Enjoy the fabulous fresh seafood grilled to order and sample the wines of the region. The Algarve is just 45 minutes away offering more glorious beaches, golf and aqua parks for the children.Local activities include: vineyard tours, wine tasting and dinner, jeep safaris, motor quading and spa days. Stepped in history it is possible to visit historic towns and sites such as Lisbon, Evora, Mertola and Marvao. We will recommend loc...
Getting around
The roads are amazingly quiet and stunningly beautiful at any time of the year. The motorway provides a fast track option, from and to the airports, but even these roads are very quiet and very simple to navigate. Driving here is a pleasure, but you can always hop on one of our bicycles as an alternative way to explore the countryside. We can suggest walking routes, straight from the gates, no need for the car.
