Make a holiday villa in Bordeira your home away from home

Bordeira is one of the neighbourhoods that make up the parish of Santa Barbara de Nexe which is itself part of the larger city of Faro. Faro is a name well recognised in tourist circles; every year thousands of visitors head to the capital of the southern Portuguese region of Algarve to sunbathe on its picturesque beaches, ogle its marina and partake of its rich history. Nature lovers will have the famous Ria Formosa to explore. After revelling in Faro’s plenteous delights, holidaymakers can retreat to the cosy holiday homes in Bordeira offered by HomeAway. These homes include expansive villas commanding spellbinding views over the sea as well as the verdant countryside. They also include lovely renovated farmhouses complete with swimming pools for those scorching summer afternoons. Other facilities those booking Bordeira holiday rentals can expect to find include satellite/cable TV and barbecue facilities.

Things to do

-Historic attractions: Faro is choke-full of relics from the past, why even many of the cars that prowl the streets of this city are models whose production ceased decades ago. A trip to Faro’s Old Town is like stepping into a time machine and zipping back centuries. This section is situated close to the harbour and as one meanders through the narrow, cobbled streets, they’ll come across ancient cathedrals and other antique buildings. There are great restaurants and cafes to snack in as well.

-Museums: While still in that mood of marvelling at past wonders, Bordeira holiday home occupants may want to take a detour into the Faro Archaeological Museum. The captivating Roman mosaics that line the interior and the amazing collection of relics make this place worth a visit. Rivalling them for one’s attention are the charcoal drawings of Carlos Augusto and a series of paintings that depict a fascinating anecdote.

-Boat trips: Visitors can hire a boat from the marina and set out to explore the surrounding islands and the Ria Formosa channels. The Desert Island is one of these islands and this pretty locale is simply heaven on earth. This place is rarely ever crowded and those wishing to enjoy the beauty of the beach and the warmth of the sun in tranquillity will be at home here. Nature lovers will be smitten by the sight of rare birds.

-Water sports: Another way tourists in Bordeira holiday villas and farmhouses can liven up their stay is by hiring diving gear and going for underwater expeditions. There are a number of diving centres that will provide them with all the equipment they need as well as lessons if they’re strangers to scuba diving.

-Food and drink: Faro is home to a string of eateries serving an array of sumptuous Algarvian specialities. A Tasca is recommended for those keen on trying out regional delicacies at prices don’t leave the wallet in shreds. For a more diverse menu, holidaymakers can check out Le Marquis at Monte da Palhagueira which boasts a superb location and intimate ambiance. To dine beachside, visitors should consider the upmarket Camané.

Weather in Bordeira

Bordeira like the rest of Faro enjoys a prolonged sunny season and mild winters. Those wishing to avoid summer crowds can make their reservations for Bordeira holiday homes earlier, in April or May as the warm season will have already began there. They’ll find temperatures in the twenties and no rainfall. But if they cannot help but make their bookings in the traditional holiday months between June and August, they should be careful to stash that bottle of sunscreen among their holiday luggage as temperatures habitually ascend beyond 30°C then. Those into surfing can choose to visit during winter as it is never too cold (temperatures average between 16 and 20°C).

Travel to Bordeira

The Faro Airport is less than 10 miles from Bordeira so visitors coming from outside Portugal will want to book one of the seasonal flights destined for Faro. They could alternatively fly in through the Lisbon Portela Airport and connect to Faro via train. This trip will take about two and a half hours and set them back 20 Euros.

                      Beautiful place in a very quiet location.

                      5 of 5
                      We loved our week in Casinha Lecoteco. We wanted somewhere that would be quiet and this certainly met our requirements. We also wanted to have good restaurants within walking distance and even the the accommodation is isolated, within 400m from the house there are three restaurants (albeit we only tried 2 of them and can recommend both but preferred Chez Malice). The use of the pool is a real bonus. The only down side was that the bed was a little firm for our liking - but this is very much personal preference.

                      4 of 5
                      The villa is spacious and well equipped, the pool was great. We did not hire a car but found a local taxi driver who took us shopping, it was relaxing and nuno was only a e mail away if we needed him. We had a lovely holiday. Lovely resturants close by however it is quite steep up hill on the way back to the villa however the food and service is well worth it.
