Colina Verde is a new residential development just outside the centre of the picturesque fishing village of Carvoeiro. Located in the Lagoa region of the Algarve, on Portugal’s southern coast, an apartment or holiday home in Colina Verde offers scenery, beaches, great weather and a variety of activities. Staying in Colina Verde, golf courses are never far away and so a holiday here is suitable for golf lovers, couples, friends and families, young and old.
Whether you’re staying in a holiday home or apartment in Colina Verde there’s always plenty to do. Many of the holiday homes for rental here have a swimming pool, but there are also plenty of beaches to try out locally too. Being close to the centre of Carvoeiro much of the accommodation in Colina Verde is within walking distance to shops, bars and restaurants. In addition there is a tennis club and two golf courses within a short drive. However, if you’re looking for Colina Verde Golf and Country Club this is actually further along the coast, beyond Faro.
Carvoeiro is a lovely fishing village that has grown more into a town in recent years because it’s such a popular place. The village has a few attractions itself which are close by when staying in a Colina Verde holiday apartment. These include an old ruined fort, all that remains of which is a fortified gate, but this is also next door to the attractive Shrine of Our Lady of the Incarnation (Nossa Senhora da Encarnacao).
A short distance from the main beach is Algar Seco. This natural attraction features water chimneys, grottos and more that have been eroded by the waves. Self catering accommodation in Colina Verde is perfect for families and the young at heart because within a short drive drive are two water parks and Zoomarine, where visitors can swim with dolphins. Colina Verde is also a great base for exploring the rest of the Algarve – cities like Faro and Albufeira are both within easy reach.
Choose to holiday in Colina Verde and you’ll benefit from a lovely Mediterranean climate. With daily high temperatures in the high 20’s C (low 80’s F) during the July and August the weather is hot but not unbearably so. Spring and autumn remain warm and winter temperatures are comfortably mild too.
