We stayed at this beautiful villa for ten days. The villa itself is conveniently situated to get to the beach, town or many of the tourist attractions in the area. You definitely require a car as the villa is in a residential area off the main road and not close to any form of public transport that I spotted.
We used the beach at Vilamoura (about 10 minutes drive away) as it has a wonderful sandy beach and the town surrounding the marina gives a great choice of restaurants and cafes for lunch.
Another good day out if you take a drive to ValedeLobo where again there is a lovely beach and check out a few of the 'side roads' on the way back to see how the other half live!
This is a lovely and spacious villa that really does provide everything you need - it does not feel like a 'holiday home' because nothing is missing, you have everything you require from comfortable and well furnished living areas to pegs and washing powder for your laundry! I would not hesitate to recommend this villa to anyone wishing to explore this lovely part of Portugal.
