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.

Nice time away

5 of 5
We stayed in this beautiful villa for a week and really enjoyed the stay and nearby locations. The property is 15-20 mins. away from most beaches. The villa was comfortable with a nice private pool. Only complain we had was there were no essential supplies like toilet paper, tissue rolls, detergents etc and we had to buy everything. It is difficult to buy these items just for a week's stay. Luckily, we had a car and there are few stores 10 minutes away. Mike was very helpful and easy to reach. He personally came by to introduce himself and give us some local tips. We look forward to renting a villa again in the future!

Review of Quintinha

5 of 5
We stayed here in late June and early July 2017. We absolutely loved the place and had a very relaxing holiday. We made great use of the outdoor barbecue and seating area. Stephen and Tetyana were very helpful and on their advice we went to the market in Olaho and sourced fresh fish and stocked up at a lovely butchers in the market. The private pool is a fantastic facility and the quietness made the holiday enjoyable. We were a party of 5 and had plenty of room in the property. Estoi is walking distance only if you are keen walkers but we had a hired jeep and went into Estoi for food a good number of evenings, there are 4 or 5 resturants and we were particularly impressed by Galleria dos Sentidos which was really lovely. Faro beach is only 15-20 minute drive and we went there a lot. Also we would recommend a boat trip from Olaho it's a lovely day visiting the islands and having lunch and swimming at numerous different beaches. We found driving in the area very easy and encountered no aggressive motorists. In summary we would highly recommend this holiday let, it is spotlessly clean, is spacious and has excellent facilities. To conclude we found Stephen and Tetyana very helpful yet respectful of our privacy and we wouldn't hesitate to return to Quintana again in the future.
