Holiday house vacation along Portugal’s south coast

Algarve | The coastal region Algarve is one of Europe’s most popular travel destinations. Wide, flat sandy beaches, beautiful villages and many leisure facilities are some of characteristics for the eastern part of the Algarve coast. This part of the coast, also referred to as Sotavento, stretches from the Spanish border to the main city Faro. The western section is shaped by its impressive cliff coast, idyllic bathing bays and charming beautiful landscape and is situated between Faro and Sagres. This part is also called Barlavento. The windswept Cabo de São Vicente is the south western most point of Europe and was said to be the end of the world until Christoph Columbus discovered America. Behind the coastal area which is also called “Littoral” ascend the peaks and mountains of the Serra de Monchique and the Serra de Calderao. The impressive mountainous backdrop offers lots of room and is ideal for an active holiday. Whether you want to go climbing, mountain biking, hiking or just want to enjoy the panorama with the deep blue ocean – here almost anything is possible and on atraveo you can also find pretty holiday houses in the mountains.

What else you can do around the Algarve? Interesting cities such as Faro, Portimao, Lagos or Tavira are always worth a visit. Besides that the Algarve has probably the world’s greatest density of golf courses that will be very much to the liking of golf enthusiasts. Around the larger cities there are range of leisure facilities including adventure pools, go-cart tracks and miniature golf. In addition to this numerous day trips such as the lighthouse of Cabo de São Vicente will give you lots of entertainment.

    “Faro is a quiet place with lots of charm and character. Gastronomy excellent, life takes place on the street in summer. The Portogiesen are a very nice people, where you can just feel relaxation. The small streets and the harbor are magical, you will not be overrun by tourism. We also recommend a boat tour, our skipper was unique, his knowledge was enormous, we have learned a lot, what we would have never known otherwise. The beach P. Beach is only a short bus ride of about 20 - 35 min, he drives about every hour.”

    “Faro is very nice because it's less touristy, unlike the main tourist centers.
    However, there is always a longer ride or boat trip needed to get to the beaches. They are very beautiful, especially the Ilha Deserta!”

    “Faro is a small city, so within one or two days you have seen the city. Because of That it is a good idea to rent a car so you can travel around in Algarve. Or just stay only a few days in this city.”
