The UK is set to go sports crazy this summer, with events such as Euro 2012, Wimbledon and, of course, the Olympics and the Paralympics all directly featuring a range of British sporting talent. Sports fever is already gripping the nation, and many who aren’t so fanatical about the multitude of tournaments taking place this summer will be looking for any means to escape and enjoy a relaxing break away from the competitive and all-consuming nature of these events. Premier Holidays has the solution in the form of their stunning selection of Algarve holiday villas. With sizes ranging from one-bedroomed apartments to luxurious villas which sleep up to fourteen, Premier Holidays has a self-catering solution to suit anyone looking for a much-needed break this summer.
The Algarve region is famed for many things: its stunning stretches of sandy white beaches, incredible cliff formations, the warm climate and its hospitality towards tourists. Whether staying in a family-friendly resort like Vilamoura, exploring the historical streets of Lagos or relaxing in the quaint fishing village of Luz, there is something for all guests to enjoy.
The Vilamoura area is perfect for leisure and recreation, with a whole host of shopping boutiques, restaurants and bars. For those who can stomach a little sport, or whose other halves won’t be able to handle more than a few days without a little competition, this region has some of the best golf courses in the country, as well as many beautiful beaches to while away the day. The Villa Vanessa Algarve villa is a modern property suitable for a family, just two kilometres from the main marina in Vilamoura, where there are theme parks and sea-life shows to keep everyone occupied. Sleeping up to six people, the villa features elegant landscaped gardens overlooked by a patio dining area, and shares a large communal pool with the surrounding properties.
The famous Algarvian restaurants which feature prominently in the town of Guia are famed for being the birthplace of piri-piri chicken, as well as a whole host of other regional delicacies. The Casa Rosinhas Algarve holiday villa sleeps up to eight people, ideal for two families escaping Britain together, and is situated just outside of Guia. Zoomarine and Aqualand theme parks are just a short drive away, with the opportunity to swim with dolphins also available nearby. With a private, optionally heated pool, four bedrooms, three bathrooms and a private terrace with delightful views of the surrounding countryside, the relaxing atmosphere at Casa Rosinhas will feel a world away from the summer of sport taking place back in the UK.
