Yes you have read it right, you can spend a holiday to Algarve for a cracking price! Can this be true? Yes it is and your Holidayguru is happy to explain you how you can get this holiday :) The price of £78 per person is based on 4 adults sharing incl. flights and hotel!! This holiday is great for a group or family retreat in December!
I have found a splendid flight bargain for a round trip from London Southend to Faro that you can book on bravofly.co.uk for only £163 in total for 4 adults – that’s only £40.75 per person. Just note that the price only includes cabin luggage and that you have to pay an extra of £37 per luggage, if you need an additional bag.
Then I combined the flights with a great hotel deal that you have to book separately on trivago.co.uk: you will spend 7 nights in the 3-star Alfagar Village (82% on TripAdvisor + Certificate of Excellence) which is a nice family-friendly resort for only £147 for the entire stay – that’s £36.75 per person. That’s the way for you to save a lot of money for such a lovely holiday in Portugal!
The Alfagar Village is located in a beautiful location right on the cliffs with stunning views of the coast. The beach is only 300 metres away and can be reached easily by foot. The old town of Albufeira is about 2.4 miles away. Shops, bars and restaurants are within 1 mile. Spend some nice days here at the resort which offers you 2 swimming pools framed by sun terraces with loungers and enjoy the live music in the evening.
Your holiday is in December and Algarve never gets really cold, but of course the summer will be over and the temperatures are around 16°C to 18°C. But it doesn’t always have to be a beach holiday right? :) I suggest you to rent a car to explore Algarve and to be more flexible during your stay. Therefore check carrentals.co.uk as they have really good prices ranging around £5 per day.
The area around Albufeira has a lot to offer: if you like golfing then hit the golf balls at the Algarve Golf Academy and Sports Bar for example. There’s also a riding centre in Albufeira which might be also very exciting. Should you need more thrills then try out your skills on the Hot Wheels Raceway. But even if the weather is a bit fresh for beach breaks you shouldn’t miss the stunning beaches with its bizarre rock formations. The picture below shows the Benagil sea caves which are close to the Benagil beach. They’re only 51 mins by car from Albufeira.

Please note that while I was searching for this great hotel deal that the ‘view deal button’ for the offer of £19 per night didn’t work. But of course try it! Alternatively just click on ‘view all deals’ and select the rate that says £21 per night. That’s the rate that I have used to price up this holiday.
