The Algarve region

The Algarve is the southernmost region of mainland Portugal. Its highest point is the mountain range of Monchique, with a maximum altitude of 906m (Peak of the Fóia). The region is also the home of the Ria Formosa lagoon, a nature reserve of over 170 square kilometres and a stopping place for hundreds of different birds. The Algarve is perfect for relaxing holidays, with golden sands and crystal clear waters, clear blue skies, and the white-washed walls of the buildings in the Algarve's old towns and villages. The coastline includes some of the world's most beautiful beaches, but by venturing just a few miles inland, you can lose yourself in the heritage and history of the Algarve. The Algarve is also home to some of the world's most famous golf courses, where players of all ability are welcome. The Algarve's cuisine is based on fresh local produce – fish, seafood, fruit and vegetables, pork and chicken (chicken piri piri in the home of piri piri, the local village of Guia, is a must). Portuguese wines are very good and exceptionally well priced – try the vinho verde (green wine) – light and refreshing on a hot summer's evening. All year round, the Algarve enjoys one of the best climates in Europe. With only a short period of rainfall and long hours of sunshine the Algarve region is blessed with the perfect weather for tourism. The maximum temperatures in the Algarve vary throughout the year, between 15ºC and 31°C.

Porches

Porches is located right in the centre of the Algarve coast. Situated in a quiet village location but less than 5 minutes drive or 25 minutes walk from Armacao de Pera and 15 minutes drive from the popular resorts of Albufeira, Portimao, Alvor and Carvoeiro. Porches is famous for its terracotta pottery and is a wonderful Portuguese village with some of the best Blue Flag beaches, which are often frequented by the rich and famous. Close by is a fantastic luxury hotel, which offers five-star facilities and restaurants as well as a spa and beauty treatments which are open to the publc. There is a wide choice of restaurants and bars both at the beach and within the village. 15 minutes drive from Algarve Shopping, a large mall with stores, designer fashion boutiques, a hypermarket and food hall, multi-screen cinema, restaurants and bowling alley. An excellent selection of restaurants, two supermarkets and local shops are within walking distance of the apartment. Ideally situated for all the local attractions of the Algarve - its multitude of golf courses, water parks, zoos etc. Aqualand, Slide & Splash and Zoomarine are all within a 10 minute drive. The apartment is centrally located in the Algarve - ideal for golfing, sightseeing, beaches and relaxation. It is perfectly situated for walkers - being a few minutes walk from stunning cliff top walks that stretch for mile after mile and offer views of the dramatic rock formations, caves and numerous secluded beaches. It is also situated a few hundred yards from the Algarve Coastal Cycle Route, which runs the full length of the Algarve coast from the Spanish Border to Cape St Vincent, the most south westerly point of Europe.

“Spectacular apartment in a quiet and relaxing area with plenty to see”

Reviewed 27 Jul 2013

We really enjoyed our stay at Areias de Porches. The apartment has everything we needed and more to make our stay very relaxing. Even though the area is small and not very touristy, we found lots of interesting things to do such as the cliff top walks, the picturesque beaches and a trip to Carvoeiro. We also really enjoyed the local restaurants particularly Vila de Italia, New Delhi, Happy Talk and O Veleiro. The advice to use resorthoppa.com was also very useful as they were very reliable with our airport transfers. The balcony view was as described and if not better than the pictures show on the website. We really enjoyed having our breakfast there every morning looking out onto the view.

“Truly great holiday for relaxation; everything you need within walking distance”

Reviewed 24 Aug 2012

Our first trip to Portugal, and the first time we've booked an apartment rather than a hotel - we were not disappointed! The apartment is superbly kept and well equipped - with a southerly aspect giving sun on both balconies all day. The development too is tidy, clean and well managed. The local area is full of restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets, and all the amenities you need are in walking distance. The beaches are beautiful, the pools are great, but plenty to do and see if you want to explore the area by car too. Valerie is great to deal with - all in all our experience was fantastic - we'll be back!

“Great apartment, reliable owner, beautiful location.”

Reviewed 26 Apr 2012

We stayed here for a week in May 2010. Everything was as described, and possibly better. The apartment is extremely well appointed with all you could possibly need while on holiday, spotlessly clean, and in a strategic location not too far from Faro airport more or less in the middle of the Algarve. Many different beaches are within 10-20mins drive from the apartment, which is easily reached from the main road that runs along the southern coast of Portugal. The complex in which the apartment is located is fairly new, well looked after, and provides plenty of free onsite parking. Valerie is a great owner and will make anything she can to make your stay as easy and pleasant as possible. This was the first time I rented an apartment abroad as opposed to booking a B&B or hotel and all went very smoothly. The deposit was promptly returned once cleaners had verified that all was OK with the property.

“Beautiful apartment, great location.”

Reviewed 3 Apr 2012

Perfect holiday, had a wonderful time.Extremely comfortable & well equipt.We think the best position on the complex, with sun on the balcony all day. Good restaurants within walking distance. Would like to return again. Steve & Maureen

“2012 will be our third stay at this apartment so it must be good!”

Reviewed 19 Feb 2012

This is the only apartment we have returned to again and again (2009, 2011 and September 2012). This area of Portugal is an absolute delight and Por Do Sol apartment is the perfect base. The apartment has all the mod cons. It is light and airy and always well kept with anything you might need to make your stay more enjoyable. It has two balconies and is very will situated for enjoying the sunshine all through the day and evening until the sun goes down. The owner, Valerie, is always a pleasure to deal with. Heather and Bob

Thank you so much for all your kind words. It is so nice to know that guests love the apartment as much as we do and want to return time and again.
