Algarve - The Best European Holiday Destination

One of the best European holiday destinations. A magnificent coastline with nature-blessed lovely beaches, delicious cuisine at reasonable prices, stunning landscapes, sunny Mediterranean climate… Sounds enough to be the most popular region of Portugal. But A2z challenges you to discover a different Algarve…

Located in the country’s southernmost region, there is no better idyllic destination for the perfect holidays than Algarve. From crowded cities with restaurants, shops and markets to traditional whitewashed villages and picturesque fishing towns, Algarve has it all. Mountain, “barrocal” and, of course, a pristine coastline that attracts thousands of national and foreigners tourists for holidays every year. That´s right, 300 days of sunshine per year... But the “Sun and Sea Holidays”, once the only reason for visiting Algarve, is over. Nowadays is possible to experience a different Algarve.

Portugal A2Z invites you to explore Algarve in its most natural and beautiful form, by walking or mountain-biking through the strawberry tree-covered Serra de Monchique mountain range, the ancient pathways of the local shepherds and experiencing traditional aromas and flavors only found in the highest mountain in the south of Portugal.
