Why not get away for an Algarve summer holiday and enjoy a laid-back atmosphere, sandy beaches and of course lovely hot sunshine!
10 Night Algarve Summer Holiday Including Hotel And Flights
I have found a deal for an Algarve summer holiday in sunny Portugal’s southernmost region, home to gorgeous sandy beaches and a fascinating past.
With this fabulous package from On The Beach you will be spending 10 nights in a hotel in the sunny Algarve with flights included for just £219 per person.
Flights are from Leeds to Faro, flying out with Ryanair and returning with Monarch, although transfers aren’t included – check your options here.
The Colina Dos Mouros Hotel is set in its own lovely gardens with a view of the town of Silves with it’s castle and cathedral. There’s a swimming pool, as well as a snack bar and sun loungers or parasols. The coast with it’s glorious beaches is just a few miles away, but it’d be worth renting a car to make the most of it. This hotel scores 4/5 on TripAdvisor.
The Algarve is a great region for some really interesting walking and tours, and I would recommend heading to the Monumentos Megaliticas de Alcalar. These historic burial tombs are a vision like no other, where you can tunnel your way through caves that have been there since time immemorial. With tours available in English you can learn all about the rituals and practices associated with these ancient tombs, certainly a great attraction for any history buffs. Silves offers great links to lovely beaches, and the Moorish influenced Old Town with it’s castle and cathedral is a treat to discover – consider renting a car to be able to make the most of the coast and maybe head off the tourist trail. Portugal also has delicious food, mixing Iberian classics with more exotic elements from north Africa – a truly cosmopolitan cuisine. With beaches, culture and cuisine, an Algarve summer holiday is the perfect escape this July.
