Villa Location
Villa Caracole enjoys an enviable location in the quaint resort of Guia - home of the famous spicy chicken piri piri - 3 ¼ miles North West of Albufeira. Situated on the hillside with marvellous countryside views, Villa Caracole is within easy reach of the resorts' facilities and Castelo's beautiful golden beach by car.

Location features


Villa Caracole enjoys a secluded location perched on the Guia hillside within a citrus farm, reached by a narrow cul-de-sac lane. The centre of Guia (2 miles East) has numerous restaurants and is renowned for its' speciality dish - spicy chicken piri piri.

There is a choice of lovely beaches within a 15 minute drive, ranging from the sandy expanses of Galé and Praia Grande to picturesque coves such as Castelo and Coelho, all with snack bar/restaurants.

Albufeira lies 3 ¼ miles to the South East, nowadays a thriving tourist area, but where evidence of Moorish history can still be seen along its narrow cobbled streets.

The older part of Albufeira is ideal to get a taste of the past: narrow streets, handicraft shops, tiny cottages painted in traditional Algarve colours. Markets sell locally caught fish and fresh produce from the local fields – all this alongside the wide shopping streets and lively atmosphere of a popular holiday resort. It also boasts a beautiful and expansive sandy beach, flanked by dramatic cliffs and rock formations.

Past Albufeira is the neighbouring resort of Praia D’Oura with its' thriving nightlife scene. 8 ½ miles South West is Armaçao de Pera; another resort town boasting an impressive large, golden beach.

For a great family day out there is a choice of waterslide parks and the Zoomarine aquarium and dolphin show. For golfers the nearest course is Salgados, just over 5 miles away.

For those wishing to explore more widely, Villa Caracole’s central location means that almost anywhere across the Algarve can be reached in an hour or so by car.

Salgados golf course
One of the many courses in the Algarve, it was once an aircraft landing strip and wetland area beside a bird sanctuary.

It has been compared to both a Scottish links course and a water-filled Florida course and if you enjoy water challenges this course is for you.

The par 4 seventh is rated amongst the best holes in Portugal. The final three holes decrease in difficulty allowing golfers to ease up after a testing first 15.
