There are four bars and three restaurants in the village itself. They are simple village bars but they make an enjoyable visit. 

Restaurant A Curva, Mexilhoeira Grande, tel: 00351 282 968 031 is 5 minutes from Brisa.

There is also a coffee shop and a good supermarket. The village is about a 15 minute walk away. There is also a butchers and a bakers and two other shops as well as a post office and newsagents.

In Fugureria, which is the next village at the bottom of the hill, there are a further three bars, two of which serve food and have a coffee shop. It is about a 20 min walk to get there and 25 minutes back because it is back up the hill on the way home!


In Mexlihoeria, he local village, there is quite a famous restaurant for Portugal called Villa Lisa. It is owned by an artist and is a very unusual place in that you don't order food, you have a fixed menu including all the wine you can drink for a fixed price. You sit on benches and it is very popular and has a great atmosphere, but it is very Portugese and would not be to everyones taste depending on how adventurous you are with your food!


Taxis to Alvor are easy and about 15 Euro and there is a huge choice of places to eat and drink, and to get to Lagos is about 20 Euro, with again lots of choices of bars, restaraunts and night clubs etc. There is also a train station at the bottom of the village and a very regular bus service to both Portimao and Lagos which runs about every 30 minutes.


There are also two very good restaurants just 10 minutes drive away towards the mountains which serve very good food and are also great value.

    Excellent villa for large groups or families. Would definitely recommend

  • T Stephens

    Villa was clean and well presented in the photographs. The location was perfect for our family with the peaceful surroundings but the liveliness of Alvor just a short drive away.  Would certainly recommend the villa for large families.
