The Algarve coast of Portugal has a remarkable micro-climate which gives it at least a 10-month season, some would say more. The odds are high that you can be playing golf or tennis in warm sunshine between March and December and, quite possibly, in January and February as well. That is a huge advantage, not least because the Algarve is an ’outdoor’ destination, a paradise for swimming and watersports and tennis and golf.
The Algarve is a mecca for golfers; in just 50 miles of coastline, there are 22 well-kept challenging golf courses, many of championship standard. In the evenings, you can relax with a glass of the local vinho verde on the terrace of your lovely property and dine under the stars; or visit one of the many attractive restaurants, some of them right beside the beach.
