The Algarve is an ideal holiday area on the part of Atlantic coast leading to the Mediterranean. Right in the heart of the Algarve is the lovely area known as Vilamoura. Vilamoura is one of the largest single tourist complexes in Europe and covers some 2.000 hectares of land. Vilamoura is a special place, a unique leisure and recreation resort and community where the pace of life is so easy it feels like summer all year round.
Designed from the start to be self-sufficient, Vilamoura is ideally located, offers the commercial structure for day-to-day needs and is bursting with sporting and leisure facilities for the whole family. It is a place for rest and relaxation but also for pursuing active pastimes and sports; a friendly and safe residential haven, but also a vibrant and exciting night-life centre. It is Portuguese, but also truly cosmopolitan. Away from the hectic pace and the stress of the modern world, all who visit are revitalised by the lifestyle, the convenience and the hospitality of this truly special place.
The climate is one of the healthiest and most pleasant in the world with a likeness to the Californian climate. There is sufficient seasonal variation so as not to make it boring, winters are never too cold and summers never too hot, with skies predominantly blue all year round. The Algarve has managed to retain its’ old world’ charm and traditional values. Portugal is an ambitious, forward-looking nation who are friendly and open, with a good understanding of English. So whether you are looking for a place to relax or prefer to indulge your every active interest, the Algarve offers it all! The only things we don’t have that you may find in Spain, Italy, France and Greece are sweltering summers, pollution and high crime!
Vilamoura offers two great beaches, one on either side of the Marina. Both are on the flat and are therefore very easily accessible. The busier of the two beaches is Marina Beach to the east of the Marina where you can hire sun beds, parasols, and take advantage of the beach bars. From this golden sandy beach you can paddle in the surf all the way to the neighbouring resort of Quarteira, where there is a weekly Gypsy Market every Wednesday morning. You can barter for bargains in leather, shoes, clothes and handicrafts. On the western side of the Marina is Falesia Beach where real enthusiasts can stroll all the way along to the beaches of Albufeira.
