Rather than compromise and settle for a holiday with which they might not fall in love, those planning a trip on a tight budget would do well to take a tip or two from those savvy holidaymakers who are finding luxury excursions without breaking the budget this summer.
The Algarve in Portugal has always been a firm favourite with British holidaymakers thanks to its near-flawless climate, stretches of wide, sandy beaches and friendly locals providing a hearty range of local food and drink for them to enjoy. However, there are a few unexplored corners of the Algarve that have yet to become swarmed with tourists, but still have more than enough going on to be thought of as an attractive destination to those in the know. Olhos D’Agua is one of these resorts.
Summer luxury in Olhos D’Agua
Hotels like the Porto Bay Falesia offer a slice of luxury on a budget. This hotel is located just 7km from the main resort of Albufeira with its lively bars and clubs and is nestled away in a quiet bay, located on the beachfront. Unsurprisingly, it is becoming a firm favourite with older couples who want to get away from it all. With some tourists growing weary of the kind of holiday where bars and clubs keep them awake until the small hours, the Porto Bay Falesia is the perfect antidote to this.
Relaxing on holiday
A recent study by insurance providers Aviva showed that most people go on holiday to spend quality time relaxing with family and friends. The business development manager at Aviva spoke about this study, saying:
“It seems the days of rushing off to escape home life are behind us with friends and family now an integral part of our holiday plans. Holidays are a great time to get away from the daily grind and spend a bit of quality time with our nearest and dearest.”
With this in mind, a relaxing holiday in luxurious surroundings is just as important as a cheap holiday. Luckily, holidaymakers now have the opportunity to cater for both relaxation and budget thanks to holiday companies offering cheap breaks to locations like the Algarve. Hotels like the Porto Bay Falesia are helping to ensure that, while UK folk continue to watch the purse strings, they can still relax and unwind with their loved ones on their holidays this summer without skimping on the basic building blocks of a great holiday.
