Casa Stella is located in the quiet hamlet of Malhao, just 4km across the almond and orange groves and pine forest from the delightful village of Boliquieme. Boliquieme is charming with a few delightful restaurants and bars as well as some helpful shops. The picturesque Paderne is 9km from the villa.  

The nearest beach, Olhos d’Agua, is 12km from the villa. Vilamoura and Albufeira, roughly 14km away, also offer some beautiful beaches. You can visit the lovely Quinta do Lago lagoon where Artur’s Watersports Academy offers surf camps, kids clubs, sailing lessons, pedalos, kayaks and a fun water obstacle course. If you have time, we definitely recommend that you visit the Ria Formosa Nature Park. You can take little ferry boats across to the stunning beaches on the small islands just off the coast.

A popular outing is to the lovely villages of Almancil and the neighbouring Sao Lourenco. Almancil is known for its pottery, so it’s a great place to buy a few souvenirs. The Sao Lourenco Church’s stunning azulejo work dates back to 1730 and is beautiful. The characteristic blue tiles tell the life of its patron saint.

The quaint, historical town of Loule is another great place to visit. It boasts a characterful historic centre and a colourful, Moorish inspired covered market which sells handicrafts as well as local produce and fresh fish. Loule is buzzing on Saturday mornings when there is also a farmer’s market and a colourful gipsy market.

For a sophisticated night out you can head to the chic, impressive marina at Vilamoura. It is lined with classy restaurants and vibrant, buzzy bars. You can take some amazing boat trips from the marina to dolphin watch, fish, partake in watersports or to view the magnificent coastline. The charming Old Town is great for a wander, and those fancying their luck can visit the casino.

There are over 100 restaurants and bars in Albufeira. It is very busy. You may also enjoy excellent boutique shopping, in particular at the Albufeira Shopping Mall. The beautiful beaches and Albufeira’s impressive promenade attract many visitors. The main square, Jardim Publico de Albufeira, boasts open-air restaurants, cafes and bars and frequent live music. The nightlife continues late into the night, especially around the hedonistic ‘Strip’.

THE REGION

Boliqueime offers up a rural slice of the Algarve on Portugal's southern coast. It's right up in the hills, surrounded by pine trees and almond groves. The authentic village atmosphere comes complete with cobbled streets and a square where locals gather to play dominoes. As for beaches and nightlife, Albufeira's within a 15-minute drive.

Despite the laidback setting, there are plenty of activities nearby to keep you on your toes. Vilamoura's just a 15-minute drive away and home to a championship golf course. Meanwhile, ocean lovers can make the most of parasailing from Albufeira's marina or head out on a dolphin-watching trip.

ABOUT THE ALGARVE

Though most people tend to see the Algarve as all about the beaches and a holiday on the Med, there’s far much more to it than that. 

But while you’re enjoying one of our fantastic villas in Algarve, you may well want to take some time out from all that sun worship to explore everything else the region has to offer – so we’ve put together this handy travel guide to give you a little help and inspiration!

Families will love their time at Casa Stella. There is something for everyone. Young ones will love that the garden is huge, there are two swimming pools, one of their own, and there are wonderful games to enjoy. The villa provides table tennis, a pool table and other games. There are also DVD’s for some quiet time after a busy day. 

The nearest beach is Olhos d’Agua which is perfect for families. So many of the beaches on the Algarve are Blue Flag sandy beaches with a good range of watersports provided. You can travel in either direction to find a fantastic one. A good way to see some of the beaches is to take a boat trip from the marina in Albufeira. There are also trips from the marina at Vilamoura. You can enjoy the magnificent coastline, and if you are lucky, you might see some dolphins in the water.

Quarteira’s Aquashow is popular for some thrilling water fun. It boasts a good range of water rides for young children and teenagers that want to be challenged. There are also birds of prey, reptile and parrot shows to enjoy. Aqualand Water Park is situated between Albufeira and Lagoa with slides, a lazy river, various pools and a water playground. Slide & Splash is the third water park in the region with attractions such as the Black Hole, Kamikaze and Big Wave slides. Children also enjoy the activities on the Quinta do Lago lagoon.

For something more sedate you can head to Albufeira’s amusement arcade, bowling alley, crazy golf, pedal karts, trampolines and bouncy castle. There are several places locally where children can enjoy horseriding, tennis or other sports. They might enjoy the mini trains that operate in the larger resorts. Vilamoura also has a bowling alley, pedal go-karts, mini quad bikes and Segways. The marina’s indoor karting track is a high speed and great fun for older children and adults alike.
