Overview

Few destinations can match the enduring appeal of Albufeira.

 

Rally here 15 Jan - 15 April 2020.

 

Any dates you book during our rally period will be booked as part of the rally, enjoying any special rally prices, but there is no obligation to take part in any of the rally activities.

This jewel of the Algarve is a well-established and much-loved resort that has grown up around the old fishing village.

 

Renowned among sunseekers and golfers throughout Europe, the area is a perennial favourite for Club members, with many finding wintering on this popular stretch of the Algarve to be addictive. A walkway and cycle path from the site means the town centre, only a mile away, is within easy reach, giving great access to many good quality restaurants, beaches and other local attractions. Of particular interest to motorhomers is the half-hourly bus service from outside the site entrance to Albufeira, linking into the excellent local public transport system. The railway station, giving access to Faro, Portimão, Lagos and Lisbon, is only 2.5 miles away, and the motorway is only 3 miles from site. It travels the length of the Algarve, providing quick and easy connections to the towns and attractions that this lovely coastal region has to offer – or you can choose an unhurried drive through the local towns and villages along the main roads.

 

No site is more committed to, or more experienced in, welcoming Club members than Albufeira, with our rally here having been established over 25 years ago. Albufeira is set to remain a much loved, and much sought after, winter destination.

  • Centrally located for the Algarve coast, on the outskirts of Albufeira, about 2 miles from the town centre and fishermen’s beach
