About this location

The Algarve region

The Algarve is one of the world's most attractive holiday destinations. It is not over-developed and the coastline with its miles of golden beaches, dunes and coves enclosed by rocks and cliffs remains completely unspoiled. The region is brightly decorated with colorful towns and villages each with their own poplars or olives, oranges, lemons and blossom and fragrant pines groves.

Towards the hills there are terraces dotted with almond, carob and fig plantations. The Moors left a considerable legacy, which can still be seen today in the medinas, fortresses and mosques they left behind as well as being reflected in the traditional Algarvian architecture and the way of life of the people.

The climate is one of the healthiest and most pleasant in the world, comparable with California.

There are a number of attractions close by:

• Zoo-Marine 10 min drive.

• Slide and Splash Water Park, Aqua Land 10 min drive.

• Albufeira 15 min drive.

• Vilamoura 20 minutes drive.

• Silves and its red fortress, historical town, 10 minutes drive.

• Carvoeiro 15 minutes drive.

• Lagos, historical town, with fabulous shops, market, bars, restaurants and the Marina is approx. 30 minutes by car.

• Portimao and its old town and port, 15km?• Monchique Mountain Spa and thermal waters

• Cape of St Vincent with its imposing light-house (most southerly spot in Europe)

• Sagres, the most south westerly point in Europe, is approx. 50 minutes by car and then make your way up to the deserted sandy beaches along the west coast.

• Lisbon. Look out for 'Fado' music bars.

• Algarve Shopping in Guia with its twenty-two restaurants, a myriad of designer shops, bowling alley and multi screen cinema only 10 minutes away.

• Porches - a beautiful old village full of history and stunning local beaches, restaurants and bars. Known for pottery and ceramics you can visit the factories of artist's shops where you can purchase some of the attractive bright blue, green and turquoise pottery.

A short stroll away is the village and its two blue flag beaches (the best in Algarve) often visited by the rich and famous. One offering a top class restaurant and water sports and one set inside a protected cove offering beauty and calm. You can also hire boats and there is also a jeep safari.

Armacao de Pera

Armação de Pêra is a picturesque fishing village with cobbled streets, old church, good restaurants and night-life. And the longest beach in the Algarve! Take a walk over the beach and come in at the marshes: a bird-watcher's paradise. There are wooden walkways over this eerie but beautiful and protected landscape. The tourist train (Comboio túristico) has 6 stops around Armação de Pêra and starts from the tourist information office near the old fort.

Armação de Pêra was named after the inland region of Pêra in Portugal, where the fishermen came down from originally and armação, which was a specially adapted boat, with a combined netting system, designed by the Moors.

Today Armação de Pêra is a lively high-rise Algarve resort, which is very popular with Portuguese holidaymakers in the summer. It has everything you need for a lovely holiday - fantastic beach, shops, supermarkets, restaurants and bars.

You are a 10-15 minute drive from many fine golf courses, including Salgados, the championship courses of Pestana Vale da Pinta, Gramacho, Vale de Milho and Silves.
