About this holiday

We are based in Portimão, a city steeped in history that, from early on, was a gateway to the Mediterranean and remains to this day one of the Algarve’s most attractive and historic towns. Lying along the bank of the Arade river, Portimão has a beautiful setting, with its wonderful marina, and tree-lined plazas, cobbled streets and picturesque squares and churches. There is much to see and do here and some great venues for our evening meals when we visit a number of the town’s local restaurants.

Our programme of 5 guided walks includes:

Rio Arade

The walk starts along a levada beside the Rio Arade and continues through the orange and lemon groves which are a feature of the landscape here. We finish in the charming town of Silves, where we have free time to explore this historic town.

Porto de Mós to Burgau

Today we take a fantastic coastal walk from Porto de Mós to Burgau with a lunch stop at Luz. This beautiful walking route traces the Algarve coastline from Porto de Mós to Burgau, with stunning cliff-top views stretching for miles around.

Alvor to Portimao

This beautiful coastal walk takes us past the superb sandy beaches and dramatic headlands between Alvor and Portimão, including the much photographed beach at Praia da Rocha, one of the most beautiful in the Algarve. The rock strata here are particularly varied and very colorful, from white limestone to red sandstone. These different rocks support a wide variety of flora and, in spring, there are impressive displays of wild flowers.

São João and São Miguel

This inland walk takes in the villages of Barão de São João and Barão de São Miguel, charming rural villages, characterized by the region’s typical white houses with a coloured band around the windows and doors. This and the traditional Algarve chimneys demonstrate the many years of Moorish occupancy of the area.
