About the Country Retreats
The Algarve's coastline includes hundreds of sandy islets, salt lagoons, steep cliffs, sandy bays, and coves separated by mysterious grottoes and strange rock formations. Dotted along this diverse coastline you will find the charming little fishing ports and quaint, yet bustling towns, which have much to offer and are a pleasure to visit. Reknown for its miles of unspoilt beaches and natural waters, the Algarve also has the most beautiful countryside. Beautiful vistas, rolling hills, rural life, rich flora and fauna, along with plenty of ruins offers so much for one to discover and explore. Worth a visit are the Roman ruins of Estoi, the Moorish town of Silves, and the market town of Loulé. The Serra Monchique Mountains - the highest peak in the south - is a region full of character and remote villages surrounded by cork and chestnut woods. The interior retains much of its original charm and it is worthwhile for the visitor to explore this untouched region. The west coast also remains largely untouched, though it can be quite windy. The peace and tranquility available at our Country Retreats makes these Villas a perfect choice for those after a relaxing yet enchanting experience.
