Day 2 New Year's Eve - Silves, Monchique and Foia

After breakfast, we'll head to Silves, the historic fortified town that was once the capital of the Algarve. Landmarks you'll discover here include the Moorish Silves Castle and the pretty white Gothic cathedral, as well as the ancient town walls. The picturesque hills of the Algarve, divided by the Rio Arade, make a beautiful backdrop for the town. Next, it's off to the mountain town of Monchique, where red-roofed houses stand out against the green slopes. The town is overlooked by Fóia, the Algarve's highest peak.

Day 3 New Year's Day - Armação de Perâ

There's no better time to get some serious relaxing done than New Year's Day, and that's just what's on the agenda. After breakfast, spend the day however you would like. You might want to go and see the charity swim which takes place on the beach on this day every year, or to follow the coast to the Capela Nossa Senhora da Rocha, perched on a jutting clifftop. Get together with your travelling companions for dinner this evening at the hotel. 

Meals included: B,D

Day 4 Quinta dos Vales

After a leisurely morning, the afternoon promises some real delights, as we make our way to the Quinta dos Vales Wine Estate. From its hilltop position, you'll be treated to wonderful views of expansive vineyards and the glorious Algarve coastline.
