In the Algarve one is spoilt for choice. Once you visit the Algarve there is no turning back. You are captivated! The Algarve has always been a superb choice for holidays and for long term residence as it is a great location for families; children, teenagers and adults alike, who all love the multifarious activities that the region has to offer. The Algarve includes around 200km of golden coastline, which showcases fabulous sandy beaches and sandstone cliffs, and also some 50 kilometres of attractive rural inland terrain. The Algarve is an ideal choice for those who appreciate nature and the tranquility that comes with it. The beautiful beaches and the aquamarine calm seas are the recognised and iconic features of the region and being so convenient to hotels and resorts, visitors are spoilt for choice on which beach to spend the day.
The temperate Mediterranean climate is also a major attraction for visitors and residents. The Algarve has the most perfect climate in all of Europe. It averages some 300 days of sunshine each year; does not suffer from climate extremes; and has four definite seasons. In other words, an extremely pleasant, liveable climate.
The fabulous range of sporting facilities available are another reason for holidaymakers to visit the Algarve. It is well known that the Algarve has some of the best golf courses in the world, which is why it is such a popular destination for golfers. But what is less well known is that surfing, tennis, horse riding, hiking and even extreme sports, such as rock climbing, are amongst of the other sports and activities that can also be easily found and pursued in the Algarve.
In the Algarve we are further spoilt when it comes to cuisine. The produce is always fresh and organic. Fresh fish arrives daily to the local markets and fresh fruits and vegetables are readily available in local markets. The most popular and picturesque markets to visit include those of Quarteira, Olhão, Tavira, Sagres and Portimão (which is where local fishing boats have docked for centuries, supplying the best sardines in all Portugal!). The Algarve has an abundance of excellent restaurants that offer a variety of different world cuisines, with exquisite dishes and services you would find it difficult to match elsewhere.
There is no denying that the Algarve is a number one choice for holidaymakers, and with all that it has to offer, it is also one of the best places in all of Europe for people to live and make their home.
