Make sure you visit the 13th century Cathedral in the square and the beautiful Episcopal Palace nearby. The golden church of Nossa Senhora do Carmo certainly lives up to its name with wonderful gold leaf woodwork.

The nearby village of Estoi has the remains of a Roman villa which enjoyed surprisingly modern home comforts for its time!

We enjoyed a terrific week here and would definitely love to return in future. Great place to stay when the weather's good and nothing else to do but laze around, or in, the generous sized pool. It is within easy reach of the Marina (35 minute walk) and its a 5 minute cheap taxi ride back. If like us (8 adults) you have a rainy day then the games room and lounge come into their own! With large bright rooms we all felt we had our own space and the sheer size of the lounge and games room meant the house never felt crowded. Comfortable beds and settees, nice bathrooms, plenty of balconies and outside areas to relax in and a quiet residential area around you. Also within a 15 minute drive of Albufeira so well-positioned for access to golf and the Old Town.

We were met by Jane and her husband Graeham and were immediately welcomed with warmth and caring which lasted throughout our stay. The cottage had everything we needed and the sole use of the beautiful pool was wonderful. There is so much to see and do in the Algarve and we enjoyed visiting the quieter tourist areas within the region. Tavira is a pretty town and for a quiet and beautiful beach we liked Manta Rota. Alcoutin, which borders Spain, has a small river beach and a castle. Driving back through the hills was great with hardly any traffic. Alte is lovely and so is Loule, just 10 minutes away with a wonderful Saturday market. We saw so many fabulous sights but what really made our break were Jane and Graeham. You couldn't wish for nicer hosts, who also invited us to join them for a few social events. Their two dogs, Charlie and Megan are pretty special too!
