Overview

Parc highlights

It’s understandable really; the Algarve’s beaches, tumbling, whitewashed villages and rocky coves were always going to attract sun worshippers. But at Carvoeiro, tourism and tranquility manage to co-exist perfectly.

Tucked into a narrow cleft in the Algarve coast, the village retains much charm: its unhurried atmosphere is a rare delight (with just enough nightlife to keep you happy, too). With its stunning pool overlooking the sea, sunny terraces and harmonious cluster of apartments, Algar Seco offers Portuguese hospitality at its best. Close by, those stunning beaches call - with the promise of water sports, sunbathing and maybe even horse riding through the waves.
