Itinerary

Day One

Fly to Faro, meet your Tour Manager and transfer by coach to Albufeira and the hotel. Settle in, and enjoy your first evening - perhaps strolling down into town before dinner.

Day Two

Today you're free to enjoy the facilities of your hotel and its surroundings. Why not venture into nearby Albufeira, where the streets and hotels will be decorated for Christmas?

Day Three

Head east, along the coast, to the colourful fishing port of Olhao and the Algarve capital, Faro. Here you'll discover a fascinating old town of cobbled streets and hidden squares, and a colourful marina. Spend a couple of hours exploring, perhaps browsing the lively fish and fresh produce markets, and watching the locals restock their larders after the Christmas festivities, before we return to Albufeira in the evening.

Day Four

Join today's optional excursion to the beautiful Western Algarve. Here, highlights will include maritime Lagos and its walled fortifications, historic Sagres and the wild promontory of Cape St Vincent - Europe's most southwesterly point.

Day Five (Christmas Eve)

Join us on an included excursion to historic Seville, Spain's great city of flamenco. See the Giralda Tower at the city's magnificent cathedral, gaze across the pavilion-framed expanse of Plaza de Espana, and perhaps visit the Plaza de Toros - Spain's oldest bullring - before returning to the hotel to begin your Christmas celebrations.

Day Six (Christmas Day)

Enjoy a restful and relaxing Christmas Day at your hotel, the highlight of which will be a traditional Christmas dinner.

Day Seven (Boxing Day)

Today's final optional excursion takes us high into the hills above the Algarve. Stroll down Monchique's steeply cobbled streets and narrow alleyways, and perhaps catch a breathtaking glimpse of the coast on a fine day, before we continue to Silves to marvel at its Roman and Moorish remains and great cathedral.

Day Eight

Return to the airport, today, and check in for your flight back to the UK.

Cerro Mar Garden Hotel ★★★★

Set high above the old town - some 400 metres from Albufeira's main square, and 500 metres from the seafront - this warm and welcoming hotel has wonderful views from its rooftop garden. (Due to its location on the hill overlooking Albufeira, this hotel may not be suitable for anyone with walking difficulties.)

Further Information

Hotel transfer times

The transfer time from the airport to your hotel is approximately 45 minutes.

Combining hotel transfers

We sometimes need to combine transfers to and from your hotel. We always try to keep any wait to a minimum, but you may be asked to wait at the airport for up to an hour, while other incoming flights arrive, before the transfer to your hotel. Similarly, we may need to transfer you back to the airport up to three hours before your flight home departs.

Special requirements

If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.

Disabled access

The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair, please let us know at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made.

Itinerary changes

Occasionally, for operational reasons, we may have to change the order of the excursions on your holiday. The final day-by-day itinerary will be confirmed on your Final Travel Documents, which you will receive approximately three weeks prior to your departure.

21st December arrivals

The itinerary described is based on flights arriving on 20th December 2016. It will be adjusted for flights arriving on the 21st, so that the excursions still take place on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day.
