Escape from everyday life with a holiday rental in Aljezur.

The municipality of Aljezur is an unspoilt natural wonder located within the Faro district. It was founded back in the 10th century by North Africans who ruled until the Christian conquest five centuries later. The Arab influence can still be felt, as many of the structures in the region and the mix of the two conflicting cultures gives Aljezur its own particular flair. Also characteristic of Aljezur is the lush, green valley and the long stretch of untouched beaches on the Western Atlantic. HomeAway has holiday houses and villas in Aljezur that put visitors in the heart of this relaxed region. Budget-friendly, sea-side Aljezur villas outfitted with wi-fi and cable television or luxury holiday villas in Aljezur that are both pet and child friendly are just a few of the offerings.

Aljezur is a great starting point for exploration of the Algarve. It lies about 19 miles north of Lagos, an historic yet modern town where HomeAway also has holiday rentals. In fact, HomeAway also has a nice collection of holiday accommodations in quite a few cities in the Faro district that fit all kinds of budgets and travel styles.

Things to do

Working windmills:

There are two picturesque and still functioning windmills in Aljezur. One, in Odeceixe, continues using the traditional grinding method and has fantastic views of the countryside. The second windmill is found in Arregata. Here visitors can see the individual implements used historically for grinding cereals.

Western Atlantic coast:

The coast of the western Atlantic found in Aljezur is something unique in the Algarve region; it is still relatively untouched by tourism. No hotels or resorts here – just miles of pure sand and sea. Without a doubt, this is one of the biggest reasons to visit this region.

The Church at Bordeira:

This religious structure is one of the few in the Algarve to have more or less survived the earthquake of 1755. The simplicity of its outside is greatly contrasted by the intricate baroque-style woodwork inside.

Museum Antoniano:

What is today the Museum Antoniano was originally the 17th-century chapel of Santo Antonio of Aljezur. Strangely, the building was primarily residential in the 19th century before it was ultimately converted into the museum it is today. Books, engravings, coins, medals and more are on display.

Castelo de Aljezur:

There is not a whole lot that remains of the once imposing 10th-century Moorish Castle of Aljezur. Centuries of wear and tear – not to mention a huge earthquake in 1755 – have taken their toll. However, what remains is well worth a visit. The view from atop alone makes the trip worthwhile.

Lagos:

The town of Lagos is located about 19 miles from Aljezur. This pretty town's historic centre is surrounded by medieval walls and cobblestone streets lined with plenty of restaurants and cafés. A fort at the harbour entrance is fun to visit, and the Meia Praia beach is popular.

La villa est propre et entourée d’un magnifique jardin (de fleurs et cactus divers) d’une piscine extérieure avec jacuzzi très agréable et un coin douche (eau chaude) très appréciable. Et pour terminer, d’un coin barbecue extérieur, extra pour faire cuire vos diverses grillades. Vous trouverez autour des petits restaurant indiqué sur la brochure, n’hésitez pas ils sont très bons et un super plus pour le restaurant Caramba à Barao de sao, très bon accueil et nourriture excellente avec un très bon rapport qualité/prix. A tout juste 8 km, vous trouverez Lagos avec un centre ville très animé (boutiques, restaurants etc…) surtout le soir. Evidemment, sa magnifique plage de sable fin et de l’autre côté ses criques et falaises. Pour nous le coin de l’Algarve typique que nous avons préféré. Excellente communication du propriétaire, Harry est très cordial. Un séjour agréable dans un bel environnement.

The property was well appointed and immaculate. The pool was perfect for our very hot August week, and ideal for families. Restaurants are a short drive away in Aljezur and the beaches at Amoreira and Arrifana are fantastic, and again within 15-20 mins drive, with goof surf. Even better was Odeceixe further up the coast. Karl the owner was very quick to get back to us with queries before our trip. Thank you for a great stay! Laura & Family

They have a lovely villa in a nice area close to beaches, shops and restaurants. The villa was spotless with perfectly manicured garden's (that get's the sun all day), a large built barbecue and a lovely swimming pool. I would definitely recommend this villa for a relaxing holiday with all you need close by. Thank you both for a lovely holiday. Regards Mark and Sue.
