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.

Travel to Carrapateira

The Faro Airport is usually the first port of call for most tourists from outside Portugal. Most commercial airlines and low-cost carriers will have seasonal flights during the summer months to this facility. Arriving travellers van take a bus from here to their holiday homes in Carrapateira. Unfortunately these buses are infrequent and those arriving on weekends should not expect to find any buses.

We made good use of the barbeque. The accessibility to both Arrifana beach and Monte Clerigo was brilliant. We particularly loved our morning walk on the beach, swim/body surf and coffee at Monte Clerigo - about as near as your can get to paradise! Vale da Telha is so laid back, Aljezur town is lovely. A visit to the Mercado for fresh fish and a jar of honey followed by a lounge at a nearby cafe for coffee and a pastry - you cant beat it! I would recommend this lovely villa to couples or families. We loved it!

I spent a great deal of time in the hammock especially in the morning and evening after surfing. There is also a table for sitting down for a meal. Or simply walk out of the door which goes straight into the beachside restaurant which serves good food and has friendly staff. There are also at least 3 or 4 restaurants close by, some in walking distance. My friend had the room on the left and I had the room on the right and my bed was a very big double and very comfortable! And my friends bed looked the same size and mattress. The wifi was excellent. Antonio was exceptionally friendly and even called to check everything was ok after we settled in. I intend to go back next year.
