Our favourite towns and villages in the Algarve where you will find our small boutique hotels and villas
The Algarve, Portugal's southernmost province, is known for its beautiful coastline with warm beaches and gentle waves compared to the rest of the country. In addition to its stunning beaches, the region is home to numerous sandy islets, salt marshes, rugged cliffs and coves with mysterious grottoes and unique rock formations.
Where to stay in the Western Algarve
In both the eastern and western Algarve, you will find unspoilt and enchanting beaches. The south coast is characterised by steep cliffs plunging into the crystal blue sea. On the west coast, where the Atlantic Ocean is wilder, you will discover extensive beaches, some of which are virtually untouched. In addition, the Monchique region, in the mountains, offers a calm and serene atmosphere. We cannot fail to mention the state-protected Vicentine Algarve coast, where you will find the Carrapateira area with magnificent beaches, some of them practically deserted. However, be aware that the sea can be colder and rougher in this area.
We have selected beautiful beachfront hotels in Sagres, where the wind blows a little stronger, charming bed & breakfasts in the picturesque town of Silves, elegant design and luxury hotels in Lagos, a city with a beautiful harbour. In addition, you will find beautiful holiday homes and luxury villas in the western Algarve. Whether you are travelling as a family, on a romantic getaway or simply with friends, we have something for everyone. Take a look at our guide for more information.
Where to stay in the Eastern Algarve
In the eastern Algarve, you'll find long sandy beaches and beautiful coastal towns. Of particular note is the fascinating Ria Formosa Natural Park, a vast estuary that stretches from the city of Faro almost to the Spanish border. Many towns in the eastern Algarve have escaped mass tourism and remain hidden gems. Tavira, with its charming bed & breakfasts and boutique hotels, is one of the most beautiful. Another authentic and unforgettable experience is to stay in an elegant flat or luxury holiday home in the old fishing village of Olhão. Tavira and Olhão are perfect for those who want the convenience of being close to the beach and, at the same time, have access to the city's offer of restaurants, shops and activities.
