Winter in the Algarve



algarve winter

What is the winter look like in the Algarve? What temperatures has January?

Questions I receive very often, together with an enquiry for multiple months rent for a winter in the Algarve.

Unique winters

As every villa is unique so are the winters in the Algarve. Like last winter, October and November, during the day it was still 30 degrees! And it was dry for many, many more months. We all were worried, if it stays like this, we will have a huge water shortage problem!!! But it did change, I cannot remember exactly when, but late in the winter, I think it was February, maybe March, it started raining. Lots of rain, between some sunny days, don’t worry!

Be aware!

But the biggest part was sunny and warm during the day, and clear blue skies. This also involves cold at night! Nice, this sunny, clear blue sky weather, but be aware, it is cold at night! So bring some warm clothes too!


Generally houses in the Algarve do not have central heating, and are not as good insulated as houses in northern countries. Beside this, houses can be damp, and a damp house is hard to heat.  Although night temperatures vary roughly from 4 till 16 degrees, it can be cold at night and you need good heating! During the day it can go up to 30 degrees, but that is an exeption! Around 20 is more common. But I have to be honest, it can be stormy and rainy weather too!

How to heat?

A woodburner is nice, but you need to know how to work with this. Many villas have air-con units. Underfloor heating is also possible. And electricity in the Algarve is costly. So be aware of this! We do not want you to be cold!
