Finding the best Algarve villas can be a time-consuming task, but with Algarve Retreats we can offer the independent traveller a wide selection of holiday properties to rent. From self-catering villas to holiday apartments and hotels, you can now choose from a selection of quality Algarve accommodation.
Our largest selection of Algarve villas are self-catering villas. We have over 40 luxurious villas available in the Algarve, available for rental for most of the season.
These properties range from 2 to 5 bedroom villas and many can be found around Praia da Luz and Salema. Most villas also have their own swimming pools and are only a short distance from the coast and the wonderful beaches that make renting holiday Algarve villas so special.
You can also select from a range of holiday apartments in this part of Portugal, including 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments in a choice of superb locations along the wonderful Algarve coastline.
Finally, if your preference is to enjoy your holidays in Portugal in the relaxing luxury of a hotel, we can recommend a comfortable hotel in Praia da Luz in the Algarve.
At Algarve Retreats, we provide Algarve villas for independently organised travel. Many of the properties listed are rented out directly by the property owners and your booking will be made with them.
However, our aim is also to provide the best service possible, offering access to holiday flights to Portugal, car hire and travel insurance at reasonable prices, plus we have local partners in the Algarve to ensure that your holidays in Portugal meet your expectations.
