The Algarve attracts families and couples with some of Europe's, indeed the world's, most stunning beaches which have made it one of Portugal’s most popular tourist destinations. The coast is lined with miles of long golden sandy beaches, dramatic cliffs, caves, secluded coves and an amazing outcrop of rock formations. Beautiful beaches annually awarded the European Blue Flag status for excellence provide great venues for all types of watersports, all combining to make a villa holiday in the Algarve the perfect holiday for families, friends and couples alike.

Things to do in Algarve

Apart from the wonderful beaches, there is plenty on offer to keep you coming back year after year, experience the local culture and food, explore the famous Ria Formosa Natural Park ideal for hiking and short walks as well as luxury boat trips. The Algarve region offers a variety of natural beauty, sunny weather, quiet town centre locations, traditional villages and excellent nightlife. It’s also home to some world-famous winemaking vineyards, so there is sure to be some sampling, perhaps by your villa’s private pool.

History and Culture in Algarve

The heritage of the Algarve is easy to see as you travel around the region, with decorative glazed tiles on the buildings and the flat roofed, small windowed buildings, which are signs of the Moorish influence of the past. There are a number of Algarve churches to spot which date back to the 15th & 16th Centuries. The architecture is less lavish and not overtly religious, with high ceilings and wide arch ways including visible nautical themes and fantastical creatures inspired from tales of the New World. Some traditional Algarve crafts include basket making, weaving and lace making, pottery is also seen all over the Algarve, perhaps take back some memories of the Algarve to brighten up your home.
 

Family holidays in Algarve

For the perfect holiday perhaps choose a family villa in The Algarve for some fun and relaxation. The numerous beaches of white clean sand, a calm and safe sea and more than 300 days of sunshine per year make this one of the best holiday destinations in the world. Within the Algarve region there are many popular family activities including Splash and Slide Waterpark and the fantastic Zoomarine.  Choose a family villa with a private pool for even more fun in the water.

The beaches at Albufeira and Carvoeiro are incredibly family friendly and our villas are located close to both of these sandy havens.
