January - March

€1150 per week
€2100 for 2 weeks
€175 per night minimum 3 nights

January to March are traditionally perhaps the coolest months, although often January is warm enough to still enjoy the beaches. The evenings can go quite cool, and can have quite a nippy breeze at times. But  the spring flowers are starting to bloom and the almond blossom looks amazing. Obviously there are occasional rainy days and a few cloudy days but most days are blue skies and sunny and the temperatures are very pleasant (maybe 16°-18°C in the shade, but feeling in the mid 20’s in the sun). A light sweatshirt or jumper is normally all that you will need during the day and a warmer jacket for evenings.

April - June

€1550 per week
€2750 for 2 weeks
€215 per night minimum 3 night stay

March April and May in the Algarve are lovely months because all the spring flowers are out and everywhere is green and fresh. The temperatures are normally 20-25°C (feeling like high 20’s to low 30’s in the sun) and although there may still be a shower of rain, the norm is for blue skies and sun. It’s great beach weather but also still good for getting out into the countryside and exploring. It’s still quite quiet so is perfect for getting around without the hustle and bustle of July and August

July - August

€1800 per week
€3400 for 2 weeks  

July and August are the hottest months of the year in the Algarve region, and also the sunniest and driest. July is the sunniest month of all on average, with an average of 369 hours of bright sunshine at the region's capital, Faro, which is an average of just under 12 hours per day.

September - October

€1550 per week
€2750 for 2 weeks
€215 per night minimum 3 night stay

September and October are perhaps two of the best months to visit the Algarve – the temperatures hover around the mid to high 20's (in the shade) and often reach the mid 30's in the sun. ... If exploring the Algarve is more your thing – it's so much nicer weather for walking around. Although you may get the occasional shower in October and evenings can be cooler

November - December

€1150 per week
€2150 for 2 weeks
€175 per night minimum 3 nights

November to December is the ideal time for a short winter break or even a long weekend to the Algarve, to unwind before all the rush of Christmas. The days, although they can go a little cooler, still tend to be between 17-20°C in the shade, of course feeling warmer in the sun. You may get an occasional shower and the evenings are much cooler
