from a wide range
an idyllic year round destination
The Algarve, derived from the Arabic terms ‘Al Gharb’ meaning ‘The West’, is situated in the extreme south of Portugal. The region is a delight to visit all year round with the golden sandy beaches on the coast offering a haven for sun seekers whilst the sleepy hillside villages further inland offer peace and tranquillity for those looking to get away from the stresses and strains of everyday life.
Resorts including Albufeira, Armação de Pêra, Praia da Rocha, and Vilamoura, are among the Algarve’s main holiday destinations. Offering an excellent selection of accommodation, beaches, entertainment and a variety of nightlife ranging from cabaret shows at casinos to lively discos and quiet, welcoming bars, it is no surprise that the Algarve has visitors coming back year after year.
The coastal city of Faro is the region’s capital. Faro stands out as an important commercial, artistic and cultural centre. Often simply passed through by visitors as a gateway, the city in fact offers fascinating architecture as part of the region’s rich history.
