About the neighbourhood
Smart residential area. Lots of similar buildings around safe and secure
Huge Continente Hypermarket short walk. Open 7 days a week till late has Cinema Food Court, Cash Machines. McDonalds nearby and Petrol stations.

Aqua shopping complex 5 minute drive open 10-10 7 days a week

Cafes close by ideal for breakfast.

Walk up to Praia Da Rocha takes about 15 minutes and its straight to the beach and nightlife ( but without the noise at night)

On request I can help with suggesting local restaurants , places to go etc as I have 10+ years of seeking these out.
Getting around
Taxi's are fairly cheap and cost Euro 5 back from Praia Da Rocha
Taxi's to Alvor about 8-9 Euro's

While a car is recommended as there's lot to see and do, you could use an airport transfer and quite happily walk to Praia Da Rocha, take the bus or get local taxis

Faro airport takes about 50 minutes via the A22 motorway
Car advised
