The Algarve region
The Algarve stretches for approx.155km.from the river Guadiana on the Spanish border to the Cabo de Sao Vicente near Sagres in the west and is approx. 50km wide. The Algarve has preserved its own distinctive character and is very different in climate, culture and scenery to the rest of Portugal.
Due to its mild climate in winter and many days of sunshine during the year, it has become a very sought after holiday region right throughout the year. Spend some relaxing time on the many beautiful beaches and enjoy some good food and wine in the many excellent restaurants. Take a boat trip along the coast and enjoy a swim and BBQ lunch. Horse riding, tennis, sailing are just a few of the many activities for you to enjoy
Praia da Luz
Praia da Luz is a beautiful small town with beach, small shops, bars and restaurants. Montinhos da Luz is a small village just one kilometer from the centre of Luz up along the Burgau coastal road and for those wanting to stretch their legs, a walk down hill into the town would take about fifteen minutes, although this would take a little longer going back up the hill.
The Bapista Supermarket in Luz will deliver free of charge and you can phone or email in your order. This is a great service.
Another great addition to the area is the Formula One/Motor Cycle circuit in Portimao with all the usual facilities of a famous organisation. The inaugarate meeting taking place in November 2008 with the Motor Cycle event.
There are many festivals in the area, all of this information would be provided in a tourist type pack.

"Simply excellent!! A stunning property and an owner who cares."
Where to begin?
Booking the property was a simple process helped enormously by the owner, Marion, who responded to emails very quickly.
The property, Casa da Florenza, is based a couple of minutes drive out of Praia da Luz. It is a private self contained villa with pool within an area called Mintinhos da Luz.
The villa is a three large bedroomed all on one floor with each of the bedrooms opening up to the pool and bathing area of the garden. It is a beautiful way to wake up in the morning that's for sure!
A special note about the garden absolutely deserves a mention. Most rentals in the Algarve we have visited, and we've been to at least 25, have a garden area, but you're lucky to get a couple of flower pots and a bush...Casa da Florenza has a very well stocked and lovingly maintained floral array, which for the age of the property (7 years?) has been given some real consideration and effort.
Back to the villa. It really has everything you would need. Fully stocked kitchen with all utensils (even had a steel to sharpen the knives, it's a personal bug bare of mine...blunt knives and never had one in a rental before). Through the patio doors of the kitchen leads to a fabulous BBQ area, fully covered, but al fresco dining, with a six seater table and chairs, trust me, you will spend most of your time here, it's a great spot.
The living room just off the kitchen has everything you will need and things you didn't think you would. UK sat tv, dvd/music player, very comfy, excellent quality furnishings and sofas. It also has a very cool surround sound system, it turns out this allows you to play the same music/radio / dvd sounds throughout the entire property. It was actually a really great feature.
The bedrooms were all a good size with more than enough wardrobe space for clothes etc. Two doubles and a twin. The beds themselves were ultra comfortable (memory foam?) or something similar but again quality over economy at this property. Although there is no air con, each room has a powerful fan which does the job I suspect, it was very hot when we visited but the house stayed nice and cool so didn't need them.
The swimming pool is a real hit for all the family, my 5 year old would have spent the entire time in it if she could. Although not heated it gets the sun all day long and is very refreshing in the summer heat. Also the salt water as opposed chlorine was a real plus, I had no idea how different was. No horrible taste, no bleached clothes, no stinging eyes and no drying of the skin as normal pools do.
To give you an idea about how much we enjoyed our stay here, it is the only rental property my wife has liked enough to want to return to. Coming from her, that is praise indeed ;-) !!
A couple of notes:-
You will want a car, the western Algarve is the best bit of the Algarve to go exploring.
Marion will send you a whole host of local information, one of which will be for the local supermarket delivery, we ordered stuff before we left and it was waiting on the doorstep when we arrived. It was a late arrival for us so was nice to have some stuff in before the big shop the next day. Having said that, there were some supplies in the villa when we arrived which was a lovely touch.
I know you will love Casa da Florenza....enjoy!
