Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes
Is there anything better than knowing you have a break to
foreign climes coming up? Jumping on a plane, returning to a place
you know well or somewhere new to explore and experience, is just
the ticket we need to some Autumn happiness.
The way we see it is that changes in latitude, changes your
attitude - especially here in The Algarve.
An autumn break gives you a chance to work on you.
Whether you are jetting off on your own or with your family, the
chance to think positive equals a productive holiday, even if all
it involves is sitting on your sun lounger in the comfort of one of
our luxury rental villas in the regions of Quinta Do Lago, Vale Do
Labo, Vilamoura - what is not to love?
We have spoken to many of those who arrive on Portugese shores
year in, year out, whatever the season, seeking their happy place
and here they find it.
We know only too well that our clients welcome the chance of a
break in a land of paradise, and as one explains from a
testimonial, we can see why.
"I realised that not only had I done a lot of work
throughout the year, I'd done a lot of thinking as well. I was much
clearer about what I wanted to do after a couple of weeks away: I
knew the direction I wanted my life to take."
"Ever since the first time we came here, I've seen every
break to our favourite country (Portugal) as an opportunity. And
yes, I know that's the sort of cliché you see on motivational
posters. It just happens to be true in our case here in the
Travel is something we look forward to, something that we can
appreciate all year round.
The following quote is taken from The Art of Travel,
by Alain de Botton - it exactly sums up what travel does for many -
"Journeys are the midwives of thought. Few places are more
conducive to internal conversations than a moving plane, ship or
train. Large thoughts [require] large views, new thoughts new
places. The mind may be reluctant to think properly when thinking
is all it is supposed to do. It is not necessarily at home that we
encounter our true selves. The furniture insists we cannot change
because it does not; the domestic setting keeps us tethered to the
person we are in ordinary life."
The Algarve allows you break out from the norm, where you can
instead relax and unwind and let your dreams run free: when you
free yourself from the practical and dream about the possible.
We now find ourselves in the month of October, directly after
summer and still some time to go until we can sit in front of the
fire and embrace the Christmas festivities that the back end of
November and December bring, and thus, getting away from it all now
is the best time to give yourself time, space and maybe even a bit
of sun before things get really busy!
The warm autumn weather is ideal for resting and relaxing
outdoors close to your villa complex or exploring our sun-kissed
beaches. Imagine sitting back on your sun lounger and listening to
your favourite playlist or reading your new book - soon you will
forget just what was on your mind, instead you can fully appreciate
paradise in your heart and mind.
Nonetheless, if you like to keep busy, we have a plethora of
activities such as: wonderful golf courses, watersports and much,
much more. The Algarve is also well renowned for its tasty cuisine
in the local restaurants and bars - they are not to be missed - but
maybe a visit to the many vineyards on offer with wine on tap is
more to your flavour?
When all is said and done, it's time to sit up, take notice and
make the most of our gorgeous selection of properties and estates
located within the
Quinta do Lago and
Vale do Lobo resorts. We also offer Luxury Villas in
Vilamoura, along with a small number of wonderful country and
beach retreats in carefully selected locations around the
Cascais and Estoril.

exceptional, contact us to request access to our private portfolio

A change in Algarve latitude provides the best and welcomed
change for you and those joining you on your sun-kissed escape this
Autumn - we are here to start and maintain your positive attitude -
even when it's time to say "farewell, until next time…"
