About the neighbourhood
Ideally located just 15 minutes walk to the fishing village of Olhos de Agua with shops, supermarkets, restaurants and small bars. The lovely beach of Maria Luisa is also just 15 minutes walk. Olhos de Agua is situated between Vilamoura and Albufeira with the former about 15 minutes by car and the latter just 7 to 8 minutes drive away. The villa is a short drive from Faro Airport, around 35 minutes. Golf courses are plentiful with the nearby 9 hole Sheraton Pine Cliffs while Vilamoura boasts no less than half a dozen courses, and you have the 9 hole Balaia village golf course just 10 minutes’ walk from the house. There are several water parks close by (seasonal opening) as is the excellent Zoomarine with famous Dolphin shows.
Getting around
We have our own mini bus which guests can use during their stay as a private taxi - this is cheaper than using local taxis and much more convenient.
