Posted on October 25, 2012 | No CommentsThe Algarve is a popular holiday destination for many reasons – it’s beautiful beaches, glorious coastline, high-quality golf courses and year-round sunshine. If you’re planning to stay in a villa during your time in Portugal, check out the following three destinations. Praia da Luz Come here if you want a lazy beach break. Praia da Luz is actually the name of the beach that lines the seashore near the fishing village of Luz. It’s quite an undeveloped, sleepy spot, which makes it perfect if all you want from your villa holiday is to relax and unwind in peace and quiet. The beach itself is a long strip of golden sand, which is backed by towering cliffs. Families will love this part of coastline, as there’s plenty to keep kids of all ages occupied. Young children can splash in the calm sea and build sandcastles, while teenagers may want to have...
Posted on September 24, 2012 | No CommentsAll too often we get caught up in our busy lives, rushing around rather than relaxing. So, when my friends announce they’re having their hen weekend abroad, I’m always glad of the excuse to book some time off work and jet off somewhere sunny! The Algarve, in Portugal, is perfect for hen parties. It’s a classy place that boasts an amazing climate (lots of sun!), chic bars, great shopping and lots of beaches to chill out on. It’s popular with families, keen golfers and celebrities for these reasons and more, so you know you’ll enjoy a classy trip when you come here with the girls. Obviously, the Algarve takes up a large part of Portugal, although I’d recommend Albufeira as a good base. It’s got a bustling nightlife, a huge choice of restaurants and plenty of activities to be enjoyed, so is the ideal destination for pre-wedding celebrations. Some of...
Posted on September 16, 2012 | No CommentsThe Algarve is one of the premier destinations in Portugal for a beach getaway. As visitors from around the world flock to the region for an escape, many of the Algarve’s most popular beaches become crowded. Yet, even close to popular resorts and holiday destinations such as Faro, Lagos, and Albufeira, you can find secluded and less frequented beaches throughout the Algarve. These tranquil beaches offer the best of the Algarve, including abundant sunshine, pristine waters, and picturesque sandy beaches. Best of all, these hidden wonders offer an untamed and remote experience for an unforgettable beach holiday. Vale dos Homens Photo by: http://www.flickr.com/photos/36680511@N04/3384972096/ Located near the town of Rogil, the Vale dos Homens beach is a quiet retreat from the popular resorts found in the western city of Lagos.

Posted on April 30, 2012 | No CommentsThis article was written by Algarve Life Stripped Naked: If I head down to V-Town with my friends this is our main port of call. The location is right on the fabulous Vilamoura Marina, close to the Tivoli Hotel. If billion pound views are your thing, then this is THE location to be, from small sleek racing yachts to giant gin palaces abound. I am here early evening, my favourite time of day as the sun is setting. Already the sky is taking on a fabulous crimson hue. Families, couples, golfers, and expatriates that have ﬁnished work are coming into the bar and the restaurant at the 19th Hole. In amongst their merriment, they watch the day turn to night, as do I. As a single diner, I do not feel lonely. Hollie, the totally barmy Vasco, and Maria (Vascoʼs mum) take turns in keeping me company and regaling tales and ditties of what has happened since I last...

Posted on February 26, 2012 | No CommentsIn tough economic times, the holiday market needs to keep an unwavering eye on price, and no region has achieved this more successfully than Portugal’s Algarve. In fact, despite the area’s enduring popularity, prices are consistently lower than those in the UK and other parts of Europe. This southernly region of Portugal has been in vogue with Brits since the seventies. They particularly appreciate the constant sunshine and the sandy beaches. Furthermore, and contrary to less popular Portuguese regions, the Algarve has adapted to the massive amount of foreign tourists visiting every year and nowadays English is spoken in most places. Whereas rental prices in the UK and other parts of Europe are often very high, the Algarve remains affordable. The region vies with its pricier counterparts for the custom of the young and budget conscious, drawn by a vibrant nightlife. Albufeira offers a range of accommodation within easy...
