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 house is in a great location, a short driving distance from supermarkets etc., but extremely calm and restful. Great (big) pool, everything you need in the villa too. Totally recommend it!

This one was by far the best, and although a little far back from the coast and shops etc. It exceeded our expectations. As previous reviews have mentioned, Steve and Janie are perfect hosts, there is nothing that is too much trouble for them and are eager to please and ensure that all guests are happy! Steve ran a couple of us down to the shops a couple of times to stock up on a few essentials, and also kindly drove us to a golf venue to book a round later in the week. The taxi service (Pav and Olga) provide an equally excellent service by making sure you have immediate transport whenever you need it. The villa itself has the most amazing outdoor area, with the two pools and interesting seating areas and brilliant bar! Which we fully utilised. The rooms and bathrooms are first class, and feature modern furnishings. Couldn't really fault it, apart from ageing dishwasher (but it still worked!). Local town and beach is very nice and features an excellent restaurant on the beach. Don't hesitate to book this place, it's perfect for a group of friends or relatives. We will stay again!

The villa catered for all the needs of our group. The villa was spotless on our arrival and it was good to have the sheets and towels changed 3 times while we were there. All the rooms were of a good size and we never felt that we getting on top of each other. The playroom was a great extra which catered for not only the children but also the grown ups. The swimming pool was ideal as it had a ladder at the deep end but also graduated steps in the shallow end which encouraged the younger members to spend many happy hours splashing about. The grounds of the villa were generous with plenty of room for the children to play. The villa is only a 5 minuet walk to the beach and also all the amenities of the town, including many great restaurants. Algarve Vacations were a great company to work with, special thanks to Olivia, who handled my booking and Carina their rep in Portugal. I would have no hesitation in booking this villa again and recommending it to friends.
