Explore Algarve with Elegant Resorts
A shining jewel set on the south coast of Portugal, the Algarve enjoys a massive 3,000 hours of sunshine a year and is one of Europe's most popular holiday destinations. Gorgeous sandy beaches range from secluded coves to sweeping bays. Inland, quaint villages barely touched by tourism, with traces of Moorish architecture still intact, punctuate the landscape. Sporting facilities here are excellent, with watersports, tennis and horse-riding all widely available. The piéce de résistance, however, has to be the superb choice of championship golf courses, which are considered by many to be amongst the best in the world. As night falls, buzzing restaurants serve mouthwatering seafood dishes and traditional Portuguese specialities, washed down, of course, by both local and international wines. You might like to hire a car during your stay so that you can explore further afield - this region really does have plenty to offer and is the perfect choice for couples and families.
