The Algarve region
We feel privileged to live near one of the most beautiful beaches in the coastal Praia da Rocha stretch, just an easy walk down the road from the estate. Vau is beautiful and during low tide one can walk from beach to beach all the ay to the lighthouse at the river's edge, after Praia da Rocha.
Or choose the dramatic cliffs to admire the views..
There are over 70 beaches listed in the Algarve - typically, the south coast beaches, with calmer waves and gentle slopping shoreline, are very nice for wading, beach combing, safe swimming and sunbathing. The west coast is exciting, wild and excellent for surfing, body boarding, with dramatic cliffs and landscape.
Come here for a holiday out of season: a typical day in April is similar to an English summer day - with the garden looking its best.
Average day-time temps - June:18º, July:20º, August:20-28º, Sept:19-25º.
Alvor, the closest fishing village, has a large beach surrounded by expansive dunes which lead to a calm estuary. Here you can take kite-surfing lessons, or just observe the colorful kite surfers and take advantage of the extensive, new boardwalks that provide pleasant access to the dunes and beach.
The city of Silves, once the capital of the Algarve, with its Moorish Castle and medieval streets is 16km from Portimão.
Monchique mountain village,only 26km,is like traveling to another world- green forested landscapes and vistas of the coastal towns below. Stop at Monchique Spring Water Spa on the way up.
Easy sightseeing car trip: Sagres, Europe's most southwestern point.
Another idea: take a day trip to Lisbon or Seville, Spain!
If you have special interests, please let us know: nearly all activities are available and we can get information for you.
Portimão has several new shopping centres (Aqua, Retail), an old town centre with narrow streets and small shops, harbour and Sardine Museum).
Continente shopping center is 15 mins walk away (supermarket, ATM machines, shops, food court, cinema).
There are several water slide parks - a bus for 'Slide and Splash' stops just down the road from us.
Other activities available in the area: windsurfing, surf, para-gliding, skydiving, kite-surfing, horseback riding, cycling, hiking, dolphin watching, kayaking, jet skiing, diving, snorkeling, paragliding, coastal tours, sailing, fishing.
The Formula 1 race track is 20 min away.
The village of Alvor is like a quaint shopping center, but there are many others around (Retail Park, Aqua, Guia). It also has a large beach surrounded by expansive dunes which lead to a calm estuary. Here you can take kite-surfing lessons, or just observe the colorful kite surfers and take advantage of the extensive, new boardwalks that provide pleasant access to the dunes and beach.
