Be taken by Loulé

Wander the cobbled plazas of Loulé and you'll feel truly immersed in the character of the Algarve. A traditional farmers' market can often be found bustling in the alcoves and down the narrow streets, while elaborate baroque frontispieces merge with whitewashed cottages to create a place that's a fine break from sun-splashed beaches. Loulé vacation rentals come in all sorts. Whether you're after a traditional stone cottage in the old center or a luxurious family villa in the surrounding hills, there's bound to be something to suit.

Things to do

Castle tops above the market in Loulé

You'll want to set aside time to tour the crenellated keeps and towers of the formidable Castle of Loulé. It's an official National Monument of Portugal, with a story that goes back all the way to Roman times. You can stride along the great fortifications and look down from the battlements, while channeling your inner warrior. Inside the castle's grounds is where you'll discover the Loulé Municipal Museum, chronicling life in the rural Algarve and the prehistory of the city itself.

Activities

When Loulé comes alive

The streets of old Loulé may be usually sleepy and quiet, but they burst into life on the weekends when the Saturday farmers' market comes to town. The appearance of pungent cheese stalls, enticing chocolatiers, stacks of dried fruit and tasty veg pulls in people from all over the Algarve. Others will plan their trip for the wintertime, when there is an altogether different event – the pre-Lenten Loulé Carnival. That sees the streets erupt with flashes of Brazilian-esque dancing and flamboyant parades. And then there's the Noite Branca, when white-clad revelers fill the city to celebrate the end of summer.

Weather

Algarvian sun douses Loulé

Loulé, like the rest of the Algarve, is one of the sunniest places in Portugal. It gets soaring temperatures and plenty of rays during the summer months, between June and August. That's when you might want to limit your accommodation search to Loulé vacation rentals with a pool, to cool off in. Booking for the Loulé Carnival means coming in mid-to-late winter – the season runs between November and March. That season is considerably colder and there's much more of a chance of rain.

Natural features

Springs and green hills around Loulé

Loulé vacation rentals are a ticket to the more rustic side of the Algarve. They're set in the countryside, back from the sandy beachfront of Quarteira – a top choice for those seeking rays and swimming spots – and offer doorstep access to the green hills and low ridges that roll on for miles. Just north of the city is the Fonte Benemola national park. You can head there to wander between beautiful pockets of lilac-hued orchids and swaying trees. Right at the reserve's heart is a natural spring that babbles forth from the ground and tumbles over short waterfalls, no matter the season.
