If you want your next holiday to be beautiful, authentic and relaxing, renting a villa in Algarve Portugal may well be the exact holiday that you're looking for. 

In this blog post, I hope (if it hasn't been already) to ignite your wanderlust for Portugal, specifically the Algarve - a place I spent six weeks in. I will also show you how to find the best villas in Algarve to suit your needs - whether they be accessible, financial, adventurous or relaxation orientated. 

Portugal holidays - why go to Portugal?

No matter who you are or where you're from (yes, even if you're Portuguese), I can and will recommend a holiday in Portugal to you - why? Because it is one of my favourite places on the planet: 
  • The Mediterranean climate is perfect, the sun improves your general mental health, and the wet winters means that:
  • The country is abundant in fresh produce. Want to eat an orange or a fig or a lemon straight from a tree? Head to Portugal. Eating healthily here is easy, cheap and delicious. 
  • The ability to grow fresh produce includes grapes which of course means wine - some of the best wines in the world are grown in Portugal - find out more about Portuguese wine
  • 832 km of coastline - Portugal is situated on the left side of Europe, right on the Atlantic coast. This means beaches and surf for, well, kilometres and kilometres. 
Put simply, the nature in Portugal is perfection, and the lifestyle you could have there is natural and healthy. 

Algarve holidays - why choose the Algarve?

I've spent time in Lisbon (the capital), the Azores (a collection of islands in the Atlantic) and the Algarve. Whilst I love all three, I would recommend the Algarve when it comes to villas to rent in Portugal. Why? The Algarve is the southernmost region of Portugal and is thus (in general) the sunniest. 

The fauna and flora are incredible down there - actually very reminiscent of Australia for me with its orange dirt roads (though unfortunately no kangaroos). It's a completely different world to the jungle terrain of the Azores or the concrete jungle of Lisbon. 

It is also well-known for its breath-taking Atlantic beaches which, thanks to more people opting for Spain over Portugal (simply because Spain is closer or Spain is the one they've heard of it) tend to be emptier than your average European beach. 

Villas in Portugal - why rent a villa?

What advantages are there to renting a villa over staying in a hotel? Renting a villa in Portugal will give you all the home luxuries you're used to (like the use of a full kitchen and a washing machine) and then some. For example, you can choose a villa with your own private pool - how many hotels can offer that? 

It's also probably a lot cheaper than you expect (see below), specifically if you split the costs between a group of friends and/or family. Put simply, this can be one of the most rewarding ways to connect with your loved ones - all under one (big) roof.
