Wake up to the sound of bird song and enjoy breakfast under the shade of the carob bean trees on one of the sunny terraces, with the blue Atlantic ocean sparkling in the distance. Picnic or barbeque by the pool at lunch time - and watch the vivid sunsets whilst enjoying some excellent Portuguese wine. Do as much or as little as you want in complete tranquility and comfort.

Weather poor, but villa more than made up for it. Poppy House had everything that we asked for – and more. The pool was wonderful and we all had a great holiday. Many thanks!

Places of interest

The neighbouring town of Albufeira is the nearest “hotspot”, where there is plenty of nightlife in the many clubs and bars. Another gem, with lots going on, is the nearby picturesque village of Carvoeiro. There are many pretty and traditional villages nearby.
During the summer days, along the coast there are various watersports on offer locally and a trip to the caves in a local fishing boat is a “must”. There are also many pretty harbours and marinas within an easy drive of the villa and for fun time there are two large water parks within a 7 and 20 minute drive of the villa. There is also a zoo and marine park within a 10 minute drive.

Nearby is world's largest sand sculptures exhibition from May to October. There is also a Nature Reserve within 6 minutes drive of the villa, with many species of birds all the year round. The adjoining footbridges and dunes provide interesting and easy walking, with “hides” to pause and observe the wildlife. Walkers can also enjoy the unspoilt countryside in the foothills of Monchique, a picturesque 30 minute drive away.

The Algarve is a dream for golfers and there are numerous excellent and varied golf courses within 8-30 minutes drive of the villa. A good website to check out is: algarve-golf.net.

Just 10 minutes away from the villa is a very pretty and interesting shopping arcade with a 9 cinema complex and over 100 shops to satisfy all tastes.

If you prefer culture to shopping, there is much more to interest people, including the history of the area, which is fascinating. For instance, a 20 minute drive will take you to Silves, the Moorish capital of The Algarve, with its castle and archaeological remains.
Travel due west to Sagres and Cape St Vincent and you will be on the most south westerly tip of Europe, where the history and legends date back to Neolithic times.

So you need not just soak up the sun, but can explore and learn too. Everyone can find something to enjoy in this very special part of Southern Europe.
