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.

We travelled with our 4 grown up children, plus one partner - plenty of different spaces at the villa both indoors and outside to relax. Great pool. Pool table upstairs also ideal for a competitive family!! A car is essentially. The villa is in a perfect position from which to explore the area. Dave and Susan were really helpful and easily contactable.
