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.

Kitchen is a little dated, but everything you need is there. The dining area and lounge are spacious. The pool area is really great. It just needs a bigger area to be able to eat outside in a larger group if you want to. The bedrooms are laid out so that two families could share the house having 2 bedrooms and a bathroom per family, the areas are separated by the living room. The pool area is south facing and gets the sun all day long. The field has some pigs in which the kids loved and even named them all (Bacon, Chorizo etc). The local area is really quite except for some yapping dogs. There is a little supermarket a few minutes stroll away and a restaraunt on the main rod, but we wen't down to Alvor in the evening where there are plenty of good bars and restaurants. A taxi back is only a few euros. Finally the couple next door acted as housekeepers and were really helpful.

It has everything you could possibly need to make your holiday stress free. Neil and Helen were there waiting to greet us and show us around the apartment. We even had a lovely welcome of wine,water and milk!! Thank you so much we will definitely be back.
