Things to do

Cidade Velha of Faro:

The Cidade Velha, or Old Town, is a picturesque spot: its medieval walls surround winding cobblestone streets that are dotted with traditional cafés, shops, and restaurants. Architecturally the area is a bit of a melange. Examples of medieval, baroque, gothic, and Moorish styles can be seen, showcasing the city's interesting past.

The Sé:

The Sé was completed in 1251 and is one of the main sights within the Cidade Velha. A devastating earthquake struck in 1755 and destroyed all but the tower gate and a few chapels. Over the years, it has been reconstructed in various styles. The rooftop offers beautiful views of the city and sea.

Rio Formosa:

The nature reserve of Rio Formosa is located in both Portugal and Spain. It is comprised of a beautiful lagoon and several small islands that are used by birds during their migration south. Small towns located on the islands have taverns and cafés. The beaches are excellent.

Estoi:

The municipality of Estoi is located seven miles from Faro city centre. There is an extensive collection of Roman ruins, including Roman baths, the remains of a temple, and a preserved Roman villa. The Estoi Palace is another sight to see. It one of the few buildings that survived the earthquake of 1755.

Museu Municipal de Faro:

The Faro Municipal Museum is found within the 16th-century Our Lady of the Assumption Convent in Vila Adentro. The structure was partially destroyed by invading forces in 1536, but what remains is considered one of best examples of early architecture in the region. The museum is home to Roman and Medieval artefacts and art collections.

Praia de Faro

This famous beach located not far from Faro Airport expands over several miles, making it a great destination even during the high season. Golden sand and clean water await visitors. The area has plenty of shops and restaurants, and there are loads of opportunities for watersports such as snorkelling and wind surfing.

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

The property is 15-20 mins. away from most beaches. The villa was comfortable with a nice private pool. Only complain we had was there were no essential supplies like toilet paper, tissue rolls, detergents etc and we had to buy everything. It is difficult to buy these items just for a week's stay. Luckily, we had a car and there are few stores 10 minutes away. Mike was very helpful and easy to reach. He personally came by to introduce himself and give us some local tips. We look forward to renting a villa again in the future!
