A holiday in Porches delivers a real Portuguese experience. Discover the Algarve as you might have imagined it before the tourists arrived! Porches holidays are like stepping back in time.

Once a teeny fishing hamlet, the village streets are lined with pretty traditional houses with painted doors and windows and the church bell tower is the focal point.

Little more than a delightful and typical Algarvian village, Porches is renowned for its excellent wine, but it is also a well known for its clay pits and subsequent pottery industry. There are many pottery workshops all thriving today, producing pots with beautiful hand-painted designs and ceramics with traditional motifs .

Porches has ancient origins, and there are lovely architectural reminders of its historical past. Pay a visit to the 16th century Mother Church and Nossa Senhora da Rocha Fort with its dramatic location overlooking the wild Atlantic - a place of great beauty. The Nossa Senhora da Rocha chapel purports to have enjoyed an apparition of the Virgin Mary.

Situated just 10k east of Lagos, holidays in Porches emphasise the quieter side of life where not a lot happens apart from pleasant trips to the fabulous beaches, followed by delicious meals in local restaurants to sample some char-grilled sardines or steaming bowls of cataplana. Porches holidays are for the lotus eaters and for those who enjoy a local experience.

There are no direct flights to Porches, but Aer Lingus operates regular flights to Faro which is approx. 1 hour 15 minutes away and we have great accommodation options in the area.
