A welcoming home away from home: a holiday rental in Alte.

The village of Alte is a beautiful example of the Algarve as it was once was. This village, which dates back to Roman times, is characterised by whitewashed houses, which – as is typical of this region – are found amidst the trees and mountains. Alte has a rural, laid-back feel but is close enough to bustling Albufeira and Vilamoura for those seeking a little more action. HomeAway has numerous apartments and villas in Alte. Everything from spacious and comfortable apartments with internet and wheelchair accessibility to luxurious villas with spectacular views and swimming pools can be found when searching for accommodations in Alte with HomeAway.

Alte holiday apartments and villas aren't HomeAway’s only options in the region however: accommodations in nearby Albufeira are a terrific option for those seeking a livelier location. Rentals in Vilamoura place visitors in a chic and trendy area, while even further to the west is the lovely coastal town of Lagos.

Things to do

Alte Old Town:

Alte has an interesting old town. The church dates back to the 13th century and is home to various rare and unique pieces of art dating from the 16th century. Also found in the old town is a functioning 13th century water mill as well as numerous shops selling locally produced crafts and products.

Big and Small Springs:

A trip to the springs is like a trip back in time. The Fonte Grande and Fonte Pequena are found within Alte’s borders. What once served as a gathering spot for locals to fill their pitchers and wash the laundry is now a relaxing place to picnic or simply unwind.

Albufeira:

The bustling tourist hub of Albufeira is located about 30 minutes from Alte. There, visitors can stroll the old town's cobblestone streets, enjoy the many stores and restaurants, take a swim at Fisherman's Beach, and dance the night away on the famous Albufeira strip.

Enjoy a multitude of beaches:

Alte is about 20 minutes away from several beaches, including the Praia da Falésia and Olhos d’Agua. Falesia has an extensive stretch of sand and is family friendly. The beach at Olhos d’Agua is directly linked to the main square of the town with the same name, giving it an urban feel.

Silves:

The town of Silves is located about 25 minutes from Alte. This town, situated on the Arade river, is characterised by its large Moorish castle, the best preserved and oldest in the Algarve. Also worth visiting is Silves Cathedral and the castle walls, both of which offer gorgeous views.

Loule:

The village of Loule is best known for its gypsy market, held every Saturday. There visitors can find locally made crafts and delicacies. There is also a very fine daily market located in the Moorish-style market hall where fresh produce, meats, fish and handcrafted spirits are on sale.

Weather in Alte

The Algarve’s climate is one of its main attractions; over 3,000 hours of sunshine are recorded per year. Not surprisingly, summer is the most popular season. Temperatures average around 28ºC, but often rise well into the 30s. Atlantic breezes keep things cool. Spring and fall are also wonderful times to visit, when temperatures average 17 – 20ºC, the water is relatively warm and sunshine is plentiful. Winters are mild with an average of 15º. Rainfall is most common in December and January.

Travel to Alte

Travellers looking to visit Alte are advised to fly into Faro International Airport (FAO), which has service to most major UK and continental European destinations. Alte is located about 30 miles from there, with the easiest route via car or taxi. The drive takes about 40 minutes along the A22 or N125. Alternatively, travellers can take the bus, though transferring in Faro city centre and in Loule is necessary. Timetables are available online.

If you just want to relax and enjoy the beautiful weather, this is a great place to go. The pool and whirlpool are very nice for a refreshing stay in the water. The house itself is spacious, well-maintained, very clean and is decorated very nicely! It has all the equipement for a nice and relax stay. The owner/manager did provide a very good customer service. And also, if you like the game of golf this is where you want to be. From the garden you can watch the tee of Vale do Lobo Royal course hole 6 and the Par 3 of 7 so you can enjoy a day of watching golf! The courses are only a 5 minute drive away and are both very nice. And there are many courses in the neighborhood. Vale do lobo itself has, next to the very nice 36 holes golf course, nice beaches, nice restauarants and lots of things to do. The surrounding villages are also nice. Within a 30 minutes drive you will find some aquaparks and other things to do. Absolutely a place where we will come back in the future!

The Villa was ideal for us, plenty of space and gardens for the little one, bedrooms downstairs-great for mum who struggles with stairs. The pool was great as was the options of dining inside or outside the villa. Close to many restaurants, shops and beaches. We had a car so ideal to get about. Villa was clean, had everything we needed and Jean and Elena went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed-especially with the little one. A truly memorable week and special time with family. Thank you both!!

It is extremely spacious, clean and well maintained with equipment and facilities for every need and more.Outdoors was particularly superb with a large patio area, large swimming pool and gardens with barbecue, sun loungers, sofas and chairs, pool table, table tennis, and for the children a swing and trampoline. The entrance to the property is securely gated and alarmed. A vehicle is required to get to local beaches and attractions and taxis are quite cheap with a typical cost of 15 -20 euros from Almancil to Vilamoura marina which is well worth a visit. We had a superb and enjoyable holiday at this villa and would stay here again. The owner Mr John Cushing is extremely helpful and friendly.We were pleasantly surprised with a mid week visit where the Villa was thoroughly cleaned and new clean towels provided. Simply faultless .
