Paradoxically, the Western Algarve holidays will take you to both the busiest and the most remote beaches in the Algarve. From Carvoeiro to Lagos, you will find busy family resorts packed with sunbeds and water-sports centers that rent jet-skis. But around the coast on the Costa Vicentina, the steep cliffs and deserted beaches facing the wild Atlantic attract experienced surfers. Head out from your Algarve villa to delve deeper and you will discover a Roman, Moorish, and seafaring past that has left a rich crop of remains, from the castle at Silves to the fortress at Cabo de São Vicente. The long, sandy beach at Praia da Luz is sheltered by rocky cliffs, and popular with families. East of Lagos lies Alvor, where you can take boat trips to nearby caves or enjoy lazy days on the beach and lunches at any of several waterfront restaurants. Praia da Rocha and Ferragudo are perfect for a beginner’s class in sea kayaking, snorkelling, or windsurfing, but if you can handle the bigger waves head beyond Sagres to the Costa Vicentina.
Set on a small private estate overlooking sandy Praia Grande beach, this charming villa offers tranquil Atlantic Ocean views, with the large furnished terrace the perfect place to watch the sun set with a glass of wine, or over dinner from the barbeque. The gardens lead down to the private pool and patio area, with a gentle stroll a little further through the gardens taking you to the beach, accessed by a gate. Formerly a beekeeper’s cottage, the house has been completely refurbished into a modern and contemporary one-level beach villa. Well-equipped, with beach-chic interiors, the property is decorated in neutral colors throughout, with fun pops of color
The open plan living area with dining table and kitchen leads out to a terrace through glass doors. The living area has a lovely fireplace, and the property also has air-conditioning for warmer days. There is an en suite double bedroom and two further twin bedrooms. The shower rooms are finished to an extremely high standard. This is an ideal property for family beach holidays, or for those wanting to play golf on one of the area’s many courses. The charming waterside village of Ferragudo, with its shops and restaurants, is only a short walk along the beach, and the larger town of Portimӓo is just 6km from the property.
