Things to do on holiday in Santa Barbara de Nexe, Portugal

The most important attraction in Santa Barbara de Nexe is the 400 year old church which stands in the centre of the village. Gleaming in the sunlight, the whitewashed church and bell tower is hugely admired by both locals and visitors alike, who flock to see the brilliant Gothic/Manueline style of the building and the varied styles of the interior. Estoi Palace and the Roman site at Milreu are also very close by and well worth investigating during a holiday to Santa Barbara de Nexe.

Although a Santa Barbara de Nexe holiday villa is perfect for a relaxing break, there are a number of entertainment and leisure options with which to keep you occupied. There are many options for walking throughout the surrounding countryside, wandering through fruit orchards and rolling hills, but the favourite route for those taking a Santa Barbara de Nexe holiday villa leads from the village up to the Bronze Age hill fort outside the town. This route is especially popular in the late afternoon, as temperatures drop, and visitors try to walk of their huge restaurant lunches!

Santa Barbara de Nexe is perfect for the beaches of the Algarve too. You can be stretched out on the sand within 15 minutes of leaving a Santa Barbara de Nexe holiday villa, or organising a scuba diving, sailing or windsurfing lesson, a deep sea fishing trip or sightseeing tour of Portugal’s most famous coastline.

There is no shortage of golfing opportunities from a Saint Barbara de Nexe holiday villa either. Like much of the Algarve, Santa Barbara de Nexe is surrounded by a surprising number of top quality golf courses. Many offer 18 holes, but all offer spectacular views and undulating fairways, providing a challenge for any golfer, new or old.

                                                                                              We had the most relaxing holiday at Monte Das Pedras. The villa is in a beautiful setting on a hillside. It was very clean and tidy, the maid comes twice a week. The pool is fabulous and a lovely size 9x5 approx, the shallow end is 1.25m which was perfect for me as someone who likes to be able to touch the bottom. The deep end was 2.25m which was great for my husband who is a confident swimmer. There are numerous terraces to sit on, including a nice size roof terrace for star gazing. The views from the front terrace are stunning and the garden surrounding the villa is very well laid out. We wanted a relaxing holiday and thats exactly what we got. The driveway is quite steep but its fine in 1st gear. It only took about 30 minutes from Faro Airport. The villa is a nice size and well equiped, there are shutters on the doors and windows and a security alarm which makes you feel safe and secure. We went to the municipal market in Loulé one Saturday morning and loved it. If you like fresh fish this is the place to go and it was very reasonably priced. They also had meat, honey, fruit and veg, wine and a couple of small pottery/gift shops inside and around the outside. Google maps took us to the Gypsy market by mistake, which we didn't like at all. It was stalls put up on a disused building site, fake handbags and purses everywhere. Although there were a couple of nice linen stalls. We drove in to Tavira one morning which was lovely, there are loads of restaurants and a small ruined castle (just some of the outer walls are left) but the view is wonderful and it is free. The villa is only about a 12 minute drive from the large Continente Supermarket on the outskirts of Loulé. We also went to the smaller Intermarche supermarket in Sao Bras de Alportel but preferred the Continente. Angela the owner was very quick responding to any questions I had. There was a small welcome pack which was much appreciated at 11.15pm! We would definitely recommend this villa to friends and family, however if you have any trouble walking or climbing a few steps it is probably not suitable. Thank you Angela for allowing us to stay in your wonderful villa.

The Villa's large pool and garden are well kept with all you could want for a perfect holiday. We particularly made use of the different eating and relaxing areas around the pool and on the terrace with an excellant kitchen and of course the air conditioning which is really important in Portugal. The Villa is spacious and has a great feeling of calm. With good resturants and small towns to visit, including Faro which has a nice beach to enjoy we certainly made the most of our holiday. We will be returning in August next year so will book early.

The pool and BBQ area were well used and perfect (though BBQ hadn't been cleaned by previous tenants sadly). Clean, spacious, minimalist rooms and excellent air conditioning proved to be invaluable during the hottest parts of the day. Our baby slept really well in the cot provided and the high chair was perfect and easy to clean with the outside tap. My only criticisms are small and didn't dampen our holiday in the slightest. The water never gets hot, only warm... So not so great for cleaning baby bottles. The neighbours are doing some refurbishments, this could prove irritating though we found them reasonably descrete. Perhaps it would be helpful to have a few more basic kitchen essentials like washing machine liquid, olive oil, pepper etc. The lack of WIFI was great for getting away from work, but will clearly be missed by some visitors. The housekeeper was lovely and very helpful though seemed suprised by our arrival and wasn't quite ready for us. We had a great holiday and would return again if we chose the Algarve.
