Holiday villas in Portugal
A Villa Parade holiday in Portugal means staying in one of Europe's warmest countries. Regardless of where you are, you can expect summer temperatures to be around 30°C which means our range of coastal resorts are perfect for your stay. You can spend a day at the beach, taking a dip in the Atlantic whenever you feel like cooling off, or hire one of our many villas with swimming pools.
Along with its great climate, Portugal has an absolute wealth of beaches. With over 850 kilometres of coastline, there are a lot of Portuguese beaches to discover, but our villas in the Algarve put you within easy reach of some of the best. Portugal is one of the best locations in Europe for a beach holiday when you take a look at what the country can offer holiday makers. Whether you want to take advantage of the beach-bars for a drink, try your hand at some water sports (surfing, jet-skiing, kite-surfing and windsurfing are common activities) or just lounge on the sand, Portugal can provide the perfect place for you to do so.
If you'd rather spend all or part of your holiday delving into Portugal's rich history and culture, then many of our villas to rent in Algarve are close to plenty of cities and towns throughout the country which offer not only a rich variety of monuments, museums and other places of interest, but also some fantastic views; Portugal is an absolutely beautiful country with plenty to offer the sightseer. There are also large areas of the country that allow the local wildlife to roam undisturbed, and any nature-lovers are sure to enjoy a trip to Peneda-Gerês, the Duoro Valley and Serra da Estrela.
There's also Portugal's golf. Recent years have seen the country become a great destination for fans of the sport, with plenty of Portugal's golf courses ranking amongst the best in Europe. Not only are the courses great for experts and newcomers alike, but they're also designed to allow you to enjoy Portugal's wonderful landscape and views.
Another advantage of our villas in Portugal is being able to take advantage of some of Portugal's festivals, especially the Festival do Sudoeste in the south of the country, which takes advantage of the long stretches of beach and excellent landscapes to put on one of Portugal's most famous and well-received festivals.
If you've got an interest in fashion, then a stay in one of our holiday villas in Algarve can be a great chance to pick up some of Portugal's finest offerings. Fairs are the perfect place to pick up unique, handcrafted items, including purses, clothes, glass ornaments and more. There are also some great fashion houses, well-known inside Portugal, that you can find dedicated shops for, or in some of the fashion shops in towns and cities.
Food fans will find themselves spoilt for choice during a villa holiday in Portugal. Soup might not sound like an adventurous dish, but the Portuguese have turned soup-making into an art form. You'll find soups made of fish, sausages, chicken and all sorts of other ingredients, often as the first course to the rest of a delicious meal. The grilled chicken, sardines, veal and pork are all mainstays in Portuguese restaurants. There is also a huge selection of pork, beef, seafood and even wild boar dishes that can be found in restaurants throughout the country. During meals, Portugal's famous wines are the perfect accompaniment, and a port wine is a great post-meal drink.
We have villas in some of Portugal's best resorts, and whilst our villas in Algarve are always popular, there are plenty of other resorts that provide all you need for a great holiday. Why not stay in a villa in Albufeira and enjoy some of Portugal's best beaches? Or enjoy the golfing that villas in Vilamoura offer? Villas in Carvoeiro are a great choice for those looking for somewhere quieter, perfect for fans of beautiful scenery.
Albufeira is a lively and historic resort on a beautiful part of the Algarve's curving coastline. Seven gorgeous sandy beaches with dramatic rock formations stretch both east and west of the town - from the long beach of Praia D'Oura to a string of small coves carved out of honey-coloured cliffs. It's still a working fishing town, with boats and the mending of nets on the beach. And the new marina has confirmed Albufeira as a contemporary sailing centre. You can take sailing trips along the coast, try windsurfing and diving, or hire your own boat for a short spin.
The resort itself is as lively or relaxed as your holiday. There's a historic old town with steep narrow streets and whitewashed buildings - and a lively party strip for sparkling nights in bars and clubs. More relaxed evenings centre around waterfront restaurants - with Portuguese regional cooking, cafés and bars with lovely Algarve wines. There's lots of great shopping in Albufeira too - with traditional Portuguese design and weekly specialist markets. The Algarve is famous for its world-class golf courses and there are three great courses a short drive from Albufeira. The area around Albufeira is as beautiful as its beaches. There are lots of walks and inland the countryside has gorgeous views back out to sea.
