Although the villa is a fair walk from the local shops and bars (15 mins), we found it ideal. The kids had plenty to do round the pool, and often went to the nearby hotel for pancakes. We didn't bother hiring a car, but did plenty of shops at Lidl for food and drinks. If you don't hire a car, I'd recommend using Uber for taxi's, very reasonable and can pinpoint your location. The marina is very nice with plenty of bars and restaurants, but I'd also recommend Quarteira promenade too, a few hidden gems there at very reasonable prices. In summary, a brilliant villa in a stunning location, it was such a relaxing holiday, 10 days was not long enough. We would definitely return.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

There was plenty of accommodation and resources - kitchen equipment and utensils, tables, chairs and sunbeds - for everyone to be comfortable. The gardens, grounds and pool are particularly attractive. The beach and the Marina are a genuine 10 minute walk from the villa. Would thoroughly recommend the villa for a large group who want to be together but at the same time have individual space.
