The Algarve is home to over 130 beaches of various sizes. The stunning golden sandy beaches are a place where you can relax and listen to the Atlantic waves. Or you can enjoy some fantastic water sports from jet skiing to the more sedate pedalo boats.

With over 300 days of sunshine a year, it’s a great location for topping up your vitamin D. With so many sunny days, it’s a perfect location for those who enjoy the outdoor lifestyle. There are some fabulous walks and activities. Sports lovers have lots of choices including golf, tennis, padel, swimming, and running.

The Algarve also has some lovely traditional Portuguese towns and villages for you to explore, whether it’s purely for shopping or a day out sightseeing. Explore to quaint cobbled streets, known in Portugal as ‘calcada’, and enjoy the Portugueses delicacies such as the famous Pastal de Nata (Custard tarts).

Choosing the perfect location is just as important as choosing the perfect villa. With so many years living in the Algarve, we can guide you and help you make the right choices to suit you and your family.
