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.

Paradise in the Algarve!!

5 of 5
A great house in a beautiful setting in a wonderful region. I cannot recommend this property more highly. The house is very well designed and attention to detail has been given to make one's stay very comfortable. My wife and I and our two grown up sons spent 10 great days over Christmas enjoying the winter sun, beautiful scenery and very reasonably priced local restaurants. The house has everything that you need for a self catering holiday. It is set on a hill overlooking Faro on a landscaped farm with a number of resident animals and beautiful views to the ocean. Very accessible to the airport, main towns, beaches and attractions but secluded enough to enjoy what really was a peaceful and tranquil holiday. A big thank you to Eduardo, Clara and family for their warm hospitality, recommendations for sight seeing and restaurants and opening their wonderful estate and holiday home to visitors. We are looking forward to visiting you again and have recommended the property to friends, family and colleagues. Great memories and we were sorry to leave.

Perfect, great location and we could not have asked for more from a villa.

From the moment we met Joao and looked at the villa we knew we had chosen the right one, we have been renting villas on the Algarve for over 20 years and although everyone we have stayed in has it’s merits for the 2 of us this one outshone the rest, ideal for small families or groups of 6 and the heated indoor swimming pool was a very big bonus. The villa itself is of a high standard and if you add the well kept gardens and outside pool plus the use of mountain bikes, a volley ball, ball games area it really is good value. If you like Albufeira probably not the villa for you but for peace and relaxation this is the one. We will be returning Thank you Joao and the team
