The gloriously sunny and beachy Algarve is heroic when it comes to family villa holidays. Not only does it have the perfect combo of coast and countryside, it’s also the heartland of fabulous water sports, top region for first-time surf lessons, spoiled for dramatic Atlantic panoramas, and more gifted at golf than almost anywhere else in Europe.

It’s a favourite destination for Villa Plus, and the ideal setting for some of their loveliest family villas, all with private pools, and each as unique and original as the Algarve itself. Great value holidays are another feature of this fabulous region, and Villa Plus are happy to continue that grand tradition too with prices starting at just £769 per villa, per week. Have a look at their top five picks for 2018, available to book now.
