Central Algarve

An eclectic mix of world famous luxury resorts and traditional Portuguese towns, central Algarve remains the heart of the Algarve region with beautiful beaches and coastlines.

Central Algarve is home to the "Golden Triangle", a prestigious area between Faro and Albufeira, host to three world famous holiday and golf resorts: Quinta do Lago, Vale do Lobo and Vilamoura. These three resorts have cemented the Algarve's reputation as one of the best golf destinations in the world. Just as popular is the beach resort of Albufeira, which features vibrant wildlife and several gorgeous beaches.

Not just resorts and tourism, central Algarve is also home to traditional towns like Sao Bras de Alportel and Loule, which are popular with British ex pats. Just as beautiful is the Ria Formosa National Park, a natural reserve that extends from Faro to Tavira.

With a variety of well-developed resorts, central Algarve still retains its natural beauty and authentic splendour all across the region.

How to Get There

The beauty of the central Algarve region is in its accessibility from the Faro airport, with many of the main resorts and towns all within a 30-minute drive from Faro airport, one of the reasons the central Algarve is popular with families.

To reach Faro city from the airport it's a 10-15 minute drive or taxi ride, with the rest of the Algarve region opening up once you've arrived at Faro City's bus or train stations.

Climate

Receiving more sun each year than California, central Algarve is a hotbed for beach lovers, especially in the summertime. With fairly low wind speed compared to the western Algarve region, the summers in central Algarve are long and dry, with up to twelve hours of sunshine a day.

As for the winter months, temperatures sit at around 11°C to 18°C, making for a fairly warm winter season. The shorter days and increased rainfall will bring less sunlight, however, there are days in which temperatures reach as high as 20°C in the sunlight.

Be Sure Not to Miss

Ria Formosa National Park – It's no surprise that this national reserve was recently elected one of Portugal's seven natural wonders, with its spectacular coastal lagoons and wetlands making it a paradise for nature lovers and bird watchers. From guided walks to kayak trips through the lagoon, this national reserve has something for everyone.

Faro - The capital of the Algarve, Faro stands as a picturesque beach town which offers a brimming nightlife and historic Portuguese sights and architecture. From the well-preserved "Old City" and its cobblestone streets to the Faro Jewish Heritage Centre, you've got plenty of history to look at throughout the city. The multiple kilometre long Praia de Faro beach offers room for anyone to set a towel down and relax in the sun as well.

Why Buy Property in the Central Algarve?

Central Algarve is the heart of the Southern Portuguese coast and is one of the most sought-after European tourist destinations.
