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.

Loads of space, really lovely large swimming pool and terrace area perfect for lazy days in the sun with beautiful views. Would have been nice to have the option of having the pool heated and perhaps some lights in the pool area but neither of these things are essential!The villa is in the perfect position away from the hustle and bustle of the main resorts yet close enough to the coast (about 25 mins!). Will definitely be returning and thoroughly recommend!
