Amazing…aromas…azure…attractive...and affordable. Welcome to the Algarve, a most outstanding holiday destination in Portugal that is one of the last in Europe to still maintain a strong value (believe it or not!) It’s 100 miles of crystalline coastline, with 25 golf courses, and over 300 days of sunshine a year. It’s as peaceful or as cosmopolitan as you want it to be, with no lack of the vibrant all-nighter nightlife scene you’d also expect in an European seaside locale. Oh, and let’s talk about the food…the freshest fish straight from the sea to your plate, from charming beach shacks to gourmet restaurants, to dining in caves and no trip is complete without a sardine sandwich fresh off the grill.

We adore the Villa Sol Vilamoura Spa & Golf Resort, a relaxing retreat that’s self-contained in its own nature preserve and just minutes away from great shopping and the chic Villa Sol Beach Club, to which guests have private access. And, when you’re done beaching it for the day, the resort’s luxurious spa offers a menu of world-class spiritually-inspired treatments.
We especially recommend the Villa accommodations, offering the exclusive feel of a private home, set in a private enclave complete with lush greenery, 3 pools, a bar and elegant décor.
