Self Catering Holidays in Portugal

Algarve, Portugal

Holiday rentals in Portugal can easily be found in some very lively, well known beach resorts or in quiet, away-from-it-all settings. If its peace you desire, then head slightly inland within the Algarve region where you will find numerous small towns and large villages with high quality holiday accommodation in Portugal and not far from the nearest airport.

Inland, Portugal holiday villas will offer you and your family an ideal setting, great facilities including stunning pools, BBQ’s, spacious room sizes and much more besides being just a short drive to the beach or nearby Golf Course.

Although some holidaymakers who visit Portugal prefer to go straight to the popular coastal resorts, its worth remembering that daily life in rural communities can be just as interesting and exciting too! You’ll still find lively towns and bustling cities in which to escape from the beach where you can explore and discover with interest, many of your cultural desires because there is a wealth of magnificent monuments as well as an abundance of stunning landscapes to admire, that you will want to return many more times. Visitors who stay in holiday villas in Portugal or Algarve holiday apartments will experience firsthand the warm Portuguese hospitality not always available elsewhere.


Being made welcome at the start of your vacation will set you up with confidence that you have chosen the right location to stay for a holiday in Portugal. The best villas in Portugal come with private pools, spacious patios, quality furnishings throughout and seasons permitting, a large daily dose of Mediterranean sunshine for the duration of your visit.

Apart from enjoying a self-catering holiday villa or apartment in the Algarve, why not explore the Lisbon coast, the Silver coast, the Western Algarve or the Eastern Algarve as all the areas offer a multitude of opportunities to book holiday villas too.

If you want a holiday rental in Portugal with lots of flexibility, an apartment in any of these regions will be more that adequate and could offer more thrills for your money. Wherever your villa or apartment is located, it’s never to far a day trip into the mountains where you’ll pass masses of olive groves and some of Portugal’s historic villages.

A cottage or farmhouse holiday in Northern Portugal maybe next on your list to experience, as you will know that the beach areas can be a perfect base from where you can start exploring the rich’s of Portugal’s magnificent countryside.

Holiday villas in Algarve are very popular with visitors to this charming country, especially if you also play golf and fancy a holiday villa in Vilamoura, a beach villa rental in Albufeira, a farmhouse villa in Alentijo or a villa near the beach in popular Tavira. Whatever you decide for your self catering holiday in Portugal, you can be assured of a wide selection of reliable B & B’s in Portugal too.

Paul enjoys holiday villas and short term stays in holiday apartments during his travels for both business and pleasure throughout Europe and more recently holiday rentals in the Middle East.

Vacation Rentals in the Turks and Caicos

Article by Royalrealtytci

Turks and Caicos villa rentals: The Turks and Caicos are actually made up of two island groups: the Turks to the east, and the Caicos Islands to the west. The Caicos Islands have been developed the most, and are home to an international airport and commercial center, as well as many luxury resorts. Thus the TCI is famous for beautiful, unspoiled beaches, and their proximity by air to Miami.

Still, this British Overseas Territory has remained the best-kept secret of the Caribbean. The Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI) are a beautiful Caribbean island chain, close to the Bahamas, as well as the island of Hispaniola, which is itself home to the countries of Haiti and the Dominican Republic. But there are accommodations to suit every budget.

In despite these amenities, the islands remain relatively unspoiled and undeveloped. Providenciales, or Provo and the location of the airport, is the largest and western-most island. Thus the TCI islands are quietly gaining a reputation for exclusive, refined holidays matched nowhere else. It’s a great way to people-watch.

There are luxury resorts in Provo just minutes from the airport and the downtown bustle of the shopping district. It can get crowded here in high season, especially the beaches, and resembles many other destinations in the Caribbean. It’s a great place to create your own, exclusive tropical vacation.

The sea is a deep turquoise cover, the sand is the texture of sugar, and there are opportunities to swim with dolphins, observe rare humpback whales during their annual migration, or just sit back and spend some special and intimate moments with loved ones. While the area around the airport is highly developed, the rest of the island is not, and features wilderness parks perfect for scuba diving, snorkeling, and sailing.

The luxury resorts in Grace Bay are truly incredible. All are just steps from the beach, but also feature private pools and personal vacation villas set back from the road to ensure privacy. So, the Turks and Caicos Islands are a couple of luxury resort options, one near the convenience of the commercial center and the airport and the other in the more secluded eastern reaches of Providenciales.

        Anyone Know of a UK Wedding Venue in the Country That Allows Outside/self-Catering & Has No Corkage or Curfew?

        We want to get married next summer and are looking for a venue in the country, preferably in the south. We want a relatively simple ceremony for around 60-70 people (so the venue must have a wedding license). This would be followed by a self-catered dinner on the grounds (maybe a posh BBQ) and then dancing under the stars. We don’t want to pay an arm & a leg for catering or corkage and we don’t want a curfew. Can anyone recommend somewhere nice that meets this criteria?

          What Does Anyone Think of Shakeshaft Self-Catering in South Wales?

          What does anyone think of Shakeshaft self-catering in Capel Dewi, Carmarthen, South Wales?
          I went there a couple of years back and found the owners very disrespectful. The rooms were quite grubby (dead flies, dust, mould in the fridge, etc) and facilities generally not very good. Yet they charged quite a lot of money for just one weeks stay. I Just wondered what anyone else thought about this poor standard of accommodation and if anyone had suggestion of better accommodation in South Wales? Or should I give up and visit another country? Anyone have any thoughts?
