Algarve help

Jump to last reply

I will be vacationing with my family of 4 (2 boys--10 and 13) in Portugal in late June/early July. We want to spend 5-7 days in The Algarve. I'd like a stay in a place on or near the beach, preferably with a patio with a nice view of the water as well as access to a pool. We prefer somewhere with nearby restaurants and possibly some shops. We prefer more quaint/quiet vs touristy with lots of people. Does anyone have recommendations on the best areas to stay in The Algarve that would fit these preferences?? Can you provide some specific accommodation recommendations? I'd love to find something under $200/night for min 2 beds/4 people, but would consider up to $300 for something amazing.

Also, we will be coming from Lisbon. Would you recommend the train or renting a car to get to the Algarve? We'd like the ability to visit other locations in the Algarve. Is transportation between towns pretty easy (bus? Taxi? Uber?)? If we had a car, is parking a problem?
