Brittany Ferries has  added the Algarve as well as more of the Costas to its ferry-inclusive apartment rentals.

A cruise and a four week stay this autumn, winter or spring costs from £559 per person with your car.

The company has selected high quality apartments in eight different resorts in southern Spain and two in Portugal, each with its own character and range of activities. For golfers, there's La Manga on the Costa Blanca or Vilamoura on the Algarve  and the former includes up to 16 vouchers which can be exchanged for either rounds of golf, tennis, three-course dinners or spa treatments.

Others, such as the Crown Resort in Marbella, are ideally located for a more cosmopolitan stay, with Puerto Banus, Fuengirola and Marbella within easy reach.

Your holiday begins and ends with a cruise in a 4-berth cabin between either Portsmouth or Plymouth and Santander or Bilbao in Northern Spain. Clients can take their own car and pack everything that's needed. All utilities plus a weekly cleaning service and linen change are included in the rental.

Christiane Barker, general manager holidays, said: “Many people yearn for the chance to get away during the dull winter months to sunnier climes but don’t have the resources or inclination to buy a property. Also, if you are staying for a long time, you want to be really sure that you have chosen wisely and booking through us removes any risk. We have all heard stories of disappointed holidaymakers who have been caught out by booking an unsuitable property on the internet.”

Clients can stay longer or less than a month - call 0871 244 0633 for a quote and, stay in a hotel or Parador en route if required.
