Make a holiday rental home or villa in Almadena, Portugal your home away from home

Almadena sits on the outskirts of Lagos, and represents a popular choice of base for visitors to the region. Part of this can be attributed to its position – on the fringes of a Natural Park and within a short distance of the beaches. The attractions of Lagos are also within easy reach, so if you are seeking a traditional village for a relaxing family holiday, this may be it.

Things to do in Almadena, Portugal

The village of Almadena is a ‘small and friendly’ alternative to staying in the cities of the Algarve region. The main highlight of the village is that it is set in the Alentejano e Costa Vicentina Natural Park, giving Almadena a rural feel to it, despite its close proximity to other towns and cities. The park is the biggest protected area in Portugal, and an impressive combination of beaches and hinterland.

Almadena has basic amenities, and those seeking a large supermarket will have to head outside of the village. You could, however, spend your evenings out of the house, as Almadena has a number of excellent restaurants that charge only a fraction of some of the more tourist-orientated eateries elsewhere in the region. Another option is to pick up some fresh produce at the local farmers’ market and try your hand at creating a pork or chicken dish in the local style.

The centre of Lagos is less than 10km from Almadena, and the old town is a great place to enjoy a drink or meal outdoors in one of the many restaurants that line its cobbled streets. This is also where you will find more in the way of shops, supermarkets and bars, as well as various sites of historical and cultural interest.

Places to visit on holiday in Almadena, Portugal

The western end of the Algarve is generally regarded as the less touristy side, and attractions in the area tend relate more to relaxation than exertion. The beaches are a particular highlight, with the EU Blue Flag beach at Luz one of the best in the area. Another day trip worth considering whilst holidaying in Almadena is Burgau – a small town that has historic attractions, such as a Capuchin monastery and the 17th century Chapel of St Leonard.

Weather in Almadena, Portugal

Almadena and the surrounding region receives a Mediterranean – Subtropical climate, meaning summer months are a great time to visit, as the weather is hot, sunny and almost always dry. That is not to say that a holiday in Almadena cannot be enjoyed outside of this period, as even in winter the average temperature is around 12C.

                            chilled and relaxed

                            5 of 5
                            Wow what a great place to stay, very specious and well looked after, very clean, the pool was amazing, we spent most of the time in the pool, my son loved the villa from the moment we walked in, you feel well at home here, I wrote to len before and after our holiday he was very quick to get back to us, and answer any questions that we had, the shops and beach is all within walking distance, but there are hill that you have to walk to get to and from the villa, we managed but did find it hard with a pushchair, But don't let this put you off from staying here, There are some great places to eat down on the beach and towards the beach .This villa is great and central the pictures don't show how big the place is.So once agin thank you for a relaxing break with my mum, dad and 5 yr old autistic son. The Amors We would defiantly want to return in the future. Thank you len for aloing us to stay in your vlla,

                            Excellent break at Villa Serena

                            A lovely stay at a well maintained and clean property, everything was as described in the listing, instructions were accurate and comprehensive and enabled us to find our bearings quickly and easily . Views were stunning from the Villa, the village of Almadena was quaint and boasted bars, shops and restaurants - within a short drive are the beeches, supermarkets and golf. Owner provided excellent customer service with deposits and keys etc., we would highly recommend this property to anyone visiting this area of Portugal. Steve & Irene Dickman

                            L'endroit parfait pour les vacances!!!

                            J'ai la chance de connaitre les propriétaires de cette très chouette maison de vacances. Leurs coeurs balancent entre la France et le Portugal, et Ian gère la location avec l'elegance et la perfection des gentleman anglais. Vous trouverez un endroit comme sur les photos, et si Ian est en France, Elsio est son homme de confiance pour vous recevoir sur place. Maison très confortable pour 8 personnes, cuisine très bien équipée, au calme...proche de tout, dans un petit coin de paradis.
