In addition there is a large landing area with a built in office desk.
The pool is large - approximately 18m x 7m and is close to the house, so if you have children it is easy to keep an eye on them. There is a well-defined shallow end, which is good for toddlers.

In the immediate area, there are some amazing beaches. Castelo and Evaristo, both picturesque sandy coves, are the closest, less than a 10 minute walk. A little further on you will come to Coelha and Sao Rafael and in the opposite direction Lourenco and Galé. All are beautiful and sandy. Galé is a wonderful long flat expanse of sand safe for children and for the more energetic, you can walk from Galé to Armação da Pera along the beach, a distance of some 3 or 4 kilometres. It is also a great place to watch the breathtaking Algarvean sunsets. The whole area also offers lovely cliff top walks. Additionally there are many smaller coves scattered along this part of the coast, some only accessible by foot. Most of the beaches have sun beds and there is a variety of water sports on offer.
A few minutes’ walk from the villa is a mini market where you can buy most things for your everyday needs and 10 minutes down the road you will find a larger supermarket which is always well stocked with freshly baked bread every day, a delicatessen, a butcher and a fishmonger. Within easy walking distance there is a choice of good restaurants and bars. Within a few minutes’ drive there is a wider selection of restaurants, ranging from traditional Portuguese to Chinese, Indian and Italian.
Just 5 minutes by car is the lively Old Town of Albufeira where there are numerous restaurants and bars, live music, shops, banks, post offices, tourist information and most things you need for your holiday in the sun. On the way you will come across Albufeira’s colourful marina where you can relax and enjoy a drink or meal in one of the excellent restaurants overlooking the water front. Here you can also pick up many water borne activities such as boat trips, fishing, dolphin watching and jet ski hire.
Golf courses are plentiful along the Algarve, the nearest being Salgados, which is a 5 minute drive. The 2 courses at Alcantarilha “Faldo Amendoeira” designed by Nick Faldo and “O’Connor Amendoeira” are about a 15 minute drive as are the 9 hole courses at Balaia and Pinecliffs. Others, such as the 5 award winning courses at Vilamoura and in the opposite direction Vale de Milho, Gramacho and Pinta (near Carvoeiro) are no more than a 30 minute drive.
Many of the Algarve’s attractions are within easy reach – Zoomarine (where you can swim with the dolphins), Water parks, Krazyworld, numerous excursions, safari trips, diving, horse riding, tennis, go-karting and more.
There are buses that run 6 times a day into Albufeira, or Galé and Guia in the opposite direction. The bus stop is a few minutes' walk away. The pick up point for excursion buses and water park buses is in the same place. In addition, there is a sightseeing "hop on hop off" bus that runs in a loop from Sta Eulalia on the east side of Albufeira to Salgados to the west at regular intervals during the day. Municipal taxis and private hire taxis are all reasonably priced. Car hire is not essential for your stay at this villa, but to make the most of your holiday in the Algarve we would recommend it for at least part of your time. There are so many wonderful places to see, it is a shame not to sample a few.
The house is suitable for families or couples and is ideally located for those who want peace and quiet, but be relatively near to all amenities.
