Your Destination

This region in the south of Portugal with short mild winters has long been a favourite European holiday destination. Just two hours drive from the capital, Lisbon, the Algarve has, aside from great weather and white sandy beaches, many other attractions that contribute to its popularity.

The Algarve itself has its history portrayed in the centuries-old churches and castles which you can find in almost every town. The delicious cuisine is famed for its fresh fish, the olive oil and the organic produce.

The Sao Rafael Atlantic Hotel has a privileged cliff top location overlooking the beautiful Sao Rafael beach and enjoying breathtaking views of the ocean.
