Places of interest Algarve

From holiday villa Foz do Banho or holiday villa Ribeira do Banho you can visit various places of interest Algarve. Both luxurious villas have a private swimming pool and are situated in southwest Portugal, in the green foothills of Serra de Monchique.

The places of interest Algarve vary from wonderful natural parks to historic cities and from Roman churches to sleeping fishing villages. The wonderful beaches with golden yellow rock formations are a main place of interest Algarve.

Holiday villas Algarve Portugal

Villa Foz and villa Ribeira are situated in a green oasis, on a 5 hectare country estate, bounded by rippling water. During a walk over the country estate you will experience an overwhelming space and peace. A lovely place to return to after having visited places of interest Algarve.

Thanks to the favourable location of the villas you can easily reach both far east and far southwest Algarve.

Places of interest Algarve

South Portugal offers a rich history and a wonderful nature. The white beaches and the remarkable rock formations are well-known; there are, however, much more places of interest Algarve.

Seaside town

The south coast of Portugal offers both lively, busy seaside towns and picturesque fishing villages. In spite of tourism many places have preserved the original Portuguese atmosphere. You should definitely visit Alvor, Lagos, Ferragudo, Carvoeiro, Vilamoura, Quarteira, Faro, Olhão and Tavira. They all have their own places of interest Algarve.

Beaches, rock formations and caves

The south coast consists of white, sandy beaches and rocks with caves and caverns. The yellow ochre and golden yellow rocks are a real place of interest. A boat tour is the best way to discover this scenic beauty.


You can make a boat tour searching for dolphins. Almost every large seaside resort has small companies offering both short- and daytrips inclusive of swimming- and snorkelling breaks and lunch.

Scenic areas

The scenic areas in South Portugal are real places of interest. 'Parque Natural da Ria Formosa', a large scenic area full of salt lakes, sandbanks and swamps with many rare birds, is situated in the east. 'Parque Natural do Sudoeste Alentejano e Costa Vicentina' offers an unspoiled nature. The green hills of natural park Monchique offer valleys with cork oaks, chestnut trees and wild flowers.

History and culture

Many villages with place of interest Algarve are situated in the hinterland of the Algarve. We strongly recommend the historic Silves with its castle, market city Loulé, Paderne with its wonderful, 19th century buildings and Tavira with its many churches and Roman bridge. The white, sleepy villages Salir and Alte are also worth a visit.
