Algarve - The sunniest part of Europe
The Algarve region in Portugal is often associated with the stunning and dramatic rocky coast, which it is so famous for. This exciting part of the Algarve stretches all the way from Faro to Cabo de Sao Vincente, the most southern corner of Europe. East of Faro lies a more traditional coastline, which stretches to the Spanish border. This is an area of incredible natural beauty, with its very own flora and fauna. The picturesque beaches in this area overflow with fine white and golden sand, the perfect conditions for relaxing and swimming, and many of NOVASOL’s self catering holiday homes are right on the coastline. The Algarve is one of the most popular holiday destinations in Portugal, and we have a wide selection of self catering holiday villas spread throughout the region. Visit the local markets, where locally produced honey, wine, and bread are common delicacies, or take a walk down the harbour in one of the many quaint fishing villages. A holiday home let’s you experience the Algarve on your own terms, and gives you complete free reign to explore the region as you wish. Faro and Ria Formosa are the most southwestern cities in Europe. Some parts of the area can only be reached by either ferry or water-taxi, and being out on the water is often a great experience. Oranges are grown all over the Algarve, and you will almost always stumble upon a few trees on your trips around the region. The Algarve boasts a great mix of both stony and sandy beaches, which are considered some of the very best in Europe. If you are interested in the areas historical background, you will be delighted to hear that the Roman influence on the area is very strong, and can clearly be seen in many ancient bridges and monuments in the region. All in all, the Algarve is a delightful destination for a family holiday, and with a NOVASOL holiday home, there is space for everyone.
