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 really is beautiful, there's everything you could ask for. It's clean, spacious and peaceful. The main pool was the perfect size for us and the little plunge pool, which by the evening was really very warm, was a hit too. The bathrooms and bedrooms were all very spacious and clean. The outside area is really stunning, lots of places to sit and relax, plenty of seats, sun loungers and shade. We arrived around 10.30pm and received a very warm welcome from Steve and Janie who gave us drinks and a tour of the villa. They live just down the driveway from the villa, far enough to not feel that we would be watched or encroached upon at all but close enough that if we had a problem (which we didn't) we could get hold of them quickly. Steve very kindly ran us to the supermarket the next morning so we could do a grocery shop for the week and then came back for us a little time later with his trailer. They had great advice and great recommendations including a brilliant taxi service. Pav our taxi driver for the week was an absolute superstar!! I would recommend villa Camaleao in a heartbeat!

                                                                                                    We left our booking quite late this year and so had limited choice. Would probably not have chosen this location but it actually turned out ideal for us. The villa is located in a private residential area just outside Porches so very quiet in that respect. It is next to a road that is well used but the pool is on the other side of the villa from the road so no great issue. The villa itself is really well laid out and clean with living area totally open plan and open to the pool through large doors. Kitchen is exceptionally well appointed with everything you will need including dishwasher, washing machine and a really good coffee machine. Beds are all firm but comfortable, two upstairs and two downstairs, my wife and I used the downstairs one which also opens out to the pool. Everywhere is air conditioned which works really well. Very safe with shutters on all windows as well and an alarm system. Also a remote secured gate to the covered car parking area that keeps the car cool. Pool was very nice, never below 28 degrees while we stayed and a really good size for swimming in. Also it's a salt water system which is much kinder on your skin and nicer to swim in. The pool area is fabulous with loads of space for everyone, shade when you need it and excellent comfy sun beds umbrellas and a big swing chair. There is a built in BBQ which we didn't use but looked really good and a nice covered dining area for eating outdoors. Lots of external lighting including in the pool for sitting out all evening and night time swims. You will need a car here but there are so many great places to visit in the Algarve it's a mistake not to have one. There is a supermarket within 3 mins by car that has everything you need. Also there are half a dozen really nice restaurants at the same distance. There are also two really nice beaches within the same distance and evening entertainment. It's only 15 mins in the car to Carvoeiro for loads more restaurants and more entertainment. It's also very close to the water park, marine land, 25 mins to Albufeira, 40 mins to the airport and close to loads of smaller hidden beaches and nice nature walks. Ana, the owner, could not have been easier to deal with. Very responsive by email, text and we spoke before we completed our booking. She will meet you personally at the villa and show you around and is incredibly helpful. She also arranged towels and a maid at our request. Dealing with Ana could not have been easier. Highly recommended.

The property is situated within a 10 minute drive of Centianes, Benagil and Marinha beaches aswell as all the main supermarkets, so it is really well positioned. The villa itself is furnished to a high standard and has everything you could need for a great holiday. The rooms are big with air-conditioning throughout and there is plenty of space for a large family to live in (we are 6). The pool was large and clean with a generous outdoor area for relaxing after a swim. In particular the barbecue / dining area is a highlight and we used it every day for family meals. Beatrice made us feel welcome and was easily contactable if we needed to speak with her. Great villa, great location and cannot speak highly enough of our time there.
