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.

                                                        A quiet multi-level villa in the National Park

                                                        5 of 5
                                                        The villa is on a peninsular in a dramatic setting, with views over a beautiful river valley. The whole area has been laid out with roads for development but only a few plots completed. As a result it is very open and quiet with a lovely fragrance from all the natural vegetation. The villa is modern and comfortable and dealing with Luis and his local agent a pleasure.

                                                        A fantastic place for a relaxing holiday

                                                        5 of 5
                                                        The location was perfect for us. Lots of lovely walks, spectacular scenery and quiet sandy beaches – the nearest one, Monte Clerigo, just a 5 minute drive away. We enjoyed an evening stroll on a different beach each day, followed by a cold beer in one of the little bars, listening to the waves and watching the sun go down. The villa itself is fabulous - spacious and modern, perfectly clean, very comfortable and well equipped. Mostly, we made use of the lovely kitchen to cook at home, but there are plenty of restaurants close by, if that’s your preference. The outdoor space is beautiful and there’s a covered terrace where we barbecued fresh fish bought in Aljezur’s market. The large pool is bathed in sun all day long and we had a swim each afternoon. In the late evenings we mostly flopped and enjoyed the comfort of the two large sofas (one each) in the lounge! Thank you to Heidi and Dic who showed us around and were amazingly helpful when we couldn’t work out where the outside light switch was! The villa really has everything you need for a great holiday. Highly recommended and we will definitely be going back.
