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.

The villa is in a rural location which is exactly what we look for in a destination but it is only a short drive down to the coast. The villa is stunning. Very spacious and airy inside with air conditioning in every room. The kitchen has everything you need but we used the gas bbq everyday. The gas did run out whilst we were using it and we phoned Sylvia the agent and it was dealt with within the hour - amazing. We used all the various eating locations. It was lovely to use the garden at breakfast and the bbq area in the evening. The swimming pool is amazing. We were very happy to spend whole days at the villa swimming and sun bathing. There is plenty of shade as well which we needed as the weather was fantastic every day There are good restaurants in the area. We can recommend Le Marquis, 6 minutes drive from villa. Not cheap but fantastic food and well worth a visit. John and Jan's info on the villa prior to our visit was perfect and we had no problem at all finding the villa. If you want a 'get away from it all' holiday then this is the perfect location. A car is essential. We would definitely stay here again.

                                                                                                      We had a fantastic stay and would highly recommend this accommodation and the area. It's even better than in the photographs. We were a group of 5 with 3 grown up children and found there was ample room for all of us. The pool was a really good size. We particularly liked the outside eating area and made a lot of use of this and the barbeque. It was good to have the tv with extensive dvd collection so we could take a break inside during the hottest part of the day. If the sky is clear, patio and roof top terrace are good for star gazing as there is very little artificial light so you can see loads of stars. The house feels quite remote due to it being in the middle of the countryside and at the end of country road it is in fact less than 30 mins drive to the airport and to several beautiful beaches, there were also shops and supermarkets close by. We were really surprised how close everything was. On recommendation from Tetyana we visited Fuseta beach and took the ferry out to the island beach. Fuesta beach was beautiful and less busy than I expected during peak holiday season. We also visited Tavira town and the island beach there. Tavira Island beach is much bigger and has a choice of several restaurants, small shops and cafes. Much busier than Fuseta but still nice. We also visited the nearby roman ruins of Milreu near Estoi and a bit further away at Amancil the blue and white tiled Church of Sao Lourenco de Almancil. At Casa Quintinha you're ideally placed to visit further afield as it's close to the motorway but we didn't venture far. We only stayed a week, were very sad to leave and would definitely return if we decide to come back to this area of Portugal. It was really helpful having Tetyana so close incase we had any problems and Stephen was really helpful and responded quickly to questions before the holiday.
