About the neighborhood
The Algarve is famous for its golf courses, beautiful coastline and beaches. The nearest golf to the apartment is the course at Salgados just a few minutes away. The choice of beaches is endless, from long sandy stretches backed with dunes to small rocky coves, some with little beach bars where you can have a leisurely lunch of barbecued sardines with a glass or two of local wine. There are some exciting water slide parks within a five minute drive as well as the famous Zoo Marine with its wonderful dolphins. Zoo Marine is one of the only venues in Europe where you can swim with the dolphins and watch a movie in a 4D cinema, its incredible!
How to get there
Flight from Ireland- www.ryanair.com - www.aerlingus.com Flights from UK- www. jet2.com- www.flymonarch.com - www.easyjet.com Driving Directions: From Faro airport take the A22 motorway towards Lagos for approx 25 minutes until you see signs for Guia. When you reach Guia follow signs for Salgados Golf Course (EN1281), approx 3 km form Guia, the apartment is along the way. The apparment is in Vale De Parra on the round-about intersecting roads EN1281 and EN526 Taxi to albufeira from apartment approx €8.50 Car hire- Avis, easyjet, travelsupermaket. (we have used all of these and all relatively inexpensive, depending on the time of the year) There are a few car hire companies, close to the apartment complex if you want to hire when you get there. This does however work out more expensive than pre-booking
