The Algarve's charming fishing village Ferragudo

What would you do with a whole week off work? In my case, I don’t even have to think about it: travel somewhere nice and warm. I have to admit that I have a soft spot for Portugal. Why? It’s kind of hard to explain, but it has to do with the calm and serene atmosphere that characterizes the country, and especially its southern region, the Algarve. I sometimes feel like I’ve stepped back in time when I’m in this area, and that is definitely a welcome respite from the hectic pace of my office job.

So yes, a one-week trip to the Algarve was in order. As I looked at the map trying to pick a destination, my mind automatically jumped to images of remote sandy beaches, top-notch golf courses, and fantastic food and wine. The whitewashed fishing village of Ferragudo - with a permanent population of less than 2,000 and just across the Arade River from the city of Portimão - seemed to fit perfectly with my plans, so I didn’t think twice and booked my flights and accommodation. Here’s how my weeklong holiday in Ferragudo went."
