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.

As a multi generational group we really appreciated the generous space the villa provided so we were all able to 'do our own thing' and then get together for lovely long relaxing meals in the outside dining area. The grandchildren loved the beautiful sandy beach which is an easy walk from the villa and we all enjoyed the pool and tennis court. The local shops were very convenient which was fortunate as nine people seem to get through large quantities of food and drink. We hired cars, but hardly used them as everything was in walking distance and we were content to just enjoy the villa and its grounds - our youngest grandson (nearly 2) was fascinated by the lemons and grapefruits growing in the garden - we had to do several trips around each day to see if more had ripened! Everyone agreed a very successful holiday - we'll be back!
