Villa Marcos is located in the beautiful sea-side village of Olhos D'Agua; just 150m from the golden sands of the beach. This well-designed and homely villa is situated just off from the road leading down to the heart of Olhos D'agua. Surrounding the property are many white-washed villas, but the property has an elevated position providing secluded gardens and lovely sea views.
Olhos D'Agua means the 'eyes of the water' named after the fresh water springs that bubble up beneath the water (can be seen amongst the rocks at low tide). This fishing village has become a popular holiday location but is not over crowded and still contains much charm and tradition. The main street runs down the hillside to the beach, and along the side streets you'll find many restaurants, often specialising in fresh seafood and fish. The sandy beach is still used by the local fisherman to launch their colourful boats each day but is also well-equipped to provide for the sun-worshippers, with a promenade that was completed in 2000, containing toilets and showers. There are plenty of rock pools and small coves to explore along the edges of the sandy beach. Whilst there is parking near the beach, the one-way system can become jammed in high season and walking may be far less effort.
Many of the surrounding beaches have water sports on offer throughout the summer, and there are plenty of golf courses, tennis courts and horse riding facilities found all around the Algarve. The nearest golf course is Pine Cliffs; a 9-hole course set in a pine wood at the edge of spectacular cliffs, about 3km away.
The centre of Albufeira is just 5km away; a sprawling town with plenty to see and something to suit everyone. During the day you can enjoy the sandy stretches of beach or browse the markets where local handicrafts and fresh goods are sold. In the evening, a wide variety of bars, restaurants and clubs fill the streets with people and life; locals sit on the terraces of traditional restaurants, the bars fill up with thirsty customers and all kinds of music drift across the air. You can admire the array of white yachts in the newly completed marina in the west. Alternatively, you could stroll around the Old Town and explore the maze of cobbled streets, past white-washed fishermen's houses.
Nearby attractions for those with children include;
. ZooMarine- an ocean theme park set amongst lakes and gardens with exhibitions, shows and rides to entertain the whole family. Has a large range of marine animals from sea lions and dolphins to turtles and exotic birds. About 8km away the other side of Albufeira, in Guia.
. Slide and Splash Waterpark - a huge water park with pools, Jacuzzis, slides and rapids that can keep the whole family amused for a day. There are plenty of grassy areas for relaxing and picnicking and because the grounds are so large, it doesn't get too crowded. There are Slide and Splash parks at Lagoa, 25km away, or at Quarteira, around 15km to the east.
