The Algarve region
The Algarve is famous for its lovely sunny all-year round climate, with the Eastern Algarve benefitting from warmer conditions, given its closer proximty to the Meditteranean than the Atlantic Ocean.
The Algarve consists of three key regions. Western Algarve, closest to the Atlantic Ocean incorporates places such as Sagres, where the famous Beer of that name is made, together with many little fishing villages and sandy coves and beaches. Lagos is a beautiful little coastal town, bursting with life, restaurants, bars and bustling street activity - not to be missed!
In Central Algarve, you will discover more well known places such as Faro, Villamoura, Portimao and Albufuera - all within a 30 minute to a 1 hour drive of Tavira and all having their own Marinas, with the one at Villamoura a particular favourite of ours. Loule Market - a place to banter and bargain. Hunt in the colourful and bustling gypsy market of Loule, within 30 minutes of the Alto do Perogil. Chance to see traditional skills of Leather, Copperware and Lace. Also the largest fruit and vegetable market of the Algarve. There are a number of Water Parks for the children to enjoy in the Central Algarve area.
Closer to Tavira in the Eastern Algarve, we have Olhao famous for its fishing industry and Sea Food Festival in August each year. San Antonio and Villa Real are picturesque and interesting destinations to visit along the Spanish border to the east of Tavira, along with Monte Gordo, a favourite destination of the Portuguese holidaymaker.
From Tavira, visit the beautiful City of Seville, the Capital of Andalucia and probably Spain's lovliest city!

Fantastic Golf courses feature all across the Algarve region, rightly voted some of the Best in the World for the Holiday Golfer or Professional alike!
Tavira is a charming old town often known as the prettiest of the Algarve, with a long history, where time seems to have stood still.
