Some consider Alte, which has existed since the period of the Roman occupation, to be the village most typical of the Algarve. With their whitewashed houses, Windows and façades edged with colourful borders, ornate chimneys and pervasive air of tranquillity, the streets of Alte's historic centre have retained much of their original charm. The area around the church is a delightful snapshot of the real Algarve.
Fonte Pequena and Fonte Grande
For centuries these two springs were a meeting place for the women of the village who would fill their water pitchers and do their washing. Tables and stone benches have now been installed, in the cool shade of the overarching trees, making this an ideal spot for having a picnic or just relaxing.
It was our first time using this service, we found it very efficient service. Both driver we had were curtious and friendly and had good english. The price of the trips was fair.
Great service-no hassle
Excellent service. The driver that collected us from the airport was extremely helpful in locating our accommodation.
