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.

A Little Bit of Paradise

5 of 5
Margaret the owner describes this as "a little bit of paradise" and it's hard to disagree. The villa really is as large and secluded as the photos suggest. It serves as the owners home for much of the year and is furnished and equipped to a very high standard. The paintings on the wall are all Margaret's own (this is a good thing as she is a former art teacher!) and everything has the feel of quality. When the villa is rented the owners live in an apartment underneath the main house, so they were around and about if you needed them but were certainly never intrusive and the house, pool and garden were very much ours. The setting is perfect for an away from it all break. The road past the house is very quiet with only occasional traffic and you will probably hear more birds than cars. I never quite figured out where the land of this property ended and the next began, but we would walk for an hour without meeting a fence or another soul. There's a very nice restaurant 5 minutes away and a 15 minute drive gets you to Alvor, Portimao or Monchique.
