Family Algarve

The combination of the Algarve’s reliably sunny climate and the area’s fantastic family-friendly hotels, boasting excellent facilities and suitably relaxed atmospheres, makes this a great choice for a European family vacation.

If you can drag the children away from the activities on offer at the hotel (or yourselves away from the sun loungers), we can arrange numerous activities for you to enjoy. You could head out on a luxury yacht for the day with your own skipper and explore the coves dotted along the coast, where you can either sit back, relax and let your skipper do the work or take the chance for the children to learn the ropes from them, and do a bit of sailing themselves. You can then stop off and explore deserted coves and feel like true pirates as you search for hidden treasures. Along the coast there are also some excellent surfing spots, perfect for private surfing lessons if your little ones are desperate to get in the waves.

Away from the water, we can arrange visits to local markets followed by cookery classes; hiking tours to admire the incredible views of the sloping red cliffs; cultural and guided tours and much more. The Algarve is also famous for its golf courses, so either take the children out to perfect their swing, or let them enjoy the countless activities on offer at the hotel while you enjoy the full 18-holes.
