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.

Rooms were well spaced apart although two bedrooms in basement do not have air conditioning but did have fans. Plenty of utensils pots and pans for cooking. Terrace for eating was fabulous especially with the gazebo to shelter from the 40 degree heat we had when there. Pool was well used by the kids and was cleaned regularly. When we cooked the power used to go off but this is quickly and easily rectified by switching the trip switch in the hallway back on I guess with so many rooms being used, air conditioner running and ovens all going at the same time it's no surprise. We never met hosts however we did contact them to arrange taxis as the numbers provided didn't understand english, however Andrew sorted this for us quickly and the taxi firm were fantastic and we used them regularly. Andrew also suggested before our stay Edite Felix from green rounds for airport transfers which we used and what a fabulous lady. Not only did she do all our transfers she took us shopping using her van so we had plenty of room for groceries. she booked and drive us to a private wine tour then showed us the coast of Algarve from carveiro to Monte gordo stopping in villamoura for lunch. Edite also arranged and drive us all to zoomarine which was a great day as well as as all that she arranged golf for some of our group having arranged everything including clubs for them collecting them early morning and bringing them back late afternoon. Fabulous service! You do not need the extra expense of hiring a car as monte gordo is so close, taxis are cheap (we only used them because of two disabled guests) the local bakery also has the essentials and great place to stop for a beer , wine or even a coffee also serves food until late in the evening. Local beach is stunnng never seen one so beautiful. Our favorite restaurant in Monte gordo was the Blue Parrot and Bar was Nox bar which had a fabulous singer, johns bar was good for cocktails but Nox just had the edge, try their white sangria it's amazing! All in all fabulous villa in one of the best locations on the Algarve, I can not wait to return.

A fantastic terrace with BBQ-perfect for relaxation or entertaining. Balconies have shade or sunshine -this apartment has it all. Also very secure apartment/complex with pool. Travelled as family of 5 with three children under 10 and it worked really well for us.
