    Going rustic in Colégio

    Colégio holiday rentals are rustic and wild, set up in an Algarvian pastoral paradise. Heading to these whitewashed cottages in the dusty hills full of cypress trees, palm scrub and olive orchards means leaving behind all the buzzing bars and body-packed marinas of the Portuguese south coast. It means keeping company with groaning donkeys and hitting little whitewashed towns like Bensafrim and Barão de São João for your weekly shop. Of course, the delights of the shores in Lagos and the acclaimed Southwest Alentejo and Vicentine Coast Natural Park are never too far away when you do want a taste of the waves.

    Going into the country in Colégio

    Forget everything you thought you knew about the Algarve. Colégio holiday rentals offer something totally different. Expecting long, lazy days on the beachfront before evening cocktails to a sunset? How about al fresco dining sessions and long hikes through verdant landscapes of undulating hills instead? Up here, a menu of sunbathing and hedonism is replaced by ecotourism and local delights. Farmers' markets and visits to olive farms, agritourism lunches and languorous coffee breaks in country piazzas are the name of the game.

    Family fun is just a hop from Colégio

    For all its rusticity, Colégio remains well-connected to many of the region's major attractions. The Lagos Zoo is just a short drive over the ridges. It's perfect for taking a break from lounging poolside at the villa, offering a medley of swinging monkeys, hopping roos and pink-hued flamingos that's sure to keep the kids entertained. Talking of kids, they'll love the Wake Salinas aquapark, too. It's not traditional, with rides and lazy rivers, but has jumps and bumps for those eager to try out a spot of wakeboarding.

    Choosing time in Colégio wisely

    Going into the inland hills of the Algarve changes little in the way of the weather, although it might be just a tad cooler up around the ridges of Colégio than down on the coast, and you should also expect a couple more downpours. That said, the summers still run from June to August and bring mercury levels that can soar over 30. That scorching season remains the most popular time of year to seek out Colégio holiday rentals, but spring – in May – and autumn – in September and October – are also great choices.

    Colégio – perched on the Algarve

    Colégio is around 20 minutes by car north out of Lagos. That might not seem like much, but just watch as the landscapes turn from wide beaches of soft yellow sand, cliffs and dolphin-ringed bays to rugged valleys filled with scrub and olive trees. As you go up into the undulating hills that spread out to dominate this heartland of the western Algarve, you might trade in wave-bashed coast for sun-scorched farmlands, but the Southwest Alentejo and Vicentine Coast Natural Park is still within reach, touting all its brochure-worthy shores and surfing spots.
