Feel the light in the Algarve... On the beaches, in the climate and in the hospitality!!

The beaches in the Algarve, with their red cliffs, are a delight!! The little fishing villages and the wealth of fresh fish and seafood make this a must for our visitors. You'll find sun and light all year long, beaches, golf, museums and castles...

The almond sweets, the white houses with their ornate chimneys, are the result of the region's rich history, filled with Moorish influences and castles.
