Casa Serena - Algarve villas with an exceptional location for your holidays in Portugal!

The Eastern Algarve is rightly described as an unspoilt gem, with some of the most beautiful beaches in the whole of the Algarve.  At this point, the rugged coves of the Western coast turn into wide sandy beaches perfect for children and adults alike.  Praia Verde combines the delights of a blue flag beach with the tranquillity of surrounding pine forests. 

Casa Serena holiday villa is perfectly situated about 40 minutes from Faro airport by motorway, and around 10 minutes from the Portuguese/Spanish border town of Vila Real de Santo Antonio to the East and 15-20 minutes from the regional centre of Tavira (which dates back to Roman times) to the West.  A day visit to Seville is only 2 hours away.

Monte Gordo to the east and Altura to the west of Praia Verde are small but lively, family orientated beach resorts, only 5 minutes away by car ( or try walking there along the beach!) where you will find a wide variety of bars, cafes, shops, banks and restaurants.

With reasonably priced flights from most UK airports (see our UK flights page), the Algarve is only 2 hours 45 minutes away from most UK airports.

Car Hire

Car hire is excellent value and easy to arrange and is highly recommended to enjoy everything this beautiful part of Portugal has to offer.  Local Portuguese car hire firms are mostly reliable, with one or two exceptions. Based on our experience we do not recommend 'Thrifty' car hire as they have very high charges for minor defects, that all other car hire firms we have dealt with count as wear and tear.   If you need help with car hire, let us know.

If you are new to car hire in Portugal we recommend you book your car through us from here in the UK.  We have contacts with tried and trusted local car hire firms and can assure you of very competitve rates, new or nearly new vehicles, with collection and drop-off from Faro airport.


Summers are hot, 30ºC or over, but with a warm breeze from the Atlantic;  Winter is mild with a climate which can provide around 15ºC - 18ºC and perfect blue skies, nothing better for lifting the spirits.
