The Algarve, Portugal

The spectacular Atlantic coastline of the Algarve is a delight of surfswept sands, rugged coves and sheltered bays. Flights to Faro are some of the shortest from the UK, making the Algarve the ideal choice for an easy sunshine break. Drenched in the sweet scent of orange groves, sophisticated beachfront hotels and luxurious private villas provide the finest of indulgent retreats with unspoiled beaches and exclusive sports, health and fitness spas all easing away the stresses of daily life. The Algarve is home to the lush greens of some of the world’s most acclaimed golf courses that, with its mild sunny climate, have earned it a reputation as a golfers’ paradise.
