This home from home is situated just along the river with amazing restaurants on its doorstep. The river offers nice relaxing walks and some great boat trips, either up to the medieval town of Silves or down to the spectacular coastline. There is a river taxi which can take you across to the small and picturesque village of Ferragudo, and during the day the rivers hustle and bustle of life is nice to sit and watch with coffee shops and ice-cream parlours. The evenings come alive with locals venturing out to make the most of the warm evenings and this area is great fun for all the family.
However, if a beach day is what you are craving then you should know that the Algarve’s beaches are rightly famous for their stunning beauty and clean water. Portimão’s award-winning blue-flag beach, Praia da Rocha, boasts a huge expanse of sand with beach bars, restaurants, and all the amenities you could wish for, and can be reached within a 35 minute stroll, or 15 minutes by bicycle via the pretty riverside route. There’s also parking near the beach if you decide to drive.
Travel to the other side of the A22 motorway and experience the thrills of the Portimão race track where you can try your hand at go kart racing, or travel east for 10 kilometres and visit Carvoeiro with it’s traditional Portuguese cove beach and multitude of shops and bars, or head west and sample the more traditional side of Portuguese life in the old city of Lagos, with its modern Marina and traditional old town.
This property is the perfect place to relax and unwind by the pool, or to use as a base for exploring the Algarve’s best beaches, towns, and landmarks. With so much to offer, there is truly something for everyone all-year around!
