Make a holiday home in Odeceixe your home away from home

The Algarve region of Portugal is full of interesting towns to satisfy the adventure and leisure-seeking tourist. While many are familiar with such locations as Vilamoura and Faro, they may not know what Aljezur has to offer. This town is nestled in a beautiful green valley which provides amazing scenery and has remains dating back to the 10th century. It is a laid back locale where people still farm using traditional methods. One of the parishes of this municipality is Odeceixe which is found towards the north of Aljezur and forms part of the Vincentine Coast. Those booking holiday homes in Odeceixe will therefore have the luxury of choosing from apartments and villas close to the beach. There are also intimate cottages that are situated in the Nature Park of Southwest Alentejo. In most of these Odeceixe holiday rentals visitors will enjoy such facilities as barbecues, swimming pools and satellite TV.

Things to do

-Beaches: Even those who’ve been around Portugal and seen the pretty coastline in other Algarve locales will admit that Odeceixe has one of the best beaches in the country. It is a real haven for sunbathers with miles of fine sand interspersed with towering cliffs. To see incredible panoramas one can drive up these cliffs. Visitors will want to get here before August to avoid almost cruel temperatures and crowds of holidaymakers.

-Water sports: Booking a holiday home in Odeceixe as the summer crowds peter out is a good idea also because the cool weather and winds ushered in by autumn are great for surfing. The winds are also experienced in the months leading up to summer and avid surfers can head out in April to take advantage of the juicy breakers. Tourists can also get boats and gear for canoeing in the sea waters.

-Food and drink: Right at the beach visitors will find great restaurants where they can quell their hunger pangs with sizzling Portuguese delicacies. One of the must-visits is the Cafe Restaurante Primavera. Visitors not willing to cook in their Odeceixe holiday rentals can visit this restaurant for tasty grilled fish and home-made pasta. Another place visitors can get fresh fish is the Restaurant Ruth – O Ivo.

-Monuments: Visitors will want to cast eyes on the ruins of the 10th century Moorish castle which sit on top of a hill, offering majestic panoramas over Aljezur. In the old town, visitors will be intrigued by the sight of whitewashed houses and cobblestone streets.

-Countryside: This town sits amid lush cork and pine trees and avid hikers and nature lovers will be delighted to amble about surrounded by the beauty of this scene. This is thanks to the location of Aljezur in the Parque Nacional do Sudoeste Alentejano e Costa Vicentina, a large natural park that occupies a huge chunk of Algarve’s west coast.

Weather in Odeceixe

Like most other parts of Aljezur, this locale boasts temperate Mediterranean climate. This means that winters are mild, rarely ever attaining 10°C. And the warm season starts from May with temperatures staying above 20°C until autumn gives way to winter in October. Most tourists to this region book holiday homes in Odeceixe during the usual summer season which comes between June and August. At this time temperatures range between 24 and 26°C on average and barely any rainfall is recorded.

Travel to Odeceixe

Like other Algarve-bound holidaymakers, visitors headed to Odeceixe holiday homes will fly in through the Faro Airport. From here they can get a shuttle to take them to Aljezur. They could also opt for the public bus or the taxi if they don’t mind paying a few extra Euros. It will take about one and a half hours to travel the 108km between the airport and Aljezur.

There is a private swimming pool (with a shallow end for children) and plenty of space for lounging and dining both inside and out. there is also a BBQ on a covered patio which is ideal for lunches and suppers and with the sea only minutes away by car and some good local restaurants you have everything you need for a lovely holiday! Can't wait to go back!

The west coast is wild and very quiet out of season (which was just what we wanted!). This was a great place to come home to every night after our travels and walking trips.

                                                                                                      This is a very well-designed attractive villa. There is great attention to detail in both the furnishings and layout. We were both impressed by the tasteful decorative touches from the dried flowers to tile mosaics on the walls. An example of the design is the large built in closets in the upstairs bedrooms - I have never stayed in a rental with as much closet and drawer space. The property was extremely clean and well-maintained. The beds were all comfortable. The villa is spacious both in the grounds and inside. Where some may have been tempted to have 4 or 5 bedrooms, the 3 good sized bedroom and large living areas given a certain dignity and sense of spaciousness. The kitchen was well equipped as far as pots and pans, dishes and cutlery. The appliances all worked. Note - there is a clothes drying rack but no clothes dryer as such, to go with the washer. There was a beautiful view of the valley from this hillside location from both inside the villa and the outside terraces and pool deck. When it is clear, one can see Portimao and the ocean on the horizon, about 20km away. There is a neighbour to the east side that is fairly close to the villa, but they kept to themselves. The west side of the house and around the pool deck is very private. The villa is set well back from the road down a steep driveway. The location gives a sense of peacefulness. We walked into the pleasant town of Monchique a few times and also ate at the nice restaurant at the top of the driveway - the O Fuor da Foia, rated highly in Tripadvisor. You need to be reasonably fit given the road is steep. Monchique has a large modern InterMarche supermarket and some smaller grocery stores and butcher shops. There are also a number of pleasant cafes. There is a large shopping mall in Portimao. A car is recommended. If you have one, the villa makes a good base for exploring the region. The west coast is about 45 min away by secondary road, while Portimao and the A22 main tollway is about 20min south. We went as far as Odeceixe in the north west. Despite the weather during or stay in late Oct, we were able to use the pool a bit when the sun was shining brightly. It is not heated and was cool by that time of year, especially since we had some unusual cloudy days and rain. We would not hesitate to rent from Nigel again. He was easy to deal with and extremely responsive to any questions. Given its high quality, the villa is a real bargain in the low and shoulder season. Highly recommend it.
