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.

                                                                                                      Loved this apartment. It is spacious, very well equiped, spotlessly clean and in a lovely location.

                                                                                                      Firstly let me say that Muriel the owner was in contact via email before our trip, ensuring we were provided with excellent information about the apartment, directions, key collection etc. She also arranged for a local contact to meet us on arrival, he showed us round the apartment and the facilities at the hotel, thank you Ian, much appreciated. This is an excellent apartment in a lovely location, with access to the pools, indoor/outdoor, gym, sauna etc in the nearby 4* Pestana Viking hotel. The beach is a very short walk away and although you can't see the water, it was lovely to hear the sound of the waves from the apartment. The apartment itself is very spacious and had everything we needed for our stay. Most importantly for me is that it was spotlessly clean. The kitchen is very well appointed, with fridge, freezer, cooker, dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, toaster, kettle and plenty of crockery/cutlery etc. The sitting room and bedroom are spacious and airy, both having direct access out to the private patio area and garden with lovely table, chairs and loungers. The bedroom has plenty of storage and a very comfortable bed. An added avantage is a safe, great for travel documents, money etc. Two bathrooms, one with bath/shower, the other with shower cubicle, were again spotlessly clean. The sitting room was very comfortable with sofas, dining table and great tv showing most uk channels and Sky sports. As for getting about, we didn't have a car but there is parking directly outside the apartment strictly for resident use. Alternatively there is an excellent bus service with a stop practically on the doorstep. There are restaurants and shops within a ten minute walk and these were more than adequate for our needs. Overall, I would highly recommend this apartment for families and couples who either want to stay within the area and make use of the superb facilities or, for those who wish to use the apartment as a base from which to explore what the rest of the Algarve has to offer. Finally, a big thank you to Muriel for great communication before and during our holiday, we really enjoyed our stay and hope to return soon.

The local team were incredibly helpful and welcoming. The villa's terraces afford some beautiful views and were a great place to relax. The villa is in a traditional village and close to local restaurants, bars, beach and shops selling some lovely local crafts. With that said, Armação de Pêra is amazing. Our family loved our time at Villa Beach Palace and recommend it to others.

The villa was absolutely beautiful, so very well equipped, in a fabulous location. It was very peaceful yet only a few minutes walk away from the restaurants, bars, supermarkets and beach. Would certainly recommend this property, many thanks!
