Eastern Algarve

Authentic, traditional and tranquil

Eastern Algarve took longer to be discovered by the overseas buyers and some argue that it retains more of an authentic Portuguese feel than its Central and Western neighbours. It also offers stunning flat seascapes.

The smallest region of the Algarve, we classify Eastern Algarve from Santa Bárbara de Nexe over to Castro Marim on the Spanish border. If you want a more authentic Portuguese experience head East. Still with its traditional aura surrounding it, many say spending time here is like going back 20 or 30 years to a more slow, relaxed pace of life. With magnificent hilltop views and cobbled towns the East is where we go to unwind and get away from it all.
