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.

Then take some time and have a look through the offers for Portugal’s south coast on atraveo in order to find your perfect holiday home!

    “Such a local assessment is difficult, since every other expectations and demands. Since we do not love tourist tourist castles, we have met Olhao as an original clean resort (hopefully the remaining old houses are still preserved and some of them are already there). You can do splendid excursions from here and there are many smaller restaurants and who wants to cook themselves, will find in the market hall a large selection a fish, meat, vegetables, etc.”

    “Sufficient Einkaufsmöglichkeitenin a variety of supermarkets and the two bustling market halls (fish and vegetables / meat) in Olhão. Recommended the fish restaurants near the fishing port and the old town center. Despite many tourists Olhao received a pleasantly relaxed atmosphere.”

    “Enough shops for groceries. Plenty of opportunities to go to discover the hinterland and the coast. Departure point for the boat to the islands off the coast. Lovely to walk there and the atmosphere of simplicity that Portugal offers sniff.
    Go especially to the market halls .The kids loved it there to look around and buy fresh fish and vegetables .A coffee at the small harbor, boats and people watching ..... delicious.
    Olhão has stolen our hearts. Also very nice is to take the train to Faro or Tavira direction. Beautiful railway that goes along the coast, doing small neighboring stations. Spacious views and offers one comes much more easily in touch with the friendly locals.
    There Fuseta runs olhao also a landscaped bike / walking path.”

    “Only to go swimming, you have to take a boat to the islands namely Armona or Farol. It costs pennies but otherwise nice place.”
