Discover self-catering villas and hotels in Algarve, Portugal
Lagos, in the western Algarve, is one of the region’s main towns, founded on centuries of seafaring – it is as popular as central Albufeira, a lively port town with family-friendly beaches east and west, although not as big as city-by-the-sea Faro, the area’s centrestage capital. Sagres offers a more traditional slice of Portugal on the Algarve's westernmost tip. Super-groomed golf courses provide the greenery nearer the coast, but inland the Algarve is also home to cork forests, nature reserves and pretty hilltop villages such as Monchique, Alte and mediaeval Silves. Make the most of your coastal location to indulge in superb seafood and sun-blessed rosés.
