Introducing The Algarve
The Moors called their al-Gharb the Sunset Land. Blessed with a mild winter climate and sunny disposition, Portugal's playground province remains one of the most popular year round holiday destinations in Southern Europe.
Lively coastal resorts spill over ribbons of golden sand in sharp contrast to the quiet villages of the hills and hinterland where history and tradition in abundance continue.
Add to this the friendly Portuguese people, many who speak excellent English, delectable cuisine, wine, beer, port and sunshine and you have the recipe for a wonderful holiday destination
