The Algarve / Central Algarve region
Throughout the Algarve, old traditions mingle with more cosmopolitan ways of life in a landscape of outstanding natural beauty. A land of contrasts, of sheer cliffs and rolling hills and beautiful beaches. There are vast stretches of fine golden sand, extensive dunes and sandy coves backed by spectacular cliffs and rock formations all along the Algarve coast. The Algarve has much to offer the discerning traveller and there is sure to be an Algarve holiday villa to suit your particular tastes and holiday plans.
For those looking for activity holidays, the Algarve is one of Europe’s premier golfing destinations whilst the tennis schools offer fantastic facilities. Water sports are second to none with waterskiing, scuba-diving, big game fishing and dolphin spotting trips available at most beach resorts.
Accommodation ranges from large luxury holiday villas in Vale do Lobo, complete with private pools to smart apartments and townhouses and more modest, rustic cottages. There is something to suit everyone's tastes and needs whether you prefer to be close to the beach, in luxury golf resorts or nestled in rolling countryside or traditional villages.
Getting around the Algarve is relatively easy with an excellent road system following the coast and, for those who do not have a car, public transport is available. With everything so accessible, even the villas some distance inland can be just a few minutes’ drive from the nearest towns and beaches.
Portugal is famous for its port and also produces excellent wine which is not often found beyond its shores. There is a wonderful selection of cosmopolitan restaurants, more modest eateries and bustling cafes offering mouth-watering local dishes, fresh fish, and spicy piri-piri, along with flavours and cuisine from around the world. Holiday makers considering renting a villa in the Algarve are assured that there is truly something for everyone.
The Albufeira / Guia area
Located on the outskirts of the typical small town of Guia, this is a lovely place for an Algarve holiday. Here you can relax and enjoy your private pool or explore the local area and the fantastic beaches by day, then walk to a selection of restaurants in the evening. Our villas are in the Quinta dos Alamos community which is just one kilometre from the town centre and its famous Algarvian restaurants, one of which is where the Portuguese dish of chicken piri piri was created. There are also superb seafood and grill restaurants, plus an authentic local bar in the square.
Although it's 6 kilometres from the coast you have a fantastic selection of beautiful sandy coves within a 10 minute drive, all have beautiful golden sand and impressive rock formations, sculpted by the sea with rock stacks, caves and rock pools. Gale beach is the closest and has two restaurants that look out over the sands so that parents can watch their children play on the beach between courses. Evaristo is a beautiful cove with an impressive and stylish fish restaurant and the coves at Coelho and Sao Raphael are also well worth a visit.
Just to the west of Gale is Salgadas beach, which has a vast stretch of sand and an impressive golf course to the rear. Elsewhere, golf courses are plentiful, with the five celebrated courses at Vilamoura within easy reach by car and over ten courses within a half hour's drive.
To the east of Guia is the famous resort of Albufeira, once a pretty fishing village, it is now a large resort taking advantage of the impressive beaches along its stretch of coastline. Although it can get very busy there is excellent shopping, bustling squares, markets and a few very good restaurants, some perched on the cliff tops with fantastic views over the beach and sea.
Within a few kilometres from our villas in Guia is the Algarve Shopping Mall, with a huge choice of shops, a food court, supermarket and multi-screen cinema, where movies are shown in their original language - mostly English. Across the main road there's a branch of Makro, take your membership card if you have one, for access to the superstore. Zoomarine Aquatic Park is a theme park with rides and various attractions with an aquatic theme. There's also a dolphin interaction programme where you can swim with the dolphins - this needs to be pre-booked. Several water parks are also within easy reach for a day of thrilling slides and fun.
