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.

Weather

Portugal enjoys a Mediterranean climate. Sun is prevalent all year long and the summer months are characterised by temperatures averaging 28ºC, perhaps a bit higher in late July or early August. Winters are mild with temperatures rarely dropping below 10ºC, with most rain falling in March. Spring and fall are warm and mild, making it a nice time for sightseeing.

                                                                                                      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!

Easy check-in with dedicated property managers. Home was spacious and private with cooling winds during the afternoon around the pool. Very good location to do day trips out of. First trip to the Algarve. Would definitely return to this location in the future! Many thanks to all, Claire, David, Susan. Kathy and Heinz Reese/Canada, June 3-10
