The Algarve region

The Algarve enjoys a mild climate most of the year. The gentle sea breeze stops it getting too humid in summer and in winter it's mild and sunny most of the time. There are many days in winter when it is warm enough to play golf or partake in other sports with just t-shirt and shorts on. A short journey inland from Alvor brings you to a more traditional Algarve with historic Silves and the Sierra beyond with the its delightful Monchique - an excellent retreat in the heat of high summer! Alvor is an all year round destination for golf enthusiasts. Alvor offers a choice of beaches and a harbour and estuary with a protected wildlife area, boat trips, canoe hire and dolphin spotting. Livelier night life is available at Praia da Rocha for the more energetic and young at heart. For the younger members of the family there are many attractions including Zoo Marine, Aqualand, Slide and Splash etc. There is also some great shopping in nearby Portimão namely Aqua shopping centre. The landscape is amazingly diverse from the west coast (towering cliffs and huge ocean breakers - surfer's paradise!) through the central Algarve with gentler beaches and estuaries with marinas – Lagos, Praia da Rocha, Albufeira and Vila Moura.


Alvor is a classic old fishing village. Narrow cobbled streets lead down to a huge beautiful beach and harbor with a promenade.

The streets are full of shops restaurants, cafes and bars with very child friendly service and stay open until late so that you will have plenty of everything for the family to enjoy. Alvor beach caters for all water sports and has numerous beach side restaurants. There is a daily market for food, and a bustling gypsy street market every 2nd Tuesday, There is also a skydiving centre nearby. There are boat trips also from Alvor harbour, a wide range of different trips from fishing to dolphin watching. Vila Marachique is NEXT TO ALTO GOLF, CLOSE TO PENINHA GOLF and within easy drive to many other golf courses. Good deals for golf packages are easily found on the Internet. There are 2 very good restaurants a few mins. walk from Vila Marachique. Alvor has its own small wildlife reserve with protected unspoilt beaches and dunes that form a safe harbour at the entrance to the estuary. Boat trips, canoe hire and dolphin watching trip are available at the harbour area.

"brillant 2 bed villa all mod cons like home from home ."

Totally loved everything about villa marachique the 2 bed villa had everything you needed to enjoy self catering holiday.The grounds were well kept and the swimming pool was one of the best pools my 3 children have been in.The pool bar had a very good menu and very reasonable.The walk in to alvor was about 20 mins were their were loads of restaurant taxi back cost 4euro.Big red restaurant is just across the road and they have the best steaks in alvor. Just up the road is smiles bar where they have lovley snack menu at a great price and free wifi. couldn't of had a better holiday totally enjoyed the villa and loved the balcony.If I had to mark villa marachique out of 10 I would score them 11 i would recommend them to all my friends and family and if we are going to alvor next year we would have the perfect place to stay .

"Wonderful place to relax and appreciate the beauty of Alvor"

It's our third time in this spacious, cosy, spotless and well equipped apartment. It has everything you need for your holidays on the beach/swimming pool. The children love the pool and the playground. We love the drinks and snacks at the bar, the snooker table or to lie down, read a book under a palm tree. The balcony has a nice view to the garden and pool and an hammock for you to rest.
To walk to the centre of the village/beach it takes about 15 minutes, nothing you can't do when you are on holidays.The beaches "3 irmãos" or "restinga" have lots of water sports, nice restaurants and other aminities. If you want some more diversion and feel the night life take a taxi to Portimão (5 minutes). I really recommend this apartment to couples with young children, teenagers or even to 2 couples as it has two independant bedrooms and two bathrooms.
