Residents in northern European climes might now be rueing the end of summer, but that doesn’t mean the sunny holiday season is also over. On the contrary. In popular resorts such as the Algarve, summery weather and a diverse and comprehensive array of outdoor leisure attractions can be enjoyed throughout autumn – and even beyond.
This fact was highlighted by IMS Consulting in a news release noting that holidaymakers can still extend their summer season in idyllic destinations which, in many ways, are even more appealing in autumn. Destinations such as a top-five of Palma de Mallorca, Ibiza, Baix Empordà (Cataluña), Douro Valley (near Oporto in Portugal)… and the Algarve.
According to the global consultancy company, which specialises in travel and luxury hotels, the Algarve coast is an excellent option for a belated holiday or a weekend getaway by the sea. “With the end of summer, this popular Portuguese region offers its calmer side, providing visitors with an oasis of extensive sandy beaches with crystal-clear waters and almost unimaginable landscapes. Holidays can be enjoyed outside the more crowded summer months, while still including long days of sunny weather and pleasant temperatures.”
For an especially memorable holiday, with all the luxury trimmings in addition to excellent weather, IMS showcases the Eden Resort in Albufeira – just 35 kilometres from Faro Airport. Even though this is one of the most touristy areas in the Algarve, with the region’s finest beaches five minutes away, the resort is set up with an “enclosed” configuration, enabling guests to enjoy relaxing days in absolute tranquillity and security.
It has also been orientated towards catering for the whole family, with exclusive services including a concierge for babies, and a comprehensive range of 130 apartments and 62 villas, of two, three and four bedrooms (some with private pools).
Its design respects the traditional local architecture, with expansive green areas and spacious terraces and balconies where guests can take advantage of the Algarve’s renowned outdoor lifestyle and luminous days, even during autumn.
Extending over 11 hectares, the resort’s leisure amenities include an open-air pool for families and another outside pool for adults only, a tennis court, a football pitch and a Kids Club, as well as the new Aqua Fun Park. Eden Resort also offers diverse culinary options, and the Adam & Eve Spa, with an indoor pool, sauna, Turkish bath and treatment rooms.
