Our first visit to the Algarve was in 1998 when some of the main roads were still dirt roads.
The area reminded us of Africa, where we are from, so we made the Algarve our main holiday destination and we have returned every year, some years on multiple occasions visiting various parts of the Algarve.
We have stylish and child-friendly luxury holiday rental apartments privately owned at the Sheraton Pine Cliffs resort or our country retreat villas in the Algarve. There is something for every one from a one bedroom apartment on the beach sleeping 4 to an upmarket luxury country villa in Silves that is spacious enough to accommodate two or three families comfortably.
