One of the major industries in the region is slowly getting back to normal. The Algarve is getting ready to welcome wedding guests from all over the world again soon.
The Algarve’s warm climate, with over 300 days of sunshine a year, combined with the gentle breeze blowing from the sea, makes it the perfect choice for a destination wedding. Whether you want your special day to take place on the beach or, for example, celebrate at the Algarve’s leading winery, Quinta dos Vales, run by a German father-son duo.
The winery is in the process of adding a large resort to its existing accommodation portfolio, located in the middle of the picturesque vineyards. The new resort, The Vines, consists of 16 detached houses, each with two individual villa suites, will open its doors to the public in June 2021, just in time to welcome wedding couples who want to celebrate their special day in a truly unique setting.
As far as weddings in the Algarve go, it’s difficult to overlook this peaceful corner of paradise, set amidst one of Portugal’s most beautiful regions. The long-established winery, known for its award-winning wine and unique sculptures scattered throughout the estate, has always been a place that stood out for its creative ideas and unique approaches, never compromising on quality and always striving to be better.
The ceremony is perhaps the most meaningful moment of a wedding celebration, making the choice of venue absolutely crucial. The winery has several areas for the couple to choose from, all surrounded by endless hillsides dotted with vineyards, creating the perfect backdrop for a special event of any size, be it a celebration under the stars in one of the outdoor areas or on a covered panoramic terrace overlooking the vineyards.
With plenty of experience in organising weddings, Quinta dos Vales has everything needed to make the event unforgettable. The estate has ensured that all the essentials are covered – from venue hire, food, drinks and catering services, to enough space for a band or DJ set-up so guests can dance the night away. To make the experience even more complete, such an occasion is the perfect opportunity to turn the wedding into a short get-away in the ever-sunny Algarve for guests, or simply choose to spend the wedding night in one of the properties just steps away from the party.
Between 2 and 6-bedroom villas, 2-bedroom flats and the newly constructed villa suites, the on-site accommodation can host up to 100 visitors, ideal for enjoying time with guests and taking part in the various activities offered by Quinta dos Vales, be it sports such as tennis, paddle, mini golf/putting green and other options, or simply lounging by the pool.
The property’s location is just a short drive from all the major Algarve attractions, making it convenient to get around and also works perfectly if you want to organize a stag or hen party before the wedding.
As the icing on the cake, the winery offers something truly unique – for the wedding couple, a whole barrel of their own wine, made to their preferences in a place they have so carefully chosen for their very special day!
