General Information

Here you will find general information about life and holidays in the Algarve, about excursions, cities, etc.

Portugal and the Algarve are always worth a trip! Mild temperatures in January and February, sunshine and blooming almond trees make you forget the cold winter back home. Many guests overwinter in the Algarve at this time. Spring already offers best swimming conditions in sheltered bays of Albufeira, Carvoeiro, Alvor, Lagos and Praia da Luz. The summer season starts in May and ends mid October.

The Algarve is the southernmost province of Portugal with a Mediterranean, almost subtropical climate. Over 100 golden sandy beaches and bays, offer variety to your holidays. Especially find picturesque beaches, spectacular sea caverns and beautiful hiking trails along the cliffs. Book your Algarve last minute beach holiday apartment and enjoy a comfortable and relaxing break.

If you travel to the Algarve, in addition to a relaxing beach holiday, you can enjoy a plethora of trips, sport activities, visit shopping centres and enjoy the nightlife with numerous bars, restaurants and discos to choose from. Even history buffs will be enthralled with the region. Stone Age megalithic structures, Moorish castles, medieval towns, ornate churches, ruins of a Roman villa in Alvor and Estoi are witnesses to the past history of the Algarve. For this type of Algarve holidays an apartment is just the right choice. 

The undiscovered inland region of the Algarve is ideal for hiking. Book a holiday in the Algarve, rent a car and explore the surrounding towns and attractions. The “Algarvios” are very open to visitors, friendly but never intrusive and somehow show restrained politeness. The love of children is fundamentally important in the Portuguese family, which makes a family holiday in the Algarve particularly pleasant. 

Due to the mild climate you can also spend winter in Portugal. Especially the “rock Algarve” towns of Albufeira, Carvoeiro or Lagos is for long-term travellers and long-term tenants a popular choice. The almond blossoms found throughout the Algarve from December to February cause many a tourist to opt for renting an apartment and travel to the Algarve over this period, often choosing a last minute trip. 

On the most beautiful areas of the rocky Algarve, you will find a vast selection of accommodation: whether a beautiful Algarve holiday apartment with sea views, a stylish Algarve villa, a private villa with pool or a lovely holiday home. Besides that, you will also find holiday homes, villas and apartments in a gated condominium in other villages and towns of the Algarve such as: Tavira, Quinta do Lago, Vilamoura, Ferragudo, Praia da Rocha and Albufeira. If you rent an apartment for your Algarve holiday, you will enjoy well-equipped kitchens and the opportunity to prepare your own meals. In local supermarkets you will find one of Europe's best fish and seafood selections and the freshest vegetables, the meat selection is also of very good quality.
