Overview of Algarve Hills
The picturesque Algarve hills offer a unique insight into the popular region, perfect for explorers looking to venture off the beaten path. This incredible part of Portugal is a hidden gem and perfect for those looking to escape the beaches and tourists for a few hours, or even for longer in one of our luxury villas.
Algarve Hills and Surroundings
Behind the coastal strip and beyond citrus groves and fertile farmland, the Portuguese countryside rises, and the quiet country roads lead to unspoilt hillside villages and towns such as the beautiful Sant Barbara de Nexe and Estoi.
Despite being away from the hustle and bustle of the coastal resorts, these areas still have excellent and reliable access to beaches. Their main attraction, though, is their rustic ambience, with bars and restaurants offering delicious local food and countryside with superb views around every corner.
Many of our villas in the Algarve Hills share these stunning views. Sit back and relax with a glass of local Portuguese wine and watch the sun set into the Atlantic.
The traditional town of Loule has a weekly market, making it a magnet for locals and visitors alike. It’s the perfect place to drink in the atmosphere and shop for fresh produce and beautiful pottery. Loule has the best of both worlds, perfect for those looking for a peaceful holiday near a lively town.
One of the towns up in the Algarve Hills, Silves, is home to cobbled streets and an ancient castle which overlooks the landscape and the River Arade. The castle is open to the public, so make sure you don’t leave the Algarve without visiting.
