Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in Praia da Rocha, Portugal your home away from home

Praia da Rocha is the Algarve’s second largest holiday resort, located right on the coast in the Western Algarve, Portugal. There are some wonderful private apartments to rent in Praia da Rocha, located within a short walk of the famous 2km long Praia da Rocha Beach and with all the luxury you deserve on your well earned break. One thing is for sure; if you rent a Praia da Rocha villa once, you will be sorely tempted to keep returning year after year, like so many families do.

Things to do on holiday in Praia da Rocha, Portugal

Anyone trying to find out what Praia da Rocha in Portugal is like can take heart from the fact that there are very few people who only visit a Praia da Rocha apartment once! There is a huge amount to enjoy from a Praia da Rocha villa or self catering apartment on Praia da Rocha beach, from the activities of the beach to the plentiful family attractions which adorn the surrounding area. There are two water parks, a zoo and two famous marine-life parks where you can watch displays and even swim with dolphins. Family holidays are wonderfully catered for from a Praia da Rocha villa, with activities suitable for all ages and interests.

Of course, it is the beach which really creates the demand for private apartments to rent in Praia da Rocha, with over 2km of fine, golden sand backed by the fantastic sandstone geological formations that give the resort its name. There are a number of excellent beach bars along the length of the beach, meaning that there are people relaxing by the sea from early in the morning until late into the evening every day during the summer. You can easily arrange a whole host of water sports from your Praia da Rocha villa, from windsurfing to scuba diving, banana boating to sailing.

There is some fantastic walking to be done in and around Praia da Rocha too. The coastal paths that stretch in either direction along the back of the beach are stunning, walking along the back of the varied cliffs overlooking the azure waters of the Atlantic. One of the more popular is the 20 minute stroll along the coast to Portimao, although if you would like to do some more serious hiking, the peaks of the Monchique Mountains are perfect for stretching your legs. You can also head into the hills on horse back or bicycle, and there are plenty of options for renting equipment/hirelings and local guides. Details on local stables and route maps are available from the Praia da Rocha tourist information centre.

As with much of the Algarve, there are plenty of top class golf courses surrounding the Praia da Rocha resort. As long as you have your handicap certificate with you, you should have no trouble arranging a tee off time from your self catering Praia da Rocha apartment. Details of local courses are available from the Praia da Rocha tourist information offices.

Weather in Praia da Rocha, Portugal

The Mediterranean climate of the Algarve is a real asset for anyone with a self catering apartment or villa in Praia da Rocha. During the summer months, temperatures average over 27?C, with daily peaks well into the mid 30’s from June until late September, meaning that you can happily stay on the beach until sunset, or eat your evening meal in shirt sleeves watching the sun disappear over the horizon. Even in winter, conditions are warmer and dryer than they are in the height of the British summer!

Travel to Praia da Rocha, Portugal

Faro International Airport (FAO) is less than an hour from a holiday rental villa in Praia da Rocha.

                                      Fantastic Appartment very clean

                                      5 of 5
                                      The apartment is very spacious and spotlessly clean and is suitable for a group/family of up to 5 people. In a nice, quiet and peaceful location. The TV and WiFi service included ensured that we kept in touch with the outside world. Spacious car parking also available. Its only about a 5 min walk to the beach and a 3 min walk to the main strip where there is a great selection of restaurants, pubs shops and amenities. George was very helpful during the booking process and always available to offer guidance on places to visit, eating recommendations and always available to answer any questions. Overall a great holiday. Fantastic accommodation and highly recommended. We will be back.

                                      Great apartment, 5 min walk to amazing Vau Beach

                                      5 of 5
                                      Absolute beautiful apartment. Tastefully decorated, quiet, clean and comfortable! A home away from home with everything you need. The nearby Vau beach is stunning and so easy to access with our children. All the necessities are near and everything is a short drive away (e.g. big grocery stores, other spectacular beaches, shopping etc). The owner and property manager were so helpful and responsive. The owner gave us great tips on where to go to take full advantage of our our stay in the Algarve! Local tour guides, with lots of experience. Total bonus! Thank you so much. Highly recommend and plan to stay here again.

                                      Lovely Apartment

                                      4 of 5
                                      I have to say this apartment really is a home away from home you couldnt ask for better. When we arrived the apartment was spotless and so spacious with 3 big bedrooms there isnt any aircon but plenty of fans that help keep you cool. The balcony terrace is huge with 4 sun loungers. its so close to the strip and beach but yet far enough away so the noise at night wont bother you. I would highly recommend this apartment and Martina (the owner) was lovely to deal with and the little extra touches on your arrival really goes above and beyond as I have a boy and a girl and the beds were made up with blue sheets and pink sheets also it was my little girls birthday while we were away and when we arrived some balloons, candles and pink table cloth were left for us which was a lovely gesture.
