Attractive Alcoutim Holidays

If you thought Alcoutim holidays were all about lively nightlife, neon bars and teeming streets, it’s time to think again. At the eastern edge of the Algarve, just a stone’s throw from Spain, you will find a sleepy, peaceful village where the pace of life is slow and the emphasis is on enjoying the natural beauty that surrounds you.

Alcoutim holidays are perfect for anyone who’s looking for relaxation amid the most picturesque surroundings in Portugal. It features a small beach on the Guadiana River and some of the most impressive hiking country in southern Europe. It really is a hidden gem.

The Ambience of Alcoutim

There aren’t many accommodation options to choose from in Alcoutim, purely because this is only a small village that’s located some distance away from the more familiar Algarve destinations like Monte Gordo, Tavira, and Faro. What you will find here, however, is a luxuriously comfortable stay in the heart of the most peaceful countryside.

The main accommodation in the village is to be found close to the banks of the Guadiana River. Waking up in the morning is always more pleasurable when you have such a natural wonder to gaze at. For many visitors, Alcoutim represents a different type of holiday entirely, and it’s one that’s worth repeating.

Culture Filled Holidays in Alcoutim

First and foremost, a holiday to Alcoutim will be of particular interest to anyone who likes the idea of a sunny summer holiday who are looking for a slice of culture. There are several places here to grab a coffee, a cold beer or a delicious home-cooked meal, but there are no bass-thumping clubs and no over-crowded streets.

If you’re got the kids in tow, Alcoutim holidays are great because they offer a golden opportunity to see some of the most beautiful scenery that has remained unspoilt for centuries. Long walks through the countryside are highly recommended, because they give you a chance to see the Algarve from a whole new perspective.

And if you want to enjoy a few hours amid the crowded party scene, the coastal towns of the region are only a short drive away. That way, you can savour the sights and sounds of the noisier areas and return to blissful peace and quiet when the day is done. By choosing a holiday in the sleepier resort of Alcoutim, you can enjoy the best of both worlds without having to feel stressed out.
