Make a holiday home in Aljezur Town your home away from home

Dreaming of a peaceful getaway in a quiet rural setting where one is surrounded by gentle green hills and where life slows down to a crawl? Look no further than Aljezur in western Algarve in the southern reaches of Portugal. Not only will visitors find a fertile valley carpeted in sweet potato plantations, they’ll have a selection of ruins, some dating back to the 10th century, at their mercy. On top of that, there are luxurious, tastefully furnished holiday homes in Aljezur Town that are not far from the sea. The places of holiday accommodation provided by HomeAway in this locale can cater for travelling groups of different sizes and mostly command impressive views over the countryside and out to the ocean. These holiday rentals in Aljezur Town come with such conveniences as satellite/cable TV and barbecues as well.

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.

Weather in Aljezur Town

The weather in this resort is predominantly warm throughout the year. Winter is mild with temperatures averaging in the teens between November and March. After this the weather becomes steadily warmer as spring approaches and then subsequently gives way to temperate summers. Highs during the hottest months average at 26°C. Autumn takes over thereafter with average temperatures falling to between 23 and 19°C. Winter is ushered in with rainfall in November, the wettest month in Aljezur.

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. On arrival, holidaymakers can either take hire private transfer services or hire their own vehicle which can be quite costly, or use public means. The latter can pprove quite cumbersome as three connections have to be made. First, take the hourly shuttle to Faro town from the airport and then take a bus/train from there to Lagos. From Lagos visitors will need to take a €3,40 bus ride 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.
