Centre Algarve

Holiday Centre for people with special needs


Set in the beautiful Ria Formosa Nature Reserve and just 2 minutes from the pretty local village of Moncarapacho, The Centre Algarve is mainland Europe’s only specialist holiday Centre which is fully equipped to allow people with special needs, young and old, to experience a wonderful holiday with their family or carers.

We have created an environment where everybody feels comfortable, safe and secure within our wonderful grounds that are fully enclosed and gated. A magical and unique holiday centre where fun and memories are created. The Centre has 14 bedrooms keeping the experience intimate and not too overwhelming as with most large complexes. Whether you are relaxing by the pool or enjoying yourself within our private secure facilities, you will always be able to keep a watchful eye even whilst you relax and unwind in the evening with a glass of wine.

ImageCareful thought and design was given to providing a holiday centre that is fun and provides full and easy access to every part of the facility for wheel chairs and special equipment. All doorways are a minimum of 90cm wide and have no steps or thresholds that need to be negotiated. The swimming pool has an immersible hoist with flat tabled bed, enabling access to the water by fully controllable means. We offer fully electric hoist covered hygiene rooms with wet room and sit-down showers with grab handles.

We have raised flower and vegetable beds in order that people in wheelchairs have the access needed to enjoy the touch, feel and smell of the plants.
