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.

Relaxing rural retreat but within easy distance of airport, beaches and facilities

5 of 5
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.

Relaxing comfortable and clean

We had a lovely stay at the villa; very comfortable and spacious. Pool right outside. Would advise a car for easy access to supermarket and villamoura. Thanks
