About the location

The Algarve stretches right along Portugal's southern edge, from the Spanish border in the east to the Atlantic Ocean in the west. Its best asset? The rugged coastline - it alternates between sweeping sandy bays and hideaway coves backed by honey-hued cliffs.

When it comes to picking a place to base yourself, you've got bigger towns spread out along the coast, and quiet hamlets and sleepy fishing villages dotted in between. Each one offers up something different, from Vilamoura and its chic marina and duo of beaches, to the village of Porches, famous for its handcrafted ceramics. The year-round climate means the Algarve caters for more than just the beach crowds – it’s one of the best places in Portugal for golf, and since it rarely gets cold, you can hit the greens any time. Another upside of the climate? The fantastic fresh cuisine – expect locally grown fruit and veg, and seafood suppers you can see being hauled off the boat.
