Make a holiday home in Alfanzina your home away from home

Carvoeiro is a small town that straddles western and central Algarve. It has recently blossomed into a popular tourist destination after years as a simple fishing village which received tuna-laden fishermen’s boats all day. There are few better places to enjoy the Algarvian sunshine than Carvoeiro’s cliff-fringed beach. Being a relative newcomer in Portugal’s tourist circuit, the holiday homes in Alfanzina and other areas of this town are still quite new. Those who book early will be able to enjoy spacious homes from whose balcony magnificent ocean views can be enjoyed. If they want to have a private swimming pool in which to cool off, tourists can book holiday rentals with such facilities. Backpackers or those travelling as a couple can find beautifully furnished apartments to suit their needs. Some of the extras visitors can expect include Internet access and barbecues.

Things to do

-Beaches: For uninhibited hours of basking and memorable cliff-top walks, Praia da Marinha is the place to go. Visitors will have to brave going down many steps but anyone who has been there will attest that it’s worth the effort. The sun deflecting off the mighty cliffs and the golden sands bordering the turquoise expanse of the Atlantic make for postcard-pretty scenery. A walking distance from holiday homes in Aflanzina is the Praia do Carvoeiro.

-Golf: There is an exquisite golf course waiting for golfing enthusiasts who choose to book holiday accommodation in Alfanzina. This is at the Vale de Milho Golf Club, a beautifully landscaped facility dotted with palm trees and quiet ponds. Even beginners can enjoy themselves on this well maintained course. And after working up an appetite on the course golfers can partake of the culinary delights offered by the clubhouse.

-Shopping: Tourists in Alfanzina holiday rentals will be easily able to get supplies for their homes when they visit the Algarve Shopping Mall which is near Albufeira. Fashion junkies will be spoilt for choice as to where to get apparel or that rare fragrance. And after a hard day’s shopping holidaymakers can cool their heels and appease their hunger pangs as they sample the offerings of the restaurants and cafes nearby.

-Food and drinks: There is no shortage of great places to eat and those who love their pizza and pasta will be able to have their fill of Italian cuisine at the Villa Medici. This brilliant eatery is a tourist favourite thanks to its range of meals and fine selection of wines. Pimenta Preta has an enticing range of Mediterranean specialities that visitors will enjoy. Whether its duck, pork or fish, patrons will savour every forkful.
