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.

Alte is a lovely unspoiled algarve village and the house Paul has made for a comfortable home from home stay. Bedrooms kept cool as they are on the ground floor, the kitchen has everything you could want to rustle up that salad or more, the roof terrace has BBQ facility if you want to cook with its stunning views of the village, orange groves and the distant coast line. I his is the second time staying in this house and I'm sure it will not be the last as I've said all home comforts even wifi ( if you really can't be without it ). Paul left us a little care package of a few beers and a bottle of local red wine ( many thanks ) they were great fully drunk on the roof terrace. We would highly recommend this house with its two well equipped bathrooms, 2 comfy cool bedrooms, fully equipped kitchen ( inc washing machine) comfy living room ( log fire, too warm to light it this stay ) and the roof terrace tops it all off in style. We can't wait to return, already making plans.
