Summer Holiday 2019

Please could you advise me with any information about staying here or another resort in Portugal. We are a couple in our late 50’s, love the beach, plenty of restaurants, lively bars. Plus in an area with lots to see and do. Would look to be staying for 3 weeks. Many thanks

What information do you need? Here's an aerial picture of Praia da Rocha

Does this appeal to you?

Praia da Rocha would tick all your boxes but it is utterly lacking in charm!

If staying for 3 weeks i would recommend hiring a car and venture along the algarve. Pdr might not keep you entertained for that amount of time. Great beach. But as above no real algarve charm.

Perhaps consider Alvor, still great beach, lots restaurants, but centre retains village, although some high rise nothing like Praia de Rocha. Can visit here easily from Alvor. Consider carefully for a three week stay, don't want to regret your choice.

What time of the year are you staying?

As Agent Nikky advises a car would be a good idea definitely.

What about a two-centre holiday?

Take your time choosing, there are so many resorts you can pick from.

You could start with the western Algarve, maybe Lagos? Then move towards the east?
