The Algarve Portal is one of the leading multilingual Internet portals dedicated to the Algarve, Portugal. Since its launch in 2001 several millions of visitors from all over the world have already used it in search of information about the Algarve, to plan their stay in Portugal or to book the services of our local business partners.
We, the authors, Karin Dostal-Stahr and Juergen P. Dostal, have been fascinated by the Algarve - the friendly people, the mild Atlantic climate, the variety of landscapes, the rich cultural and historical heritage and much more - since we came to the Club Med near Albufeira for a golf holiday in 1987. That’s why many years later we decided to make the Algarve our new home. And we would like to share our passion for the Algarve and Portugal with you - the visitors to the Algarve-Portal!
The Algarve-Portal has been fundamentally re-designed in 2014 to also meet the needs of the growing population of users of mobile devices such as smart phones and tablets.
