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.

An excellent holiday and keen to return!

Property was beautiful and catered perfectly for our needs. Proximity to beaches etc was a big plus too. We would be glad to return and stay again in this property.

Wonderful Weekend Stay

5 of 5
We have been coming to Vale do Lobo for over 25 years and this villa was a real find. The location is perfect for both the square and beach. We were three couples and the fact all three bedrooms had their own en-suites was great. Would definitely recommend a stay here and we will definitely book again when returning.
