Hotel Pinhal Do Sol
The Hotel Pinhal Do Sol is situated in a prestigious location, with excellent opportunities to explore the rest of the Algarve region.
The hotel aims to provide visitors with a unique holiday experience, combining high quality accommodation and first class hospitality for a relaxing, stress-free holiday. The Algarve is an area well known for its warm, Mediterranean climate and its dramatic coastline that hosts some of Europe’s top beaches. It is no wonder that so many tourists revisit the Algarve again and again.
The Algarve resort of Quarteira is located in the far south of Portugal, along a stretch of coastline famed for its stunning beaches and trendy resorts. It is overlooked by mountains to the north and the Atlantic ocean lies to the west and southwest. The landscapes in the region are somewhat arid – in fact during the summer some parts of the Algarve may resemble more of a desert than temperate grassland.
In the mountain valleys there are numerous small villages where the traditional culture of the Algarve continues to live on. Here there is little in the way or commercial or external influence. However, in stark contrast the coastal resorts are modern and multi-cultural, catering to the tourist industry.
The weather in the summer can be notoriously hot in the Algarve’s interior, but considerably less oppressive along the coast, where a sea breeze helps to modify the temperatures somewhat. The swimming season is roughly from May to October and by the middle of August the sea temperatures off the coast range from between 22 to 25 degrees Celsius, which is ideal for bathing.
Facilities at the Hotel Pinhal Do Sol include a swimming pool, children’s pool, poolside bar, restaurant, 24-hour front desk, laundry facilities, barbecue grill, pool table, currency exchange, laundry/dry cleaning service, internet access (small charge), television in the lobby, multilingual staff, lifts and complimentary breakfast.
Facilities in the rooms include satellite/cable TV, air-conditioning, balcony, in-room personal safe, private bathroom, shower and a sofa bed. A wake-up call service is offered and all rooms are to be regularly cleaned and maintained by the housekeeping staff at the hotel.
Things to do nearby
There are numerous attractions in the local area, including the famous resort of Albufeira, situated further along the coast towards the east. This is a beautiful and picturesque city with a wide variety of attractions for tourists, including trendy nightclubs, smart restaurants and elegant bars.
Perhaps you might also be interested in a boat tour with the Algarve Seafaris – the perfect way in which to get away from the heat on the land and enjoy the cooling sea breeze! There is also an excellent zoo marine located at Guia (no more than about 10km from Albufeira) with a number of exciting rides for the young and old alike.
You may even want to consider travelling much further afield and heading to Lisbon and Seville. Each of these cities is a haven for culture seekers. Lisbon, the capital of Portugal, is about a 150 mile drive north and Seville (Spain), one of the major cities within reach of the Algarve, is a similar distance to the east. In Lisbon you can explore such attractions as Praco do Comercio or the Castle of Sao Jorge. In Seville, you can admire the cathedral or take a stroll to the Plaza de Espana.
However, it would of course be difficult to visit all of the main attractions in these cities in just one day trip. If you would prefer to spend less time travelling and more time staying local then consider a visit to the former Algarve capital of Silves. This is an ancient city with numerous historical landmarks, providing a good learning experience for children. In addition, you can also witness marvellous panoramic views of the coast from the historic site of Fortaleza de Santa Catarina, nearby.
