Thursday 23rd – Sunday 26th June 2022

We’re heading to the stunning Algarve.

The sun will be shining, the beaches will be stunning, and we’ve already booked  a yacht.

We’ll be taking you to all of our favourite haunts – eating in the restaurants in picturesque Ferragudo, sitting around the pool in the sunshine and cracking open a couple of bottles of Sagres on the yacht.

The Auto IQ team will be out in force, so you’ll be kept well entertained.

It promises to be an enjoyable few days away, here’s everything you need to know…

About Portimao & Ferragudo

Portimao and Ferragudo are close by, but very different.

Portimao, the second largest town on the Algarve is centred on a marina, surrounded by bars, restaurants, shops and hotels. This will be the base for your stay.

Across the Arade estuary you will find Ferragudo, often described as the prettiest village in the Algarve. It is one of the Algarve’s secret gems. Once a small traditional fishing village, today Ferragudo is still a small, traditional fishing village with cobbled streets and great restaurants! 

The closest airport is Faro, which is about 50 minutes away

The Hotel

We’re recommending that you stay at the Tivoli Marina Hotel Portimao.

Overlooking the sea and Portimão marina, this hotel is a 3 minutes walk from the beach and looks out across the water to Ferragudo.

With 2 seawater pools and beach, restaurants and golf courses all close at hand you’ll be well positioned to enjoy your time in Portugal.

Faro is very easy to get to from the UK, with direct flights from Birmingham, Bristol, East Midlands, Edinburgh, Manchester and London (amongst others!).

The flight time is just under 3 hours, and the cost of a return flight ranges from £106  to £153, depending on the airport. Airport transfers are also plentiful and easily arranged from Faro to Portimao.

There is no formal itinerary for the trip, so book your flights to suit you. If you’d rather fly out and extend your break, do that.

Our Itinerary

There is no formal itinerary for the trip. No group meetings and no tours of Roman ruins. 

The Auto IQ team will be found in the hotel, running our “Poolside Mastermind” on Friday & Saturday, kicking off after breakfast each day, and continuing for as long as you want us to.

Some clients may want to take their laptops to the pool in the morning and trade them for a beer in the afternoon. Alternatively, you may want to simply enjoy the Algarve and everything it has to offer.

We’ll enjoy a few hours on a yacht one day and we have arranged go karting at Kartódromo Internacional for those of you who can’t bear to be away from engines too long!

On Thursday, Friday & Saturday nights we’ll head out to Ferragudo for dinner.

Auto IQ will pay for the yacht and go-karting (could be golf if the majority play??), and we’ll pick up the food bill for dinner each night too, but if you’re ordering cocktails at dinner and bottles of Champagne then that’s on you!

1. Confirm Your Place

Confirm your place by emailing or sending a WhatsApp message to John.

2. Book your flight and hotel

Once confirmed please book your flights and hotel. We find Skyscanner and are good places to start

We’re not booking flights or hotels for you, so you’re in control. 

Book the Tivoli Marina Portimao if you fancy it (link to hotel info), or there are plenty of other hotels and Airbnbs around the marina to choose from. Please note the hotel can be booked directly from the previous link although this LINK on may offer preferable rates.

Book to come out for 3 nights, a shorter trip, or stay for the week (we’ll be here for just over a week), whatever works for you.

If you’ve got questions about the trip, ask one of the team, we’ll be happy to answer anything and even happier to get you booked on and buy you a beer in the sun in June.
