Cheryl, you and your house make holidaying with a large group so easy. From booking to end of holiday was brilliant. The grandchildren absolutely loved it and the pool was ideal. We were sad to leave.

About the neighbourhood
Kayaking near Lagos is a great way to explore the caves along the coast. The Moorish town, Silves, is on the river & has a castle, cistern well in the archaeological museum, magnificent cathedral & the Cruz de Portugal (Cross of Portugal). Lots of shops & lovely restaurants to enjoy. Rui's restaurant is very good for seafood, the English Cafe near the castle has great views or try one of the riverside restaurants. The area around the villa is very peaceful as it is in a protected nature reserve and you are only 5 minutes away from the shops in S B Messines and 15 minutes from the historical town, Silves. Some of the best beaches in the Algarve, Falesia and Olhos d'Agua are only 20 minutes away. Silves is the perfect setting for the annual Medieval Festival in August with it s narrow,...
Getting around
A car is necessary. The train from the Tunes rail station routes up north to Lisbon. The train from the Messines-Alte rail station routes south to Lagos stopping at interesting towns such as the historical town Silves, Ferragudo, Portimao, Meia Praia (lovely beach), and Lagos or you could go directly to Albufeira.
