Casa Margarida lies on the edge of green belt, just far enough outside the bustle of Carvoeiro to be an oasis of privacy and peace with its beautiful gardens and private pool. The villa is I km. from the village and 1 km. to the nearest beautiful beach Centienes. There are numerous sandy beaches along this stretch of the Algarve with excellent swimming and scenic cliff walks. There are very good golf courses nearby,also tennis,wind surfing and deep sea diving. Small boats can be hired from the beaches to explore the coves or larger boat trips depart from Portimao. Inland, both the towns of Lagoa and Silves are interesting and typically Portuguese. Portimao has good shopping for leather, linens and crafts and there are also many local potteries and markets . For children there is 'Slide and Splash ' and Zoo Marine. The west coast with its fabulous beaches is now easily accessible and the Monchique Mountains are another area of interest.

Other Activities: Restaurants (200 meters) and nearest supermarket (800 meters)
