Villas in Aljezur

Holiday with us in Aljezur

James Villa Holidays have 2 villas in Aljezur

Situated in one of Europe's most beautiful nature parks, Aljezur is a small, traditional market town dominated by the ruins of its hilltop Moorish Castle, which offers fine views across the surrounding countryside. The oldest surviving building, apart from the castle, is the Misericordia Church, which was built in the 16th century and rebuilt after the 1755 earthquake. There are several spectacular, unspoilt beaches in the vicinity, many of which are popular with surfers with the most accessible being Amoreira, Monte Clerigo and Arrifana. Discover and enjoy the hospitality of the local people, the Algarvean cooking and the beauty of this natural park (not yet spoilt by mass tourism). Alternatively, the brighter lights of Lagos Marina and Parque da floresta golf resort are also just a short drive away.

Excursions and Places of interest

Natural areas of beauty

Parque Natural do Sudoeste Alentejano e Costa Vicentina
Stretching over 100 km, the region’s protected nature park is teeming with unique species of animal and plant life, including rare fishing eagles, white storks and otters as well as numerous wild orchids. Whether you explore on foot, by bike or by car, this vast, unspoiled landscape offers a completely different, treasured experience of the Algarve.

Other excursions

Odeceixe
One of the area’s traditional whitewashed villages, Odeceixe tumbles down the hillside opposite the Odeceixe River and down towards the dramatic coastline. Popular with surfers and families, it has a very laid-back ambience with handful of bars and cafés dotted around the main square. The lovely sheltered beach is a enjoyable walk or a short drive some 4 kms from the town and you can even visit a working windmill above the village that still grinds the grains in the traditional way.

Sagres
The cheerful, laidback town of Sagres is well worth a visit, its picturesque harbour buzzing as the fishing boats return with their catch. Scarily steep cliffs are frequented by hardy fishermen eager for a special catch while the magnificent waves on the west coast attract surfers from all around the world. Take a seat in the main square to relax and watch the world go by and be sure to sample some of the superb seafood on offer at the town’s numerous fish restaurants.

Castles

Castelo de Aljezur
It’s a steep drive up a narrow, winding road to reach the car park beside the remains of the 10th century Castelo de Aljezur, however you’ll be rewarded with magnificent panoramic views and a wonderful sense of history. There’s no charge to wander around the ruins before driving back down for a look around the old town afterwards.

Other Places of interest

Cape St. Vincent lighthouse
Europe’s most southwestern point, the dramatic Cape St Vincent has played an enormous part in centuries of rituals and exploration; it remains a moving sight with rugged cliffs either side and pounding Atlantic waves crashing onto the shore. The striking red and white lighthouse here was originally built in 1846 and has since been enlarged and modernised. It’s one of the most powerful in Europe and of course is much needed to guide vessels sailing into and from the Atlantic Ocean. There’s also a small but fascinating museum showcasing Sagres’s role in Portugal’s maritime and navigation history.
