A village on the main EN 125,
with roads that lead south to Praia da Luz, and north to Barăo de Săo Joăo. Going into
the village, rather than by-passing it on the main road, you will find several restaurants
More active than Almádena, in the sense of the community, the 'Espichense' have their own church, their own sports club and hold village parties and dances.
Vale Grifo and Tiffany's Riding Centre are only two kilometres away, to the west!
For accommodation for 4 to 5 people try Horta da Avozinha, just north of Espiche,
or Bed and Breakfast is available at Belo Horizonte, the Guest House next door to Tiffany's.

A small, but rapidly expanding, village that now
boasts three restaurants (O Celeiro, O Poço and O Convivio) and several bars. There is also a small market for farmers'
produce and two small 'Mini-mercado's.
A Community Centre is under construction (2006)
There's not much more of note about it, but Vale Grifo and Tiffany's Riding Centre are only a kilometre away to the east!
