Boliqueime makes the modern world seem far away, but all the holiday facilities you could ever want are still just down the road. Leaving you free to unwind and relax in the heart of rustic Portugal, and still pop out for a round of golf or a tantalizing plate of seafood. Boliqueime reaches out from a central, cobbled square, its lanes sheltering tiny shops and lined with whitewashed houses. Here, you'll discover authentic bars where you can pull up a stool and order a glass of local wine, as well as those hearty, Portuguese restaurants that you'll only find where the locals live and work. Boliqueime makes it easy to enjoy those welcoming restaurants to the full, or shop for fresh vegetables and local produce at the local village markets. The Saturday morning market in Loulé is probably the best in the Algarve, with plenty of regional food and every type of local handicraft – lace, metalwork, pottery and more.
Boliqueime is situated within 10 minutes drive from Vilamoura, with its glamorous marina and boutique style shopping. Head southwest and you'll reach Albufeira, renowned for nightlife and restaurants aimed at every budget. And just a short drive to the south lies Praia de Falesia – with 5 kilometres of glorious sand.
