This popular holiday destination has sunshine by the bucket and spade load. The Blue Flag beaches, watersports and activities for kids make the Algarve a fantastic choice for a fun-filled family break. From the lively resorts near the beach to the cobbled streets and whitewashed houses in the villages, the Algarve has something for everyone. And with a three hour flight time from the UK, getting there is a breeze.
Soak up the sun on the terrace at a self-catering apartment or enjoy the space of a luxury villa in the Algarve for your next holiday.
Things to do from your villas in Algarve
One of the best ways to see the natural beauty of the Algarve coastline is with a visit to the Ponta da Piedade. The weathered cliffs, rock pillars, natural tunnels and hidden grottos are stunning. Join a boat trip and let your captain navigate through the rocky formations and view the magnificent cliffs from the sea. The shops, restaurant and lighthouse at the peak of the cliffs are also well worth a visit. There are so many beautiful beaches here you'll be spoilt for choice - Praia Gale, Meia Praia and Tavira Island to name but a few - so if you love a beach holiday, the Algarve will certainly not disappoint.
There are so many attractions here you'll want to come back year after year. Some highlights include the Slide & Splash Water Park in Lagoa, Zoomarine Algarve in Guia and the atmospheric and historical Cerro da Vila in Vilamoura.
Food & drink in Algarve
When you're not cooking up your own culinary creations in your self-catering holiday home, there are plenty of tempting places to eat and drink in the Algarve. Enjoy some traditional Portuguese which usually involves fresh fish and shellfish. The national dish is "bacalhau" (dried, salted cod) and the classic "caldeirada" (fish stew) is a thing of wonder. Grilled sardines and horse mackerel are popular in the coastal towns and meat eaters should try the "cozido à portuguesa", a thick stew of vegetables with meat. “Leitão assado" (roast suckling pig) is popular in the north of the country, as are pork sausages called "chouriço" or "linguiça."
