With one of the worst winters recorded in British history, maybe it is time to head to warmer climates? The region is maintaining an average temperature of 15 °C this December and with its beaches, golf courses, and interesting history, the Algarve is the perfect winter escape.
The Algarve region is positioned in the south of Portugal
on the Atlantic Ocean and remains the number one get-away for Brits year in year out and it easy to see why! The Algarve region has one of those special qualities of a holiday destination – variety. The region is rightly associated with a world-class nightlife and beautiful beaches, but if you look past the varied coastline with its amazing rock formations, the Algarve offers so much more than the stereotypical beach holiday. Outside of the main resort towns, you will find a region full of vibrant market villages, quaint castles, and a countryside that is second to none with mountains and forests perfect for a bit of R&R.
Whether you are heading to the Algarve for a lively holiday or a relaxed break, a car hire is a must to be able to explore the whole region. Drive to Lagos for its paved promenades and historical port. Or, head east to Tavira for its beautiful churches and Roman architecture. Alternatively for a bit of a longer drive, go north to Monchique. Hidden between two hills, this town has managed to retain its traditional roots and remains un-touched by the tourist resorts.
