Boasting over 300 days of sunshine annually and 200km of coastline with 100 named beaches, the region is the southernmost region of mainland Portugal and is proud of figures showing 90 per cent of its economy is based on tourism, business and leisure.
From luxury hotels to world-renowned golfing resorts, from chic boutique hotels and historic pousadas to comfortable m id-range properties, the Algarve has a fantastic range of hotels to match almost any event requirement or budget. Naturally there are many hotels with excellent meeting facilities but there is also a stand-alone Congress centre in Lagoa whose facilities include an auditorium for 1,000 pax.
The Algarvian cuisine is dominated by the superb fresh fish and seafood harvested from the Atlantic. The famous Cataplana, originally prepared on the open fire place, is a must for most visitors. The influence of the former Portuguese colonies contributes to the richness of the gastronomy as well as the Moorish heritage. And who would have thought that the Algarve would have more Michelin-starred restaurants than anywhere else in the country? The region currently boasts 6 restaurants with Michelin stars.
Direct flights to Faro are available from a large number of European countries including Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Spain and Sweden with principal non-budget airlines including British Airways, Lufthansa, TAP, Brussels Airlines and Swiss.
The Algarve has the most reliable climate in the country if not Europe. This means pleasant conditions all year round with temperatures ranging between 15º – 30º, little rain and many hours of sun (on average 3500 annually).
If the weather permits then beach-side restaurants, beach clubs and wonderfully landscaped lush green gardens top the list. Other options include wine cellars, casinos and local market places.
