The Algarve / West Algarve region
Throughout the Algarve, old traditions mingle with more cosmopolitan ways of life in a landscape of outstanding natural beauty. A land of contrasts, of sheer cliffs and rolling hills and beautiful beaches. There are vast stretches of fine golden sand, extensive dunes and sandy coves backed by spectacular cliffs and rock formations all along the Algarve coast. The Algarve has much to offer the discerning traveller and there is sure to be an Algarve holiday villa to suit your particular tastes and holiday plans.
For those looking for activity holidays, the Algarve is one of Europe’s premier golfing destinations whilst the tennis schools offer fantastic facilities. Water sports are second to none with waterskiing, scuba-diving, big game fishing and dolphin spotting trips available at most beach resorts.
Accommodation ranges from large luxury holiday villas in Vale do Lobo, complete with private pools to smart apartments and townhouses and more modest, rustic cottages. There is something to suit everyone's tastes and needs whether you prefer to be close to the beach, in luxury golf resorts or nestled in rolling countryside or traditional villages.
Getting around the Algarve is relatively easy with an excellent road system following the coast and, for those who do not have a car, public transport is available. With everything so accessible, even the villas some distance inland can be just a few minutes’ drive from the nearest towns and beaches.
Portugal is famous for its port and also produces excellent wine which is not often found beyond its shores. There is a wonderful selection of cosmopolitan restaurants, more modest eateries and bustling cafes offering mouth-watering local dishes, fresh fish, and spicy piri-piri, along with flavours and cuisine from around the world. Holiday makers considering renting a villa in the Algarve are assured that there is truly something for everyone.
