Location description from owner
The Algarve region
The Algarve / Central Algarve region
The length of the south-facing coastline is approx. 155 kilometres and stretches about 52 kilometres to the north on the west. At the widest point to the north, it is approximately 36 kilometres deep. Communication is mainly by road but there is single-track railway line running from Lagos to Vila Real do Santo António that also links to the line running to Lisbon and further north.
The old "EN125" main road runs along the whole coast and has now been greatly replaced by the new almost parallel motorway "A22". Close to Albufeira it joins with the main motorway to Lisbon. This motorway will take you from the Spanish border at Vila Real de Santo António in the east to the historic town of Lagos in the west in a little over anhours drive.
There are about 100 sandy attractive beaches washed by the Atlantic Ocean and due to the maritime shelf and water currents the sea temperature can often be surprisingly warm even in some of the winter months. Located on the tip of Europe the Atlantic ocean is at its southern and western border, this enviable position gives the region possibly the most unpolluted climate in the European continent.
The scenery inland from the coast varies in its picturesque appeal due to its variety of fauna, soil and contours. In January and February the coast is painted white with almond blossom shading the many varieties of wild orchids. In March, the heady perfume of orange blossom mixes with the bloom of acacias. During the month of April the bountiful wild flowers give cause to the delightful music of the many colourful birds. May and June is the time to see the raw beauty of the striking bare barks of stripped cork trees in contrast to the palette purple of the jacaranda. July is the time of cherries, strawberries and melons. August and September provide the picking of grapes, figs and almonds. November is for the gathering of chestnuts for the national festival of São Martinho. Whilst, in December it is time to start picking the famous sweet juicy Algarve oranges which continue through to March.
Away from the immediate coastal plain are the foothills leading up to the highest point Foia (902 mts.) above the un-spoilt village of Monchique. This mountain area is well known for the layers of Roman terraces with granite stone walls that provide the stream of local vegetables that can be found on sale in the local market. Also, from this region comes the local brewed drink "Medronho" that is best drunk in one of the many local taverns.
Carvoeiro is a pretty fishing village set in the hillside overlooking its own beach, just 45 minutes drive along the main highway west of Faro and 3 hours south of Lisbon. Carvoeiro still retains some character with the narrows cobbled streets. It is a well-developed tourist village with beautiful small beaches, caves, golf courses and offers all the essentials for the perfect holiday.
The local shops and mini mercados sell most of the supplies you will need, there is also a large Intermache on the main road in from Lagoa. In the centre of the village you will find the municipal market selling fresh fruit, vegetables meat and locally caught fish. Butchers, bakers,several banks, Bureau de Changes, two doctors, a dentist and pharmacy are also to be found in the village.
