The Algarve region

The area that is now the municipality of So Brs de Alportel, in common with the Algarve as a whole, was inhabited in prehistoric times and in the days of the Romans. Birthplace of the Moorish poet Ibne Ammar in the 12th century, So Brs de Alportel was by the 16th century a small village with a Hermitage. From the 17th century onwards it was the summer residence of the bishops of the Algarve, who were drawn to it by its agreeable climate, and in the 19th century it became the crossroad of the routes linking Loul to Tavira and Faro to Almodver. The area's extensive plantations of cork oak provided a spring board for commercial and industrial development and for years So Brs de Alportel was the biggest cork producing centre in Portug

Sao Bras de Alportel

A walk in the Barrocal

Villages nestling between hills. Walls of whitewashed stone flashing in the sun. The lush foliage of almond, fig, carob and pomegranate trees. The bright colours of windows and doors standing out from plain facades. From Mesquita, with its typical water mill, through the picturesque villages of Desbarato Mealhas, Gralheira and Vilarinhos, this route offers a fascinating insight into the Barrocal, the intermediate country that lies between the coast and the hills of the interior.

Up into the hills

Vast open spaces, pure air, fresh vistas around every corner. Then hamlets of just four or five houses perched on a hill top. A feeling that time has stopped, a sense of penetrating the secret heart of the Algarve.

The tranquil, unhurried lifestyle of the friendly local population. Streets of white houses whose ranks are broken only by the lofty outline of the church and its bell tower. The ring of hills around, the town that look out on the sea and the mountains. Such are the simple charms of So Brs de Alportel, a typical Algarve town.

Historical Centre

Low, white houses typical of popular architecture stand alongside more substantial buildings, their facades decorated with tiles, ornate stonework and cast iron verandas, whose opulence harks back to So Brs de Alportel's prosperity, in the years when the cork industry was booming. The high and low points of the towns changing fortunes are thus written in the stones of its streets and squares; while such details as the baroque mortar decoration of the Passo da Paixo (Stations of the Cross) near the Episcopal Palace and the pretty flower pots in the windows add colour and interest to their story.

“Great Place to stay”

Reviewed 9 Sep 2016

We stayed at Casa Palmeria for 10 days during mid August. The information we received pre arrival and directions to the villa were both excellent. The owner who we met was very helpful and provided lots of information on the local area. The air conditioning in two of the rooms really helped when the temperatures were staying at 24 degrees overnight. The villa is set in a very quiet location at the top of the hill with lovely views. The main town is only 5 minutes away by car. The villa has everything you need (and much more) for a great holiday. We would have no hesitation in returning

“Quiet and convenient”

Reviewed 2 Jan 2014

Being inland and higher has big advantages : it is quieter, it is cooler, it is ideal for exploring lots of places on the coast, and food shopping is cheaper. You are spoilt for choice when eating out - and that costs less too. The Villa has its own personality with plenty of bedrooms, a comfy lounge, a big kitchen, a roof-top b.b.q. and plenty of freedom around the pool. Car hire essential. We went there with friends and enjoyed ourselves thoroughly.

“Lovely Villa in a quite location within easy reach of local towns and the coast.”

Reviewed 1 Jan 2014

The villa is located in an elevated location with fabulous views over Sao Bras de Alportel and the hills around. Casa Palmeira is situated in a quite location within a development of a number of individual villas, it is close to the town of Sao Bras a short drive away. The villa is well appointed with comfortable accommodation and has a well kept Mediterranean style garden. The pool is of a good size and was well maintained during our visit. There are a number of good restaurants in the area which we found to be reasonably priced. A car is necessary to access the coast and beaches, the beach at Fuzeta was one of the best we found accessed by a short ferry ride. The local towns of the Algarve such as Loule & Tavira are both worth a visit as is Faro old town about a 40 minute drive away. We look forward to returning soon.
