The Algarve / Central Algarve region
The Algarve is the southernmost region of Portugal.
The temperature will generally fluctuate between 15º C in winter and 31ºC in summer.
With an average of 300 days of sun a year, it is pretty certain that you will get good weather during your holiday.
The Algarve is perhaps most famous for the beauty and variety of its beaches.
The Atlantic shoreline is about 200 km long and comprises wildlife preservation areas, quiet coves, dramatic red-rock cliffs and caves and many sandy beaches of all shapes and sizes. The Algarve has so many different beaches that it would be difficult to inform you of all them.
But the Algarve is more than sand and Sun, there is a whole new life, and way of life, to discover.

The town of São Bras de Alportel is a mixture of old and new, you can find the traditional Algarvian house all painted white with the small windows next to a recent house. In the old part of town you will find the cobbled streets criss-crossing each other, but, as you move away from the old part of town you find that all this fades away and the town starts to look more modern.

We all were pleased to stay in Casa da Amendoeira. Very nice house, in a nice place quiet with beautifull villages. Was very nice to wake up every morning ant took our breakfast outside near the pool, with the wonderfull views of the sea. Very well equiped, all was perfect, just one thing should be review..as this villa can be rent from people all over the world in our point of view the channels TV should not be only in English, not everybody understands the language so well to see them, as well if is a family with kids that always like to watch TV it would be boring for them to stay there and could not understand anything they were saying. Is the only thing we think they should review and maybe put Cable TV . Dispite that, were a very pleaseant holidays in a very pleaseant house!
