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.

The apartment was well furnished with comfortable beds, good air con and shutters throughout. It has 3 balconies that are all well furnished and a great place to catch the sun at any time of day. The kitchen was reasonably well stocked with everything we needed. The whole apartment was spotless and there was plenty of hot water. The complex is quite large but beautifully kept and superbly maintained with a beautiful pool area and restaurant. Praia da Luz is a lovely place to stay. It was very quiet over Christmas (as expected) but the weather was fantastic and the apartment was a short walk to the beautiful beach and many varied restaurants. There were still plenty of restaurants open over the holidays and it was never a problem getting a table! There are several supermarkets with walking distance which provide everything you need on a day to day basis. Celia was fantastic to book with and always replied to our emails very promptly and provided any information we needed. Thank you. In summary, we would go back to Praia da Luz over Christmas again and would recommend this apartment.

Wonderful to be able to eat outside, vive l'Algarve ! Within walking distance shops, bars and restaurants, again we thought everything would have been closed but no!! Plenty of walks nearby or within short car distance and thank you for the various internet sites ...Our only regret was leaving !
