Great Villas In Portugal We Think You'll Love

Portugal Villa Destinations

Portugal is one of the best villa destinations in Europe. From the vineyards of the Douro Valley, to the streets of Albufeira Old Town, it's the perfect holiday destination.

The Algarve

Golden beaches, fantastic restaurants, great nightlife, world class golf courses, a wealth of activities and so much more make the Algarve such an attraction destination. You'll fly into Faro airport which is towards the east of the Algarve, but you'll likely want to be staying in places like Vilamoura, Lagos and Praia da Luz, which offer a little bit of everything, including water parks. The Algarve is also popular with golfers with top courses including Vale do lobo and Quinta do Lago.

Silver Coast

The Silver Coast is far less known to British holidaymakers, yet it's a seriously underrated destination. With some of the best beaches in Portugal and beautiful scenery, just waiting to be discovered, this part of Portugal can be great if you love exploring and spending less time by the pool.

Near The Beach

Beachside villas are the ultimate in luxury. Being able to step out of your home onto the soft sandy beaches of the Algarve or Silver Coast is a dream come true, but with a big price tag. Fear not! There are plenty of great villas in Portugal which are walking distance to the beautiful beaches and the amazing water sports on offer.

You'll find private homes and places to stay on the like of Airbnb and James Villa Holidays, but places like Salgados Beach Villas are part of larger complexes, so you're within walking distance of the beach and still have easy access to a range of hotel facilities.

Holiday Types

Whether you're after a family villa with plenty of rooms, or a cute home with sea views there are plenty of different types to enjoy:

Villas With Private Pools

While many can have shared pools, having your own private pool can be an absolute saviour, especially in the summer months and if you have kids. Safety is paramount with private pools so if you have young children, try and get one that's closed off. Alternatively, hot tubs are also a popular option with some places, especially in the cooler winter months.

Including Flights

It's great to add in flights to your Portugal villa holiday, especially if the package is ATOL protected. You can book your travel and accommodation separately, but plenty of brands can add on your flights like TUI and Jet2villas, which we encourage.

Luxury Villas In Portugal

Splashing the cash? Won the lottery? Celebrating a special occasion? The luxurious villas can offer high end furnishings, plenty of space and if you're lucky, even incredible sea views. Pretty much all villas are self catering, but you can even hire yourself a chef for a few days to take car of all the cooking.

Golf Villas In Portugal

Portugal is home to a number of Championship golf courses, especially around the Algarve and Lisbon areas. You'll even find some backing right on the fairways, making for stunning views from your garden or terrace.

When To Rent A Villa In Portugal

If you're looking to escape with the kids, you might be considering the summer months to escape to Portugal. Summer holiday deals can be found, especially if you're booking early, but being such a popular time to travel, prices can also still be higher than other times of the year. In summer, you'll also want to make sure you have air conditioning and a pool can be great at this time too.

Portugal quietens down in the winter months for holidaymakers, which means the average accommodation price can drop. And while some hotels close for winter, people who have holiday homes will want to rent them out throughout the year to ensure they get continued income so it's a great opportunity to stay.
