Private Villa with Pool in the Algarve

The Portimao Sardine Festival on the riverside area will have grilled sardines on the menu from August 7 to 16, while the Olhao Seafood Festival (better known as festival do mariscos) from August 10 to 5 will be presenting visitors with all types of seafood dishes, from boiled prawns and seafood rice to feijoada de buzios (bean stew with sea snails) and crabs. Both events have a varied programme of entertainment planned, including live concerts and street theatre. From September 2 to 6, chefs will be showing off their cooking skills at Vilamoura Marina during the Cataplana Experience festival.


Cataplana is a typical Portuguese dish of either seafood, fish, meat or vegetables, cooked using special cookware, traditionally made of copper. Cookery courses for visitors who would like to learn to use a cataplana will be held during the festival.
