Wintering in the sun

winter in algarve

With over 3,000 hours of sunshine a year, 100 beaches, 40 golf courses and history dating back more than 2,000 years the Algarve has something for all to enjoy.

The natural parks are full of flora and fauna, there is an international racetrack where you can watch motorsports and also enjoy driving experiences with a karting track close by. We mustn’t forget to mention the plethora of wineries, trails to cycle or walk together with water sports galore and of course the cultural heritage is plentiful.

During the mild winter months, the Algarve is a paradise for those wishing to leave colder climes, with many staying for a month or more at a time taking the opportunity to visit places along the Algarve that perhaps they wouldn’t have time for when visiting in the hotter months.

Life in the Algarve moves at a slower pace than in northern European countries, for example. With the opportunity to cook, eat and spend a lot of time outside it feels so much healthier.

Transport links are up-to-date with Faro international airport offering access to all major European cities all year round and the motorway network giving access to the rest of Portugal and Spain.

Portugal has been fought over since prehistoric times, becoming the country as we know it in the 8thcentury. The Portuguese were great explorers and pioneered maritime exploration, particularly in the Age of Discovery, monopolisng the spice trade and extending its empire across the world. When Macau was handed back to China in 1999 it marked the end of the longest colonial empire in the world but, still today, Portugal’s cultural architectural influence can be seen around the globe.
