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.

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.

The villa "O Pomar de Faria" is amazing with beautiful Bougainvillea and natural salty water swimming pool. The villa is fully equipped with all the utensils. The villa is also near by many nice restaurants. The BBQ griller using woods can cook a family meal within minutes. The villa is only 8 minutes walking distance to the nearby beach "Praia Vale Centeanes" which is very convenience for the youngsters. The owners, Chris and Jenny are wonderful and very friendly people. They even prepared some food and drink for us when we arrived in the villa. Everyone from age 21 to 89 year old all had a fabulous time. We appreciated the Sangria and Portugal sausages Chris and Jenny treated us before our departure. I also enjoyed very much the home grown organic mulberries which Chris and Jenny gave us. They were so sweet and delicious! Wonderful and unforgettable vacation! Guiru & Philip Nash and family

The villa was everything we expected and more. Spacious, especially if you bag the top bedroom with two balconies, but every room has a terrace and some nice nooks and crannies to escape with a good book. The wendy house was a hit with my 2 year old and he spent most of the day in there, handy when the sun was so hot. The indian restaurant at the top of the road is first class, non greasy and loads of choice! Beautiful beaches within 15 minute walk with beach bars and lovely soft sand! What more could you ask for. Many Thanks for an excellent holiday! C & Family

We visited with our 9 month old baby and it was ideal. Sun on the terrace all day and balcony also. Very clean and homely we felt so relaxed and had everything we needed right at hand. We would definitely recommend the villa and will definitely be returning. Had a fantastic time felt really welcome and at home. Best holiday we've had.
