Christmas in the Algarve - the first year I was here we had a BBQ on the beach on Christmas Day - yes you could tell we were Brits enjoying our first Christmas in the sun! Since then we have become more acclimatised and more local in our way of doing things - no more BBQ's on the beach, turkey with all the trimmings in front of the log fire followed by a walk on the beach, absolutely perfect.
In the last few weeks leading up to the big day there are many different places to go and enjoy the magic of Christmas. If you fancy a day in the Western Algarve, why not check out Natalandia at Lagos Zoo.
It's open every day from 10am until 5pm. While you're down there why not arrange to see some of our lovely properties in and around Lagos at the same time? We have penthouses, villas and apartments for sale. Check out some of the options we have here: Lagos Properties
Something which will be really special for all the family - and for those who are still doing their last minute Christmas shopping! - is a visit to MAR shopping in Loulé. There is a real host of Christmas activities for the whole family, check out what's going on here.
If you are shopping for that ultimate gift, a property, then we have some amazing options in and around Loulé:
For those budding Torvill and Dean's out there why not go to Silves for the day. Here you will find an ice rink, Christmas shows and much, much more. Take a look here for more details: Christmas in Silves

Whatever you are up to this Christmas season, we hope you have an absolutely amazing time and we look forward to meeting you in the New Year and finding you the property of your dreams.
