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.

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.

Excellent

Really enjoyed our 4 night stay here. Great communication in the booking stages, and although we got to the apartment at around midnight Sergio was happy to meet us there at that late hour. A bottle of wine, fruit and water waiting for us was a nice touch as well. The apartment is larger than it appears in the photos and was probably the best equipped we've ever stayed in. Absolutely clean, and with great wifi which is always a bonus. The apartment is on the ground floor of a residential block, as you turn right coming out of the main door of the building there's a bar about 15 metres away, turn left and there's a bar 5 metres away! This bar seems to be the Gin centre of Faro with a massive range of gins, all lovingly prepared by the owner. A bottle of beer at either bar is one euro for 33cl, and throughout Faro eating and drinking out is a bargain. Both bars are on the opposite side of the building from the apartment so no noise issues. It's about 20 minutes walk from the apartment into the town/marina, probably a bit less but we always seemed to get a bit lost! Faro is a lovely place for a short break, forget the bits of the Algarve that you're familiar with and spend a few days amongst real Portuguese. Our flight home was at 17.00, not a problem to keep the apartment for the day as there was no-one booked in after us. Totally recommend this place for a chilling break, Sergio is a great host and we will be back! Many thanks, Paul and Sandra.

Excellent!!!

The area is very quiet with a few bars and bistros within walking distance along with a small supermarket. There are a lot of dogs on the estate however this isn't a problem other than the occasional barking. The house itself is excellent, clean and definitely value for money especially since it has a good size pool and safe and clean pool area. The owner was extremely helpful answering any queries if and when we had them. Aldi supermarket is literally a 5 minute drive and clean Diderot the property is only 20 minutes from the airport we didn't hear a plane once. A lovely relaxing break at this property will definitely return.
