Algarve holidays

Back in Paris. Spent some nice time in the south of Portugal, Algarve, with kids and grand-kids. Blue sky and a pleasant temperature of around 28°C (82°F) every day. I have already posted about this area in some previous posts, so now I will just show a few pictures.

First a little geographical reminder.
The house we had rented was up on a hill, close to the coast and the cities of…

… Faro and Olhao.

There are some islands in front of these cities which you can reach by boat and then find some fantastic beaches, far from overcrowded.

You find other beaches along the coast, some with crowds and some with less crowds - which you can reach by foot when the tide is low.

Going westwards, the landscape changes with high cliffs, with interruption for some sandy beaches.

At last, some pictures from smaller cities and villages… Lagos, Tavira… and the typical paved cobblestones, mostly white and black, sometimes red.
