The Algarve region
The Western Algarve is as an area of great charm and beauty, an unspoilt haven with inviting beaches set against dramatic cliffs and rugged coastlines, interspersed with traditional fishing villages.
The region remains a haven for international holiday makers, offering a winning combination of a fantastic climate, abundance of cultural life, superb bars and restaurants and world-class golf courses.
Located on the tip of Europe with the vast ocean of the Atlantic as its southern and western border, this enviable position gives this region possibly the most unpolluted climate in the European continent. Surfing and Sailing are both popular activities along this coast line.
Quinta da Fortaleza is a new development in a peaceful location within Costa Vicentina National Park, on an elevated site above Cabanas Velhas beach, the contemporary properties take advantage of their setting with sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean.
Encompassing one of Europe's most picturesque golf courses, Parque da Floresta Golf and Leisure Resort is a 5 minute drive away. Golfers will enjoy the challenging 18-hole course which winds its way through the resort. The Vigia Golf Academy boasts a state-of-the-art interactive video system and other onsite activities include floodlit tennis courts, championship bowling green and a children's club.
To the west is Salema, a picturesque fishing village with a wonderful beach and restaurants. One of the delights of spending time here is to watch the fisherman return from the Atlantic with their catch and then indulge in fresh fish within hours of being caught at the villages restaurants overlooking the beach.
To the east Burgau has absorbed the advance of tourism yet still retains a strong character which remains relatively un-spoilt due to its location in a small cove bound by steep cliffs. The locals still set out to sea in brightly painted boats in pursuit of squid, lobster and sardines as they did a hundred years ago. Nestled on the edge of a national park, the steep streets lead to a horseshoe shaped bay where there is a beach bar, several cafés, bars and restaurants. Historic Lagos is just 10 minutes away by car.
Slide and Splash water park and Zoomarine are about half an hour's drive away and the local Lagos Zoo is great for the little ones.
Horse riding, dolphin watching and grotto trips, jeep safaris and water-based sports can also be arranged.
