Casa Maracuja offers the best of both worlds. With fabulous privacy, space and tranquillity in its beautiful countryside location of Malhao, it is also very close to the Algarve’s fantastic beaches as well as the tourist hotspots of Albufeira and Vilamoura. Popular with cyclists and hikers, the area surrounding Malhao is known for its wildlife, panoramic views and climbing.

Boliquieme, 4km away, is a typical Portuguese village dating back to the 12th century surrounded by pine trees and almond groves. It is peaceful with cobbled streets and a few cafes where you can watch the locals play their games of dominoes.

East of Malhao, it is definitely worth the drive to the wonderful, riverside town of Tavira. With a host of excellent restaurants and cafes brimming its narrow streets, it is very pretty. It is reached via a delightful tapestry of lush lemon and orange plantations. Tavira is one of the most picturesque places to visit on the Algarve and is famous for its lovely churches as well as its excellent dining. You can cross the estuary by ferry to visit the Ilha de Tavira and its fabulous dunes and swimming. Such a brilliant day out!

The nearest beach is Olhos d’Agua. It gets is name due to the freshwater springs found among the rocks at the eastern end of the beach. At low tide, it is easy to spot them. Olhos d’Agua has retained its welcoming charm. Albufeira is 4km from Olhos d’Agua and is one of the busiest seaside resorts on the Algarve. Founded by Arabs, it has narrow winding streets in the atmospheric Old Town, a beautiful promenade, stunning cliff walks, its lovely Tunel and Peneco beaches, world-class golf courses, water parks, zoos, boutique designer shopping and a trendy modern marina, brimming with luxury yachts.
Vilamoura is modern, lively and sophisticated. It boasts 6 renowned golf courses with the Portugal Masters taking place every year at the superb Victoria Golf Course. Sports enthusiasts can also enjoy horse riding, football and tennis. Vilamoura is known for its hedonistic party scene with trendy bars, beach clubs, professional DJ’s and a choice of nightclubs. At the heart of Vilamoura is the exclusive marina complex, brimming with million-dollar yachts, gourmet restaurants and groovy bars. The casino is also a hotspot.
Other popular visits in this area include the unspoilt Portuguese market town of Loule, the delightful villages of Almancil and Sao Lourenco and, of course, the stunning islands of the Ria Formosa.
