The first thing you admire about this wonderful holiday villa in Guia, Algarve has to be the unique swimming pool area, which boasts not one but two private pools. The first is a shallow pool for children, which has steps in one corner for easy access, whilst the second adult's pool is a delightful 8 metres in length and both are surrounded by well-furnished sun terraces. An added bonus for families is that the pool area is separated from the garden by a balustrade wall ensuring safety for very young children.

A journey into Guia is well worth a visit. It is a small and unassuming village with all amenities so you can avoid the journey to Albufeira, and the crowds. It's famous for its piri piri chicken, suckling pig tavernas and many other restaurants from the "cheap and cheerful" to sophisticated dining, where you will find a French gourmet restaurant located in a beautiful old traditional village house. Guia is also popular with locals and tourists alike and is therefore a hive of activity particularly in the summer months. For those of you who enjoy shopping, there is a monthly gipsy market and various local fairs in the evening throughout the year. There is a small central car park, giving access to banks, a chemist, newsagents, supermarkets and a post office. You will also find cake shops, coffee shops and the "football" club which is truly international and local, where you can enjoy an English breakfast or a glass of wine with octopus salad, and watch the world go by. There are also 3 churches, a dentist, a physiotherapist and not forgetting a liquor store, with a huge selection of wines and the largest collection of lighters displayed on the walls, along with antique port bottles on the top shelf.
Just outside Guia you will find the largest shopping centre - Algarve Shopping - and the Retail Park, complete with Nike factory outlets. Just outside the shopping centre, you will also find Cliff Richard's home, a converted manor house and his winery, famous for his own brand "Vida Nova".
For the more active travellers, there are some great opportunities for cycling and walking in the Algarve countryside; you can discover some truly unique and wonderful places and views that are well worth the journey.
