Algarve weather. High and low temperatures, sunshine and rain charts.


Now that you have found the most friendly climate in Europe how about spending some time

If charts and Stats are not your thing then here's a heads up on what to expect!

  • July and August can be very hot with Zero rain. Shorts by day and shorts by night.
  • June and September will be slightly cooler with maybe a half day of rain once or twice a month, shorts day and night but with the odd evening when a light cardigan might come in handy.
  • May and October, some days of showers, shorts on most days but longs and a cardigan or light fleece on the odd occasion.
  • April and November may see several days with short showers, but most days will be sunny and warm. Shorts most days, longs in the evening but only a fleece required in the evenings.
  • December and March, Autumn and Spring, Longs most days and a fleece in the late afternoon and evenings. Plenty of days where a walk on the beach around midday in shorts is still possible. 
  • January and February, winter, brrrrrr, not much different to autumn and winter, though more rain but plenty of sunshine in between. Cold during the night and early morning, with the occasional frost at night on the coast but never at the villa,  sunny temperatures can can reach the late teens during mid afternoon.
