The Area: Armacao De Pera - Algarve, Central Algarve
Our nearest town is Armacao de Pera, once a small fishing village, but is now a thriving holiday resort. The town is renown for it's 2 mile long sandy beach, stretching to Salgados. The beach offers a host of beach bars, and water sports such as wind surfing, jet skiing, paragliding, water skiing, pedaloes, banana boats and much more. The local fishermen supplement their earnings by offering visits to the coves and grotto's or further out to sea to watch the Dolphins.
The palm tree lined promenade provides many restaurants, bars, clubs, shops, supermarkets, and banks. There is a fresh fish and vegetable market 6 days a week, and on Wednesday and Saturdays the stalls are swelled by visiting locals from the Monchique area who sell home grown produce. Don't ask for chicken - you will be offered a live one!
The villa is also within a short distance of a quaint village called Porches. The village has a large church a few shops, but is famous for the two restaurants 'Oleao' and Porches Velho. The latter is a converted 'adega' or wine store. Oleao is the most famous and provides wonderful food and wines, and is more suited for that 'special occasion'.
The area is very central for the many golf courses in the Algarve, but we do have three within a short distance of the villa - Salgados only 10 minute drive away, Silves Golf only 6/7 minutes and the newest one 'Amendoreia' only 3/4 minutes away. The other popular attractions include: Zoomarine based at Guia - a wonderful day out for all the family. Here you can swim with the dolphins, but at a cost! Water parks, such as Aqualand is only 3 minutes drive away and is ideal for the family with children over 8 years. Slide & Splash at Lagoa is more suited to the families with very young children. All the water parks have good facilities, and all mentioned are recommended for at least one visit per holiday (if you can get away with only one!)
