Algarve: Time and Nature

Hello Countryhome fellows,
It´s with great joy that today I´m publishing another set of M.`s pictures.
All the pictures above were taken in Algarve countryside and show details of the passage of time trough our local nature.
Enjoy :)


My Lost Paradise in Algarve

Last month, I took the above picture at my favorite beach and thought about sharing it here in My Countryhome blog.
This beach is called "Ricucu" and it´s located near Montegordo city here in Algarve, Portugal. The beach is exactly located between "Praia do Cabeço" and "Ricucu" and, as you can see in the picture, is pretty calm even in Summer days when the surrounding beaches are crowded.
There is no public transportation to this beach, you can only access it by car or a private boat. And that´s what makes it so amazing and one of my all time favorite beaches in´s not crowded like the other ones in the same zone and the water is so calm and warm. When the tide is low, you have to walk many meters until you can swim or dive and that´s why it´s so great and safe for kids.
If you ever come to Algarve, I strongly recommend you this beach. I call it "A Lost Paradise" :)
See you xx


Tavira Seaside - "Cabanas"

Last winter, I went to "Cabanas de Tavira" - a village right next to Tavira city - and took a few pictures of it´s beautiful seaside views to share here in My Countryhome blog.
Today I´m posting some of those pictures and I´ll publish the rest in a next post.
See you


Last Minute Travel

With the recent year´s economic downturn, more and more people want to save money and holidays abroad is a luxury not everyone can afford.
With more and more people wanting to travel cheap, a new market niche emerged: The Low Cost and Last Minute Travel Brand.
Personally, I prefer the "all included" package type holidays but traditionally they are more expensive. The biggest advantage I found with this type of packages is not having to worry much about flights, transportation, accommodation, meals and drinks. It´s all included in the package price and you know what to count on.
With such a wide offer of last minute travel packages available in my country, for my next travel abroad I will certainly look for cheaper options and will try to program the holidays myself. Another option I can try is looking for a last minute holidays package which can be found for certain destinations.
For cheap flights, there are companies such as jetstar or last minute flights and for accommodation there are plenty hotels offering last minute deals.
The Last Minute brand offers worldwide travel services. If you´re thinking about traveling to Australia, you should check the recently relaunched Last Minute website in which you can find all the bargains and useful information for holidays in Australia using this money saving system.
