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 heading into town before dinner.

Day Two

Today is free to enjoy the facilities of the hotel and its surroundings, perhaps venturing the short distance into Albufeira, to enjoy the atmosphere of the celebrated 'gateway to the Algarve'. Albufeira started life as a fishing village, and the daily catch is still landed in the harbour and brought straight to the colourful market most mornings. Wander through the narrow streets of the Moorish Old Town, take a seat in a cafe in the main square, or hunt out bargains in the great selection of shops. Close by, several wonderful beaches vie with the hotel pool for leisurely hours in the sun.

Day Three

Join us today as we journey north on the fast motorway to explore the wonderful Portuguese capital Lisbon on our included guided excursion. Standing on the River Tagus, from whose estuary explorers set sail for the New World on their Journeys of Discovery, the city is a joy to behold.

Don't miss the extraordinary ornate Manueline architecture of the Belem quarter, or the Baixa, a grid of wide tree-lined avenues fringed with cafes and restaurants, as well as strikingly modern new buildings. The bustling Rossio square is thronged with streetsellers and pavement artists. For a hint of the past, stroll the narrow streets of the Alfama district, with its steep stairways leading up to the Castelo de Sao Jorge, or St George's Castle. After a wonderful day, you'll return to Albufeira this evening.

Day Four

Many will want to join in today's full day optional excursion through the wooded hinterland to Monchique. We stop in Silves, the old Moorish capital of the Algarve, before continuing east, through the stunning mountain scenery of Monchique to Foia, the highest point in the Algarve. The varied countryside and stunning views make for a thoroughly enjoyable day out.

Day Five

Today's hugely enjoyable included excursion crosses into Spain to the historic Andalusian city of Seville, the great 'City of Flamenco', setting for Bizet's Carmen and Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro. Seville, where every street is lined with orange trees, has a rich and colourful history, which is reflected in great buildings, beautiful parks, grand boulevards and several atmospheric Old Quarters of narrow streets, which open on to tree-lined squares. Don't miss the magnificent Cathedral, with its 300ft high Giralda Tower and 'tomb' of Christopher Columbus, and perhaps visit the Plaza de Toros, Spain's oldest bullring. Close by, the courtyards of the Moorish Alcazar lead through to the Juderia, or Jewish Quarter. Wander towards sweeping Plaza de Espana, which is the city's ornate, fountain-fronted centrepiece, or simply soak up the atmosphere of this special place, before returning to the hotel this evening.

Day Six

Enjoy a day of rest and relaxation at the hotel or in Albufeira, or join the optional excursion to the beautiful Western Algarve, where highlights of a thoroughly absorbing day will include the splendid maritime town of Lagos, with its walled fortifications, famous 'golden church' and stunning coastal views, historic Sagres, former home to Prince Henry the Navigator, and the wild promontory of Cape St Vincent, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean at Europe's most south-westerly point.

Day Seven

Today's final optional excursion heads east along the coast to the colourful fishing port-town of Olhao, with its Moorish houses, seafront promenade and bustling fish market. Stroll through the historic central quarter and perhaps enjoy a coffee in one of the many pavement cafes.

You'll also visit the historic and elegant town of Tavira, with its castle and Roman bridge, before heading back to Algarve capital Faro, with its fascinating Cidade Velha, or old town, of cobbled streets and hidden squares, and its colourful marina. Spend a couple of hours in exploration, before returning to Albufeira for a last evening in the hotel.

Day Eight

Return to the airport and the flight home, at the end of a thoroughly enjoyable stay.

Further Information

Hotel transfer times

The transfer time from the airport to your hotel is approximately one hour.

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.

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.

HOWARD

Bristol Couple
Very good holiday, well organised by a brilliant tour manager, Mary Anne de Freitas, who was knowledgeable about the area, very personable and caring throughout. She was exceptionally good. The food at the hotel was good, particularly the range on offer for breakfast. Dinners were good too, especially the range of starters and desserts, although the main course options were a little disappointing by comparison. The staff were very friendly, the only negatives were poor internet and wifi facilities and the Eur2.50 daily charge for the room safe which I would normally expect to be free.
