Make an Algarve villa rental or vacation rental your home away from home in southern Portugal.

The 100-mile-long Algarve coastline of Portugal, known for its stunning coastline and myriad of beach resorts, still bears the signs of centuries ago Moorish occupation.

One of the most popular resorts is Albufeira. In town, guest of Albufeira vacation rentals will find narrow streets filled with restaurants, bars, and shops. The main beach, Praia do Peneco, offers plenty of activity, and the shore-side promenade is great for strolling and people watching. Praia da Gale, west of town, is a prime spot for water skiing and jet skiing, while to the east Balaia features a gently sloping swimming beach. Public restrooms and showers are available at all beach towns.

Guests of Lagos vacation rentals can take a sightseeing boat tour or explore the old town with its medieval walls and fort. Lagos is known for its beach-party atmosphere and jet ski marina, and the beaches boast interesting rock formations. Boco do Rio, east of Lagos, is a more quiet option.

Cape Sagres, at the southwestern tip of Europe, is another popular resort area. About 15 minutes north of Cape Sagres, guests of Algarve vacation rentals will find the secluded Praia do Castelejo beach, a great spot for relaxing. Nearby Praia do Tonel is popular with surfers.

For a great hideaway, look into Salema vacation rentals in this small fishing village with an un-crowded beach at the western end of the Algarve. Tavira, at the eastern end of the Algarve coast, is a good option for guests of Algarve vacation rentals in the wintertime, when Salema tends to close down.

With more than two dozen golf courses in the area, the Algarve is becoming known as a prime golfing destination. Some popular courses for guests of Algarve vacation rentals and villas include Parque da Floresta in Budens, and the Royal Course and the Oceanfront Course at Vale de Lobo in Albufeira.
