Some consider Alte, which has existed since the period of the Roman occupation, to be the village most typical of the Algarve. With their whitewashed houses, Windows and façades edged with colourful borders, ornate chimneys and pervasive air of tranquillity, the streets of Alte's historic centre have retained much of their original charm. The area around the church is a delightful snapshot of the real Algarve.
Fonte Pequena and Fonte Grande
For centuries these two springs were a meeting place for the women of the village who would fill their water pitchers and do their washing. Tables and stone benches have now been installed, in the cool shade of the overarching trees, making this an ideal spot for having a picnic or just relaxing.
The service was excellent. The driver expected us with a name sign at the Faro airport even though he had to wait almost 40 minutes because he luggage was not delivered promptly
Great service. On time and easily found. Both our drivers were very pleasant and helpful.
We were delighted with the service.
