  With an average of 12 sunny hours a day, the Algarve offers us one of the most stable climates in Europe. In the summer it is not too hot and the winters are mild. An ideal holiday spot throughout the whole year.

The seaside has clean water for swimming and the sandy beaches are very wide. Everywhere you will find nice little restaurants, café’s and bars. Shops with the typical Portuguese pottery, sweets and liquors.
Ideal for sunbathing and relaxing, but also ideal for trips in the countryside. Starting at your holiday home, all the beautiful spots are within your reach if you follow the new (traffic jam free) motorway along the coast.

Nature.
Also for nature-lovers the Algarve is very attractive.
Depending the season, you can enjoy the blossoming almond trees, experience the scent of the orange grooves in full bloom. Witness the harvest ritual of the olives and the carobs. Every season shows different flowering plants and wild flowers.
Bird-lovers: please don’t forget your binoculars! This is the place to observe birds of prey (also outside of the bird sanctuary). Lots of storks build their nests right in the middle of towns and villages and observe us…
Walks on the beach? Hiking in the hills? Everything is possible here, we even can provide a guide who will give you a detailed explanation on plants and wildlife.

After relaxing a few days, you might want to stretch your legs and go sights seeing. In the information book in the villa you will find some nice suggestion for a day out.
Fancy a game of golf, mountain biking, jet skiing, karting, a quad ride? Or would you rather go dolphin spotting, have a jeep safari in the hills?
The Algarve has more to offer than you would expect;

A beautiful authentic fisherman’s town, situated alongside the Rio Gilão, with some unspoiled beaches in front of the coast. It is one the most charming cities in the Algarve, representing the typical ancient architecture of the previous ages. A visit to one of the 37 churches is recommended.

Only a short drive away from your villa you will find some beautiful and quiet offshore beaches (sandbanks), which can be reached with small boats.

Ria Formosa

The beautiful Ria Formosa Natural Park of 18.000 hectares is primarily a lagoon system, which is protected by sandbanks. A huge variety of wetland birds can be seen in Park, as well as ducks, shorebirds, gulls, terns and the rare purple gallinule. Storks, herons and many other species can be observed in the Park.
