The Algarve region

The Algarve has long been a favourite of discerning travellers, drawn by the warmth of its' people, fantastic food and wonderful climate.

The reasons for visiting this area of Portugal just keep piling up! There truly is something for everybody and something different to do every day of the week, all in the knowledge that you'll find some of the most reasonable prices in western Europe whether eating in fine restaurants or parascending over some of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

Day trips to markets, cliff top castles, nature reserves, spa towns and many natural wonders are easily accomplished either by local transport which is cheap and frequent, trains to take you through the unspoilt countryside or hire car which is competitively priced.

There is every activity for children that you would expect from a leading holiday destination; waterparks abound, an aqua-marine park and a reptile farm set in subtropical gardens are just some of the attractions of the area.

The Algarve has become a by word for great golf and every major resort has a cluster of courses to suit all levels. Golfers can relax in the knowledge that those not so keen on the sport can find plenty to do until their companions return ecstatic or rueful but surely exhilarated!

Pleasantly warm in winter, the temperature rises steadily to towards the sun drenched summer. Blossom covers the ground in springtime and vivid displays of aromatic flowers can be seen along the coast. Inland green pine trees stretch for mile upon mile and later in the year orchards deliver their annual harvest of figs and oranges. Portugal is a colourful country and The Algarve has eye catching natural beauty all year round making it perfect for that winter get away.


The picturesque fishing village of Alvor has a rich history dating back to pre-Roman times. It's fate changed hands many times over the centuries until finally being secured by Christians in the 13th century.All distances and measurements are approximate.

Today Alvor is renowned for it's superb beaches, either long and sandy or divided by enchanting coves. Alvor remains a working fishing community with a fish market and thriving streets based around a 16th century Church at its centre.

Bars playing live music proliferate in it's narrow streets and excellent restaurants can be found right up to the water's edge. There is also a small square which occasionally hosts local events.

Mile upon mile of some of the worlds' finest golden sandy beaches stretch along the coast of the Algarve. In our opinion Alvor has the best of these on its doorstep.

Whether you wish to stroll along the coast uninterrupted with the sand between your toes or lie back in the enchanting surroundings of a secluded cove with cliffs soaring above, you will have plenty of space to enjoy some of the cleanest coastline in europe.

All major water sports are available on Alvor beach or surrounding beaches.

We had a fantastic time staying in Villa Marachique in Alvor. The apartment was first class... We were delighted on arrival! Bright, spacious, beautifully decorated - we really couldn't have asked for more! There are fantastic restaurants both over the road from the apartment complex and in Alvor Town which is a little walk (in the gorgeous evening sun!) The beaches are amazing- that's if you can drag yourself away from the poolside which is all spotlessly clean and the gardens carefully maintained. There are even goals and a play area for the kids and the children's pool is perfect for them to paddle- our son is 3 and we could confidently let him play in the water whilst watching from the sun loungers as it's not deep. I recommend this apartment and location 100% and the owners are very helpful and happy to answer any questions.

"Loved Villa Marachique, want to go back next year!"

Stayed here for 10 days with my husband, 4 year old and 5 month old. Apartment was perfect for us, ground floor, spacious and nicely decorated. The pool area is secure, very clean, gorgeous gardens and the cafe is good value for money. The playground is situated next to the baby pool so keeps children well entertained. Situated 15 mins from the town and the beach. We loved it!

"Birthday Treat"

We have stayed in Villa Marachique 4/5 times, twice in the last year, the apartment is tastefully decorated with many amenities. They have recently been updated, now they are even better and are even more welcoming. They are tidy spacious and very clean, I even got a bottle of Fizz when I said it was my birthday. The complex is stunning, the pool area is really chilled and very relaxing. The atmosphere is welcoming and friendly. Alvor is beautiful, amazing for food and a nightlife and a convenient location to explore the mountains and the quieter West Coast. I have recommended this is location to families and groups of friend who weren't disappointed. And would definitely go again.

"'Top spot in the sun'"

We have stayed at Vila Marachique many times, the complex is maintained to the highest standard and has one of the best pools in the Algarve. It is ideally situated for the town of Alvor, the apartment is overlooking the pool and is furnished well with home comforts and has most things to make your holiday stay comfortable and hassle free.. Should there be any need to contact the owners, Lynn and Ruth are only a phone call away to deal with any issues should they arise.Just about to book our next stay ! David and Mabes Embleton
