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.

Unique and charming house!

5 of 5
It was such a wonderful stay at your property, Philippe! We loved the "laid-back" charme of Sao Brás and the surrounding, the olive-trees and lavender in your garden and the so so beautiful style of the house. Philippe was also very nice and helpful with information on the area, places to eat and swim etc. Overall a perfect stay - we´d love to come back one day. Hopefully soon!! :-) Chris & Sarah

Fantastisch!!!

5 of 5
Wir haben im Juni 2017 knapp zwei Wochen in dem Haus verbraucht. Und ich muss sagen dass das Haus noch schöner ist als auf den Bildern. Die Pflanzen auf dem Grundstück sind mittlerweile hoch gewachsen, so dass das ganze Areal einen Park-ähnlichen Charakter hat. Ergänzend zu den anderen Bewertungen möchte ich noch folgendes hinzufügen: - Die Gastgeber Eduardo und Clara sind extrem nett und sehr gastfreundlich. Sie haben uns z.B. von sich aus noch weiteres Spielzeug für unsere Tochter aus dem Fundus Ihres Enkelkindes vorbei gebracht. An einem anderen Tag stand Abends plötzlich ein Korb selbst gepflügter Orangen aus dem eigenen Garten und eine elektrische Saftpresse auf der Terrasse. - Das gesamte Grundstück ist 35000 qm groß. Zu dem Ferienhaus und dem Haus der Eigentümer befindet sich dort noch eine Garten mit Obstbäumen (Orangen, Feigen, Pflaumen uvm.) aus dem man sich nach Lust und Laune bedienen kann. Zudem gibt es noch ein Gehege mit Hühnern und Schafen, was für unsere Tochter ein absolutes Highlight war. - Für alles was man sonst noch braucht gibt es einen kleinen Supermarkt im Ort Estoi. Bis zum nächsten Lidl (mit sehr gutem frischem Brot und Brötchen!) oder Intermache fährt man ca. 10 min nach Sao Bras. - Das Haus ist wirklich über-komplett ausgestattet. Aller Schlafräume und das Wohnzimmer verfügen über eine Klimaanlage. Die Küche verfügt über alle Küchengeräte. Es gibt auch zwei! Satellitenanlagen. Eine für lokales und eine für deutsches Fernsehen. - Wenn einmal etwas fehlen oder defekt sein sollte wird es nach Möglichkeit noch am gleichen Tag geregelt. Während unseres Aufenthaltes ging eines der Klimageräte kaputt. Der Techniker war bereits zwei Stunden später vor Ort und hat es repariert. - Während unseres knapp zwei-wöchigen Urlaubs wurden auch einmal alle Handtücher getauscht, die Bett frisch bezogen und der Pool gereinigt. Wir haben das Haus noch während unseres Urlaubs schon wieder für das nächste Jahr gebucht!
