One of the Algarve’s oldest resorts, this chilled-out coastal town between Faro and Albufeira is a little slice of paradise on Portugal’s southern coast. A villa holiday here is all about relaxation, with golden sands, breath-taking scenery, and a vibrant culture. With sun, sea, and sand galore - Quarteira makes for an idyllic beach getaway.
Home to blissful beaches packed with sun loungers, afternoons spent relaxing in the sunshine are at the top of the itinerary. Wander along the sun-kissed promenade, which stretches over two kilometres, and is lined with open-air cafes and restaurants serving up mouth-watering Portuguese dishes. If you have food on your mind, soak up the buzz at one of the traditional food markets, where you can buy the catch of the day from local fishermen and find local goodies to cook for dinner.
For more action, Faro is just a ten-minute drive down the coast and is overflowing with history and activities. Wander around its impressive old town and gaze at ancient churches and traditional whitewashed buildings. The modern marina is a fantastic spot for dinner - lined with chic restaurants, buzzing bars and a lively nightlife.
