    A welcoming home away from home: a holiday rental in Alte.

    The village of Alte is a beautiful example of the Algarve as it was once was. This village, which dates back to Roman times, is characterised by whitewashed houses, which – as is typical of this region – are found amidst the trees and mountains. Alte has a rural, laid-back feel but is close enough to bustling Albufeira and Vilamoura for those seeking a little more action. HomeAway has numerous apartments and villas in Alte. Everything from spacious and comfortable apartments with internet and wheelchair accessibility to luxurious villas with spectacular views and swimming pools can be found when searching for accommodations in Alte with HomeAway.

    Alte holiday apartments and villas aren't HomeAway’s only options in the region however: accommodations in nearby Albufeira are a terrific option for those seeking a livelier location. Rentals in Vilamoura place visitors in a chic and trendy area, while even further to the west is the lovely coastal town of Lagos.

    Things to do

    Alte Old Town:

    Alte has an interesting old town. The church dates back to the 13th century and is home to various rare and unique pieces of art dating from the 16th century. Also found in the old town is a functioning 13th century water mill as well as numerous shops selling locally produced crafts and products.

    Big and Small Springs:

    A trip to the springs is like a trip back in time. The Fonte Grande and Fonte Pequena are found within Alte’s borders. What once served as a gathering spot for locals to fill their pitchers and wash the laundry is now a relaxing place to picnic or simply unwind.

    The town of Silves is located about 25 minutes from Alte. This town, situated on the Arade river, is characterised by its large Moorish castle, the best preserved and oldest in the Algarve. Also worth visiting is Silves Cathedral and the castle walls, both of which offer gorgeous views.


    The village of Loule is best known for its gypsy market, held every Saturday. There visitors can find locally made crafts and delicacies. There is also a very fine daily market located in the Moorish-style market hall where fresh produce, meats, fish and handcrafted spirits are on sale.
