The Algarve region
The Algarve is known for its year round sunshine. As an area it is of interest both for its beautiful beaches, of which there are many, and for its country side with its associated wildlife. The entertainment provided by the beaches and the resorts rival that of any other holiday in the sun location. However, the lesser known country side should not be ignored. This is particularly true if you enjoy walking, bird watching and other outdoor pursuits such as pony trekking. Artists/painters will also find much to inspire them both on the coast and in the interior.
This area is ideally located as a starting point for much that the Algarve has to offer. Silves, itself is a small town of considerable historical interest. It has a hill top castle built by the Moors at a time when Silves was the capital city for the region. However its history is even older with connections to the Roman occupation and even earlier times when the Phoenicians visited on route to north western Europe. Short drives away are the beaches and giant Water Parks, including Zoo Marine which has dolphin displays as well as rides and other attractions. Silves is also ideal starting point for trips into the mountains. Monchique is only some twenty five minutes away and a little further along one reaches the highest point on the Algarve – Foia. From here the views are to the coasts on both the south and west. Along the route to Monchique there are many small restaurants many of which serve the famous Chicken Pir-Piri. Also within easy driving distance from Silves are many golf courses including Palmares (20 minutes) and Penina (10 minutes).
