escher exhibition, Santa Justa Elevador, National Tile Museum and more. João greeted us with wine and biscuits and was the perfect host. Emma and Neil

A lovely, spacious, top floor apartment (south facing) welcomed with a start up supply of food/drink to get us settled in. Margarida, the owner, couldn’t have done more for us - extremely friendly and helpful. Carcavelos is a lovely town and we enjoyed walking down to the beach almost every day. The train station was only 10 minutes walk away, which provided easy access to Libon to the east and Cascais to the west...... we cannot wait to return again and to enjoy this apartment. Highly recommended! Many thanks Margarida (& Diana, her daughter).
