The Vitors Plaza offers a memorable holiday experience in a tranquil setting near the vibrant coastal resort of Portimao, at the footsteps of the Algarve. It offers visitors high quality apartments and excellent hospitality and delivers a comforting and accommodating holiday experience.
The apartments provide an excellent base from which to explore the many attractions of the southern Portuguese Algarve. The fairly quiet location provides a welcoming retreat for tourists but the popular resort of Portimao is only 2 miles away for a more lively atmosphere. The Algarve is famed for being the sunshine capital of Europe. This is no overestimation: the region enjoys, on average, over 3000 hours of sunshine a year. This means the sun shines here about twice as much as it does in an average year in Southern England.
The apartments are just a few minutes’ drive from the bustling resort of Portimao, which is abundant in shops, cafes, restaurants, bars and nightclubs for visitors. The stunning beach of Praia da Rocha, one of the most impressive in the Algarve, is just over a mile away and is easily accessible by foot in 15 to 20 minutes. The area lies near the south western fringe of the Iberian peninsula, about a 150 mile drive from Seville (Spain) and Lisbon, the capital of Portugal.
The Algarve region is notorious for its hot, dry summers and its mild winters. However, the coastal areas are often considerably cooler than the interior – where daytime temperatures can regularly reach 40c or more during the summer. The sea temperatures off the coast of the Algarve are high during the summer months, typically peaking between 22 and 25 degrees Celsius by August. The swimming season is generally from May to October, although even in early November the sea here is known to be warmer than the English Channel at the height of summer.
When out in the sun for any period of time, sun protection is strongly recommended between the months of April and August. The Algarve coast is overlooked by large hills and mountains to the north, with small villages that offer plenty of respite from the busy resorts on the coast.
Vitors Plaza offers an indoor pool, whirlpool, a 24 hour reception, money exchange, restaurant and a bar. Other activities include table tennis, football, mini-golf, tennis, shuffleboard and a bowling alley. There is also entertainment 3 nights a week (depending on the time of year), offering live music or karaoke.
Apartment facilities include TV (cable/satellite), bathroom, radio, kitchenette (with fridge and 2 electric rings), telephone, air-conditioning and a terrace or balcony. Maid service is 5 times a week. There is a shuttle bus taking you to the beach, running during the week
Things to do nearby
The beach of Praia do Rocha offers exceptional scenery with turquoise waters and secluded rocky coves nearby. For photographers it is an unbeatable location for landscape pictures and family photos for your holiday album. It is ideal for swimming and snorkelling and provides a safe haven for relaxation with plenty of open space. On this south-facing beach you can witness beautiful sunrises and sunsets almost every day or you can go off on cliff walks and explore the many caves close by.
Heading inland across the Algarve, a trip to Silves provides a brilliant day out. Here, you can explore a number of historic attractions in a city that was once the capital of the Algarve. Other nearby destinations include the port of Lagos – which has an impressive fort, or the busy coastal resort of Albufeira – charming with plenty of vibrant, tourist-focused attractions. Further afield you may even want to consider a day trip Lisbon and Seville, two cities of immense historical and cultural importance.
