On the one-hand it is 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.
In the hills around the town one finds here and there small cafes or snack bars. In many places there is still the delivery of bread and fruit from door to door. But for the newspaper and more shopping one needs to go into town where various supermarkets and shops are.
The council of Loule has most probably the biggest variation of residential areas in the Algarve. From very traditional country areas to luxurious Golf resorts close to the coast. Loule is not focused on tourism, it is a town full of ordinary Portuguese going about their day lives.
