The Algarve region
The West Algarve has much to offer, wonderful all year sunshine , breathtakingly beautiful coastline and unspoilt countryside, a friendly atmosphere and home to some of the finest, competitive and recreational facilities in Europe. Most famously a golfers paradise – with over 25 golf courses to choose from many internationally recognised (Penina Golf, Morgado Golf, Boavista Golf, and the resorts at Parque da Floresta and Alto Golf and Country Club) - satisfaction is guaranteed.
Water sports enthusiasts are also spoiled for choice as are lovers of good living as restaurants, bars and clubs abound. In Western Algarve you can dine on superb fresh fish, seafood, charcoal-grilled meats, spicy chicken piri piri, freshly baked bread and sensational fruit.
There are inland Nature trails, dolphin spotting, bird sanctuaries and theme parks for children of all ages.
The village of Alvor, is a bustling fishing village with an ancient harbour still retaining its unsophisticated appeal which faces a natural lagoon opening onto the sea.
The 16th Century Parish Church was rebuilt after the earthquake of 1755 and still has a prime example in its main doorway of the great craftsmanship of the Manueline era of architecture.
However Alvor is perhaps best known for its wide beach, almost 15 kilometres of golden sand, popular with families because of its good, safe surf. There are beach restaurants available and wind surfers and sailing boats for hire in season. At the eastern end is the Praia de Três Irmãos "beach of the three brothers" - which is a more intimate, sandy cove, particularly good for snorkelling, with underwater grottos and rock formations to explore.
The bustling harbour town of Portimao situated 6 km away is the Algarve’s main commercial centre having a reputation as the place to buy leather goods such as shoes and handbags. Portimão was once a hub of the fish canning industry. What remains today is grilled sardines on the quayside. The restaurants need no advertising just follow the delicious smell.
The new racetrack "Autódromo International do Algarve " which will host many of the international motorsporting events, such as Touring Car Championship, Superbike Championship, & GP International rounds, to name but a few is also only 15 mins drive from this villa.
