The Algarve is famed for the sunshine and temperatures both in and out of their clear blue water, as well as the general annual recognition of the Blue Flag.
Moorish influences, dating back from the 13th Century can be found everywhere in the whitewashed houses, filigree chimneys and narrow winding streets of villages and towns – which are most alive in the interior of the Algarve Sierra – where time seems to stand still – but can also be identified even in the most luxurious resorts and vibrant marinas. Along the Algarve Coast lays the legacy of a multi-cultural Portuguese spirit, brought to the Algarve by Henry the Navigator, who was the mentor of the Portuguese Expansion to the 4 corners of the World.
