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.

Weather in the Aljezur region

The weather in the Aljezur region is typical for the Algarve region: summers are hot, sunny, and dry. High temperatures average around 28°C in July and August, and there is virtually no rain in those months. Temperatures in September and October average a pleasant 22-24°C with a few days of rain per month. Winter temps stay in the 10-13°C range. December and February are the wettest, clocking in with an average of seven days of precipitation per month.

Travel to the Aljezur region

The closest and most convenient airport for holidays in Aljezur is in Faro (FAO), located about 70 miles from the Aljezur municipality. From the airport, the quickest option for getting to Aljezur is to hire a car or take a taxi. There are plenty of agencies at the airport, and the drive is scenic. Alternatively travellers can take a bus or train from Faro to Lagos and continue via bus to Aljezur.

Beautiful, cute, little home with Italianate style garden

5 of 5
Helen is a fabulous, helpful host and a fount of knowledge about the area. The house is small and cute with a beautiful roof terrace and BBQ area and stunning looking pool- freezing cold in winter but the sea is still warm. Aljezur has a lovely (free) castle with great views, public swimming pool and intermarche supermarket. It is about 10-15mins away. There is a closer little supermarket for everyday essentials and restaurants near by. There are a wide range of beautiful beaches to choose from - our favourite was Praia da Amoireira with its lovely clifftop walk. There are lots of walking trails but you need to bring a good map or ask the locals. We enjoyed walking from the campsite near Aljezur down to the beach and other countryside walks. Silves castle is lovely as is the old town plus a stunning drive via Marmelete -check out the Mirador en route. Slightly vertiginous in places. Lagos' beach, Praia da Ana and the nearby headland have lovely stacks and arches to view as well as fossilised shells. We saw storks, egrets, mongoose, wild junipers, crowberries, strawberry trees and more during our stay. Hope you enjoy it as much as us.
