The Algarve / West Algarve region
West Algarve tends to be very hot and dry during the summer months and cooler from October through to March.
These are the months with higher rain fall, but it allows the beautiful region to become very lush during the spring months. Vilarinha is set amidst a Nature Reserve which is a conservation area and is heavily protected from development.
The Carrapateira / Vilarinha area
This is an ideal spot for nature lovers. With rolling hillsides and rivers on your doorstep and just 3 -4 km down a country track to the sand dunes surrounding a wonderful lagoon & other beautiful beaches. 2 Good surfing schools & numerous popular surfing beaches are within easy reach as well as deserted coves.
Vilarinha is wonderful for walkers, has fantastic bird life & beautiful & I’m told unique flowers.
The local village of Carapeteria offers shops, restaurants, cafes, bars and a market, other nearby towns and villages offer more lovely restaurants and shopping too.
