Algarve: Your Top Summer Destination in 2021

12.05.2021

The amazing Algarve offers clean beaches, fresh air, and fantastic and open countryside. A shining jewel set on the south coast of Portugal is one of Europe's most fantastic holiday destinations.

The things that have made the Algarve such a popular destination over the years are even more important now. After all, its climate deliveries daily doses of vitamin D and sunlight to lift our spirits; healthy, locally sourced food to enjoy; small villages and open spaces to explore and clean air to breathe; amazing caves to discover, ancient castles and pretty churches to explore, endless beaches to stroll, among other fabulous perks.

Let's unveil it all! 

 

Private Villas

Holidaying in a private villa is always a great option. A home from home, you share your holiday villa only with your travel companions, with days spent by the pool and evenings spent enjoying relaxing outdoor meals. In your private villa, you can request concierge services, in which they will take care of the details of your stay so you don’t have to leave the villa anymore than you want to. You can also add a shopping service in which the shopping can be brought to you.

One great option for some private villas is the amazing VILA VITA Collection that offers some amazing ocean-front villas near Albufeira and at the small and tranquil fishing village of Salema as well as villas located within the resort itself. All are beautifully styled and offer a level of quality and service. And all have the most amazing sea-front locations, just a few steps, literally, from beautiful beaches.

 

Private Drivers ou Private Transfers 

If a private transfer or a private driver is what you wish to ensure that you travel only with your family or travel group, you don't need to worry, since this is one of our main services that are always included and at your disposal.

They are instructed to follow the guidelines from the Portuguese authorities regarding coronavirus with limited capacity in each vehicle and passengers can travel only in the rear seats, not next to the driver. Also, they guarantee the cleaning of each vehicle before and after each service. They supply masks and hand sanitizers on board and the drivers are monitored for symptoms before working.

 

Fine Dining

The fine-dining scene in Algarve is recognized for its excellence in food, service, and ambiance. There are some awarded Michelin star restaurants, such as Ocean. Holder of not one, but two, Michelin stars and consider one of the gastronomic jewels of the region you will find a haven of stylish and elegant luxury.

Overlooking the Atlantic ocean, the insides intimate with a fantastic décor that contrasts beautifully with the modern, sleek cuisine produced by Chef Hans Neuner and his team. The menu is focused on the fresh and seasonal produce of the Algarve with particular attention to the wonderful seafood, with the chef applying haute cuisine techniques to the local produce.

 

Beaches

The Algarve is worldwide famous for its magnificent beaches. They are beautiful and varied, from long expanses of fine sand to picturesque and secluded cove beaches.

Some are only accessible from the sea which ensures they are less frequented, others are so vast that social distancing is not an issue. 

 

Open-air Activities 

Many of the fantastic activities of this region are open-air activities thanks to the wonderful climate. With clean air to breathe and plenty of vitamin D to absorb, being outdoors is just superb and will create amazing and lasting memories.



Boat trips and kayak tours are especially popular in the region. The amazing coastline, such as the wonderous grottoes of Ponta da Piedade and the amazing Benagil cave, is best enjoyed by the sea. A great tip? Explore the coast in a fantastic private yacht, in which you will enjoy the sea breeze, the warm sunshine, stunning views, and why not also add a lunch or a breakfast onboard? All of this will be good both for your physical and mental health after these stressful months.

Besides these, amazing coastline activities, there are also some superb trails to explore the countryside and coastal routes on foot or by bike. Enjoy these fantastic walks and at the same time some scenic views.
