Summer Holidays to The Algarve
The Algarve Sun Holidays Review and Guide
A summer holiday to The Algarve on Portugal's southernmost tip is everything a Mediterranean sun seeker could wish for - sun, sea and sand must be the most common words used in any description of this Iberian coastline that stretches from Cape St. Vincent in the west to the Spanish frontier town of Vila Real de Santo Antonio. An Algarve summer holiday is set in an area that is undulating hills dotted with villages of whitewashed houses leading down to the coast with its mix of resorts and fishing villages set amongst chiselled cliff faces and rocky inlets.
This region of Portugal was popularised by the British in the 60s and a summer holiday to The Algarve caters to tourists from all over Europe. Tourism is a well practiced industry and you can holiday in large villa/apartment complexes, hotels or private villas with resorts ranging from tiny villages to small towns. Pretty Albufeira is popular because of its central location, cobbled old town and buzzing nightlife. Sophisticated Vilamoura attracts boat lovers with life being centred around a well developed Marina and Lagos has 2000 years of history around the still standing fortifications. An Algarve summer holiday is the perfect destination for any age.
Whether you are searching out some terracotta pottery, taking a speedboat to some hidden caves, paying a reverent visit to a quaint old church, soaking up the sun on a glorious beach, playing a round of golf or even looking for a British estate agent, a summer holiday to The Algarve is a Portuguese profusion of delights.
