The villa, Casa Vista Bonita, is an easy drive just 20-25 minute from Faro Airport yet away from the hustle and bustle of tourist areas. Even so it is easily accessible by car to beaches and coastal resorts, and all Algarve amenities (including tennis, golf, waterparks, walking, shopping, culture and history). We are is just outside Sao Bras de Alportel, an attractive "real" Algarve town with a partly restored historic centre, located between Tavira about 20 minutes east, and Loule about 15 minutes west.
All your domestic needs are catered for at a large supermarket some 3 minutes drive from the house, while “Sao Bras” – with its banks, shops, cafes, restaurants and civic amenities - is just a little further beyond. The nearest restaurant (of many in the town and local area) is just a few hundred metres.
