Algarve Villa Holidays for Couples

Choosing dates to go on holiday is that much simpler without children to consider and if you’re a couple travelling without youngsters, the school holidays may well be the very weeks you choose to avoid. Romantic strolls along the beach can seem much more appealing in the serenity of a relatively child-free zone and if you’re looking for some quality time away with your partner, privacy and tranquillity are probably quite high on your list of villa must-haves.

Affinity Villas has a number of villas that could end the search for your holiday haven if a romantic getaway is on your agenda. Whether you’re hoping to win the attention of someone new or simply looking to escape your everyday routine, a break at one of our Algarve villas can provide much needed fun and relaxation.
