Holidays to the Algarve
Located in the southernmost part of Portugal, the Algarve has long been a popular destination with British holidaymakers. Families snap up bargain holidays to the Algarve resorts like Albufeira, for the beaches and water parks, while fun-loving singles book Algarve cheap holiday offers near the capital of Faro. Trendy sophisticates head for resorts like Vilamoura, while those wanting quiet, traditional Algarve package holidays seek out pretty fishing villages like Bordeira. Whatever your taste in Algarve holidays, we at Co-operative Travel have the perfect deal for you.
An Algarve holiday offers endless variety and scope. One of Europe’s top golfing destinations, older couples book cheap Algarve holidays off-season, either at the purpose-built sports resorts, or in areas like Vale de Lobo. Here, you have a choice of fabulous international courses, as well as golden beaches and cliff top views.
With 100 miles of beautiful coastline and 300 days of sunshine a year, there’s no shortage of last minute Algarve holidays. The capital, Faro, was originally a sleepy fishing village which rapidly developed into a cosmopolitan city. Today, it is home to the Algarve international airport and countless purpose-built holiday resorts to the west towards Albufeira – a major source of Algarve package holidays.
Many of the fashionable modern resorts in the Algarve developed from tiny fishing villages, which are still evident behind the modern hotels lining the seafront. To experience the ‘real’ Algarve, however, look for late deals in Algarve resorts like Carvoeiro. This friendly family resort offers everything from snorkelling to cliff-top walks and has a superb golf course. Young singles, meanwhile, look for cheap Algarve holidays in Lagos, which boasts spectacular beaches and a vibrant nightlife, as well as history and culture. Olhos D’Agua, a traditional fishing village not far from Albufeira, is popular with families and couples alike.
Throughout the year, we at Coop Travel have bargain holidays in all Algarve areas. From secluded cliff top villas, to purpose-built resorts, we have Algarve package holidays to suit your needs.
