Why a family holiday in the Algarve?
Portugal has become increasingly popular destination for UK family holidays. In particular, the Algarve which is the southernmost region of Portugal, renowned for its fabulous beaches and inviting all-year-round climate. Although known for its areas of mass tourism, the Algarve does in fact have some beautiful unspoilt areas. The whole coastline to the west of Lagos is less developed and has a hillier, rugged terrain, with awesome cliffs that fall away into the sea.
But what makes it so good for family holidays in particular? Family holidays in the Algarve suit many because of the large choice of activities available, from watersports, tennis and golf, to hiring bicycles, visiting the aqua parks or simply playing for hours in the sand. Booking a holiday villa in the Algarve , Portugal, is a top choice for families, as the privacy and safety of a villa ensures piece of mind, whilst having easy access to the main attractions of the beaches and the ocean keeps things easy. Upmarket tour operator Scott Dunn offers luxury villas to rent for a week which include your own experienced chef, villa host and childcare. Each family villa comes with a private pool – and they’ll even arrange swimming lessons at the villa for the kids if desired. Whilst Scott Dunn villas include childcare, other options to consider are Solmar Villas who feature a wide range of properties, as well as Independent Villas who are prominent in the West Algarve. For families with little ones, instead of a family villa, another option is a hotel with a children’s club, such as Pine Cliffs, Sheraton Algarve, where the family holiday can benefit from childcare from 4 months-13 years old.
