Make holiday rental accommodation or villa in Guia, Portugal your home away from home

A holiday in a villa in Guia is an ideal option for almost any holiday in the sun. Cheap family holidays to Guia will be wonderfully entertaining, and there is a wide range of attractions for couples too. Located in the centre of the Algarve’s Atlantic coastline near Albufeira, Guia is a graceful, peaceful and very small Portuguese village just a few miles from the Algarve’s most popular and vibrant resort, Albufeira.

Things to do on holiday in Guia, Portugal

Much of your time will be spent lying back on one of the quiet Algarve beaches, just 15 minutes to the south of a Guia villa. This stretch of the Algarve coastline is blissfully peaceful and uncrowded, even during the peak season. Within just a few minutes of leaving your Guia villa you can stake out a plot on the huge Praia da Gale or one of the pristine cove beaches which surround the village.

Zoomarine is a magnificent place to take children. The performing dolphins and seals captivate children and adults alike, and the enormous water park also provides many hours of excited entertainment! However, with the range of children’s clubs available, parents can take a quick tour of Cliff Richard’s vineyard, the Adega do Cantor.

In the evenings, Guia springs to life from a quaint and charming Portuguese village into a hub of activity as the range of alluring restaurants tempt tourists and locals to sample traditional Portuguese specialties and select delicacies from around Europe. The weekly market is a huge blessing for those renting a Guia villa as the finest, freshest ingredients can be bought for very little.

There are a few sights which are defiantly worth investigation from a villa in Guia. The charming 17th century church is a wonderful place to visit, especially for the simply, yet beautifully, carved high altar inside.

Places to holiday in Guia, Portugal

When you take a holiday rental villa in Guia, Albufeira will become a familiar town. It is not only the most famous resort in the Algarve, but also has that sensational combination of stunning beaches and endless shopping which some people manage to combine wonderfully whilst on holiday! The old town of Albufeira has an exceptional number of interesting sights and restaurants, whilst the new centre is the location for a sport, leisure and activity. There are over twenty beaches, all with gloriously powder soft sand and many water sport opportunities to take advantage of.

Weather in Guia, Portugal

Basking in 300 days of sun every year and average temperatures annually of almost 20˚C, it is hard to take a self catering Guia villa during a poor week for weather. Winters are extremely mild, whilst during the summer months, daily temperatures routinely hit the mid 30’s (˚C).

Flights to Guia, Portugal

Faro International Airport (FAO) is the main centre for tourists arriving into the Algarve, and within half an hour of leaving the airport, you can be at the front door of any rental accommodation in Guia. A rental car is a great addition to have on holiday in Guia due to the rural setting, but local transport is cheap.

The apartment is very well located, clean and spacious. A few minutes walk and you are in the lovely cobbled streets of Guia, with lots of nice restaurants to choose from. Hopefully you like piri piri chicken - because there is a lot of that on offer! Nigel was exceptionally helpful, and the directions to the apartment from the airport were spot on. Highly recommended.

It is very spacious, comfortable, clean and extremely well-equipped - the owners have thought of everything and it feels like home from home. The games room is brilliant and the pool is great, as is the outdoor barbecue and gazebo area - we loved eating outside. We also enjoyed the comfortable sofas and large TV screen where we were able to watch DVDs and play XBox games when it rained. The villa is situated in a lovely quiet semi-rural area, yet is only a short drive from bustling Albufeira. Overall I would not hesitate to recommend this villa, although you need a hire car in order to explore the area properly and get to the beach and Algarve shopping nearby which has an excellent supermarket. Guia itself has some delightful restaurants and was within walking distance. This part of the Algarve is stunning and we were all agreed that we would love to return.
