On this relaxing holiday we stay in one of the most attractive resort towns in the Algarve - popular Albufeira, with its charming old town, narrow cobblestone streets and white-washed buildings. The lively town square is the ideal place to enjoy the cafes, people watch and shop for local handicrafts.
Our hotel, the First Class Vila Gale Cerro Alagoa, is perched on the cliffside above Fisherman’s Beach (Praia dos Pescadores). In the days before Albufeira had a harbour all the local fishermen used this location to bring in their catch. Today the beach is an inviting scene of holiday makers strolling the golden sand, bathing in the sun and enjoying the views of the sea and surrounding cliffs.
The hotel is situated in the modern section of town within a few minutes walk to shops and restaurants, and walking distance to the old quarter of Albufeira. Amenities of our hotel include a heated indoor pool, outdoor pool, fitness centre, jacuzzi and games room. Spacious guest rooms are twin-bedded with a pool view and balcony. Buffet breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner is included daily while in the Algarve. Local wine, beer, soft drinks and mineral water are served with all lunches and dinners. WiFi is complimentary throughout the hotel.
Following our stay in the Algarve we will travel by coach to Lisbon (with a stop in Evora en route), for a 2-night stay including a city tour and Farewell Dinner.
*** Those joining any of our tours to Europe must be able to walk fairly long distances and climb stairs easily.
