’Tis the season to be jolly... and there’s a jolly lot of goings on this month in the Algarve. Christmas fairs and markets are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Christmas: there’s more happening in the Algarve this month, a lot more - so take a peek and see what there is to do...

Christmas shopping is a unique and festive experience at Algarve Christmas fairs and markets.

The Victoria Course, Vilamoura, hosts this year’s Portugal Masters between 9 and 12 October. With a fantastic line up of golfing professionals, superb prizes and a stunning course, it promises to be the Algarve’s golf event of the year.
The average weather in the Algarve for October is a warm and comfortable 19° and right now the sun is shining. But where does the time go?
