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.

The weather was great when we were there, easter weekend was busy in the town but the rest of the week quieter. The pool was great but evenings were chilly - the fifth put-up bed could have done with a light duvet as the other beds had but otherwise the apartment was very clean and well appointed. We thouroughly enjoyed our stay in the apartment and Lagos town and we will definitely return. Andrew and Alison.

This apartment is furnished to a very high standard, It was immaculate throughout. The beds were the comfiest I have ever slept in and the cotton bed linen so soft and luxurious. We used the outside terrace every evening and lit the beautiful lanterns that were provided. In the mornings we purchased our coffee from the lovely little coffee shop on the corner and sat on the apartment front balcony and watched Lagos come alive. Nothing has been forgotten in this beautiful apartment, Celia has furnished it with impeccable taste. I can recommend the Italian restaurant on the corner as a wonderful place to eat and the food in Baffi Bar is fab if you fancy a light lunch. This was our 4th time in Lagos but certainly the best place we have stayed. We only hope we will be able to book this property again for our next trip as it is by far the best place we have lived. I can't thank you enough Celia for making my birthday a very special one indeed. Your beautiful apartment is a little piece of heaven ideally located within the heart of Lagos. You made turning 50 a little easier. Best wishes from the Sharpe family. x
