The villa is located in an estate with solely big detached villa´s, partly lived in by residents, partly by visitors. There are no evening/night activities, you retreat from the coastal hassle, still you´re only minutes away from (the beach of) Luz, a small coastal village offering several bars, café´s, restaurants and little supermarkets for the smaller grocery needs. The bigger supermarkets (Lidl, Intermarché) are in Lagos (at 6km), a thriving coastal town with a huge variety of bars, café´s, international cuisine restaurants, nightlife and a pedestrian shopping area in the atmospheric old centre with lots of boutiques. Boulevard is linking the old part of Lagos with the harbour, going west several little bay beaches and spectacular rock formations, especially the magnificent Ponta da Piedade, best to be enjoyed in one of the typical Portuguese fisherman´s boats, at low tide even taking you into the caves. Going east you´ll find the kilometre long beach of Meia Praia.
Golf: Golf is definitively the most popular sport in the Algarve, no wonder when realising the climatological conditions all year round and the exceptional beauty of lay outs (most of them by famous international golf architects) and surroundings. Read below a selection of 4 excellent golf courses in your region out of the Algarve' approximately 30 golf courses; Palmares Course: the breathtaking scenery can be appreciated from most of the course, with views over the Alvor river estuary, beaches and the bay of Lagos. There are 5 authentic links holes amongst the dunes close to the ocean exposed to the prevailing winds. Other holes throughout hillsides and valleys full of trees. Penina Course: it has hosted the Portuguese open 8 times and is built on flattish parkland terrain with fairways lined by countless trees and with tricky water hazards. Also several long par-3 and par-4 holes, requiring both length and accuracy. Alto Course: it boasts a majestic site overlooking the ocean and with views inland towards the Monchique hills. Some 10.000 trees were planted on the course and have attracted a large variety of birds. The course is not overly difficult and can be enjoyed by golfers of all standards. Golf do Morgado; recently opened, almost a 1000 acres, making it the biggest golf course in the Algarve. Beautiful scenery, pure nature, no villas/apartments but 6 lakes, hills, valleys, 1000's of olive, carob and fig trees, the unspoilt Algarve!
