Now that Spring is here, Portugal is once again taking on its own special charm. The sun shines ever more brightly, there are flowers everywhere and the time is ripe for communing with Nature. Come and visit us and discover the pleasure of strolling around without any fixed timetable, enjoying new experiences and savouring some perfect moments. Take your inspiration from our suggestions and draw up your very own tour plans!

Come and stay with us to enjoy the nature of the Algarve. Check our website for great private villa’s in the Algarve!

We give you 4 suggestions of the many we have to explore the Natural Algarve:

Enjoy the nature of Rocha da Pena

1.

Rocha da Pena

Hidden paradise in the rich Barrocal countryside

Rocha da Pena is a protected nature conservation area which support ecosystems of great ecological interest.

Between Benafim and Salir, with an area of more than 600 hectares and rising to a height of 479 metres, the craggy terrain of the Rocha da Pena site invites tourists to go for walks and is great for rock climbing.

Alvor Beach

2.

Alvor Estuary

Sites of Ecological Interest

Remarkable Observatories

Places where you can see different bird species nesting include the Alvor Estuary, Paul de Budens and Leixão da Gaivota. These are places where you can follow the incredible beauty of birds in flight.

The Alvor Estuary, nestled between Portimão and Lagos, is the most important wetland area in Western Algarve.  A lagoon complex, it covers 1400 hectares of marsh and dunes, which makes the area an excellent place for bird watching.

Monchique Mountains

3.

Serras de Monchique Espinhaço de Cão and Caldeirão

Variations in landscape in a diversely charming Algarve

Acting as a gigantic amphitheatre, the Monchique, Espinhaço de Cão and Caldeirão hills form a protective barrier for the lowlands of the coastal region, providing shelter from the cold northern winds.  The breeze from the Atlantic also contributes to the unique vegetation of the area.

Monchique is like a garden with breathtaking scenery and unique plant life within the Algarvian landscape.  This north-western part of the region emerges with streams flowing down from escarpments, hills where the arbutus berry tree grows, and where oaks, pines and chestnut trees are to be found.

Ria Formosa Nature Park

4.

Ria Formosa

Natural paradise between land and sea

The Ria Formosa Nature Park is a unique lagoon system that is continually changing because of the movements of winds, currents, and tides.

A gift of nature, of approximately 18,000 hectares, it is an area of transition between land and sea skirting 60 km of the Eastern Algarve coastline, between the Ancão peninsula and the Manta Rota beach in the East.

As you can see, our idea is to invite you to appreciate the best of life, get yourself into a good mood and make sure that you go home completely rested and full of energy! We urge you to accept our invitation and let yourself be seduced by the Spring in Portugal.

Relax and Have fun in the Algarve!

Alvor Beach


Welcoming you to our country is always a great pleasure for us! So, take advantage of the Easter break and come and get to know Portugal! You’ll find excellent reasons here to pause for a while and unwind from all the routine and stress of daily life. And you’ll always enjoy the guarantee of our mild climate, ideal for replenishing your energy. There’s a wide and varied range of options to choose from, but our motto is always the same: relax and have fun!

We give you a few tips of people who live here, of things to do in the Algarve.

There is a very nice walk along the length of Alvor’s beach and then returning via the estuary. One walk, two totally different landscapes

Pictoresque Tavira


Would you like to have some exercise during your holiday? Rent a bicycle, catch the train (with your bikes) at Boliqueime station, get off Faro station and cycle back, following the Eco-via cycle route. This is the best section of the route. You can see flamingos feeding in the Ria Formosa nature reserve; Roman ruins; golfers hitting their balls into the lagoon at Sao Lourenco; have lunch at BJ’s Oceanside restaurant at Quarteira; and stop for a drink at Vilamoura Marina.

Eco-via cycle route

Or fancy more a lazy afternoon at Forum Algarve, a large shopping centre near Faro, or shopping Algarve, near Guia and/or watch a film in the cinema.

Visit one of the region’s many wineries, Portuguese wine is underrated and these small, family-owned businesses are incredibly interesting. Plus there’s the tasting, of course.

Eat in a PROPER Portuguese restaurant – good food and great value. North of the A22 motorway you will find many towns and villages, where you find local food for local prices!

Drive to Monchique, eat typical Monchique food in the restaurant ‘ A Charrete’, enjoy the views in Foia and go across to Aljezur to explore the west coast beaches or go north to the border of the alentejo. Fantastic wild flower displays in the spring!

A drive from Silves to Alcoutim through the EN124 to discover the interior Algarve, fantastic green scenery, windy roads; stop in little villages for a beer or a lunch, discover the Real Algarve.

Having prawns BBQ’d in garlic and lemon with chips and salad followed by mousse de chocolate at the Adega da Marina in Lagos, pure indulgence on a budget!

Algarve Housing rent fantastic villas in the Algarve, all with private pool and garden. Visit our website and contact me for more information. We have some nice villas still available for your Easter break!

Visit the Algarve, and relax and have fun!

Algarve Places to Visit – Lagos, Jewel of the Algarve

Lagos Fort


Algarve Housing rents villas in the Algarve, and we like to tell you about the Jewel of the Algarve, Lagos. We rent two villas,one Town House and onecountry side farm house called Quinta Alfarobeira. More details later.

Lagos Marina


Lagos is a unique little jewel in the Algarve. It has chosen to develop its tourism with taste and class. It offers a balance of the charm and history of the Portuguese culture with a blend of creature comforts and facilities to please the desires of the most discerning tourist. The warmth of Lagos and her people make it difficult to resist falling in love with this seaside town. I can only say that Lagos has a special something that you feel when you spend time here.

Lagos is a city along the Atlantic Ocean, in the Algarve, south of Portugal. Lagos is an ancient maritime town with more than 2,000 years of history. Moorish and Renaissance, from its fortress to its plethora of magnificent churches. While Lagos’ history is rich, it is the area’s fine beaches and beach bars, such as Bahia Beach Bar and Retiro do Marujo, which attract many of today’s visitors.

Lagos Beach


The beaches around Lagos are some of the most beautiful of the Algarve, like Praia de Dona Ana, which can be reached after a 25 minutes walk from the centre of the town, Praia do Camilo, a bit further on, and Meia Praia, whose sands stretch for 4 km (2.5 miles) east of Lagos. However, it is the promontory named Ponta da Piedade and sheltering the bay of Lagos which is most admired by visitors, with its caves, rocks and wonderfully transparent waters. North of Lagos, Barragem de Bravura is a water reservoir offering fine views

Apart from its animated lifestyle, the one learns that this was a fishing village and that its importance grew under the Arabs, which built several fortifications. It turned into an important naval centre in the age of the Discoveries, in the 15th century; became the capital of the Algarve from 1576 to 1756 and was greatly damaged by the earthquake of 1755; thus its beautiful 18th and 19th century buildings. A fine new marina welcomes boats sailing in from the Atlantic.

Lagos Golf


Famous golf courses, looking over the Atlantic Ocean are all a short drive a way.

Algarve Housing rent a beautiful restored luxury town house in the centre of Lagos, called Casa Urbano, that sleeps 6 in 3 bedrooms, and has a beautiful Roman style private pool.

Quinta Alfarobeira, just outside Lagos, is a rustic farm style villa, that sleeps 4, with private pool in a beautiful garden. Please click on photo gallery (slide show) below to see the pictures and contact me for more details.
