Luxury Algarve Holidays

Portugal's golden lining


Located on the south coast of Portugal, the main draw of holidays in the Algarve is its pristine beaches. Drive along the coastline and find your own secluded spot or quiet bay or enjoy the lively and bustling sweeping golden bays which are backed by family friendly tavernas and offer water sports galore. Whether you’re travelling with the family, as a couple or want to explore the golf, spas and more you’ll find the ideal holiday in the Algarve.

At Sovereign we’ll help you choose the perfect base from which to explore. The sleepy village of Porches is full of local arts and culture, as well as pretty little streets with family run cafés and bars and quiet coves full of loungers and parasols. Vilamoura offers a more cosmopolitan atmosphere, with its bustling marina where luxury yachts and little fishing boats moor side by side, and two beaches to choose from.

Luxury holidays in Algarve

Whether it’s a relaxing holiday in a sleepy little village or an upmarket spa or golf retreat, you’ll find your perfect luxury holiday in the Algarve. Spend lazy days on the golden sands of the beach, or choose from one of our many hand picked hotels. Here you’ll find infinity pools, elegant interiors and menus designed by Michelin starred chefs. Full service spas offer the chance to leave feeling rejuvenated and refreshed while there are professional standard golf courses dotted along the coast. Soak up the sun as you enjoy the views of the glittering sea.

Explore pretty old towns which date back to ancient times and former fishing villages which retain much of their whitewashed beauty. Drop into pretty little churches and admire views of the sparkling ocean. Take a romantic boat trip along the coastline and stop off in secluded coves where you can enjoy a picnic lunch or snorkel with the exotic fish.
