Algarve Holidays Info
Algarve is becoming one of the most popular destinations with over 200 km of
golden beaches and golf courses that are being recognized internationally. The
Algarve has more than 300 days of sunshine a year and temperatures that hardly
ever drop below 150C. Traditionally built Algarve villas can be seen
all over this region, from coastal villas with sea immense views and easy
walkways to beaches, to typical countryside houses set in the hills.
Moorish influence can still be seen in the history of the Algarve. It extends from Cape St. Vincent in the west to Rio Guadiana on the east and is the most south-westerly region of Europe. The origin of the name Algarve even comes from the Moorish term for this area, ‘Al-Gharb’ meaning the land to the west.
This region has managed to keep hold of its character and attraction in the face of growing tourism and development.
