The Algarve is Portugal's most popular region and is famous for unspoilt beaches of golden sand and warm, almost impossibly-clear waters. Dotting the coastline are lively resorts as well as former fishing villages that have become popular getaway destinations. These are just a few examples of all that holidays to the Algarve have to offer.
A holiday to Alte is perfect if you're looking for a beautiful place in which to soak up the traditional Portuguese atmosphere and enjoy a totally chilled-out experience. This quiet and peaceful village is a true hidden gem of the Algarve.
For people who enjoy destinations where life unfolds at a leisurely pace, Alte holidays are a dream come true. The village couldn't be more typical of this region and as you walk around its narrow, cobbled streets, it feels as if time has mostly stood still for years.
Alte really is as pretty as a picture, with colourful plants and trees around every corner, looking lovely against the white-washed houses. Some of the bars, cafés and restaurants are even covered in attractive foliage, giving them their unique character.
Even more stunning is the tucked-away spot that you'll discover at the eastern end of the village. Two natural springs are the focal point, with a series of walkways and bridges to help you get up closer. You can sit right next to the water in the beautifully-maintained gardens and enjoy a picnic.
