Things to do

Sail the seas:

Portimao is well known across the globe as a top site for sailing. The location on the Atlantic Ocean makes for perfect weather conditions; the water is calm and winds are calmer here than on the western coastline. Portimao hosts numerous prestigious sailing events throughout the year, including the Portugal Match Cup.

Praia Da Rocha:

The golden sands of Praia da Rocha lure visitors year after year. This beach on the Atlantic Ocean boasts perfectly clean waters, soft sand, and a strong infrastructure; bars and restaurants dot the area making it a true oasis.

Alvor Boardwalk:

This boardwalk guides visitors through a nationally protected nature reserve. A wide variety of habitats are found in the reserve, including sand dunes, farmland, salt pans, as well as fresh and saltwater marshes. The birdlife is abundant and the scenery breathtaking.

Praia de Alvor:

Visitors to the Praia de Alvor can enjoy a day on a stunning, unspoilt beach. Warm golden sands are lapped by clear ocean waters. A few vendors are located nearby, otherwise the area is more or less untouched.

Museu de Portima:

An impressive collection of documents and artefacts await visitors to the Museu de Portima. Located in a former factory, the museum covers approximately 3,280 square feet. Guests can learn about the history of the area from prehistoric times to the present day. The museum also houses temporary exhibits.

Lighthouse Portimao:

The Portimao Lighthouse is located on the east side of the Portimao harbour. It was first lit in 1893 and has a light range of ten miles. The views from the tower are beautiful, making it a particularly romantic spot at sunset.

Weather in the Portimao region

The Portimao region enjoys a temperate, Mediterranean climate. The summer months are hot and dry with temperatures averaging around 28ºC. However, temperatures can rise well into the mid-30s during the end of July and early August. The winters in Portimao are mild with temperatures rarely dropping below 10ºC. The most rain falls in March. Fall and spring are delightfully mild and significantly less crowded, making these seasons a nice alternative.

Travel to the Portimao region

Portimao is located approximately 40 miles from Faro Airport (FAO). Direct flights to Faro International Airport are available from most major cities in Europe all year. To reach the towns of Portimao region, hiring a car is a popular option. There are several agencies located at the airport, though pre-arranging can save time and money. The drive is a straight shot along the A22 and takes a little under an hour.

The apartment was very well equipped, very clean and extremely comfortable. Wonderful memory foam bed. Isabel and Greg were wonderful hosts. We would recommend to friends and family and hope to return next year.

It even had an eighth bedroom with en suite that I didn't know about. The swimming pool, jacussi , tennis court, table tennis, pool table etc were used by our party constantly. The bedrooms and en suites were lovely and had lots of wardrobe space. The towels were changed half way through the week. For a large Villa it had everything we needed. I have found in the past, great difficulty in getting 7 bedrooms that were all on the ground floor or above. So many of the larger villas have 2 or 3 bedrooms in the basement which is not ideal especially in March, so this Villa was just superb. Two suites on the first floor and the other bedrooms on the ground floor. I have never before been in a Villa that has such a well equipped kitchen. It was incredible. Everything I needed for cooking was there and more besides. The Villa has a back gate that leads out onto the first tee of Penina golf course. That's just about the icing on the cake. Finally I have to say that Spring Villas were a great company to rent from. Right from the beginning of my booking, I could phone them any time if I had a query which is so important so well done, you certainly got it right.

We spent some time sitting on the balcony with its view of the beach almost every day, and on the days when it was a bit too cold we kept warm inside with the efficient halogen heater. The apartment now has a television and wifi, which were greatly appreciated. Rebecca is very helpful and friendly and lives only a short distance away so she's easy to contact if help is needed.
