The Algarve region
With a temperate climate and 300 days of sunshine a year the Western Algarve is a perfect holiday destination. It has plenty of fantastic blue flag beaches, quaint fishing villages and breathtaking mountainous scenery. There are numerous activities to be enjoyed by the whole family including theme parks, hiking, boat trips, water sports and the famous Algarve golf courses.
There are plenty of destinations to explore in this south westerly tip of Europe. These range from the windswept coastal beauty of Sagres to the mountain market town of Monchique or the Moorish town of Silves to historical and bustling Lagos, there really is something for everyone.
Alvor is 75kms from Faro airport which is drive of approximately 40 minutes. It is set just 5kms from the busier holiday resort of Praia Da Rocha and 8kms from Lagos. The modern town of Portimao is also only 8kms away and worth a trip to wander around the new 'Aqua' shopping centre.
The small fishing village of Alvor has a unique charm and quaintness which draws holidaymakers back to it time after time. It boast a beautiful 4 1/2 mile stretch of sandy beach, with secluded coves surrounded by dramatic cliffs at one end and raised wooden walkways running the length of a nature reserve (the perfect place for spotting birds) at the other. The picturesque waterfront area lined with colourful fishing boats, palm trees and bars, is great for a stroll and an al fresco drink in the sun. The aroma of freshly barbequed fish in Alvor's harbour will undoubtedly tempt you into one of the many fantastic fish and seafood restaurants - you definitely have to try the sardines that Portugal is so famous for! If you fancy a change of cuisine, Alvor town's maze of traditional houses and cobbled streets contain a variety of other excellent places to eat. There is also a choice of plenty of friendly bars to enjoy. Whether you fancy a chilled out chat while sipping a mojito, a pint in front of the footie or a bit of dance to live music there will be a place for you! You could also spend a bit of time wandering around the traditional village, maybe visiting the picturesque 16th century church or exploring the numerous shops stocking everything from beautiful Portuguese pottery to unbelievably cheap wine.
In and around Alvor there are plenty of activities for all the family to enjoy ranging from water sports, boat trips, tennis and horse riding to visits to Slide and Splash, Aqualand, Zoo Marine and other water and theme parks. There are plenty of opportunities to play golf in the Algarve sunshine with the local Alto Golf Club just a 15 minute drive away and a further 12 courses, including the Penina Championship Golf Course, within a 30 minute drive. There is also a new racetrack 'Autodromo Internacional do Algarve' just a 20 minute drive from Alvor which will host many international motorsport events, including Touring Car Championship, Superbike Championship and GP international rounds.
Alvor really is the perfect place for couples and families to enjoy a relaxing holiday and we are sure you will enjoy it's magical charm as much as we do.
