A nice spot in our lovely town in an amazing area. Don’t plan on spending a lot of time here, but it’s good for a meditation, contemplation, or a little picnic.

Good spot for the kids

We arrived late after dinner when it was cooler and spotted large fish and a turtle. Kids loved trying to catch the fish.

Pleasant experience

Stumbled on the fonte walking around the town. On a hot day the trees gave shade and with a bar for drinks a nice and unexpected experience. People were swimming in the water or having picnics and enjoying themselves. Well worth a visit

Strange bit of canal.
Jun 2019 • Couples
I think the title says it all really. This short bit of rather dirty looking water seems to attract a fair number of tourists to this better quality looking village in the hills above the tourist resorts. Not actually much there bar a few cafes but it’s not an unpleasant walk from the car park to the canal. Not really much to look at or experience but a pleasant hours worth of wandering and a few pleasant cafes to visit. Don’t expect to be blown away with it, you won’t be.

A Pleasant Day Out
May 2019 • Friends
I drove to Alte with my wife and friend on Friday 17th May 2019. It was a pleasant change from all the tourist hustle and bustle in the Albufeira area. Alte itself is a small town up in the hills about 35 minutes away from the coast by car. It is very picturesque with two lovely old churches and is blessed with natural springs which feed the Fonte Grande and the lovely stream. Picnic tables are at hand and there are also a handful of cafes nearby. Pretty narrow streets have been made more decorative by local artists.
If you wish to while away a few pleasant and relaxing hours, then a visit to Fonte Grande is a must do on your itinery.

A pleasant enough picnic spot
Aug 2018 • Family
A very nice picnic spot with a cafe and seating area next to the canal. Some people would say it’s a long way to go for very little bit we’re glad we made the effort. It’s a very pretty spot and you can walk back into Alte in a matter of minutes to explore this quaint little town. I’ve only rated it 3 stars because for 5 stars you would expect something more grandiose, and it’s not that.

Very pretty and quaint, it was very hot on our visit I would advise anyone to take water with them on their visit especially if you have children

Nothing much to see...

Ideal when you are in the neighbourhood but wouldn't advise this place if you have to drive a while to get here.
