The Algarve region

The Algarve is the coastal region to the south of Portugal, and includes the towns of Faro, Portimao, Lagos, and Sagres. The region's administrative centre is the town of Faro, which has its own international airport.

The Algarve is a popular holiday destination, due to its stunning and varied coast with hundreds of kilometres of clean sandy beaches, crystal clear water and more than 300 days sunshine every year.

The coastline is famous for the picturesque limestone caves and grottoes, many of which, are accessible from beaches, and other can visited by boat. Praia da Marinha, which is just ten minutes from the villa was classified as one of the 100 most beautiful and well preserved beaches of the world.


Carvoeiro is a fishing village halfway along the Algarve coast, about 45 minutes from Faro Airport. Over the last 15 to 20 years, it has grown to be a sizeable and popular family holiday resort. However, it still retains it's charm, as the development has been sympathetically done, with no high-rise buildings to spoil the visual ambience. This cosmopolitan resort has a wide selection of restaurants and bars, boutiques, banks, chemist and local facilities.
