The Portuguese Algarve is a true meeting point of the European mainland and the coast of Africa. The landscape has an exotic appeal that sees fig trees and orange groves nestling amid the vineyards that line the hillsides and lead down to the dramatic cliffs that line the shores of the Atlantic, complete with their golden sands and rock formations that define this beautiful part of the world.
Best known of the Algarve resorts is the charming town of Albufeira dating back to Roman times. Until the tourist boom of the 1960’s and 70’s, Albufeira was little more than a fishing village with breathtaking scenery and unspoilt coastline; although now booming, it still retains that magical appeal that first brought it into the spotlight. This is a resort that is not just a tourist town. Authentically Portuguese, immerse yourself in the local culture for an experience that delivers more than just sun and the sea.
