Make a holiday rental home, apartment or villa in Faro, Portugal your home away from home

The ever popular city of Faro, in Portugal’s Algarve region, is one of the country’s top holiday destinations, and this is reflected in the number and range of great Faro holiday accommodation available here. Known for its long beach, Faro also offers an attractive cityscape dominated by atypical whitewashed buildings, an interesting old city, and plenty of places to wine, dine and let ones hair down!

Things to do on holiday in Faro, Portugal

Most popular during the summer months, many families are attracted by the cheap Faro accommodation on offer, and opportunities for fun in the sun. Faro Beach is located 7 kilometres (4 miles) from the city itself and is several kilometres long, a size which means this beach will rarely get overcrowded. Holidaymakers can choose self catering Faro apartments or villas near the beach, or opt for Faro holiday accommodation in a city setting.

The Old City, known as Centro Historico or Cidade Velha, is a popular destination which has cobbled streets and interesting architecture, set just a short distance from the harbour. Faro Marina is also a pleasant spot to take a stroll by day or night, whilst watching the yachts come and go. Boat trips to Rio Formosa are available for a nice half day excursion from your Faro holiday accommodation. This is a large nature reserve right next to the city where you can see hundreds of different bird species.

Visitors looking for Faro tourist information will find this at the Posto de Turismo de Faro, located in the city centre.

The house is lovely - very well-equipped, perfectly located near the marina, the old town and shops and restaurants and only a five minute walk from the bus station. Veronica and Bruno are very welcoming and cannot do enough for you. We highly recommend this property and are hoping to return again.

Ana is a brilliant host, she was very helpful during our stay. Ana organised airport transfers for us for a very small fee. There are lots of restaurants and bars close to the apartment, there is also well stocked supermarkets within 2 minutes walk. The view of the marina from the bedroom balcony is breathtaking but we spent most of our time on the large terrace off the living room. Thank you Ana for all your help and advice, we would highly recommend your apartment to anyone who wishes to visit Faro.

Helped me out with all my needs and answered any questions I had. The villa was beautiful, Nicely secluded and well stocked with everything you would need. So heres my only tip If you are using taxis for your holiday use the villa owners taxi service for airport transfers and to get you to the villa the first time after that Uber works perfectly. There are 2 supermarkets one is a 15 min walk the second a 25 minute walk and 3 restaurants close buy. I cant recommend this villa enough was a amazing week. Cant wait to go back!!
