There are so many fun things to do in the Algarve region of Portugal, it’s hard to know where to start.

You can spend a day or two relaxing at the beach, or you can enjoy a more active vacation with some of the best golf courses in the world or even enjoy the region’s many vineyards and wine tours. If you’re looking for a vineyard resort in the Algarve, you should check out the The Vines Resort.

The Vines Resort

This resort offers an amazing location, just a short drive from the city of Portimão. Guests can take advantage of the local amenities close-by, including several beaches, restaurants, clubs, golf courses and shopping centres. There are also many fun activities to enjoy while staying at this resort.



Besides the accommodation it offers, The Vines also has some fun amenities for the enjoyment of their guests. From outdoor swimming pools to tennis courts, padel tennis and volleyball courts, mini-golf and boules – this amazing resort has it all! Pair it with the surrounding nature of the vineyards that encircle the Wine Estate (that’s right, the resort is inside a wine estate!) and the wine activities available and you have yourself an astonishing and memorable vacation!

Cultural and gastronomic experiences

The Algarve is well-known for its beautiful regional cheeses (that can be creamy, soft, curated or consistent and with varied flavour intensities) and aromatic charcuterie (sausages and the traditional chorizo are a must-try), so it is no wonder they can be found in abundance and often in good company of a regional red wine.




If you’re staying in the area then trying the local food and wine is a must! And Quinta dos Vales has your back on this one. Book a tour through the Estate and get to know the wines and also regional cheeses and cold meats in a commented wine tasting.

Turn your holiday home into a permanent vacation house

The  Vines  is a brand-new resort of holiday-homes, located in the heart of a renowned wine estate. As the name suggests, The Vines has picturesque views of seemingly endless vineyards, but is still integrated into an established estate. Quinta dos Vales offers private individuals the possibility to purchase property on its grounds.




During the weeks when you do not wish to use your villa suite yourself, the on-site team can handle the rental to tourists for you. A truly turn-key package is offered, as all upkeep, gardening, maintenance, as well as the rental operation is handled by the experienced Quinta dos Vales rentals team. Upon purchase of one of these units the developer offers a guaranteed return of 3% p.a. on the purchase price during the first 4 years of operations. You get both the feeling of being at home with a team you know by name, as well as the benefit of a professionally organized operation.

If a larger house, with green concerns in mind, amazingly decorated and only a step away from the beach is what you are looking for, then visit the other on-going project in the village of Carvoeiro –  Carvoeiro Gardens.
