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.

Excellent communication from the owner, terrific double bed with the view of the sea, great shower and a super comfotrable new couch to relax on when staying in. All this making for a great holiday. We will definately return just as soon as we can. Loved it .... Paul T.

                                                                                                        This is our ninth extended winter break in this apartment, which speaks for itself. This one bedroom apartment is well-equipped and has been perfect for us as a retired couple. Many apartments are full of 'sad', ageing decor, furniture and equipment. Not so this one. In addition, when things have gone wrong, they have been put right quickly and efficiently. The views from the balcony are stupendous, as shown in the photograph. WYSIWYG; the photos shown are not taken when craning your neck, leaning out at a dangerous angle, and only occurring for 10 minutes at sunrise or sunset. The balcony is very large; there is plenty of room to spread out, which is again unusual. In the winter months, the sun rises just to its left and only disappears around 15h. at the earliest, later as the spring approaches. The local beach, with its active fishing community, is only a 5-10 minute walk down the steps, of which there are many; it may take longer to walk back! For those not wishing to use the steps, the lift down to the public car park six floors below brings you out near beach level. Once on the beach, at low spring tides and when the sand is plentiful, we have walked to Falésia beach and onwards to Vilamoura (a good few kilometres), and also the other way to Maria Luisa beach. Sand amounts do, however, vary considerably from day to day and year to year. In 2017 it would have been a scramble over rocks to make the same walks. We self-cater but even in the winter a few restaurants are open in the evening, more by day. If you have a car, as we do, then the parking two floors below is secure and easily reached by the lift just down the corridor towards the building's entrance. Olhos de Agua is an ideal centre from which to explore the Algarve; to Cape St. Vincent westwards or towards Spain across the Guadiana river to the east, and also inland to the Alentejo. The Algarve does not have the extremes of high-rise development which curse the Spanish costas; the countryside beautiful, and the nearby villages and towns interesting to explore, with lots of surviving old buildings, well-cared for by the Portuguese authorities. One of the best!

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.
