The surrounding landscape is just as impressive, with the Rio Arade cutting through lush green hills.
Next, we'll head north to the picture-perfect mountain town of Monchique. Breathe in clean air, drink in panoramic views of the countryside and sample locally made treats like medronho, a fruit liqueur produced in the nearby hills. The day will draw to a close with dinner together back at the hotel.

Day 4 Boxing Day, Vineyards Tour

Today promises to be one you'll never forget, with the afternoon spent in a peaceful winery perched at the top of Quinta do Miradouro – a breathtaking viewpoint where vineyards and ribbons of sandy coastline stretch out below. There could be no lovelier location for a wine-tasting, so let's indulge! You can share stories of your memorable day over dinner at the hotel this evening.

Meals included: B,D

Day 5 Alvor

The historic fishing town of Alvor, with its port straight from a postcard, will be our destination today. There are lots of different ways to spend your time here, from wandering along the pale sands of Praia de Alvor to spotting wildlife in the marshlands of the Ria de Alvor Nature Reserve. This evening we'll get together at the hotel for another delicious dinner.

Day 6 Sagres & Cabo de Sáo Vicente

For our final full day in the Algarve we'll be making our way west, where the austerely beautiful landscape offers a complete change of atmosphere.

Our farewell dinner tonight will be in a traditional restaurant, where you can enjoy the region's specialities one last time.
