The Algarve region
The climate is one of the healthiest and most pleasant in the world, comparable with California.
There is sufficient seasonal variation to make the weather anything but boring, but winters are never too cold and the summers never too hot. The skies are predominantly blue all year round.
The Algarve has managed to retain its old world charm and traditional values even although it is an integral part of an ambitious, forward-looking nation, and tourism is its major economic activity. It is both a place to relax and do little or, if you prefer it, indulge your every active recreational interest, much of it outdoors in the clean, fresh air. The environment is much less spoilt than in other European countries. Growing popular awareness, backed by EU directives incorporated into Portuguese law, should ensure that it stays that way. The region is best known for its spectacular coastline, including scores of beautiful beaches, in the hinterland you will find vineyards, olive, almond, carob and fig trees, rising to rolling hills and the plains of the province of Alentejo beyond.

"Lovely apartment and complex"
The apartment was clean, well equipped, nicely furnished and very comfortable. The complex was also well kept (the pools were cleaned regularly) and there was bags parking (should you decide to hire a car). We used the airport transfers arranged by the owners/representative which was spot on. The representative was very friendly and helpful.
The apartment is approximately 10 mins walk from two very nice (child friendly) beaches. The supermarket was approx. 15 mins walk in the opposite direction. The town was a good 30 minute walk away (but as we discovered taxis are very reasonable). We ate at the fish restaurant on the beach and had a lovely meal whilst the sun set. There are other roadside restaurants near the supermarket but we did not try those as well as a couple of others near the beach, but not much else. The area surrounding the apartment is showing signs of recession with complexes which are half finished, which was sad to see.
We had a lovely, relaxing holiday. The children really enjoyed both the beach and the pools at the complex as well as the tennis court.
