Villa Location
Villa Canas is located on the Vale das Canas private complex, along with our Villas Beirais and Amora, which have communal facilities including a tennis court. A great choice of eateries, shops, golf facilities and beautiful beaches can also be found within a few minutes' drive. Around 2 miles north, there's the neighbouring resort of Almancil, a bustling village, whilst the beautiful Praia do Garrao Beach is a little further, too.

Location features

Local markets and shopping

Quinta do Lago and neighbouring Vale do Lobo are perfect for a spot of retail therapy. A mile south of the villa are the Bougainvillea Plaza and Quinta Shopping centres, which have a huge choice of chic and fashionable shops, as well as a supermarket and a nightclub. Just a couple of miles north, you'll find the neighbouring resort of Almancil - a thriving village with all manner of shops and amenities. Alternatively, visit Loule's colourful traditional market, picking up the odd souvenir along the way.

Bars and restaurants

There are also excellent restaurants to suit all pallets in the Quinta do Lago area, from simple Portuguese to quality international cuisine, plus a choice of great beach bars. Alternatively visit Almancil, or just a little further on is Vilamoura's international yachting marina. There are plenty of chic bars and restaurants here for you to try. There is even a casino, where you can try your luck!


The closest beach is 3 miles away at Praia do Garrao, this is just part of the fabulous sands that stretch for miles along the coast here. You will be truly spoilt for choice!

Family fun

There are lots of opportunities for family outings in the Algarve, ranging from a trip to the Ria Formosa Nature Park to the Aquashow Waterpark.

Place of interest

If you wish to explore further why not visit Faro's historic old town where you will find marvellously preserved medieval quarters, museums, churches and a chapel?

Golf and other sporting activities

If you fancy a round or 2 of golf, there are plenty on offer, as both Quinta do Lago and Vale do Lobo are home to some great courses. There are also other sporting facilities including tennis, horse riding and go-karting all within 7 miles.

Remember ...

Every villa comes with its own manual, complete with details of the best restaurants, taxis, local amenities and activities. And of course, our reps are on hand to make sure you love your holiday more. If you need any advice or tips on the local area, they will be more than happy to help.

Activities and things to do
Pinetrees Horse Riding Centre
Located between Quinta do Lago and Vale do Lobo, Pinetrees Riding Centre provides a high standard of riding tuition, taught by qualified teachers. Lessons are available for beginners as well as experienced riders with ponies for very young children.

Activities on offer include one to one and group sessions, nature walks and treks. The centre welcomes disabled riders with some experience and with medical and (under 18s) parental approval. Riding equipment such as boots, hats and jodhpurs are provided. (Tel. 289 394 369/489)

Vale de Lobo golf courses
Two courses are based at Vale do Lobo. The Royal is the main course, opening with an easy par 5 after which the fairways become tighter and the greens better protected.

The par 3 ninth is the most memorable. The green lies on a peninsula built into an artificial lake and is played at different angles depending on which tee you choose to use.

The sixteenth hole is possibly the most photographed in Europe. It is 210 metres long and crosses two ravines. Teeing off on a cliff top is an exhilarating experience and somewhat nerve-racking on a blustery day.

The other course is the Ocean Course, which is no less difficult and equally scenic.

The courts are overlooked by the centre’s clubhouse which includes a bar, a shop and satellite TV, where you can relax after a game or join one of the regular social events.
Ria Formosa Nature Park
This vast protected area covers some 71 square miles. It was established to preserve the natural resources on which the local population depend for most of their traditional activities such as fish and shellfish farming, traditional fishing and salt production.

Amongst other natural attractions, the nature park is home to wetlands, indigenous fauna and flora and migratory species.

Quinta do Lago Water Sports Centre
Catering for water babies of all ages, the centre offers a terrific range of both lake and beach water sports. Windsurfing, canoeing, kayaking and rowing are available on the lake or try a mini course in sailing, windsurfing or water skiing.

Beachside water sports range from the challenging to the relaxing. Get your adrenalin going with high energy sports including parasailing, water skiing and jet skiing or go a little slower on a pedalo. Family beach activities are on offer or try a power boat tour along the coastline. (Tel. 289 394 929)

Villa Canas Customer Reviews

Suzie Beadle, 24-Aug-2013

We were a group of 12 in total and loved having our own separate spaces as well as being all in one location. Photos on the website don't do the villa and outdoor areas justice! We would definitely book here again!
