The Algarve region
Shaped by different geographies and cultures, The Algarve offers a multi-faceted experience, having a slightly African as well as European air. The Algarve lies on the Atlantic Ocean, yet has a distinctly Mediterranean feel, with both a Christian and Islamic heritage. The name algarve comes from the Arabic, 'Al Ghareb', which means the west, or more poetically, 'the land of the setting sun'. The inherent variety and beauty of the natural landscape, combined with year round sunshine make the Algarve an ideal place to stay - peace and quiet or modern sophistication and activity - the choice is yours.
The area has many beautiful beaches and an abundance of country side with plenty of wildlife and is great if you enjoy walking, bird watching and other outdoor pursuits such as pony trekking. Artists/painters will find much to inspire them both on the coast and here in the countryside.
Casa Vehla is found at Caravela, inland from the beach 'Armacao de Pera', nestled in the hills above Alcantarilha - a perfect retreat from the coastal resorts.Caravela is a small community of villas located near Silves and within a 40 minute drive from the delightful Monchique mountains. There is a small grocery shop towards Poco Barreto and more amenities and restaurants in nearby Algoz. Car hire is essential, enabling you to explore the spectacular Algarve beaches, the dramatic Portuguese west coast, the blue hills of the Monchique and the historic towns and cities of the Algarve. Poco Baretto has a top quality restaurant, O'Alambiquie, where Chris Evans is reported to have had his wedding reception!
