The Algarve / West Algarve region
Algarve was known as the garden of Portugal, the range of hills and Monchique mountain protect it from the north and keep the temperature a few degrees warmer than the rest of Portugal. The main crop was olives, figs and almonds. Ferragudo, the pretty village close to the marina was settled in Roman times and then later by the Moors.
Its rose red stone castle which dominates the view from the terrace across the harbour is privately owned to this day, Portimão was established within fortress walls in the 17th century and became famous for its 21 sardine factories.
Due to diminishing shoals the fishing fleets are gone and the factories are now closed, one of them, La Rose, is an interesting museum with films about the sardine industry that perished not so long ago.
The Portimao / Praia da Rocha area
Praia da Rocha is a very old resort. A watering place at the turn of the century where gentle folk came for to take famous 'Aires das Rochas'. Such people required entertainment and a casino was built, with minstrel gallery and ballroom. Soon villas appeared along the cliff-top and eventually a hotel. The legendary 'Hotel Viola' where spies and secret agents met to plot.
The old Fortaleza which used to defend the harbour houses a restaurant and cafés. The beach has been widened when sand was pumped from the harbour to make the ferry-port and there is a boardwalk for the convenience of strollers. Praia da Rocha now has every amenity for tourist of every age group. There are Folklore Festivals, Film Festivals and Music Festivals. Speedboat races and sailing regattas.
You can go Big Game Filshing, Dolphin Watching or sail up the river to Silves. All from the Marina below the villa. For the night-lifers there are bars, discos, casinos, dining and dancing, ice-skating and bowling and if I have missed something you will find it.

We had a lovely stay at villa madrigal. The villa was ideally situated for ease of access to all local amenities. It was the perfect place for the relaxing holiday we were hoping for and we had everything we needed to hand. We would recommend this villa and would consider returning in the future. BJ was very helpful prior, during and following our holiday which we really appreciated.
