Destination guide

Check out beaches and nightlife from an Albufeira villa

The southern coastal city of Albufeira is a wonderful resort town for villas in Portugal. Albufeira has become a top holiday destination because of the warm weather that's perfect for a beach trip as well as an emerging nightlife scene. Locals and visitors to Albufeira frequent the marina for fishing excursions or to charter a boat to see dolphins. The beach stretches across most of the town's waterfront, but there are also scenic cliffs jutting out into the ocean that are covered in trees for a lovely dark-green backdrop to the light-blue sky.

Things to do

Sightseeing near Albufeira holiday lettings

Roman or Moorish, Visigoth or Almohad, take your pick. Albufeira sits in a seriously-diverse and cultured region of southern Portugal. Take the postcard-worthy town of Silves. Just a short drive from the doorstep of any Albufeira holiday rental, it's topped with a mighty castelo, thought to date back more than 2,000 years and home to a fascinating on-site museum. In the other direction are the ruins of Cerro da Vila. Head there to wander through the remains of an old Roman mansion that was built during the age of the Caesars.


Things to do near Albufeira holiday homes

Albufeira is a perfect base for exploring the wonderful southern Algarve. Hire a car and hit the open coast roads to find yourself weaving between shimmering yellow beaches, gravity-defying hoodoos rising from the sea and picture-perfect whitewashed villages. Just as you have the whole family wide-eyed with the views, you can pull over and discover your very own little cove where the sands glow ochre under the sun. Hop on a cruiser to see dolphins gliding through the water out at sea or hike along the clifftops for secluded glimpses of salt-washed bays, the choice is yours.


Climate during your stay in Albufeira holiday homes

Albufeira is one of the sunniest places in mainland Portugal thanks to its position on the edge of the Atlantic, right in the south of the country. Temperatures tend to get beach-worthy around May, which is perfect if you're pining to pull on your swimming trunks before the summer starts in earnest. Summer is when most folk look to bag Albufeira holiday rentals overlooking the sands or in the Old Town, eager to enjoy the scorching highs of 30 degrees and guaranteed rays. Like spring, autumn is great for bargains by the beach so why not pay a visit in September or October?
