It is a tiny village, blessed with a handful of fine restaurants, a small supermarket and a fantastically atmospheric café meaning visitors to Alcalar holiday rental properties can relax in the knowledge that everything they will need for a well earned break is right on your doorstep. Alcalar is still magnificently rural, with the fantastic views out over the Algarve’s Monchique hills still gloriously uninterrupted by development.

Things to do on holiday in Alcalar, Portugal

What put Alcalar on the international map is not the village itself, but the huge town which stood alongside the villages current position over 5,000 years ago.

Fantastic Villa

5 of 5
We booked this villa to stay with our friends for 11 nights. During this stay me and my fiancé got married at a nearby resort. We wanted something special and we got that and more with the villla. It’s exceptional. The villa has 4 lovely bedrooms including a suite with a walk in wardrobe and separate bathroom. The kitchen has all you need with all the mod cons, coffee machine, large fridge and freezer. The outside of the property is where you spend most of your time either on a sun lounger or sat on the outdoor furniture whilst enjoying the sun. There is two pools, one children’s and one a bit deeper. We opted to have the main pool heated and it made a difference. The gardens are well looked after and he pool guy comes most days to clean the pool. Check in and check out very easy. The villa is situated about 12km from the centre of Alvor but it’s a simple journey and easily accessible if you have a car and takes about 10mins. Nothing more to say other than thank you for providing such an amazing Villa.

Lovely apartment in a relaxing setting

5 of 5
We enjoyed a wonderful week at this beautiful apartment. The pool area and view were so amazing that we didn’t feel the need to go anywhere else. Sandra is a fantastic host who made our stay really special. I can’t recommend it highly enough if you need a place to relax and unwind.
