Put together the weather, beautifull beaches, lots of activities, value for money and you will be guaranteed the perfect holiday, try the Algarve you will not be disappointed.
The unspoilt fishing village of Alvor is about a five minute walk from the apartment. There are over 60 bars and restaurants serving everything from pizza to International quality cuisine, with many of the harbour side restaurants specializing in freshly caught fish cooked in front of you at an outdoor barbecue. We are more than happy to include a list of our favorites!
An addition to Alvor since 2011 is the Boardwalk which has made the Conservation area accessible and enjoyable. Ideal for that brisk walk or run!
The nearest beach, Alvor Beach, is at Alvor and is about 10 minute’s walk away. It stretches to over three miles of clean golden sand, with safe bathing. There are several beach bars along this stretch of sand serving drinks and good food throughout the day, and evening meals as well. The idyllic Tres Irmaos beach is slightly further away, and can be reached in about 15-20 minutes walk. The Presidents Beach is close to Alto Golf - a five minute drive.
There are a number of supermarkets in Alvor which are fine for basics. The closest supermarket is Intermarche, just minutes from Alto. There is also a Pingo Doce supermarket just outside the village which is good for fresh food. Larger supermarkets such as Continente and Jumbo can be found in Portimao.
For shopping generally Portimao has a better range of shops although many of Portimao shops have relocated to the nearby Aqua Centre. Algarve Shopping on the N125 near Guia is worth a visit. There is a wide range of shops here including Zara and the facilities at this mall include restaurants and cinemas.
Slide and Splash, near Lagoa, about a 20 minute drive from the Apartment, and Zoomarine with dolphins and amusements, near Guia, about a 35 minute drive are wonderful family entertainment.
Out and About
LAGOS is a beautiful town, and is about twenty minutes drive away. There is a good selection of shops, as well as lots of bars and restaurants.
PORTIMAO is more of a commercial centre than a tourist town, but has recently smartened up its waterside areas and is well worth a visit. As stated earlier the Aqua Centre has had an impact on shops in Portimao.
PRAIA DA ROCHA has one of the best beaches on the Algarve, but has been a little bit over developed some years ago. However, if you are looking for some lively night life, this is the place to go. It is a cheap taxi ride from the apartment at Alto.
Between Praia da Rocha and Portimao is another Marina, which is surrounded by recently built bars and restaurants.
MONCHIQUE is a pretty market town about 1,500 above sea level and is well known for its traditional handicrafts. Monichique’s backdrop is the slope of the Sierra de Monichique which in spring and summer has an abundance of colour.
CAPE St Vincent is the most Westerly point in Europe, and reputedly has the most powerful lighthouse in Europe. This bit of coastline is on a par with the Cliffs of Moher for magnificent, rugged coastal scenery. Take a coat, when the wind blows, there is nothing but ocean between you and America!
SAGRES is the last town on the road West towards Cape St Vincent. There are some nice beaches here, but the main attraction is the fortress of Henry the Navigator, parts of which date back to the 15th century.
You are spoilt for choice but here are some to consider within a 30 minute drive of the Apartment.
Alto Golf and Country Club has its own Championship Golf Course – Alto Golf and discounted rates are available to Alto guests. This was the last 18 hole course to be designed by the late Sir Henry Cotton. It boasts all the fine features normally found on a course near the sea including gently rolling fairways, immaculate contoured greens and strategically placed bunkers and water hazards.
A full description of the course is available on www.pestanagolf.com
The friendly clubhouse provides a spacious elegantly appointed bar and restaurant overlooking the 18th green, a well equipped pro shop, and changing rooms. At the driving range there is an excellent golf academy with extensive coaching and practice facilities.
Special rates are available for Alto residents and in summer attractive rates apply for ‘twilight’ golf.
There a several other top quality courses within half an hour’s drive.
The best and best known, of these is undoubtedly Penina. Penina was the first golf course Sir Henry Cotton designed in the Algarve, and Alto Golf was the last.
Another superb local course, just redesigned by Robert Trent Jones, is situated between Alvor and Lagos on a hillside overlooking Lagos bay. Details at www.palmaresgolf.com
Golfe Do Morgado
This has two courses set behind the Penina Courses, halfway to the Monchique hills. Wide open fairways. Fairly level with lots of bunkers protecting the greens. Nice Clubhouse. Generally fairly quiet.
Opened in 2002 this course has two distinctive sections offering an exciting variety of play. Along the course there are great views of the Atlantic.
Vale da Pinta/Quinta do Gramacho
Located in Carvoeiro these are two very popular courses designed by celebrated American, Ronald Fream and Nick Price
