The Algarve / Central Algarve region
The Algarve enjoys a fantastic climate with summers cooled by Atlantic breezes and never a frost even in the middle of the winter which is always mercifully short. July to mid September is the high season but warm weather continues late into autumn which is agreat time to visit. Or visit in the spring which arrives in February/March to see wonderful displays of almond blossom and bright yellow mimosa. By March the orange blossom starts to fill the air with its fragrant aroma and wild flowers are everywhere from then on.
Fantastic golden beaches are a highlight amongst the many attractions the Algarve has to offer and local to the villa is Marinha beach which is often described as the most beautiful beach on the Algarve. Several long beaches are closeby for those that enjoy a leisurely stroll along the beach before enjoying a delicious lunch of local seafood washed down with reasonably priced Portuguese wines such as Vinho Verde which is very light and refreshing.
The mountains of Monchique provide a vivid contrast to the flat coastal plain and they also provide a welcome barrier to the cold weather from the north which then provides ideal conditions for the growing of citrus fruits and of course grapes from which the local wines are produced.
There are several waterparks for kids to enjoy as well as Zoomarine which is a great day out for the whole family.
The Porches area
Vale d'el Rei hotel is a short walk away from the villa and has a bar, restaurant and spa open to non residents. Porches and Lagoa are 5 minutes drive away and provide many restaurants and local craft outlets. A choice of 2 supermarkets are 10 minutes away as is the resort town of Carvoeiro with its varied selection of bars, restaurants and shops.
Portimao and Albufeira are a 20 minute drive from the villa and are the larger towns in the area. There are 2 water parks within 10 minutes drive. Algarve Shopping at Guia is a large retail centre and is only 15 minutes drive away and has over 100 shops majoring on fashion and lifestyle.
Monchique mountains are worth a visit being only some 30 minutes drive away and as well as being very picturesque give a different feel to the coastal areas with numerous small restaurants serving local specialities such as Black Pig and 'Feijoada', a thick bean stew with pork, bacon and sausage.
The villa manual contains details of many activities and places to visit should you wish to venture out from the villa and explore the Algarve. For example, Cliff Richard's vineyard, Adega do Cantor or Winery of the Singer is situated at Guia and provides interesting tours of the vineyard and production facility.
