“Not worthy of the name Mountain bikes”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

It's true: the owner is a nice fellow, but truth be told: the mountain bikes are way too small if you're 6 ft or taller. Besides, the gears don't work properly and quite frankly: the overall quality of the bikes is too poor if you plan to cycle more than just a few miles around town; even the owner admitted that.
Nice area though...

“A very convenient location in the Resort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Perfect to have a shop on site for all your needs. It was a self catering holiday we went on so it was great to have the shop on our door step. The children loved to go a get ice cream etc.

“Rent a bike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

Alberto the owner gave us the best advice as to places we could visit on the bikes we rented with him. We saw some very beautiful places and the area around Sagres is just very peaceful and nice to see. Alberto's shop offers a wide variety of clothes, shoes, bags, surf equipment and much more. And the whole staff is very helpful.

“Well run by friendly staff.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

For the bits you need in-between dining out it is perfect, and the fresh daily pastries are well worth getting up for.

“Bike-trip in the mountains”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

We were very pleased with our guided tour and with Alberto who was an excellent teacher and instructor. He guided us through the tough but very beautiful nature of Sagres with humor and information about Sagres and the nature. It is a great experience and we can recommend it. Thank you for two great weeks in Sagres and the great trip, despite of the wind! :-)

Xoxo, Carina, Maria, Lotte, Jacob and Per from Denmark
