About the Algarve

Around this page are views along the Algarve giving an insight to the sights and places you can enjoy. If there is a topic of particular interest just let us know and we will search our archives – we have been touring the Algarve for many years, so have seen plenty of places and met lots of very friendly people. English, and often German and French is spoken in most shops, cafes and information centres. You will feel immediately at home, and of course you will be able to enjoy the benefit of the warm sunny weather – the Algarve has over 3000 sunny hours a year with temperatures that usually seem to exceed the averages shown in the table below. You will probably notice that later months are quite a bit warmer than in northern Europe.
