Vilapura is a small-scale Bed & Breakfast in the Algarve, Portugal. The rooms are tastefully decorated with design.
This is a naturist B&B run by the Portuguese couple Carlos and Filomena. It is a small-scale naturist resort where you can relax. The town of Tavira is only 6 km from this complex and access to the famous Barril Beach is only 3 kilometers. Here is a beautiful nudist beach.
Portugal is a popular holiday destination for the Dutch, but in terms of naturism not much is possible. Vilapura ligt in de Algarve, that is the southernmost province of Portugal. The landscape of the Algarve is very varied. There are lagoons and miles of sandy beaches to the east of Faro, including one of the most beautiful naturist beaches in Tavira, Barrilbeach and to the west of Faro, the coast is dotted with rock formations and small beaches.
East of Faro the coast is approx 60 kilometers long and there are the famous seaside resorts such as Olhão, Santa Luzia in Tavira, where tourism is very important, but not as developed as on the Spanish Costas. You will hardly find any high-rise buildings here. Many cities also have a beautiful old town and Tavira is also very cozy. The hilly interior of the Algarve lies just behind the coast and is still virtually untouched. The highest point in the Algarve is the Fóia with 902 meter. The forest fires that often occur in Portugal in summer rarely or never reach the Algarve.
At certain points on the Algarve coast, east of Faro, is a real Wadden region, that floods at high tide. At high tide the water is deep enough to enter.
It's in Portugal 1 hour earlier than in the Netherlands.
Portuguese cuisine is a bit like Spanish cuisine. The most famous sweet dish from Portugal is Pastel de Belém, this is a kind of pastry with pudding and you really have to try it! Many fish and shellfish can be found in Portuguese cuisine.
The vast majority of the population speaks Portuguese, with several dialects. Portuguese is a Roman world language and outside of Portugal it is also spoken in Brazil, Angola, Guinea-Bissau, Sao Tome in Principe, East Timor, Cape Verde, Mozambique, and other areas, like Goa and Malacca (Cristao). It is also spoken by a minority in Macau, where it is an official language.
Portugal is part of the European Union and you can also pay with the Euro here.
Nearly all cards will be accepted for paying. Credit cards are also accepted.
Although Tavira is on the Atlantic Ocean, it has a Mediterranean climate. This means that the summers are warm and dry and the winters are mild and wet. Most rain falls from November to March. It rarely rains in summer and when it rains, it never takes long.
