Supermarket near Forte do vale

Just wondering if anyone knows the nearest supermarket to Forte do Vale? It is our first time to Albuferia so any directions or advice would be great.

Out of the hotel, turn left and follow the road to the 'worms' roundabout. Here is a Pingo Doce, cheap and cheerful.

Small cafe inside which has excellent offers.

A small supermarket on the way, but will be more pricey.

As you come out of back entrance of FDV turn right and you will come to the Blue Supermarket within 1 minutes walk. Walk on the same side for another few minutes and you will come to a SPAR then a little bakery.

If you want to do a bigger shop theres the huge Modelo within about 10 mins walk. Again come out the back entrance. Cross over the road at the Blue Supermarket and you will see a small park. Cut through there

and walk up to the left (its a dirt track). This will bring you out at the side entrance to Modelo.

Used the local bus service to Vilamoura last week and was surprised just how easy it was, would definately recommend it, although it cost us just over 8 euros return and the ticket shops are offering a shuttle return for 8 euros too

Laura1961, we are flying out there Monday, Nice apartments, good size rooms, There is a nice breakfast place round the corner called Bora Bora, follow Goodtotravels directions (post3) and after the little blue supermarket it is on the next corner. Hope that helps you.

Ps: The back entrance is by the Forte Do Vales bar.

Ray B .....Better than 22 euros in a taxi eh!

Fantastic place to stay, Modelo is the place to shop. Side entrance ,over the road ,thru small parkland and into side entrance of Modelo. Great bakery also thru side entrance ,walk straight up passed the small island and shops on right. only a 5min walk. Just after booking our 4th trip there in 4yrs or nearly 5years it opened. Beautiful place would always recommend to anyone .
