Holiday homes and rentals in Portimão

Where modern meets tradition

Rich Portuguese history remains alive on its narrow streets, speckled with small coffee shops and traditional restaurants. The oldest buildings have Phoenician, Greek and Carthaginian roots. Enjoy this lovely fishing town in the Algarve region. Travellers interested in a more modern destination can choose to stay at Rocha beach, immediately to the south of downtown Portimão. Only a few minutes away, the beach features ultra modern resorts and top-of-the-line excitement. Excellent accommodation in great locations close to the crystalline waters of the Atlantic Ocean.

Spacious rentals for your comfort

Accommodations range from medium-sized to truly huge. Space will never be an issue, with plenty of options for groups of 4-6 people. Of course, visitors travelling on their own or in smaller groups will also find excellent alternatives. Terraces and balconies for you to admire the stunning scenery, bask in the sun by a private swimming pool to take a refreshing dip and all surrounded by palm trees which will provide you just the right amount of shade. And to keep yourself cool, enjoy a siesta away from the sun in the comfort of your lounge.

Holidays in Portimão

The area and getting around

From fishing village to tourist hub

The town of Portimão is located in the Algarve region of southern Portugal. The region has been notorious throughout the ages for its natural ports, ideal for fishing and accommodating explorers of all kinds. What started as a fishing village, however, later turned into a tourist destination. The area remains full of adorable Portuguese flair, with public squares surrounded by small traditional restaurants where it is possible to dine under the stars. In contrast, where the river meets the ocean, Rocha beach awaits with modern glamour and comfort. It is the place to go and enjoy water sports and explore one of the most distinct coasts of the world, featuring beautiful waters, cliffs and caves.

Sardines and local delicacies

Downtown is ideal to enjoy traditional cuisine at a fair price because residents are mostly actual Portuguese locals. Pastelería Arade is a pastry shop famous for its coffee and sweet treats. Other excellent options are Taberna da Mare, Trinca Espinhas, Dona Barca or Forte e Feio, restaurants to taste the town’s famous sardines and grilled fish in general. On the side, try not to miss the “salada à montanheira” (a traditional salad) and “batatas a murro” (roasted potatoes with garlic and olive oil). Once a year, there is even a Sardine Festival seasoned with music and arts and crafts.

Travellers and activities

Destination for history lovers

Many museums and historical sites open their doors to visitors interested in local and universal history. Museu de Portimão celebrates the fishing history of the place and its inhabitants, pioneers in tinned seafood since the 19th century. Several churches and traditional buildings remain excellently preserved to this day, along with forts and a lighthouse with breathtaking views. Forts became a necessity during the Renaissance, an era were pirates and privateers flourished in the region.

Destination for active exploring lovers

Along the Atlantic coast, beaches and coves provide the opportunity to relax or engage in many unforgettable activities. Visitors may take kayak tours to explore caves and isolated beaches only accessible by water. Nautical sports can be enjoyed at their best: surfing, jet skiing, windsurfing, kitesurfing, scuba diving. Some tours even take people into the sea to watch and swim with dolphins in their natural habitat. A few minutes away, a private waterpark with high waterslides and green areas invites travellers to pump some adrenaline into their veins or simply enjoy a nice family picnic.

The Museu de Portimão actually occupies the former venue of a sardine cannery factory.
