The Algarve region
The Algarve: sunshine breaks and relaxing holidays, golden beaches on the coast of calm sea waters, sun-kissed tourists relaxing and sampling the delights that this wonderful region of Portugal.
Everywhere you go along the coastline you are welcomed by the golden sands, the crystal clear waters, the clear blue skies and the white-washed walls of the buildings in the Algarve's old towns.
The Algarve's endless coastline includes some of the world's most beautiful beaches, but by venturing just a few miles inland, you can lose yourself in the heritage and history of the Algarve Including Silves, Sagres, Faro, the delights of the Lagos marina and the wonderful Monchique mountain area.
Holiday in Carvoeiro and you may find yourself hooked. Charismatic yet peaceful, small yet full of life – Carvoeiro is one of those resorts that just have it all. Oozing authentic Portuguese charm, this place can’t help but spellbind those who visit, and has people coming back time and time again. And once you’ve set foot here you’ll see why. Cut into half moon cliffs, the coastline is dramatically woven with intricate caves and golden beaches, the breathtaking landscape has been pretty much left how Mother Nature intended. Typical old-town narrow streets are scattered with alluring little shops and twist down to a pretty village square, where you can sample the endless wine lists - after all, you are in the wine-producing region of Lagoa. The square overlooks the shimmering shores, which gently slope out to the transparent sea, more often than not crammed full of colourful fishing boats. It’s fringed with bustling cafes and restaurants and is a prime spot to eat al fresco and drink in the views. And what a picture the coastline is. The dramatic ochre cliffs shelter numerous mystical grottoes and lead to a number of outstanding pristine beaches. Within walking distance is Algar Seco, with its theatrical rock formations and Carvalho cove, where half the fun is navigating your way through a labyrinth of tunnels. Add to all this animated bars, restaurants serving inviting international and local dishes and excellent activities such as golf and horse riding - and you can’t go wrong in this relaxed holiday haven.The aqua park zoo marine has free buses that leave from different points through out Carvoeiro and takes you to the park where you can interact with the dolphins or just use the water slides. The beach also lets you watch the sun go down at the end of the day ending that perfect evening. There are 3 golf courses in Carvoeiro area. The village has restaurants with beautiful court yards with trees of oranges and lemons and limes adding to that romantic holiday. There are shops inside court yards and gardens offering all the beach toys the kids need. The village is truly a beautiful place to visit and you can spend days eating in different cafes ,bars and restaurants without getting bored or just walking along the beach enjoying the excellent sea food on offer. The area gives both families and couples that holiday you really are looking forward to .There is an unspoilt fishing village called Ferragudo where you can sample the excellent food fresh from the sea or traditional l meat dishes or go fishing for yourself and cook your own evening meal. The town of Lagoa is also close by and is the home of the famous Arab poet Ibn Ammar also the beautiful village of porches is only minutes away and is famous for its ceramics and gardens.
A Little History
In the Algarve, your holidays will take on a historical flavour. All around the region, you will find the chance to discover some of the charms and secrets of Portugal's history, which time has not yet managed to erase. Spending your holidays in the Algarve also provides an opportunity for travelling in time, finding numerous testimonies to the different peoples and cultures that have come together throughout the history of this region. From traces of the Roman presence to evidence of the long legacy of Muslim times, from the Christian reconquest to the epic period of the Portuguese discoveries, you will find all kinds of reasons for rediscovering the signs of a quite distinctive historical past. The evidence of the human settlement of the Algarve dates back to time immemorial. Examples of this presence are to be found in the Neolithic remains from many thousands of years ago and the more recent, but no less interesting, Roman archaeological sites, now open to visitors. Any trip into the region's past and its valuable history should also include a visit to the various archaeological museums, displaying a vast heritage that lies waiting to be discovered. As the home to a range of ancient civilisations, the Algarve was also visited by many other peoples, inevitably brought to the region by the immense sea that bathes its shores. More than five centuries of Moorish influences left their indelible imprint upon the region, beginning with its actual name: Al-Gharb, meaning The West. The long Moorish occupation of the territory, which lasted from the 8th to the 13th century, is still to be noted in the names of the towns and villages, in the region's agriculture, in the architecture of the monuments, the lacework patterns of the balconies, roof terraces and chimneys, or the whitewashed houses still to be seen in many Algarve villages. At that time, Silves was the central focus of the region because of its strategic geographical location.
In the mid-13th century, the Algarve was the last part of Portugal to be reconquered from Muslim rule. After a long period of forward pushes and backward retreats, the Christian reconquest enjoyed the valuable collaboration of the Knights of the Order of St. James, led by Dom Paio Peres Correia. The result was that, in the reign of Dom Afonso III, the Arab presence in the Algarve was brought to an end and the region was joined to the kingdom of Portugal. Besides Silves, the cities of Tavira and Faro, the present-day capital of the Algarve, were definitively conquered from the Moors. This marked the foundation of the Kingdom of Portugal and the Algarves. Later, in the early 15th century, the beginning of the Portuguese maritime expansion brought a new lease of life to the Algarve and its people. Since then, Lagos and Sagres have remained forever linked to Prince Henry the Navigator and the Portuguese Discoveries. Even today, at the headland known as the Ponta de Sagres, a giant stone finger can be seen pointing towards the Atlantic Ocean in a clear allusion to the courage of the Algarve navigators, such as Gil Eanes, who set sail across the seas in search of new worlds to give to the world. Many marks of this remote past, which is still very much present in the soul of the Algarve's inhabitants, are to be found scattered all around the region. Paying a visit to Aljezur, Lagos, Silves, Faro, Tavira, Castro Marim and Alcoutim means discovering the grandeur of Portuguese history, its people and their traditions, in each museum, church, fort and castle of the region.

"A great apartment adeally located in the centre of Carvoeiro."
We stayed at this apartment in July 2012 , with our three children aged 10,7,7 and found it to be excellent.The apartment was spotlessly clean and perfectly sized for our needs.On our arrival we met Craig the manager, who had already arranged the 'fold away bed' inbetween the twin beds, for our 10 year old son, which was no problem for the duration of our stay.Craig gave us his mobile number for any problems we might have (which we didn't require). The kitchen, again, was clean and well equipped ,however for the majority of evenings we dined out at the many great restaurants, literally round the corner.The pool and beach were great and in the late evenings ,with the kids asleep,we sat on the quiet balcony with a nice Merlot. All in all , yes , well recommended and we would stay here again.
