A Week On The Algarve

8 Days from £749 | February, March, May, September, October, November 749

A relaxing week in an excellent hotel amid the beauty of the Algarve is the recipe for this Portuguese holiday. You will discover not just the spectacular coastline, but also the unspoilt countryside of the hinterland, with historic sites such as Silves, the former Moorish capital of the Algarve, with its Roman Bridge and 16th-century church. Your resort, Armação de Pêra, boasts one of the most beautiful beaches in the Algarve, with pretty coves and a panorama of brightly coloured fishing boats. Your base is the 4-star Holiday Inn (formerly Hotel Garbe), right on the beach.

  • 7 nights hb in the 4* Holiday Inn on the beach at Armação de Pêra
  • 3 included guided excursions visiting Portimao, Silves, Cape St Vincent and Lagos

Day One: Flight to Faro and transfer to your hotel in Armação de Pêra, just 45 minutes away from the airport. Seven nights half board accommodation is reserved for you.

Days Two to Seven: In resort with three included excursions:

Your first excursion (half-day) is an orientation tour, showing you the coast to the west of your resort. After a photo stop at the impressive Algar Seco rock formations, you continue to the pretty fishing village of Carvoeiro (coffee stop) and the town and beach resort of Portimao.

The second excursion takes you inland, into the rolling countryside, where you will also stop in one of the Algarve’s most picturesque villages, Alte, and in the former Moorish stronghold of Silves. Alte stands at the foot of the Serra do Calderao, with white houses clustered in the narrow streets around the church. There are natural springs, too, with a series of little waterfalls, grassy banks, and a much-painted bridge over the stream. Silves is bigger than Alte, but no less pretty, beautifully set under its well-preserved Moorish castle and its cathedral, and on the Arade River.

Your other included trip is to the Algarve’s Wild West, Cape St Vincent, the south-west extremity of Portugal, and with its 75m high cliffs, a major landmark for Atlantic shipping. The area is rich in birdlife. Nearby is the village of Sagres, popular with surfers, with a fort, lighthouse and good beaches. Today you will also visit Lagos, a town which is closely associated with Henry the Navigator, and was the starting port of many Portuguese voyages of discovery in the 15th and 16th centuries.

Day Eight: Free time until your transfer to the airport for your return flight.

A very pleasant introduction to the Algarve more than what was expected, the hotel location was excellent. The weather was a big bonus everybody that we encountered during our stay in the hotel were polite, warming and extremely helpful, kind and considerate towards those whose abilities were less fortunate than ours. Our Guide was very accommodating, friendly, considerate and offered an honest approach to the Escorted Tour. overall, in excess of 100%

Mr & Mrs H, Devon

Three friends and myself have returned from a wonderful holiday at the Holiday Inn Algarve, on your escorted holiday and just wanted to let you know how good John our rep/guide was, he is by far the best rep/guide we have had in a long time. He was always there when he said he would be and nothing was too much for him, his attention to detail was amazing and we were always fully informed of what was happening and when. His local knowledge of the area and its history were also amazing. He was kind and considerate to everybody. He certainly made our holiday more enjoyable and we saw lots of lovely places and left the Algarve realising that the Algarve is much more than just a sunny destination.

Mrs S, Aberdeen

Joao has an extensive knowledge of Portugal's history that adds interest to the places visited - as well as an infectious sense of humour. Restaurant staff were professional & polite as were the bar staff.

Mr & Mrs E, Selby

Resort lovely - quite unspoilt, lovely part of Algarve. Hotel & staff v good - all staff extremely pleasant & helpful. Joao was also very helpful & kept up well informed & entertained.

Ms Davies, S Wales

John was an absolute fountain of knowledge and made the history really interesting. John also was very helpful and caring towards everyone. He is a star. We thought, yet again, Preferred Travel has delivered another TOP holiday and look forward to booking Mijas later in the year.

Mrs F, Chester

Haven't even un-packed but had to say what a wonderful holiday we had. The assistance at the airport was brilliant, the room was lovely and we enjoyed the food. We had been to this hotel years ago and couldn't believe how much it had improved. Enjoyed relaxing on the beach. Requested another brochure from Preferred Travel Services and will be recommending this holiday to our friends.
