Quinta dos Alamos holidays keep it low-key, delivering all the glory of Portugal's southern coast with none of the crowds.

Keep it simple

This quiet village embraces the simple pleasures that make the Algarve such a special hotspot – namely, good food and natural beauty. A mosaic of whitewashed houses, colourful courtyards and tiny tapas bars, Quinta dos Alamos is the best choice for that away-from-it-all atmosphere without feeling too cut off.

Famous neighbours

Next-door neighbour Guia's just a few minutes' walk away, and happens to have an exciting claim to fame. This is the town where piri-piri chicken was invented, and you won't be surprised to hear that they also perfected it. Stop by, tuck in, and wash it down with some delicious Portuguese wine.

Water the options

There's a Blue Flag award-winning beach just a breezy 10-minute drive away. It features all the Portuguese postcard markings, including striking sea cliffs and golden sands, as well as a few beachfront restaurants and watersports to boot.
