During the recent World Travel Awards hosted by Europe’s popular holiday destination, the Algarve, on October 6, Portugal graciously accepted a stunning total of 12 awards including Best Beach and Golf Destination.
Such prestigious awards, as voted by travel professionals from around the world serve to further confirm that the Algarve is considered as one of Europe’s most attractive stretches of coastline and a top choice for holidaymakers year round.
Designed to accommodate all manner of tourism from beach, to water sports, culture, golf and family friendly adventures, it is this versatility that has landed the Algarve with such world renown. Not only is the striking coastline proud to offer miles of beautiful beaches and a range of sun and water fuelled activities, it is also home to historical villages, stellar vineyards, a range of wine tasting and sight seeing tours and wonderful array of flora and fauna. Bringing together wine connoisseurs, ornithologists, water sport fanatics, golf enthusiasts and those arriving to the sun for some rest and relaxation, it is understandable why many tourists choose to repeatedly return to the diversity of the Algarve region.
From top-class hotels to Algarve holiday villas of all shapes, sizes and styles, this part of the peninsular has something to offer even the most budget-conscious of travellers. With a large selection of villas for all size of groups, the most popular areas include the bustling Quinta do Lago, Dunas Douradas and Vale do Lobo resorts where self-catering villas are definitely the most popular style of accommodation. Located within walking distance of the main amenities, golf courses and excursion meeting points, the selection of stunning holiday villas offer a certain level of freedom and privacy that the hotels are unable to match.
A range of beautifully decorated, family-friendly properties in the quieter, more rural locations of the Algarve, such as Albufeira, Carboeiro and Vilamoura, also cater for those wanting to be a little further from the hubbub of activity of the resorts. Only a short drive from both the coast and quaint inland villages, these holiday villas are perfect for anyone wanting to soak up typical Portuguese culture while surrounded by nature, open countryside and some great views.
The Dunas Douradas beach resort, however, was proud to receive the wonderful acclamation as Europe’s leading villa and apartment resort at this year’s Global Travel Awards. Having won the Bloomberg Best Development Europe Award less than two years ago, such continued recognition definitely puts this area at the top of the leader board and makes an Algarve Dunas Douradas villa a hot pick for visitors.
