About the neighbourhood
The Algarve is famous for its golf courses, beautiful coastline and beaches. The nearest golf to the apartment is the course at Salgados just a few minutes away. The choice of beaches is endless, from long sandy stretches backed with dunes to small rocky coves, some with little beach bars where you can have a leisurely lunch of barbecued sardines with a glass or two of local wine.
There are some exciting water slide parks within a five minute drive as well as the famous Zoo Marine with its wonderful dolphins. Zoo Marine is one of the only venues in Europe where you can swim with the dolphins and watch a movie in a 4D cinema, its incredible!
