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.

Would have liked to have used communal area but no seating and BBQ area not very clean. There is a good selection of restaurants nearby, loved O Paulos, which is only a five minute walk from the apartment. Enjoyed visiting all of the local beaches especially Amoreira beach.

The house has everything you need to feel right at home and easily fits 6 adults (plus some kids), with space enough for a little privacy when needed- it never felt crowded. Everything was comfortable, tidy, enough linens & towels for everyone, plus a working washing machine & dishwasher. The pool was clean, very well kept and big enough to actually swim a bit! Any requests / problems we had were dealt with immediately. There's a minimarket, some cafés and restaurants in walking distance and the house is just 5 min away (by car) from the beaches of arrifana and monte clerigo. We will (have already, actually) recommend this place to our friends and will definitely try to make the time & come back next year!

If you are after gorgeous sunsets, or fancy a bit of surfing, Praia do Amado is just 10mins drive away. There are plenty of restaurants with the freshest fish in the area. There is a small supermarket in Carrapateira (10mins) and Vila do Bispo is only a little further a field (~15mins) where you will find medium-sized supermarkets. Fabulous and thoroughly recommended.
