Make a holiday villa in Estoi Town your home away from home

There are few better ways to spend a holiday than enjoying the pristine beaches and rich cultural heritage found in Portugal’s southernmost city, Faro. The old town is a joy to stroll through sightseeing and partaking of refreshments in quaint cafes. As one ambles through the city they’ll come across some medieval landmarks that will capture their interest. Visitors will be able to enjoy cosy accommodation in Estoi Town holiday homes in the course of their Faro stay. Here they will find magnificently furnished villas with immaculate yards and some with swimming pools they can recline beside. A number of these Estoi Town holiday villas provided by HomeAway are styled in a traditional Portuguese design. They are assured of stunning scenery and quick access to such amenities as banks and shopping centres. Holidaymakers will be surrounded by many top-notch eateries as well.

Things to do

-Beaches: The Praia da Faro offers holidaymakers kilometres of soft, fine sands for memorable promenades. Crowding here is nigh impossible even in the peak season as the beach stretches for miles. And with temperatures remaining in the twenties during this period, sunbathers will get the tan they’ve been waiting all year for.

-Historical sites: An unhurried stroll through the Faro old town is recommended for guests at Estoi Town holiday rentals. They’ll feel swept back in time as they clatter through the cobbled streets lined with buildings constructed with Moorish flair. The Faro Cathedral which has its roots in the 13/14th century, is well worth a visit. Inside it visitors will find lovely gilded carvings and other brilliant works of art.

-Food and drink: There is no shortage of eateries that tenants of Estoi Town holiday homes can resort to whenever hunger strikes. For a taste of Algarvian specialities they can try A Tasca on Rua do Alportel. They’ll get excellent food and no frills at very reasonable prices here. A more diverse menu can be found at the exquisitely located Le Marquis. Not only will patrons stuff themselves on haute cuisine, they’ll receive royal treatment.

-Night out: Night owls will be equally spoilt for choice as to where to spend their time and money. A bar crawl is a great idea as visitors will be able to sample the atmosphere and drinks of various joints. If they want a place to sing out along with their favourite crooners, they can plan to attend one of Bar CheSsenta’s karaoke nights. This club attracts a generally young crowd. Those who are into the heavy metal and biking culture can check out Eddie’s Bar.

-Ria Formosa: This nature reserve is one of Algarve’s biggest attractions and tourists staying in Estoi Town holiday homes will be delighted to know that they won’t be far from this expanse of flora and fauna which stretches into Spain. The Ria Formosa is best explored by boat and during the two and a half-hour trip holidaymakers will marvel at the magnificent islands and the bird species in them.

Weather in Estoi Town

This locale enjoys a long warm season all the way from April to October. The rest of the months are reserved for a mild summer in which temperatures generally remain above the 15°C mark. Many a tan-seeking tourist will book a holiday villa in Estoi Town between July and August when temperatures average between 27 and 29°C but regularly climb into the thirties. There is no rainfall during this time of year. Most of Estoi’s rainfall is experienced in December.

Travel to Estoi Town

Travellers destined for holiday accommodation in Estoi Town are advised to book flights to Faro Airport as it lies just about 7 miles away. And finding these flights won’t be too difficult in the peak holiday months as most airliners will have seasonal flights that land there. For just €3,25 holidaymakers will be able to make the 20-minute journey to Estoi from the airport.

A real home-from-home

5 of 5
We visited Villa Violetta for a couple of weeks of sunshine at the beginning of July, and had a wonderful, relaxing time. We found it easily, even in the dark thanks to the detailed directions, and were very surprised to be warmly greeted Andy and Dawn when we arrived, even although it was nearly midnight. They embody the word ‘care-taker’ because that’s exactly what they do- they take care of you and the villa for the duration of your stay. They showed us around the villa, which is well equipped with everything you might wish for while you are there. They also left us a very generous ‘welcome pack’- not the standard bread and milk, but wine, beer, soft drinks, fruit, bread and cheese, crisps and crackers, which was really incredibly thoughtful (and generous!) of them. I cannot commend Andy and Dawn highly enough for taking such good care of us- nothing was too much trouble for them. The villa was lovely, with comfortable beds. The air con in the bedrooms was very welcome, as it was about 38 degrees when we were there! The pool was lovely and roomy for the boys to play on inflatables, and also a nice size if you actually like to swim. I especially loved the garden, which has been very carefully tended, and is a beautiful place to meditate (if that’s your thing 😊. ) There's also a lovely pergola under which you can eat outdoors, and a barbecue by the pool. (I think theses were built after the photos were taken.) There is no ‘maid service’ during your stay (although Andy and Dawn regularly replace sheets and towels), and we really liked it that way. We had stayed in villas previously where daily maid service was included, and we found it quite invasive when we were used to peace-and-quiet and our own space. The cleaner would tend to drive us out of the house, which defeated the purpose of a lovely villa! Not so here- it’s all yours for the duration of your stay. It’s the perfect location if you like peace and quiet, but want to be able to access the beautiful beaches nearby- Faro, Barril, and Tavira are all within 20-30 mins drive, and you’re only 15 minutes from Sao Bras, where there are a number of good-sized supermarkets, including a Lidl. We barbecued at night, or tended to eat-out at the beach so I can’t comment on any of the restaurants nearby. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here, and will definitely be back! Thank you Marja and Ineke!

Paradise in the Algarve!!

5 of 5
A great house in a beautiful setting in a wonderful region. I cannot recommend this property more highly. The house is very well designed and attention to detail has been given to make one's stay very comfortable. My wife and I and our two grown up sons spent 10 great days over Christmas enjoying the winter sun, beautiful scenery and very reasonably priced local restaurants. The house has everything that you need for a self catering holiday. It is set on a hill overlooking Faro on a landscaped farm with a number of resident animals and beautiful views to the ocean. Very accessible to the airport, main towns, beaches and attractions but secluded enough to enjoy what really was a peaceful and tranquil holiday. A big thank you to Eduardo, Clara and family for their warm hospitality, recommendations for sight seeing and restaurants and opening their wonderful estate and holiday home to visitors. We are looking forward to visiting you again and have recommended the property to friends, family and colleagues. Great memories and we were sorry to leave.
