The Algarve is the beautiful southern coastline of Portugal – a region blessed with stunning beaches, picturesque fishing towns and a glorious climate.
Whatever your holiday style you will find it here – fabulous beaches from Praia da Luz to Armacao de Pera, thermal springs at Caldas de Monchique and miles of limestone caves and grottoes, cliffs and bays along its rugged coastline. There are waterparks and theme parks for thrill seekers, an abundance of golf courses, plenty of nightlife and historic towns for the culture vultures. Surrounded on two sides by the Atlantic, it’s also a paradise for surfers.
Up in the hills are historic castle towns and whitewashed villages. The rolling countryside is covered in cork, carob and almond trees and citrus orchards, rural farmhouse restaurants and the wonderful Via Algarviana hiking trail crossing the region’s breadth.
Sarah has many contacts in Portugal having lived and worked there for a short while. Not all our properties are shown here – for instance some stunning beach houses in the trendy Comporta region – as owners often don’t wish for their houses to be widely available. Please talk to us further for ideas.
