Portugal is a fascinating country and about 20 million tourists reassure this statement every year. Hiring a car is the best way to tour Portugal (the country has good standards for roads and highways) and to hire a luxury car in Portugal is definitely the ultimate option… Naturally, Lisbon, the capital, is recommended for any visit, however, one of the most appealing and popular tourist destinations in Portugal (and in Europe!) is the Algarve region in the south of Portugal. The most convenient way to start traveling Algarve is to arrive at Faro Airport and hire your Mini at Faro's international airport (another option is to rent a Mini at Lisbon and drive 300 km south to Algarve). The tour possibilities, attractions, beautiful villages in Algarve are immense. you can hire a Mini at Faro, which deserves a special tour itself, and drive along the coast to Vilamoura (in the Loulé municipality), which is a town known for it's golf scene and famous gold courts in and around it (one recommended hotel is Tivoli Victoria). Further on to the west is Albufeira, a fishing village that became a known resort in Algarve (recommended hotels are Vila Joya and the Sharaton Algarve Hotel). Continue with your Mini and drive further to the picturesque fishing village Carvoeiro (Lagoa), and further on you can find Portimão, one of the largest cities in Algarve, famous for its old city and beautiful beaches (Praia da Rocha and Praia do Vau). Another town to visit is Lagos, once a major port of Portugal. There is so many things to see and do in Algarve, so a Mini for hire is a perfect way to start your vacation in style. Note that Portugal is famous for its special traditional hotels, Pousadas de Portugal, so look for them to find the best accommodation for your holiday. Rent a Mini in Portugal and experience it, and the Algarve region, to its fullest!
