Hi! I'm Michael.
Do you dream of finding that authentic hidden gem, off the beaten track away from the crowds and tourist traps?
We do! Here we offer the many hidden opportunities Portugal has to offer. Portugal is an amazing country with breath taking landscapes - rugged coastlines, expansive beaches, green valleys and mountainous regions with crystal clear rivers and springs.
Dotted amongst the everchanging landscapes are small villages where locals still live close to the land - meet the local goatherder and taste the local honey. We value authentic experiences that support small local businesses, where you can relax - away from the tourist crowds.
Here at Autentical we would like to introduce you to the authentic Portugal

Too may tourists everywhere? The Algarve coastal towns can certainly feel that way. It is difficult to find a quiet spot and enjoy the beautiful coastline and sea views. We are here to guide you away from these areas of mass tourism to a more authentic experience
Autentical offers you the chance to discover accommodation opportunities in quieter more rural settings, off the beaten track so you can taste the authentic Portugal and soak up all the wonders it.

Lots of beautiful villas near the coast – but away from the touristic zones
The Algarve coast is crowded with tourists almost everywhere. And with hotels build side by side. It is not a nice sight! But in the old villages and behind the tourist town there are less tourists and there are some amazingly beautiful villas.
We have selected some super-nice and spectacular villas for you – here you may enjoy Portugal and escape mass tourism.Filter by location
