The Algarve, Portugal is the perfect holiday destination because it really does have something for everybody. It's steeped in history, boasts all the modern amenities for a luxury holiday, is very family orientated, has superb sports facilities, and great food.
Everybody knows that the Algarve weather is wonderful! With over 3,000 hours of sunshine per year, the climate is consistently pleasant, with no huge seasonal extremes.
The Algarve is easy to get to, and easy to get around. Flying time from most of Europe is under 3 hours and private airport transfers from Faro to your accommodation are good value and easy to book online. The road system has been considerably improved in recent years which means hiring a car is a great way to explore.
