March in the Algarve

Although the weather is stormy and rainy, spring is in the air! I have seen the first poppy’s and some other flowers start to bloom, next to the birds giving big live concerts! Lovely! This time of the year is so nice, as temperatures are mild, ideal to explore the Algarve by foot, or bicycle. March is also still low season for the rental market, so take you chance, and rent a nice villa in the Algarve in March! Algarve Housing like to share with you a few things to do in March in the Algarve:
