Visitors planning to spend their holidays in the resplendent coastline of southern Portugal will find that however long their stay, it ends too soon. What with the uninterrupted sunny weather, the miles of fine golden sands and the abundance of things to do they’ll find in Algarve. And we haven’t even mentioned the abundance of restaurants and entertainment joints holidaymakers will find at their disposal. Anyone going on holiday will want to experience utter luxury and HomeAway does its bit by providing tourists to this part of Portugal with classy holiday rentals in Monte Laguna. The pick of these are spacious, elegantly furnished holiday apartments that are equipped with such extras as swimming pools. The key attraction with Monte Laguna holiday homes, however, is that they are in the Vilamoura Resort and Golf Area which has several world-class courses.
-Golf: Vilamoura has made its name as a golfing holiday destination over several years and has become the automatic choice for most holidaymakers with such designs. Whether it’s the miles of straight drives at the Vilamoura Old Course or the 79-bunker Oceanico Laguna, or the magnificent clubhouse of the Oceanico Pinhal, golfers will find something unique and memorable wherever they partake of their rounds.
-Marina: Visitors staying in Monte Laguna holiday apartments and villas will have the opportunity to stroll along Vilamoura’s 1,000-berth marina. And it is worth the trouble if only for the sight of hundreds of boats and yachts bobbing gently in the waters of the Atlantic. But there is plenty to do in the marina as there several places where tourists can rent a boat and go exploring the caves along the coastline. There is also a great selection of watering holes and restaurants.
-Beach: Vilamoura, or indeed the greater Algarve locale is revered worldwide for the seaside experience it offers tourists. Right at the marina there is the Praia Marina which is highly conducive to lazy afternoon promenades. Praia Falesia is endowed with stunning cliffs that offer hikers incredible panoramas besides stretches of soft sand bordering crystal clear waters.
-Villages: There are a number of Algarvean villages within the Vilamoura vicinity which have managed to retain their ancient charm with the passing of years. One of these is the hillside town of Alte which is still covered by quaint little whitewashed houses and narrow stone streets. Here holidaymakers will be able to tour ancient churches as well as buy fresh produce from the weekly markets.
-Nightlife: Residents of holiday homes in Monte Laguna are assured of plenty of ways to entertain themselves come nightfall as there are quite a number of nightclubs in and around Vilamoura. There is always a place where a DJ is keeping dancefloors crowded or a live band serenading an audience. Every now and then Algarve hosts its own version of the famous Brazilian varnival.
The Algarve region is known for its fine year-round weather and this part of the Vilamoura Resort and Golf area is no exception. Those who book holiday homes in Monte Laguna between June and August will benefit from the warmest of the Vilamoura climate as they revel in 28 plus temperatures. But even those who choose to visit earlier or a bit later to avoid the summer crowds will be able to enjoy temperatures above 20°C as long as they arrive between April and October. The other months of the year are when the cold season is experienced. However, with temperatures even at this time averaging above 15°C, winter is rather mild.
To get to their Monte Laguna rentals visitors will first have to jet in through the Faro Airport, the Algarve region’s main international gateway. On arrival here visitors will be less than half an hour’s drive to their destination. Public buses and taxis are available to take them to their holiday homes. For those combining time in Spain and Portugal, there is the option of taking a bus from Seville straight to Faro. It’s a 6-hour drive but is a pocket-friendly €15.
