One of the places where tourists to these parts can find tranquil holiday accommodation is the village of Carrapateira.

Things to do

-Beaches: The beaches in Bordeira are rated as one of Portugal’s prettiest and with good reason. The Praia da Bordeira is adorned with three kilometres of fine brown sands bordered by rugged limestone cliffs. One of the key attractions of this beach is that it’s rarely crowded; another is that it provides sublime surfing conditions. To find a surfing and bodyboarding schools holidaymakers can venture further to the Praia do Amado. Both beaches are within easy reach of Carrapateira holiday rentals.

-Food and drink: Visitors in Carrapateira holiday homes can take advantage of the fantastic eateries in the village and in the larger town of Bordeira to acquire a taste for Portuguese cuisine. Many a tourist would recommend a meal at Sitio do Rio which is close to the beach and offers visitors a great seafood variety. Prices are relatively pocket-friendly and portions are quite generous.

-Sightseeing: Bordeira possesses a unique ambiance that you won’t find in most other typical Algarve towns. Instead of the usual rows of whitewashed buildings, tourists strolling through this town will encounter staggered buildings of vibrant colours. As they admire the features of this locale they can take a seat in one of the many cafes there and enjoy their favourite beverage.

-Landmarks: There are a number of interesting landmarks of rich historical and cultural significance which guests of Carrapateira holiday homes will want to take the time to visit. The simple, stoic, whitewashed Nossa Senhora da Conceiçao church is one of these. It dates back to the 16th century and was built close to the town’s fort. The fort itself was constructed in 1673 by the then governor of Algarve.

We have visited and enjoyed the resort several times and have never been disappointed. The agent is very easy to deal with and makes the process very easy and worry free. She communicates well and promptly. There is also lovely reception staff on hand at the resort to offer help should you need advice or assistance. Mar da Luz is a most beautifully maintained and safe complex. The grounds are immaculate and within the complex you are spoiled with both an outdoor pool and indoor spa area. We have stayed twice in a first floor apartment and once in a two bedroom with mezzanine and hot tub and we found them all beautiful, homely and comfortable with lovely view from the balcony. The resort is situated a 30 minute stroll from the beautiful sandy beach and lovely restaurants in Luz. There are plenty of places to visit from this location but you would need a car to get about. We love it here and have no hesitation in recommending this place.

We were warmly welcomed by Tracey and Adrian, who manage the property. Everything was in perfect condition and the apartment was very well equipped, with all that we needed. Small things, but as we self cater quite a bit, we particularly appreciated small touches, like having a knife sharpener and blender available to use. The apartment feels light, spacious and very comfortable. The best thing of all was having a balcony that was almost entirely sheltered from any wind, so we were able to enjoy gorgeous warm sunny days sitting outside in the middle of winter! The apartment is perfectly situated right by the Marina, just a short walk from restaurants and cafes. Just a slightly longer walk takes you into Lagos town, with a lovely fresh food market and many other restaurants to choose from. All my communications with Az and Carla (the property owners) were answered promptly and helpfully. We also felt very comfortable knowing that Tracey and Adrian were only a phone call away, if we did need any help. I can thoroughly recommend this apartment. I'm sure it is wonderful in the summer time, but we personally loved the quiet and unexpected warmth of our winter stay.
