Unforgettable Algarve villa holidays in beautiful Portugal
Algarve villa holidays have proved their popularity over the last number of years. These holidays can be enjoyed all year round and in many respects spring and autumn are the best times of the year to go when the sun is still hot and there are fewer holiday makers. Prices are also cheaper off-season for Algarve villa holidays.
The majority of holidaymakers to Portugal head for the Algarve region because of its breathtaking sandy beaches and idyllic rocky coves. The area is easily accessible with all flights landing at Faro international airport 6 kilometres west of the town. Taxis and local buses run from the airport into the town. All the major car hire companies have offices at the airport. Lastminute.com and cheapflights.co.uk are two websites where you can find good deals on flights.
Algarve villas for rent can be found the length and breath of the region. The western Algarve from Faro to Sagres is intensely developed but has great beaches and many golf courses. Albufeira, Alvor and Vilamoura are some of the resorts in this part.
Silves is a very attractive town with a castle, being the former medieval residence and capital of the Moorish kings of the al -Gharb. The Moorish Fortalaza dominates the town with its impressively complete set of sandstone walls and detached towers. The views from the castle walls are breathtaking.
The Serra de Monchique lies inland. This is a green and wooded mountain range of cork, chestnut and eucalyptus and is a great area for hiking.
Algarve villa holidays are well worth checking out.
