Beetroot salad & all pastries. One of the best cup of coffees in the area. Really nice and peaceful setting.

one of our favorite restaurants, just a lovely atmosphere inside, with a courtyard for outdoor seating. great selection of salads, pastas, pizzas and wines, all at a fair price point. regardless of what main you choose, do yourself a favor and make sure to save some space for the chocolate mousse. i know it may sound like it's "just another chocolate mousse", but it's not, it's the richest most scrumptious chocolate mousse you will ever taste. let us know if you agree after your try it! we recommend sharing between 2.

I couldnt find the actual place i want to recommend on the airbnb listing options, which is called KOKO. Really nice cappuccino and breakfast options on the menu, nice spacious kids play area, lovely view to the golf course and just next door a fun crazy golf area.

Amazing facilities (including Gym, football field pool, tennis courts), they also rent bikes. Restaurant is nice, brand new decor, again lovely views as well as a great play area for kids.

popular portuguese chain supermarket, which believe it or not we miss when we leave as we some how manage to visit one of their branches at least once a day when we are in portugal. we love their own labeled products, particularly frozen pizzas (perfect for an easy dinner after a busy day out and about) and the Stracciatella flavor greek yogurt (try it, i promise you wont regret). if you are brazilian like me you will be happy to know you can also find tasty "pao de queijo" for sale in pingo doce, but they usually sell out pretty quickly!

Closest petrol station to the apartment. TOP TIP: please be extra careful when filling your car. Portuguese call diesel "gasóleo" while petral/gasoline is called "gasolina". Triple check before filling the tank and if you get it wrong (we did before!) dont start the car and speak to the petrol station staff for advice and assistance. This particular petrol station has a mechanic conveniently located next door which saved our holiday by emptying the tank for us before we could carry on enjoying ourselves. This service does come at a hefty cost, so again, be extra careful!

Neighborhoods
In our last vacations in 2019 we finally took some time to explore a bit of the old town of Loule. It is lovely and vibrant and definitely worth taking half a day to walk around and grab a bite.
