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.

    “Many small very good restaurants, the clean beach invites to walk, also for runners, walkers and cyclists recommended, city itself very nice, many small narrow streets with cozy shops, price / performance ratio completely okay. You never get the impression "ripped off", many excursion possibilities are in the immediate vicinity and fast and uncomplicated with a rental car to reach. Small drawback, there is little German spoken more English, but with good school-English this is not a problem.”

    “There were 3 restaurants within walking distance.
    Small supermarket with the most necessary is about 3-400 meters away. There are also a couple of small hooks across the street but nothing special about them. In Alvor there are a lot of restaurants with price pictures medium / high.”

    “A great resort with its tranquil lagoon, the many small restaurants, music kinks and great shops. We were thrilled with the touristic development of the Lagunenrundweg, a wooden path as on Sylt, only with better weather. The wide Alvor beach is 70% completely undeveloped and manschenleer a dream and you will find many smaller bays with imposing sculptures nearby, like the Praia Tres Irmaos, which also has an excellent restaurant. The only downside is the ugly skyscrapers and apartment towers on the Atlantic.”
