Tucked away from the busier large resort towns but yet still only a short drive away from the action, Loule is a charming town on Portugal’s colourful southern coast that is just waiting to be explored. If you’re after a villa holiday with a mix of beach, action and culture - a Loule villa is the perfect choice.
A treasure trove of Portuguese history and culture, this old Arabian market town is filled with a maze of narrow cobblestoned streets and decorated with vibrant architecture. Throw in impressive churches, ancient convents and a well-preserved 13th-century caste to make this destination a real antique gem. Hunt for bargains at the weekly gypsy market and learn about the town’s fascinating past at one of its museums.
For a true taste of Portugal, try authentic pastries and cakes at quaint cafés or mouth-watering regional dishes at family-run tavernas. Just a five-minute drive down the road, you’ll find the blue-flag beaches of Quarteira and Vilamoura, with water sports for the adrenaline junkies and soft golden sand for those wanting to unwind and top up their tan.
