Found a super bargain for ye! Spend five nights at the beautiful Algarve and travel with Ebookers.ie. Taking a trip into the sun just before winter starts is just the right thing to do. It certainly gets easier to endure the long, cold and dark Irish days over the Novembers and Decembers of this world, so treat yourself to this fun holiday!
Fly from Dublin Airport to Faro and take a taxi since it’s considerably quicker on buses (it’s either 8 euro for a near four hour bus trip or 40 euro for a 50 minute taxi ride) . It’ll take an hour but since the taxi prices aren’t that expensive you only pay €40 for the trip. If you consider sharing it, it’s not so bad :)
First thing’s first Amarilis…Club Amarilis that is! ;) You will be staying at the 3-star Club Amarilis in Portimao (4/5 on Tripadvisor) and you are located only 150 metres from the beach Praia da Rocha. In the self catering apartments you find all you need to make your stay comfortable and a kitchenette and cooking facilities are of course also there!
On-site you find a large pool, with a snack bar, a garden and even a mini-market, if you don’t want to go to the ones outside the resort. But you have to go outside and discover the beautiful scenery of the Algarve! So rent bikes for a day or go on a hike to explore the surrounding area if you feel like doing something outside the hotel. Or you spend some time trying out water sports, there are many opportunities at the beach waiting for you! You won’t regret it! This holiday is a great budget trip for couples, singles and families, a real all-rounder!
