Make a holiday apartment in Raposeira your home away from home

Raposeira is one of the small localities that make up the small town of Vila do Bispo which, in turn, is part of the Algarve region of southern Portugal. Vila do Bispo is a town that marries the new with the old with a town centre characterised by medieval architecture and surrounded by more modern constructions. In addition to a plethora of attractions, visitors staying in Raposeira holiday homes will have many restaurants to choose from. They will also be close enough to the locality’s pristine beaches to be able to embark on basking sessions without any trouble. Staying in the Raposeira holiday homes is a great experience in itself as the villas and apartments are spacious, tastefully furnished and surrounded by immaculate yards. Some of these Raposeira holiday rentals have swimming pools and command spectacular views.

-Beaches: The uncrowded beaches of this part of Algarve provides a unique experience for visitors as they ingest amazing views. This part of Algarve is blessed with beautiful countryside which features stretches of unspoilt beaches, over 20 in total. Those looking for a secluded spot for a romantic beachside picnic will find plenty of these here.

-Water sports: There are a number of exciting activities those staying in Raposeira holiday homes will have access to. These include scuba diving courtesy of a number of diving centres which provide both lessons for beginners and the necessary gear. During the cooler season visitors will find perfect surfing conditions.

-Golf: Vila do Bispo is home to a lovely golf course in the name of Parque da Floresta. This picturesque facility is located on a hillside and is dotted with palm trees as well as a number of ponds and rivers. Both amateurs and more seasoned golfers will enjoy the bunkers and other challenges presented by the course.

-Historical attractions: History buffs won’t have to travel too far from their Raposeira holiday homes to behold the majesty of the 18th century church whose tower dominates the Vila do Bispo landscape. This edifice is simply a work of art; on the gilded altar is a captivating statue of Our Lady of the Conception and there are wonderfully decorated blue tiles that cover the central nave. The town itself, with its quaint, whitewashed houses and narrow streets, is a picture of medieval existence.

-Ancient fortress: For another history lesson visitors should visit the fortress that is said to have been built on the site of Saint Vicente’s grave. This structure houses a lighthouse that is an improvement on a beacon installed in 1515 to guide ships safely to shore. Also within the fortress is a monastery of Hieronymite Friars.

Weather in Raposeira

The weather in Raposeira is pretty much what one will get in most parts of Algarve; temperate, mostly sunny with mild winters. In winter temperatures average around 16°C and even then, apart from November, there is little precipitation. Of course most tourist will want to take advantage of them warm Algarvian summer and will hence book holiday homes in Raposeira between June and August. At this time of year temperatures average between 24 and 27°C and there is practically no rainfall.

Travel to Raposeira

As part of the Faro district, Raposeira is not far from the main international gateway into Algarve, the Faro Airport. On arrival at this airport visitors will have a less than half-hour trip by road to their Raposeira holiday rentals. This can be made by bus or by taxi. The latter will obviously be the more expensive and faster option.

Very comfortable and homely property

5 of 5
The house was well-equipped and comfortable, with a lovely view over Budens towards the coast. It was very quiet at the end of January when we were there. The owner was helpful and responded very quickly and honestly to all questions asked before we travelled. We'd very much recommend this property as a base for exploring the Algarve, particularly the less-developed Western end.

Lovely villa, very well supplied with all kitchen stuff. helpful hostess. Only grumble was the lack of a decent sofa in the downstairs room. Otherwise just what we wanted
