Cerro Grande, between the old town and the marina, would be a good place also 'Windmill Hill' just about next to it. Both are 10 - 12 minutes walk from the old town, mostly flat, other than the last bit coming back..

My area of Páteo is a little bit further and decidedly uphill. There are a few places rented out here.

This map might help you get your bearings


Cerro Grande is in the bottom left hand corner.

There's also the Caliços area, which is above where it says Health Centre at the top left. There are townhouses and villas for rent in many other areas but some are literally miles from the town. The whole area is very hilly and almost anywhere from the old town and beach is up.

Cerro Grande, as Cubsur says, has the best selection of villas. Part of the area is sometimes also referred to as Cerro da Piedade. You may also find a few villas at Cerro Malpique. All these areas ring the Old Town.
