About the area
The villa is beautifully situated on top of a hill in a small traditional village which is home to some foreigners, but the village still feels quite typical of Portugal. Small farms are the nearest neighbors and there are some animals around without disturbing the domestic peace. From the house there are miles wide view and one can even see the sea.
One can easily speak English with the people. I can recommend to rent a bike as transportation. During July and August the temperature can rise up to 35 degrees Celsius, but since the villa is located on a hill the wind cools it down. In spring and autumn, this is fantastic! In March the entire landscape is in full bloom and it is warm enough to only wear a t-shirt. By the end of April the pool is warm enough to enjoy and stays warm until October. The major part of Algarve has a lot of tourism during the summer and especially August since it is the Portuguese’s own holiday month. The ocean is generally warmer here then on the west coast. The beaches are long and very beautiful. There are many things to see and many activities around. Algarve is famous for its many golf courses and lively night life.
