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.

Another fantastic visit.....

5 of 5
This was our second stay at this beautiful villa and we enjoyed it as much as the first. So well equipped, plenty of space and a gorgeous pool and gardens. Louise as helpful as ever with our booking etc. Loved the daily walk into Estoi for coffee and custards in the square at Ana's cafe It's away from the tourist areas but everywhere really accessible with a car Thank you for another great holiday in your lovely home

Review of Quintinha

5 of 5
We stayed here in late June and early July 2017. We absolutely loved the place and had a very relaxing holiday. We made great use of the outdoor barbecue and seating area. Stephen and Tetyana were very helpful and on their advice we went to the market in Olaho and sourced fresh fish and stocked up at a lovely butchers in the market. The private pool is a fantastic facility and the quietness made the holiday enjoyable. We were a party of 5 and had plenty of room in the property. Estoi is walking distance only if you are keen walkers but we had a hired jeep and went into Estoi for food a good number of evenings, there are 4 or 5 resturants and we were particularly impressed by Galleria dos Sentidos which was really lovely. Faro beach is only 15-20 minute drive and we went there a lot. Also we would recommend a boat trip from Olaho it's a lovely day visiting the islands and having lunch and swimming at numerous different beaches. We found driving in the area very easy and encountered no aggressive motorists. In summary we would highly recommend this holiday let, it is spotlessly clean, is spacious and has excellent facilities. To conclude we found Stephen and Tetyana very helpful yet respectful of our privacy and we wouldn't hesitate to return to Quintana again in the future.
