AREA OF Boliqueime

COUNCIL- LOULÉ, LOCATION: RURAL COUNTRY SIDE

Living in the area of Boliqueime is living in the countryside just away from the busy coast.

It offers you the best of both worlds. On the one-hand it has a typical Algarve village which dates back to the 12th century, set in a quiet countryside location and perfect for that get-away-from-it-all feel. On the other hand its close proximity to the lively coastal resorts of Vilamoura, Olhos d’Agua and Albufeira make it ideal if you want plenty of things to see and do during the day and or night

The area has a great mixture of Portuguese and other nationalities.
