Algarve Weather – What´s it like at this time of year?

Algarve Weather – We are often asked “What´s the weather like in The Algarve in November”
So, we shot a very short video last weekend to show you:

As I write this, it´s 19 degrees C outside, that´s 66F, and there´s not a cloud in the sky. Again.

Of course it rains sometimes and we get cloudy days too but on the other hand we have had 10 straight days of clear skies and glorious sunhine.

We were photographing a villa, here in Algarve, yesterday and here is one of the photos from that shoot, this really shows what the sky is like at this time of year, (no photoshop here), far better than video can show.

Blue skies and winter sun

Once you open the door in the wall you enter a world of coloured terraces, quiet corners, planted borders and other places where you can relax and unwind. The house has a walled courtyard and gardens, containing a lovely variety of trees, shrubs and smaller flowers, along with a small pond and together this all creates a sence of calm and privacy.

If you enter the house from the main doors you enter the kitchen which is situated between the large sitting room and the dining room, all of which have high ceilings and are open plan. The island in the kitchen houses the sink and drainer and behind that you will find an electric hob, oven and grill.
There is also a fridge / freezer, a dishwasher and a washing machine. All the usual utensils required for preparing, cooking and eating are on hand.
The dining room has a large wooden dining table and room for everyone.
The lounge has a large sofa and an area with TV, Sky TV, Music TV and Ipod speakers, it also has a woodburning stove.

Once through the sitting room area you come to the bedrooms, first you will find  a twin room and a seperate bathroom, next along the hallway is a double with ensuite shower room, lastly you will find the master bedroom, and this has an ensuite shower-room and direct access to the walled courtyard outside the french doors.

Poolside you will find areas of sun and shade with seating, loungers and umbrellas. There are two covered terraces, the blue and the red and there is also a roof terrace, ideal for drying your bikini, etc.

What we like about this house is the large amount of lovely details everywhere you look and that it´s location lends itself to exploring both the natural inland areas of the Algarve and  you are within 30 minutes to some of the nicest beaches of the Algarve, like Quarteira, Vilamoura and Vale de Lobo. Loule is only a 20 minutes drive away, and here you can find everything you need, plus it is a very lively town with lots of entertainment in the Summer, like various music festivals etc…

The bad news is that this house is not even available for holiday rentals until the begining of April, but, the good news is that you can book it right now and you can look forward to a sunny holiday throughout this winter.
