Located in Porches, a small village in the parish of Lagoa in Portugal’s southernmost region, the Algarve, is the four-star Pestana Viking Beach & Spa Resort.

This luxurious resort offers ideal scenery for you to relax during your holiday. Numerous pine and palm trees are planted around the hotel. Their bronze shadow is reflected on the extensive grass plains on top of one of the Algarve’s characteristic high cliffs. The Senhora da Rocha Beach awaits you below to dig your feet in before your first dive in the calm ocean.

Porches is found 17 kilometres away from Portimão, and about 45 minutes drive from Faro international airport. Away from the tireless stress of big cities, this small, pretty village is famous for its handicrafts and local wine production. The typical architecture of this region is carefully preserved here, with low-rise white houses with blue paint around the windows and doors.

Around this hotel you’ll find a number of potteries and crafts shops where you can purchase many of the local goods. Just about 1km away is the city of Armação de Pêra, known for its extensive offer of bars, restaurants, coffee shops, esplanades and shops along the coast.

Relax in the tranquil environment provided by the natural surroundings at the Pestana Viking.
