Make a holiday rental villa or house in Porches, Algarve your home away from home

Those looking to find a slice of traditional Algarve life, look no further. Perfect for holidays, Porches is one of few remaining traditional Algarve seaside fishing villages that seem to have completely bypassed the effects of mass tourism in the region. The whitewashed houses in Porches still have red tiled roofs, and there is a genuine atmosphere of peaceful, rural life. For holidays, Porches houses cannot be beaten, as your holiday villa will seem a lifetime from the bustle of the coast, yet within 5 km of home, you can be relaxing on the golden sand at Benagil or Armacao de Pera, exploring the medieval streets of Lagoa or simply relaxing with a drink overlooking the Mediterranean.

Things to do in Porches, Algarve

Porches is surrounded by countryside covered in lush vineyards and blossoming orange groves which are a delight for walking amongst. There are many miles of walking, cycling and horse riding trails throughout the Porches area, and despite the lack of tourists, these are well marked and beautifully maintained.

The golf courses of Vale de Milho, Gramacho and Vale da Pinta are all relatively close to a holiday rental house in Porches, Algarve, offering any visitor with a handicap certificate some magnificent golf in the sun.

Porches is best known for its pottery production. Porches is one of few places where traditional potters still work, producing the finest Algarve pottery you can find. Many visitors come to Porches purely for the pottery, buying the beautifully coloured pieces by the car full.

Places to visit on holiday in Porches, Algarve

The coastline of Porches is typically Algarve, with perfectly soft stretches of sand lying between jagged rock outcrops which jut out into the clear, azure waters of the Mediterranean. In taking a hire car, you can ensure that finding the perfect beach is easy, and those wishing to try a few water sports can head towards any of the beaches in the region, especially those around Carvoeiro and Albufeira.

Weather in Porches, Algarve

The climate of the Algarve is fantastic. The summer seems to last forever in Porches, with daily temperatures reliably breaking the 30˚C mark from May all the through until late September. The arrival of winter is not a reason to leave Porches either. Temperatures rarely drop below 15˚C during the day in winter either, which makes activity holidays all the more enjoyable.

Travel to Porches, Algarve

Faro International Airport (FAO) is no more than an hour from a holiday rental property in Porches, and receives a vast range of inbound flights from the UK. There are a huge number of airlines offering cheap flights to Faro, leaving from almost every major airport throughout the British Isles, and some very minor ones as well! There are a great range of airport transfers from Faro to nearby Carvoeiro, but a hire car is a great option as Porches is a rural community and many of the Algarve’s attractions are spread out along the coast.

The villa itself was very spacious and all the rooms of a great standard, with a beautiful balcony space for all the bedrooms on the top floor. The outside space was superb, with a lovely dining area and outdoor BBQ. The pool area was also great with plenty of sun-loungers for everyone, and there were also plenty of shaded areas to relax in. A real bonus was the pool table and table tennis, which kept both adults and children entertained throughout the week. The villa is set in a secure location within walking distance of local restaurants and a water park, and only a short drive to the town and beach. Our hosts, Steve and Janie, were great, very friendly and helpful! Would definitely recommend this villa to anyone looking for a relaxing holiday.

Communication with the owner was quick & easy, right down to the directions supplied. We were quite late arriving, due to a delayed flight and then a huge queue at the car rental station at the airport. We had informed Corinna, the house manager, of the delay, but she said no problem. True enough, she was waiting for us when we finally arrived, made us extremely welcome, and showed us round the house as promised. The weather was very hot, but the house was cool despite there being no air-conditioning. The house was extremely well-equipped, even down to a dishwasher. There is enough crockery & cutlery to hold a dinner party for several guests, the kitchen is large, the bathrooms have everything you may need. Everything was spotlessly clean. The outside area is fabulous, with a large swimming pool, a couple of shady areas and plenty of sun for those who want it. For those who wish to bare it all, the whole area is reasonably secluded. The electrically operated gates and shady parking for the car were very welcome. We have had several villa holidays over the years, mostly around Spain, but this was our first self-catering foray into Portugal. I can confidently say that it was the best villa we have ever stayed in, and will definitely be looking for another visit in the very near future.

The process with Algarve Vacation was very smooth and any doubts we had due to dealing with them direct were soon put to rest after communication with them. Olivia from the management company was excellent & Andre who meet us at the villa on arrival was also a pleasure to deal with. The villa was just as good as the pictures and the games room was also an added bonus. The only thing that let it down was it is advertised as having fitness equipment but there wasn't any!!. We had a couple of issues with needing a couple of things that were missing in the kitchen but this was dealt with the same day & the broken sunbed we found on arrival was also changed very quickly. The villa was spotlessly clean and had plenty of room for our party of 11 & the location was also great, quiet cut de sac & only 5 min walk to the beach and restaurants. Plenty of parking for the 2 cars we had as well. We had an issue with the pool due to the pump stopping working and a filter leaking meaning the pool started to drain away, this was repaired the next day and refilled & eventually the heating was put on to compensate (although we did miss 2 days of not being able to use the pool). Overall this villa is fantastic and we would book again without hesitation. Many thanks for a great holiday and hopefully will see you again. Scott P
