Landscapes & winery
Much of the Algarve's charm resides in its ability to provide top class touristic facilities and yet retain its own identity, easily visible in the traditional villages and economical activities of the area. Travelling in a comfortable Land Rover jeep you can discover more of the hidden beauties of this region.
Porches is renowned for its beautiful and original pottery. The Porches Pottery workshop is one of the best representatives of this art and many of the traditional methods of production are still used here today. You can see the pottery being made and painted by by the local artisans.
The fishing village of Benagil is perched above the Atlantic ocean and a tiny but picturesque beach. The uninterupted sound of the Atlantic tracks you to the village's fishing activities. Heading towards the resort of Carvoeiro we visit Algar Seco. Here you can view the amazing limestone caves and grottoes carved and eroded out of the coastline by sea, sun and winds over the centuries.
We enjoy a stroll through the charming village of Ferragudo along the cobbled streets down to the small harbour. The quayside restaurants are grilling their catch of the day at the waterfront and the grill chefs keeping an eye on their fishing line into the water at the same time. This part of the central Algarve is traditionally where most wine is grown. Last stop is at a local winery where you can enjoy a guided tour and taste some of the wines produced in this region.
