Loulé is the largest municipality of the Algarve. Here you will find the well-known holiday resorts of Vilamoura, Quarteira, Quinta do Lago and Vale do Lobo. Vilamoura is one of the biggest holiday resorts in Europe. It has several golf courses, 4 and 5 star hotels, a marina that attracts a large number of tourists, a casino, and many other facilities. Due to its size Loulé tries to keep an economic balance between the coast and the interior. Here tourism takes place not only near the sea, but also inland where you can enjoy the rural life-style and the rustic country homes.
