Villa Bonnina is located within a gorgeous private garden behind electric gates on the famous Penina Hotel & Golf Resort, the original home of golf in the Algarve. With three golf courses, including the Algarve’s first 18 hole Championship course, this luxury, five-star Algarve hotel leads the way in high-class service, Portuguese charm, well being services, tennis and exceptional golf. The resort offers many dining opportunities including buffet breakfasts and dinners, Le Grill, their fine dining restaurant, L’Arlecchini for Italian delights, the Sir Henry Cotton Club for light meals and Dunas Beach Restaurant for snacks and tapas. There are also cocktail and wine bars.

Portimao brings delicious seafood, shopping and waterfront promenades to the table, along with one of the Algarve’s best beaches, Praia da Rocha around the corner. Portimao is a sailor’s delight with elite competitions taking place. Long before tourism arrived in Portimao, the town made a living from fishing and canning. The fascinating Museu de Portimao is housed in the evocative old Feu Cannery and impresses guests with the history of the industry. The Megalithic Monuments of Alcarlar are very close to Portimao on the hilltop and spreading out over 10 hectares. There are burial monuments in the complex and a vast cairn with a shape resembling a beehive. Portimao has a wonderful market, the Mercado Municipal, which is a great place to stock up on supplies for the villa. There is also a special farmers market on Saturdays. The riverside esplanade is remarkable and perfect for a stroll beside the swaying palms. It is beautiful at night with the twinkly lights on the opposite bank. There are many opportunities for seafaring excursions from Portimao. You can take a voyage on a replica pirate ship, look out for dolphins, take on some water sports or simply enjoy the magnificent coastline.

Further inland, the red-hued town of Silves is nestled on the banks of the River Arade, dominated by one of the best-preserved castles in the Algarve. Silves was the capital of the ancient Arab kingdom of Algarve and retains many of its ancient nods to the past. It also boasts many charming outdoor cafes, some excellent restaurants, pretty fountains, a market hall and wonderful scented orange groves. Lagoa is a very pretty, historic hill town which enjoys some gorgeous, ancient buildings, some stunning art galleries and some wonderful eateries.

The sensational Praia do Alvor features three impressive sea stacks known as the Tres Irmaos or Three Brothers, fine glistening white sand, ochre sandstone cliffs, grottoes and caves and extensive dunes. Praia do Vau is 2km west of the stunning Praia da Rocha and is quieter than its neighbour. The beach is surrounded by impressive red coloured cliffs which also make it more sheltered than some. On one side of Praia da Rocha is Praia do Alemao with several rock pools enjoyed by young children and on the other, Praia dos Careanos. From Praia do Vau you can enjoy a lovely beach walk all the way to Praia do Rocha, passing Praia dos Careanos. You will see some stunning rock formations along the way. From Praia do Alemao you can take the cliff walk which boasts incredible stunning views of the rock formations.

With a rich seafaring heritage and a dramatic coastline, the historic and characterful town of Lagos is a fantastic place to visit. It boasts a 17th century fort, intricate baroque churches such as Igreja de Nossa Senhora da Luz and the city’s ancient Moorish walls. The cultural centre of Lagos was originally built in 1710 as the Convent of Saint Joseph and is now home to exhibitions of paintings, photography and sculpture. Lagos has fantastic shopping and dining opportunities. If you want to stay out late then Lagos, home to many neon-lit bars, is the place to come.

Portimão is the largest city in the western Algarve and was traditionally a centre for shipbuilding, sardine fishing and fish processing. Today, most of that industry has been replaced by tourism, leisure and retail, leaving Portimão as a large and residential city. Perhaps the most attractive part of the town is the riverfront which runs from the marina to beyond the road bridge. There are several squares along this stretch, which become increasingly less touristy as you head away from the marina.

Of course, Portimão is probably best known for the fantastic beach of Praia da Rocha. Located about 3 km south of the town, this is one of the most impressive stretches of sand on the Algarve coast. Take a trip up the Rio Arade and explore the local area, or get out and active in the sunshine. Our pick of the best properties to stay in Portimão are perfect bases whether you're simply here for a beach holiday or you plan to explore further afield.


Though most people tend to see the Algarve as all about the beaches and a holiday on the Med, there’s far much more to it than that. There’s actually a load of fascinating culture and history, superb cuisine and enthralling adventures to be had, though we’d be the first to admit that the beaches are pretty special too, with lots of sand, spectacle and wonderfully clean water.

But while you’re enjoying one of our fantastic villas in Algarve, you may well want to take some time out from all that sun worship to explore everything else the region has to offer – so we’ve put together this handy travel guide to give you a little help and inspiration!
