It is near Almancil a nice enough modernised little town which sports Restaurante Gamboa, which is almost totally Portuguese at lunch time but English at night. Most odd but right up my street at mid-day.
If the Algarve attracts I suggest the Eastern Algarve. Tavira is nice.
Further West beyond Lagos there are villas to rent on Parque da Floresta. It is an Americanized Golf Resort...you could be in Florida!
There are quite a few of these resorts around now.
But if you want quiet, solitude off the beaten track, I highly recommend Herdade da Corte not far from Tavira (https://herdadedacorte.com/en/). You will need a car. It is snuggled in lovely Portuguese Countryside, run by Portuguese who, like so many in that lovely country have excellent English.
