Location description from owner

The Algarve region

The Algarve from the Arabic word meaning "the west" is the southernmost region of mainland Portugal. The region coincides with the Faro District, and has as its administrative centre the city of Faro, where both the region's international airport at Faro (FAO) and public university (the University of the Algarve) are located. Tourism and related activities are extensive and make up the bulk of the Algarve's summer economy. Fish, seafood and fruit production, are other important activities in the region. The Algarve is the most popular tourist destination in Portugal, and one of the most popular in Europe. Its population triples in the peak holiday season thanks to a high influx of visitors, and receives an average of 7 million foreign tourists each year. In total, including national visitors, almost 10 million people visit the Algarve every year.

The myriad of opportunities provided by this location means you are within moments of two extremes; total peace and tranquillity for those times when nothing but chilling out will do, through to the best sports or shopping facilities with award winning developments offering you the best that the Algarve can provide.

Weather
March to October is warm with little rain in the south. With an average of 3,000 hours of sun per year, the south-facing coast of the Algarve is the sunniest, driest, and warmest part of the country. Tempered by the Atlantic Ocean means the summer heat rarely reaches the unpleasant levels sometimes found in other parts of the Mediterranean. Winters are mild and wet.

The Algarve: Long sandy beaches have brought mass tourist development to the area. The charms of the area may be overwhelmed, so it's best to skip the high season and the area from Faro to Albufeira.

Festivals: Carnival celebration is held in Lisbon in February or March
June: Santos Populares - 13th, 24th and 29th June. The celebration on 13th June is the largest, and all begin the previous evening. People hit each other over the head in the streets with plastic hammers.
July and August: Estoril Festival takes place in July and August

Praia da Luz

Casa Gaivota is situated in a quiet and enviable position, with fantastic sea views and just a short walk, about 10 minutes, to the centre of Praia da Luz with its golden beach, cafes, shops and restaurants.

Praia da Luz is located in the Western Algarve of Portugal; approximately one hour west of Faro airport, and a short drive from the larger, historic town of Lagos. It has the advantage of being within easy reach of many picturesque bays and coves along the Algarve coast. Praia da Luz has developed over the past few years into a small, peaceful and popular family resort.

The sweeping sandy beach, which has a Blue Flag rating, as well as full time professional life guards, is ideal for families as it offers safe bathing as well as many types of water sports (from May to October).

Places to Visit
Lagos: With one of the largest bays on the Algarve, Lagos is an attractive, bustling town conquered by the Moors who left behind fortifications, some of which can still be seen today.Cobbled streets and enchanting squares link the maize of thoroughfares creating an ambience of charm, culture and history in this captivating town. The citizens of Lagos continue to make their living from fishing giving the town a character and independence all of its own.

Lisbon: The likeable capital is a relaxed port, overlooked by a ruined castled. Whitewashed, cobbled streets form a labyrinth upon a hill, populated by fantastic architecture, and Art Nouveau shops and cafes. A statue of Christ stands by the river, arms outstretched, surveying the grand suspension bridge and river ferries. Travellers should visit the Mosteiro dos Jerónimos, the Manueline complex that houses the tomb of Vasco da Gama, and the Gulbenkian Museum, home to a superb art collection.

Porto: At the mouth of the Douro River, this atmospheric city of tangled tiers reaching up from the river's north bank has more to offer than simply its port-producing suburb of Vila Nova de Gaia. Spectacular bridges span the wide river, contemporary art is on display at the Fundação de Serralves, and the old town bustles beside its riverbanks.

Estremadura and Ribatejo: Just north of Lisbon, these regions are home to a number of delights. Surfers should head to the Atlantic rollers at Enceira, those interested in religion should visit Alcobaça's twelfth-century monastery and Fátima's famous shrine, while geologists will want to explore the Grutas de Mira de Aire - a vast and extraordinary cave system.

Activities and Sports

Shopping and Souvenirs

Restaurants
As you would expect fish and seafood are a staple part of the diet for people of the Algarve. The traditional Portuguese restaurants normally offer a large selection of fish dishes, one of which is almost certain to be grilled sardines. Also commonly on the menu are a range of omelettes, salads and some meat dishes. The prices are very reasonable, the food is good and the portions are generous. House wine, which is normally a local Portuguese wine is very good value and very drinkable! On average a 2 course meal for 2, including house wine can cost less than £25. Obviously prices vary enormously depending on location.
As well as restaurants serving traditional Portuguese food, the Algarve has a huge choice of restaurants serving food from across the world; Chinese, Indian, Italian and English being particularly popular. Thai, Mexican, Tapas and Vegetarian are also available.
Burgau and Praia da Luz have a good variety of restaurants, but the more traditional towns and villages will often just have a local Portuguese restaurant or cafe serving food.
