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.

Travel to Faro

Flights to Faro Airport (FAO) are available from most major cities in Europe. To reach any of the municipalities of Faro, hiring a car is a popular option. There are several agencies located at the airport, though pre-arranging can save time and money. Buses and trains run from Faro Airport or Lisbon to most towns in the region.

The pictures don't do it justice

Stayed for three nights (in July) with family incl. 2 teens. Apartment is in a great location just a brief walk from the harbour and main shopping/eating areas. A really lovely apartment with two large balconies that give some interesting views over the town. Owner was very helpful on our arrival and recommended a few places to eat. The apartment was very well decorated and had everything you could possibly need for a few days or a week. Would highly recommend.

Wonderful villa for our family holiday of 3 generations

5 of 5
We've just returned from a fabulous week's stay at Lucy and Julia's gorgeous villa - clean, spacious, comfortable and with every amenity supplied. We especially enjoyed the wonderful seating area outside, with comfy seats and couches in the shade, and study wooden sunbeds for those who love to brave the heat! The rooftop area was beautiful for evening drinks watching the sun go down, and the large pool was a hit with us all. Inside the villa, the sitting room and its 3 very comfy sofas were perfect for relaxing, and the TV and games system looked great, although we never really got around to using them much. Ceiling fans and air conditioning kept us cool. The kitchen was well equipped, and the second fridge freezer in the laundry room was perfect for storing drinks. Gina, our contact in Portugal, was very helpful, meeting us at the villa and showing us everything the villa had to offer, but also later in the week when we had some questions. We also had a worry about the pool around 9pm one night, and she organised the pool maintenance man to come round within about 10 minutes, despite the lateness of the hour. All in all a fabulous holiday; we were very sad to leave...
