Things to do in Alte, Portugal

The location of Alte makes it a great base for exploring inland Portugal, with plenty of walking, cycling and horse riding opportunities around the hilly surrounds, offering great views out to the coast.

Alte is also a popular destination for golf lovers, with several 18-hole golf courses all located only a short drive away from the village within a 20km radius.

The small picture-postcard town of Loule is a 30-minute drive from Alte, and although much of the old town was destroyed in an earthquake in 1755, still captivates visitors with what remains. The town is home to a famous carnival in February, considered to be one of the best in Portugal, and the Gypsy markets on a Saturday well worth a look.

Great stay, great apartment, great location

5 of 5
The apartment is impeccable, clean and tidy with everything you could need, including a safe for valuables. There’s an outdoor patio area which gets the morning sun, lovely to have breakfast out there! There is a nice pool in the complex and another larger one at the hotel part of the Cerro Mar establishment just across the road. We tended to use the larger pool most of the time as there is a bar, and food and ice cream stand there, plus the self-catering pool got a little busy with families at the time we were there. We also ate in the hotel restaurant one evening where there was a Portuguese singer and music and we ate traditional Portuguese steak! Delicious! There’s a convenience store right outside the complex which sells water, food and groceries, toiletries etc which is really useful, and 2 major supermarkets a couple of minutes drive/10-15 min walk away. The complex is on a steep hill which you walk straight down to some steps to get to the Old Town, 5-10 minute walk maximum (depending on your pace!) The steps bring you straight into the main square where all the restaurants and shops are, and then it’s just a few minutes to the beautiful sandy beach from there. The owners of the apartment have been really helpful and quick to respond to any queries, and helped us with airport transfers and also identified a place where we could go parasailing- a great experience! When we needed any taxis the hotel reception were pleased to order this for us and the cars were there within 5 minutes each time. I would definitely recommend this accommodation, thanks P & D!

This property was in exactly the location we had expected. Although small and basic it had all the necessities with the added bonus of wonderful views. The owners were very pleasant. I would definitely go there again.
