Quarteira which was once just a tiny fishing village like so many others along the coast, dates back to Roman times.

The weather here is no different from what you’ll observe in other parts of the Algarve region; bright and sunny for most of the year with the interruption of a relatively mild winter.

This warmth continues to increase as the year progresses, culminating in August when days with temperatures over 30°C are not uncommon. Little to no rainfall is experienced during this season. Only as winter takes over from autumn does some rain begin to fall and by December averages of over 100mm are recorded.
