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.

    “Silves is a few kilometers away and is a beautiful town with a great castle. There is plenty of shopping, which was very helpful for us because we have largely supplied ourselves. In the town itself there is a very tasty restaurant. We were there 2x times food. Renting a car for the time is definitely recommended to get to know the beautiful surroundings. Boat tours can be prima Book of Albuffira what really worth it as the coast ausschauen wonderfully with their dens. The walks in the hinterland. Super nice, as has indeed to our time flourished everything. Excellent starting point to get to know the nice towns of the Algarve. Particularly Lagos we liked.”

    “Silves is a nice town to visit because of the castle, cathedral and archeological museum set not so much of; Good for visit of a few hours to half a day. However, plenty of opportunities for something to eat or drink.”

    “The town of Silves is a medieval gem and you should be especially at the time there in August, when the whole city in the Middle Ages come to life again. The entire city is catapulted back into the Middle Ages with paneled residents and tourists, a lot of interesting food stalls, knights fighting and fire-eaters and much, much more. This is a truly amazing experience for the whole family. Shopping opportunities can be found in Silves at the well-stocked Continente (very good fresh fish) and of course there is Lidl in place. Fruits and vegetables very inexpensive, however costly cosmetics. All shopping facilities are only about 3 km from the house and also open on Sundays. Must try (there are in almost every restaurant there): Frango Piri Piri (specially seasoned fried chicken on the grill, a specialty of the region there). The beaches in Portimao and along the coast towards Faro were very busy, so we focus on the beaches in Aljezur (west coast, here specifically Bordeira) have limited. Although a 1 hour drive, but breathtaking sea, super waves and spectacular surf professionals. Also suitable for small children because the sea is a small lagoon in front immediately, which is only knee-deep. Everywhere there are huge water parks (eg 5 minutes away in Lagoa equal in the neighboring town of Silves). We visited a park in Quarteira, here is a combination of amusement park and water park. A tip: buy the tickets in advance from home online, you can save 1/3 of the cost.”
