Algarve Villas

HomeAway makes it easy for you to browse through the best Algarve villas all in one place. This is one of Europe's top regions for beach tourism, which is down to the gorgeous golden sandy coastline and great choice of things to do for people of all ages. Holiday rentals in the Algarve are geared towards families, with plenty of dining space and spacious living areas. Whether you prefer to be on the beachfront, close to a golf course or in the heart of a town, you'll find the rental in the Algarve that matches your specifications. You can also pick guest facilities to make your Algarve apartment a little more comfortable; the climate here makes pools and gardens especially appealing.

Things to do in the Algarve

  • Beaches in the Algarve - The Algarve is recognised for its fantastic coastline, typified by golden sandy beaches. There are a total of 74 Blue Flag beaches in the region; among them are Praia da Luz in the west, Ilha de Faro in the centre and Praia da Armona in the east, which is a beautiful secluded beach, accessible only by foot or boat.
  • Watersports in the Algarve - The Algarve is ideal for activities such as sea kayaking, kiteboarding, windsurfing and wakeboarding, with facilities available close to most resorts. As you head west the conditions are increasingly accommodating for surfers, with larger swells on beaches exposed to the Atlantic. Diving is also offered, with wrecks and an abundance of marine life to discover off the coast.
  • Golf in the Algarve - The Algarve is perhaps the best destination in Europe for golf. Many of the top-rated courses on the continent are located here; two of the best can be found at the prestigious Oceanico resort in Vilamoura. There are a total of 36, packed into a relatively small region ensuring that you'll never be far from a round.
  • Water parks in the Algarve - Accompanying the world-class beaches is a good range of modern visitor attractions, such as the three premier water parks, Aqua Show, Aqualand and Slide and Splash. The latter is vast, and counted among the top attractions of its kind in Europe.
  • History - The old city of Lagos is well worth seeing; it is encircled by preserved medieval defences, and boasts a tangle of narrow streets, home to a number of interesting buildings, like the Baroque São Sebastião church. In the city of Silves there is a spectacular medieval castle, considered one of the best examples of Moorish architecture in Portugal.
  • Weather in the Algarve

    :

    The climate in the Algarve is famous for its long, warm summers when rainfall is rare and temperatures reach the low-30s or more. July and August are the hottest months, but if you're heading to the Algarve to enjoy some beach weather they you can arrive as early as May, with the warmth lasting all the way through to October. Spring and autumn weather is moderate, with occasional warm spells. Winters here are usually very mild – daily highs reach the mid-teens, although there's a little more rainfall at this time of year. If you're looking for similar weather to the Algarve but want to travel a little further North then check out some of our villas in Portugal.

    Travelling to the Algarve

    :

    You will be able to reach any one of our holiday rentals in the Algarve from abroad via Faro Airport (FAO), which is one of the busiest in the country. There are connections to this destination across Europe. The holiday region is served by an extensive road system, and hire cars are the preferred mode of transport for many visitors. Still, public transport is cheap and efficient, with the Rodoviara buses a great way to get around towns. There are also affordable private buses linking Faro with destinations like Lagos and Albuefeira.

    Additional service fee may apply.

The apartment was ideally situated in the old town just minutes away from bars and restaurants. The boardwalk wasn't far and a must to have a stroll along, we did a couple of other walks straight from the apartment. There were stretches of beautiful sandy beaches. Everything you needed was in the apartment it was comfortable and quiet and has a lovely roof terrace with loungers. An allocated parking space is available if you hire a car. Sjef and Els were very helpful and Suzanne friendly and accommodating. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this apartment and would definitely stay there again.

Set in a highly exclusive and very beautiful road right opposite a top class golf course. We loved the championship quality pool table. Best I have ever played on. We swam in the lovely pool every morning and evening, and found it easy to roll the cover back over the pool every evening so the heating could work to maximum effect. Comfortable swimming temperature in February. The fish and vegetable market in the old part of Quarteira was a real find for us. The owner George handled our booking of the villa perfectly. We arrived to find the villa immaculately clean with a bottle of wine left out on the table. The pool and garden maintenance people came twice in out week and kept everything up to the highest standards without ever interfering with our privacy and sense of ownership of the house and grounds. We emailed George a few days before arrival and asked if he knew of how to hire bikes. He found the right company for us. They delivered top class bike to the villa at a very good price. My son and I had brand new suspension mountain bikes and enjoyed great riding along the coast and up on to some challenging off road tracks in the hills north of the villa. We were spoilt for choice with great golf courses, from the world class ones that adjoin the villa to smaller 9 hole courses like Balaia where they welcomed our 9 year old and supplied clubs and shoes for us all. By turning right out of out front drive we were able to walk to the local bakery in 5 minutes and also reach Brown's Sports Club in the same time to play tennis or squash or enjoy good coffee in the morning or drinks and home made hamburgers in the evening. If you can't find the bakery,,,,ask for directions in Browns. Its tucked just down the lane by the orange groves and does great morning pastries. The marina is surrounded by great bars and restaurants. The cinema surround sound in the villa is great so take some DVDs. Thank you for an exceptional holiday!

The pictures do not do it justice, especially the view from the roof terrace, where we made use of the bbq. The tv channels were an added bonus, with sky sports, sky tv, and numerous movies. The bed was the comfiest rental I have ever stayed in. P.S. All the other reviews I read had me concerned about a huge hill up to the property. I really don't know how old/lazy these people are but it was fine and we were pushing a little one in a push chair. Great stay in Carvoeiro!!!!
