The Algarve region
One of the many reasons we love it is because it receives more sun than any other part of main land Europe and has a climate similar to the Mediterranean. It is famous for its beautiful beaches, amazing countryside, vibrant nightlife, splendid golf courses, excellent hostelries, culture and popular customs, and the friendly charm and welcome of its people.
The wonderful climate, warm and sunny all year round, gives visitors the opportunity to enjoy a wide variety of sport, cultural and leisure activities. The lively fishing town of Albufeira could not be better located placed perfectly and centrally, within easy reach of Faro (airport), the high mountains of Monchique and the historic castle town of Silves.
There are plenty of beaches close by. One of our favourites is Santa Eulalia beach which is a 5 minute drive or a 15 minute walk. There is the main beach in Albufeira which is a 15 minute walk also. On the long stretch of beach below the central square, accessed through a tunnel, craggy fishermen mend their nets unperturbed by the sunbathers around them.
Being centrally located, Parque da Corcovada is a convenient base for golfers. The five Vilamoura courses are only 15 minutes drive away. Balaia, Salgados and Pine Cliffs a mere 5 minutes drive. Other great golf courses like Quinta do Lago, S. Lorenzo and Vale do Lobo or Vila Sol are just an easy half-hour drive away.
