Make a holiday home in Carrapateira your home away from home

With beaches that are considered to be some of the best in the world, Bordeira, in the Algarvian town of Aljezur is one of hottest tourist spots in Portugal. One of the places where tourists to these parts can find tranquil holiday accommodation is the village of Carrapateira. But this locale has some attractions of its own as well; its beaches are popular with surfers and it boasts a number of interesting landmarks that stem from its peculiar history. HomeAway has different kinds of holiday rentals in Carrapateira to suit different needs.

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

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.

Stunning location beautiful home

5 of 5
This is a great house fully equipped with everything you need for a holiday that feels like home from home. The kitchen is amazingly well equipped. A two minute walk from the local village with cafes restaurants and shops. It is only 15 minutes to walk to the local beach too. I would highly recommend this home and the host went out of his way to help us when we were very late checking in.

Great place for an inexpensive holiday

5 of 5
This is a charming little place within a minute of a beautiful beach, plenty of good (and some not so good) restaurants and ideally located as a base to explore the Algarve. It’s close to Lagos so there’s plenty more going on not far away. Also about 1 hour away from Faro airport, which is handy. It has a fast internet connection, which makes a pleasant change to much of the accommodation in Portugal. Well-equipped with microwave, washing machine, cooker, fridge-freezer etc. It’s relatively inexpensive, presumably because it’s not large; 2 bedrooms and a living room/kitchen and a bath/shower/toilet. It used to be a fisherman’s cottage apparently. We didn’t find parking to be a problem although we went in April so not peak season. The owner, Allan, is a nice guy and a mine of local information and he seems to know everyone. Very helpful. Some observations (not complaints) in order to maintain the 5 star rating: it could do with a good spring clean. I think it’s managed by a company, not the owner. There are some building materials stacked against the rear wall, which need to be removed and have created a damp trap and this sometimes causes a smell of damp in the main bedroom.
