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.

    “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.”

    “Shops (supermarket) are close (about 3 km) are present. However, a vehicle is mandatory in order to reach all places and also the beach can.”
