If you’ve been sat looking out of your window wishing for summer to hurry up, why not load up your laptop and jet away somewhere hot for a few days instead.
With stunning weather, history and food you’ll want to eat for the rest of your life, the Algarve is somewhere you simply have to visit and enjoy before you die. So, why not grab yourself the ideal holiday home with a villa from the likes of Villa Plus, and enjoy a wondrous trip away from the grey skies.
Below, we’ve listed some things that make the Algarve a simply must visit destination.
With the jagged faces of soaring cliffs and deep caves just waiting to be explored, the views of the Algarve are on another level. Places like the Benagil Cave and the Arcos de Marinha are a few spots filled with delightfully romantic alcoves, while the cliff faces of Sagres are some of the wildest around.
It goes without saying that you wouldn’t go on holiday without the guarantee of wonderful weather. However, you still run the risk of a chill or a little rain in some places. But the Algarve enjoys sunny days throughout the year, with consistently mild temperatures. This means that even in the winter it’s rare for air temperatures to drop below 10 degrees.
If it’s history you want, then you’re in luck. This is a place filled with it, meaning you’ll encounter a bit of the country’s history with every turn of a corner. One thing you’ll find plenty of is castles and cathedrals, displaying stunning historic architecture, alongside a selection of ruins and museums. Some of the more popular places to visit are the Silves Castle and the Se Cathedral.
With fresh ingredients used for every plate, you’ll be treated to multiple flavoursome combinations, and Mediterranean touches at every meal. Make sure you tuck into the selection of fish dishes, something the area prides itself on due to its closeness to the coast.
The End of The Night
While the nightlife is filled with fun to be had, it’s the end of the night that’ll truly wow you. As the sun sets each night, you’ll be treated to a fabulous mixture of colours as the sun descends into the shimmering waters that surround you – a beauty that needs to be seen to be believed. The sunrise is equally as impressive – so make sure you see it at least once during your stay.
