Things to do

-Beaches: Aljezur Town holiday homes are strategically located close to a number of picturesque beaches. Praia da Amoreira is one of the most sought after of these beaches as it stretches for miles and doesn’t get crowded as a result. As they promenade this beach visitors will come across an excellent restaurant where they can munch on fresh fish. The Arrifana Beach boasts majestic cliffs that rise out of the sea abruptly.

-Monuments: This is where holidaymakers can find the ruins of s 10th century Moorish castle. Not only will they marvel at this incredible piece of history, they will be treated to amazing views from the hill on which this castle sits. In the town of Carrapateira, still in the Aljezur locality, visitors will be able to explore the ruins of a 17th century fort which was a measure of military defence against pirates and other invaders.

-Countryside roaming: The verdant countryside surrounding Aljezur Town holiday rentals begs their occupants to take long, refreshing walks. Horses and bicycles are also available for hire for those who would prefer to use such means. Hikers will come to laid back villages and deserted beaches which they can also take the time to explore.

-Food and drink: Aljezur, like any other area in Algarve, is a great place to try out Portuguese cuisine and there are many restaurants waiting to tantalise visitors’ taste buds. Among the popular eateries is the Cafe Restaurante Primavera which offers hungry diners homemade pasta and nicely done swordfish among other delicacies. Sumptuous fish is also available at the Restaurant Ruth – O Ivo, with a decent wine selection to help it down.

Travel to Aljezur Town

As with other travellers headed to Algarve, visitors planning stays in Aljezur holiday rentals will need to book flights to the Faro Airport.

The house is absolutely perfect: large, clean and very well equipped. It has everything you need for a relaxed holiday. We didn't miss anything. We had an amazing time staying in the house. The place is really pretty, it's a good combination between modern and rustic which give it a lot of charms. The property was easy to find - thanks to the owner’s instructions. If you want peace and quiet go for it!

The house and pool are very clean and also really private. Helen herself is a fantastic host and even made us sandwiches for our late arrival. We wouldn't think twice about rebooking if we return to this amazing area. Thanks Helen, we definately plan to be back!
