Family-friendly places to stay in the Algarve

There are hundreds of accommodation options within an hour's drive of Faro, from budget apartments and hotels to gorgeous villas and five-star hotels. See James Villa Holidays' Algarve portfolio or check out our recommendations for green places to stay in the Algarve.

In Albufeira, for a good night’s sleep make sure to avoid accommodation near the bars and clubs of the Areias de São João area – try the more peaceful streets of the old town.
