It's only about 5 minutes walk from the centre of the old town, where you will have restaurants and bars of every description at your disposal.

Great location with views over the beach, Short walk into old town. Nice restaurant on the steps by the tunnel ( you will come across the tunnel on your walks it's below the Sol E Mar hotel ) its called Casa Da Fonte. Also try 'O Tunnel ' opposite on the other steps.

For a drink with local ex-pats and visitors find Tunes bar, above the tunnel close to the Sol e Mar hotel, It's 5 or 6 minutes walk from Vila S Vicente. Tunes is open all day every day except Wednesdays when it's a 3pm opening.

Owner is an ex-policeman from UK.

Okay...cheers :) I assume the Rocamar is nearby? Is there a small supermarket for beer and snacks nearby ...and, I believe that the rooms dont have a fridge..is this correct?

If you have stayed before, could I trouble you with a few more questions?

Thanks in advance
