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.

We have looked at this villa for the past few years but were lucky to book it in time for part of our Algarve winter holiday. As soon as you drive into the property you are encased in a beautiful house and garden. As the whole side of the house is floor to ceiling glass, the light, even in winter, is wonderful. Furnishings are top class, beds excellent and well stocked kitchen and appliances. Owners go out of their way to make you feel at home. We will be back.

There is a private swimming pool (with a shallow end for children) and plenty of space for lounging and dining both inside and out. there is also a BBQ on a covered patio which is ideal for lunches and suppers and with the sea only minutes away by car and some good local restaurants you have everything you need for a lovely holiday! Can't wait to go back!

The best equipped kitchen with everything any cook would need. Flawless booking, meet and greet and service from the owners and will certainly return. Solrio still the best accommodation in Alvor and thus apartment does not disappoint.
