Villa Description

For alfresco dining there is a table with chairs by the pool, complemented by the brick BBQ to one side - perfect for entertaining your party alongside the views over the countryside to the marina and sea in the distance.


The gates from the street open onto a private cobbled driveway with ample parking for 2 hire cars. As you enter the front door the spacious lounge awaits you. Your Very Villa Plus holiday starts here!

Villa Location
Nestled high on the Cerro D'Aguia ridge, Villa Junico sits above Albufeira's colourful marina. The villa has commanding views of the sea and countryside and is only a short distance from the beach at neighbouring Sao Rafael, with a good choice of shops and places to eat a few minutes drive away.

Location features

Local markets and shopping

The local mini market is around 10 minutes' walk away, or for a bigger shop you'll find a supermarket in less than 5 minutes' drive. For souvenir shopping, try the old town of Albufeira, as well as in Praia D'Oura. Or, for serious shoppers, there is a commercial shopping centre in Guia. For those who want to experience some local life, head to the market in Albufeira which is held on a Tuesday. The municipal fruit, fish and vegetable market between Praia D'Oura and Albufeira is open every morning except Sundays. Why not stock up for a BBQ whilst you're there?

Bars and restaurants

There are a couple of good restaurants within walking distance, or the restaurants on the nearby Sao Rafael and Coelha beaches are a few minutes away by car. Further afield is the old town of Albufeira with many bars and restaurants to suit a range of tastes spread along narrow cobbled streets. Guia, birthplace of the traditional Algarvean dish chicken piri piri, is 10 minutes' drive away.


The beach of Sao Rafael is just over ¾ mile from the villa. There is also a choice of other beautiful beaches along the Sao Rafael coast such as Coelha, Castelo and Gale, or the expansive Praia Grande near Armacao de Pera. Albufeira's Praia Peneco is accessed by a lift from the promenade at the old town, which takes you down onto the sand. All have their own beach bar and restaurant and can be reached by car within 10 minutes. A number of the larger beaches offer a choice of different watersports.

Family fun

Zoomarine, an exotic marine life theme parkin Guia, is a short drive from the villa and is home to hundreds of fantastic and fascinating sea creatures, birds and tropical fish. Alternatively, Krazy World, in the next town of Algoz, has a small zoo with restaurants and a communal pool.

Places of interest

The Sand City, held in Porches takes place every year from May to October. The 50 international artists prepare sculptures based on a different theme for 8 weeks. The exhibitions are an impressive sight during the day and at night when the sculptures are illuminated with coloured lights. The exhibits are fantastic and are created by artists from all over the world - great fun for all the family!


Salgados Golf is the closest course to his villa and is just one of the many golf courses in the Algarve. Another option is the 9-hole Sheraton Pine Cliffs course to the other side of Albufeira, near Olhos D'Agua.

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.
