Praia da Luz Portugal

Algarve

The Algarve, Portugal with its endless beaches, impeccable golf courses and wonderful climate is the perfect holiday destination. Rich in history, the quaint and the luxurious side by side, the natural beauty, great food and warm welcome charm all visitors.

Situated on the extreme South of Portugal, this part of the territory was the last to be conquered from the Moors by the Portuguese king in 1292. Traces of the Moorish presence are still seen in its unique architecture – terraces, chimneys and whitewashed houses.

However, the distance that was difficult to cover back in the 13th century is no longer an obstacle thanks to the modern Lisbon-Albufeira-Castro Marim road (IP1) or Faro international airport. So why not visit this charming region, with its idyllic .

temperatures which are ideal for playing golf and other sports. In the northern part of the Algarve, the hills of Espinhação de Cão, Monchique and Caldeirão shelter the coast from strong winds. This brightly coloured region, with its fig trees, orange groves and almond trees in blossom, is also the most verdant and fertile. The southern coastline consists of a long stretch of fabulous sandy beaches, broken up by extraordinary rugged cliffs and fantastic grottoes.

The Algarve has something for everyone. Roman ruins, Moorish castles and traditional villages. An amazing coastline and ideal conditions for water sports. Over 30 top class golf courses. Nature trails and parks. Kids theme parks and an international motor racing circuit. A vast choice of restaurants, bars and clubs. With the naturally courteous Portuguese as hosts, over 300 days of sunshine per year, delicious local gastronomy and great wines, a visit here is a memorable experience.
