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.

Wonderful stay in an amazing villa

5 of 5
We were 3 couples each with one young child and we spent a superb week here. The villa is very spacious and has everything you need -with the pool and the built in outside barbeque being the stand out attractions (we pretty much grilled every night!). The owner Sergio was amazing and helped us out with a few things before our stay (including arranging high chair provision for kids) and indeed after the stay by finding a lost wedding ring in the pool filter and returning to us - thanks Sergio!! A car is definitely required as there isn't much in walking distance, but a short drive away finds many lovely towns and beeche beaches. In summary, we all had a great time and would definitely start again.

Excellent tranquil location with great views

5 of 5
Spent a great long weekend in this fantastic peaceful spot- played a couple of rounds of golf at Quinta de Lago and relaxed by the pool which was still warm enough to swim in in October. Went home really relaxed. Would definitely go back again
