Things to do on holiday to Portimao, Portugal

Those taking one of the many Portimao houses will almost certainly already know of the glorious golden beaches that are the attraction for most people’s first visit to a self catering Portimao villa. The turquoise seas and soft sands, backed by imposing cliffs and sheltered by large headlands, are ideal for lazy days in the sun and family watersports holidays. You and your family can enjoy parasailing, scuba diving, water skiing, deep sea fishing, sailing and windsurfing, regardless of your technical prowess or experience, from a Portimao villa with ease. When looking for water sports centres, try the beach front or the new marina.

Portimao villas are a golfing haven. The fine climate, lush landscape and beautiful scenery mean that golf courses in Portimao have sprung up in the last 20 years, making Portimao apartments some of the finest places to stay for golf holidays in the Algarve. There are a huge range of golf courses in Portimao, but the main three, Alto, Morgado and Penina receive the most plaudits. All three are excellent 18 hole golf courses, combining taxing fairways winding past spectacular hazards and pristine greens, as well as driving ranges, putting greens and pro-shops for your use.

There are some beautiful sites to be seen in Portimao too. The 16th century Church is famous for having one of the most spectacularly decorated arch doorways in the whole of the Algarve, and archaeologists have uncovered some of the Algarve’s oldest roman villas in Portimao, adorned with beautiful mosaics. There are even signs of ancient Neolithic settlements here, with megalithic tombs and chambers clearly visible from some Portimao houses.

The new marina in Portimao has brought a whole new dimension to holidays in Portimao apartments. There is now a high-class area of restaurants and bars in which to watch the world going by. The marina is not only a fantastic place to eat and relax, but the ideal place from which to take to the sea, fishing, sailing or scuba diving too.

Christmas at the Villa do Vale

4 of 5
Isabel & Greg, Thank you so much for your lovely apartment, it was so homey, and very comfortable felt like home from home but with sunshine !! Even when I cooked christmas dinner you had all the essentials to do this The apartment was so near everything that you did not need a car and with bus stop outside so handy to go anywhere. Your kindness with the carrot cake, orange juice and gingerbread men went down very well. Would not hesitate to recommend your apartments to anyone Thanks again Berni & Tom

Oasis Parque - Algarve

4 of 5
This is a very spacious apartment which offers everything you need for a relaxing holiday. The apartment was clean and comfortable making it feel homely. There was the additional bonus of wifi and sky TV. Oasis Parque is similar to the American Country Club idea with superb facilities a two minute walk away from the apt. Outdoor swimming, tennis and beautiful indoor pool and jacuzzi . There is also a lovely bar and resteraunt offering very good food. There are another few places to eat and a supermarket within walking distance. We were not able to have a car but this would offer increased opportunities to visit other areas on this lovely coastline. That said we used taxis to visit for e.g. Alvor which is very close and very beautiful. We found this to be a relaxing holiday in a lovely area and very friendly. We would go back.
