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.

    “small quiet place with a small supermarket, two cafes and a pizzeria - beautiful church. Shopping in Almancil (Aldi, Apolonia), Faro (Jumbo in Forum Algarve), Olhao (Lidl, Continente), Sao Bras de Alportel (Intermarché) good starting point for many excursions (Olhao, Tavira, Ria Formosa, Salir etc.). Highly recommended is a boat trip through the Ria Formosa.”
