Sitting pretty as a picture on Portugal's southern tip, the Algarve has been enchanting travellers for years. Just avoid the whitewashed villa and golf complexes. Whether you're drawn to its pearly-white beaches bordered by tree-fringed cliffs, or to the gorgeous green hills of Serra do Monchique, Algarve holidays are guaranteed to delight. The mild climate is perfect for strolling through villages
along sleepy little streets and visiting the Algarve’s historical sites, from Moorish castles and Roman villas to Manueline (Portuguese late Gothic) monuments. Once you've worked up an appetite, find a lovely little local restaurant and savour the Algarve's aromatic cuisine with a plate piled high with freshly caught sardines grilled to perfection or a hearty bowl of stew bursting with flavour.
