Washed in the south and west by the Atlantic and protected in the north by the mountain ranges, the area benefits from a mild climate characteristic of the Mediterranean with average temperatures of 24ºC in the summer and 15ºC in the winter. Transport is easy, the Algarve has an excellent international airport in Faro with further transport links: car hire, taxi, train and bus to holiday destinations within Portugal. If you want more than a beach holiday, there are endless possibilities for sports such as horse riding, walking, diving, tennis, kite surfing and golf. The Algarve also has a valuable and long history and wherever you look you will see evidence of centuries of past inhabitants, from castles, fortresses to beautiful palaces. Inhabited since pre-historic times and settled by the Romans and the Greeks and conquered by the Moors.
