The apartments of Turcongel are located on the leeward side of the Algarve coast (the eastern part of the Algarve, which is sheltered from the wind), in Praia de Alagoa-Altura, county of Castro-Martim, close to the border with Spain (10 km).
With three tourist apartment complexes to choose from — “Turcongel”, “Altura Park” and “Avenida Park” — there is no doubt that you will find the ideal lodging for your vacation with family or friends.
The beach at Alagoa-Altura has excellent conditions for swimming, with a calm sea (not too deep) and a wide expanse of white sand, perfect for walking along the shoreline. (To the east: Praia Verde, Monto Gordo, Villa Real de Santo António; to the west: Manta Rota, Cacela Velha, Rio Formosa).
In the friendly village of Altura you will find a wide choice of good restaurants featuring the gastronomy of the Algarve (Mediterranean cooking), as well as other appetizing choices.
This zone is fantastic for great walks and cycling in the nature reserve of Sapal de Castro-Marim, Ria Formosa, or along the Rio Guadiana toward Vila de Alcoutim.
There are also several golf courses that are easily accessible — Quinta da Ria, Castro Marim Golf, Monte Rei in Cacela, and Quinta do Vale.
At the Guadiana Marina in Villa Real de Santo António you can rent a boat for sport fishing or to take a ride up the Rio Guadiana, or even to go to Spain.
