An ideal getaway for those who love the countryside and a river scene but also want to experience Portuguese village life. It is situated on a quiet street but is close to the centre and the amenities. Alcoutim has several cafes, bars and restaurants, as well as banks, library, Post Office, mini-market, chemist and Tourist Information. The place is perfect for walking & mountain biking with many local paths and is a set off point for the glorious 'Via Algarviana' path to Sagres. The village has its own fresh water beach for bathing The river is great for birdwatching and boating with both local bike and canoe hire available, ferry trips and a Zip wire across the river for the more adventurous. A hire car is recommended as public transport is limited and it allows for days out to the coast. The beautiful town of Tavira and the uncrowded beaches and golf courses of the Eastern Algarve are 45 minutes or less away or head north to the historic Moorish town of Mertola and the Alentejo region.
