About the location
Porches is a traditional Portuguese village in the Algarve, around 10 kilometres east of the city of Lagoa. Pretty, peaceful and packed with Portuguese culture, Porches has retained a small-town charm with a handful of modern touches on the outskirts. Traditional architecture and old houses line the streets, finished with their signature decorated chimneys. Porches is famous throughout Portugal for its pottery. The streets are scattered with little shops where you can watch potters at work and pick up lovely handcrafted ceramics.

Vineyards dot the surrounding countryside, giving the town its other famous produce - wine. The best known is Mateus, a medium-sweet rosé that's loved worldwide. Foodies will have a field day in Porches' local restaurants - most menus have a focus on fresh seafood, but you'll also find Mediterranean favourites with a spicy Brazilian twist. If you fancy getting out and about, the town is within easy reach of the market town of Lagoa and the beaches and entertainment of Carvoeiro.
