The Algarve enjoys the best climate in Europe. With only a short period of rain (between November and March) and long hours of sunshine (the highest average in Europe). During the summer months, temperatures are high, with sea water around 22 ° C.


The Algarve climate is influenced by continental Europe, North Africa, the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. Average temperatures in the Algarve vary between 15ºC and 31ºC, almost never dropping below zero in the winter months.

The Algarve is also known for its unique contrast between the golden coast and the beautiful countryside, its many historic sites and thousands of species of flora and fauna.

How to travel to the Algarve

Due to their location, surrounded by land and sea, resorts in the Algarve enjoy good transport connections. Several international airlines, including low cost carriers, regularly fly to the Algarve via Faro Airport.
The Algarve also benefits from a recently modernized road network, making road travel through the region easier. Train travelers in the region have easy access to the Portuguese rail service (CP - Comboios de Portugal), which connects the Algarve to the rest of Portugal and beyond.


Your Holidays in Albufeira

Albufeira is one of the most famous tourist cities in Portugal in the district of Faro. Since the 1960s, when it became popular as a holiday destination with tourists from northern Europe, it has developed from a picturesque fishing village to a bustling holiday resort. Its history dates back to Roman times, when it was known as "Baltum". The Moors, who occupied the city in the 8th century, called it Al-Buhera, which means "The Castle on the Sea".
Albufeira, which is just a forty-minute drive from the Algarve International Airport, Faro, can be divided into two main areas of interest: the old town of Albufeira and the new town of Albufeira.


Vilamoura, The Best Golf Destination

The village of Vilamoura, recently voted the main golf destination in Europe, is just a 15 minute drive east of Albufeira, and there are also some good quality golf courses close to the center of Albufeira.
