Hello my name is Michele and I manage algarvehousing.net here in central Algarve.
We started the company after moving to Algarve in 2002, because we were amazed that the majority of tourists who visit this region stay mainly at the beach resorts like Vilamoura and Albufeira without venturing inland at all.
We live 20km inland where there is a very different Algarve, The Real Algarve, one unspoilt by tourism and unspoilt by development, an Algarve dominated by nature not by tower blocks.
We decided to promote individual holidays located in more private, quiet, semi-rural locations with a bias toward special unique properties.
The down side is that you need a hire car or mini bus, the upside is that you and your family and friends have the freedom to explore different towns, places and areas – from the mountains of the Serra, including Monchique, to the Ria Formosa and the chain of barrier islands in the south east, to the Ria Guadiana that forms the border between Spain and Portugal in the east and to places like Aljezur on the rugged west coast.
We also decided to try to provide more photographs of the properties we have to offer and more “what´s on” information than the existing websites that we came across. So, here we are, please take some time to look around our website, you may find a property that takes your fancy.
If you require any more information do not hesitate to give me, Michele, a call on ++351 963 717 094 or email me: michele[at]algarvehousing.net
