For the fifth consecutive year the FIM Superbike World Championship's Portuguese round will be held at the Algarve's very own International race circuit, about 25 minutes from the villa - 21-23 September 2012.
It's a fantastic circuit, approved by both FIM and the FIA and hosts many events throughout the year. The circuit is officially on the F1 testing list and both Mclaren and Torro Rosso have tested here, so everyone is praying that one day it will host a return to Portugal for the F1 calendar. The circuit also runs driver experience days, plus the Internationally acclaimed karting circuit on the same site provides great fun if you fancy yourself as the next Lewis Hamilton.
"Carvoeiro is a great place on the Algarve to stay, with many places of interest within easy reach. Had trips out to Vilamoura, Ferragudo, Portimao, Silves and Luz"
"We had many nice meals down in Carvoeiro, and particularly like 'Ela and Elas', 'Casa do Bife' and 'O Tascos'"
"Some of our favourite places to eat were L'Orange, Bon Bon (Sesmarias), Primavera (Carvoeiro) and Jophil's (Sesmarias)"
