The Algarve region
The Algarve, in the south of Portugal, has a lovely sunny climate, and through October to February the sun can be shining. At Christmas and New Year there is also plenty to do with local festivals and fireworks and concerts on the beach. It is a great place for a holiday any time of the year. The beaches are lovely, with golden sand and many have coastline walks, lots of caves and rocks to explore, most now have bars and restaurants.
There are some of the best golf courses in Europe in the Algarve. Locally there is Salgardos golf and Villamora is about 20 minutes away with a huge choice of golf courses.
There are some lovely hidden towns to explore as you drive inland into the mountains, there is also the Roman town of Silves 20 minutes away, with lts of historic features to explore. Sagres is the most southern town in Europe and has a stunning coastal view point.
The apartment is located in Vale de Parra, a small quiet village on the main road from Albufeira towards Amarco de Perra, it has great local restaurants both in the village and on the nearby beaches. Bars, shops, car hire, bank, chemist, mini markets are all a couple of minutes walk away.
The beaches, within a couple of km are some of the Algarve´s best - the nearest beach Gale is 1.2 km away the bus stop across the road travels to Gale beach and back regularly, for just a couple of euro. The separate coves of Castello, Evaristo, Sao Rafael ,Coelho, and Lourenco are a must to visit at any time of the year, and in high season you can still find these uncrowded, unlike some of the busier beaches around Albufeira, they have good beach bars and restaurants, and are within 5 or 10 minute drive/ taxi from the apartment.
