Make a holiday apartment in Raposeira your home away from home

Raposeira is one of the small localities that make up the small town of Vila do Bispo which, in turn, is part of the Algarve region of southern Portugal. Vila do Bispo is a town that marries the new with the old with a town centre characterised by medieval architecture and surrounded by more modern constructions. In addition to a plethora of attractions, visitors staying in Raposeira holiday homes will have many restaurants to choose from. They will also be close enough to the locality’s pristine beaches to be able to embark on basking sessions without any trouble. Staying in the Raposeira holiday homes is a great experience in itself as the villas and apartments are spacious, tastefully furnished and surrounded by immaculate yards. Some of these Raposeira holiday rentals have swimming pools and command spectacular views.

-Beaches: The uncrowded beaches of this part of Algarve provides a unique experience for visitors as they ingest amazing views. This part of Algarve is blessed with beautiful countryside which features stretches of unspoilt beaches, over 20 in total. Those looking for a secluded spot for a romantic beachside picnic will find plenty of these here.

These include scuba diving courtesy of a number of diving centres which provide both lessons for beginners and the necessary gear. During the cooler season visitors will find perfect surfing conditions.

-Golf: Vila do Bispo is home to a lovely golf course in the name of Parque da Floresta. This picturesque facility is located on a hillside and is dotted with palm trees as well as a number of ponds and rivers. Both amateurs and more seasoned golfers will enjoy the bunkers and other challenges presented by the course.

-Historical attractions: History buffs won’t have to travel too far from their Raposeira holiday homes to behold the majesty of the 18th century church whose tower dominates the Vila do Bispo landscape. This edifice is simply a work of art; on the gilded altar is a captivating statue of Our Lady of the Conception and there are wonderfully decorated blue tiles that cover the central nave. The town itself, with its quaint, whitewashed houses and narrow streets, is a picture of medieval existence.

-Ancient fortress: For another history lesson visitors should visit the fortress that is said to have been built on the site of Saint Vicente’s grave. This structure houses a lighthouse that is an improvement on a beacon installed in 1515 to guide ships safely to shore. Also within the fortress is a monastery of Hieronymite Friars.

The sitting room has lovely views over palm trees and it's perfect for sitting outside enjoying the afternoon sun. It's within a 5 minute walk from a large Supermarket, equally it's a 5 minute walk to restaurants, bars, etc., on the Marina. We had the use of the marina swimming pool, but it was rather cold, but then, we visited in March. I chose this apartment having read the earlier reviews and it exceeded my expectations, I would re-book without any hesitation at all, Tracey was available at all times should we have needed any assistance but quite frankly all the information you need is in a booklet which has been thoughtfully provided. Great restaurants when you walk into Lagos, go beyond the touristy ones, great value. We also used the train station nearby to visit other areas, would recommend this as very cheap to use! Overall we had a fantastic break, very reasonable prices, very comfortable apartment. Difficult not to re-book immediately.

Excellent communication from the owner, terrific double bed with the view of the sea, great shower and a super comfotrable new couch to relax on when staying in. All this making for a great holiday. We will definately return just as soon as we can. Loved it .... Paul T.

The apartment was ideally situated in the old town just minutes away from bars and restaurants. The boardwalk wasn't far and a must to have a stroll along, we did a couple of other walks straight from the apartment. There were stretches of beautiful sandy beaches. Everything you needed was in the apartment it was comfortable and quiet and has a lovely roof terrace with loungers. An allocated parking space is available if you hire a car. Sjef and Els were very helpful and Suzanne friendly and accommodating. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this apartment and would definitely stay there again.
