The Algarve region
The Algarve is a beautiful part of Portugal with plenty to do and see for those wanting an active holiday. It is also ideal for those seeking a total rest under blue skies in the sun. The 200 km long southern Algarve coastline is varied and offers a wide selection of sandy beaches and intimate coves dotted between attractive towns and fishing villages, while the west coast is wilder with crashing Atlantic waves providing excellent windsurfing from long golden beaches.
A trip to the historic lighthouse at Cape St Vincent, the most south westerly point in Europe, followed by a leisurely lunch at a beach restaurant, is a great way to spend a day. Also popular is a drive up into the forested mountains around Monchique to experience some local culture and cuisine, and to take in some magnificent scenery in the cooler mountain air. There are lovely walks both along the coast and inland, and many well-groomed golf courses to test all ability levels. Other readily available activities include water sports, tennis, horse riding, water parks and the famous Zoo Marine.
Markets abound, small and large, where you can stock up on fresh produce and browse at your leisure, that at Loule (which also has a gypsy market) on Saturday being the best known. Pottery and ceramics are a noteworthy regional craft. There really is something for everyone in this wonderful part of Portugal, but do spend some time enjoying the tranquillity of this lovely villa and relaxing by its private pool.
Carvoeiro is a traditional Portuguese fishing village that has developed into a popular holiday destination. It has lost little of its original charm, and has a small sandy beach backed by cafes and restaurants and surrounded by colourful sand and limestone cliffs. In and around Carvoeiro are some fine beaches, golf courses, restaurants and well-stocked supermarkets, and the welcoming locals will cater for your every need and help you to get the most out of your holiday.
Just a few km south of the Algarve motorway and only 45 minutes from Faro airport, Carvoeiro also lies conveniently close to the town and harbour of Portimao, an excellent shopping centre with attractive pedestrian precincts and riverside restaurants. The nearest two18 hole championship golf courses (Pinta and Gramacho) are only a 5 minutes drive from the villa.
