    Extended family holiday portugal - where?

    we are going to try do a big family holiday this year, my wifes parents, brother and sister and both of us and our 3 year old.

    ideally take a villa that would house us all (so 5 bedrooms) and within some sort of complex that will have fun things for my daughter.

    September time i think

    any suggestions?

    +1 for Martinhal.
    Service is always good, and a lovely setting. Great if you want to chill. Great food on site.
    I have lost count. We have been back there 4-5 times.

    Albufeira - but get one of the villas/hotels near the long beaches away from the tacky part

    like falesia, santa eulalia etc...

    pretty much an area with something for everyone and if not withing short drive/taxi

    This. My wife's uncle has a villa north of Tavira, we usually go once a year. Very peaceful but not far from attractions.

    When we went many years ago I booked a villa in Gale, a few miles away from Albufeira and just a short drive from the Gale beaches which are used by locals and pretty much empty.
