Faro District's famous delights

You'll probably know the Faro District by its other, more popular, name – the Algarve. Crowning the whole length of southern Portugal, it's a patchwork of green hills and gorgeous beaches, whitewashed fishing towns and sun-splashed resorts. In the summer, people flock from all over to laze on its honey-hued sands, surf its rolling waves and kick-back by the pool's edge in Faro District holiday rentals. Stacks of sizzling seafood and a fascinating fusion of Moorish and Iberian culture only add to the draws, while towns like buzzing Albufeira and age-old Lagos promise to enthrall with their castles, coastlines and charming people.

Fun and adventure in Faro District

When you're not soaking up the rays on one of the Algarve's countless yellow-sand beaches or lounging under a palm in the garden of your Faro District holiday rental, you can head out to discover a plethora of things to do in this region. Boats whiz out from the ports promising glimpses of dolphins and other rare sea life. Horse-riding tours delve into wild ranges of hills that rise above the Atlantic Ocean. And there are caves beckoning the underground adventurer and surfing spots for those who like to carve over sculpted waves.

Fortresses galore in Faro District

Faro District's rich and intriguing past of Moorish invaders and Reconquista knights has left it littered with eye-catching historical buildings. If you're looking for Faro District holiday rentals in Lagos, you could even find yourself sleeping between the walls of a centuries-old medieval castle – the Regional Museum of Lagos can help you make sense of it with its mosaics and arabesque oil lamps and more. The enchanting town of Silves is another fortress-topped must. Its red-hued citadel is backed up by an excellent archaeology museum.

Fun in the sun in Faro District

Faro District's scorching summers are what bring so many people from around Europe to its shores. They start in June and last until early September, bringing regular daily readings in the high 20s and hardly any rainfall at all. That's the perfect time to seek out Faro District holiday rentals with a pool or proximity to the beach. For the history and culture, you can come any time of the year. In fact, jaunts to towns like Lagos and Albufeira will be a whole load more affordable in seasons like autumn and winter.

Countless coastal treats in Faro District

A strip of verdant volcanic mountains shelters the Algarve on one side. They represent a rustic and less-visited enclave of the region, replete with chestnut forests, pine woods and terraced vineyards. It's never far from there back to the coast, which runs for 100s of miles from the Spanish border and up around the Atlantic. Get ready for some awesome sands, including the likes of rock-topped Praia da Marinha in Lagos and shimmering Praia de Odeceixe that meets the swells of the ocean. Out at sea is where you'll find the amazing marine life – keep watch for dolphin pods gliding through the water.
