At the borders of Europe, close to Africa, we invite you to discover a land of meetings of civilizations. The Algarve is another Portugal, a Portugal that seems to be reeling at the pace of the Southern seas. This is probably why European tourism has been elected for a festive holiday, without constraints, lazy and langoureuses.
