When it comes to the perfect celebrity holiday, the Algarve seems to have it all: luxury resorts, award-winning golf courses, Michelin-starred restaurants, VIP nightclubs, fantastic weather and pristine golden sandy beaches. But it’s the privacy that they can find here that makes the destination one of the most sought-after by the world’s famous people.
We’re all going on a summer holiday
Since the 60s, when the Algarve was ‘discovered’ by foreigners from Northern Europe, the region’s holiday appeal has been unchanging, with the exception that now, more than ever, high-profile personalities are finding its attractions irresistible, not least because they can get away from the flashlights and media frenzy, and enjoy peace and tranquility.
We all know the Algarve is the perfect holiday destination and now more and more celebs are arriving for some chill out time in the sun. They are just about guaranteed privacy if that’s what they want (not all of them want it); then there’s the safety aspect for them and their children too, and the luxury that they can find here.
Home sweet home
However, not all the famous celebs use the Algarve just for holidays, many have opted to buy homes here and enjoy the year round benefits of sun, sand and surf. Of course, many of the “resident celebrities” have homes elsewhere in the world where they go for some time out, but they always return to the irresistible draw of the timeless Algarve.
The super rich are just like the rest of us when it comes to choice. Some opt for a quiet and secluded villa in the hills, far from the madding crowd, where they can relax and be themselves. Others go for ostentatious or even brash homes that make a bold statement of wealth, where their owners can pose, see and be seen. Whatever or wherever they choose to call home, you can be sure they love living in the Algarve.
