Make a self catering villa in Pechao, Portugal your home away from home

Many people visit the Algarve for the beaches but there is so much more to enjoy here. Faro Island is just across the causeway at low tide, and the Islands of Olhao are just a ferry ride away. There are plenty of outdoor sports, historic attractions and charming fishing towns nearby.

The area is full of white washed houses and ancient towns, each with beautiful churches and museums. Staying in Pechao is a step back in time and the ideal way to enjoy it at your own pace is from a self catering villa.

Things to do in Pechao, Portugal

Your self catering villa is just a short drive from the beaches at Faro and Fuseta. Enjoy the perfect sands and safe bathing or take a stroll along the seashore.

Bird Watching - Drive down to the Ria Formosa lagoon, a 17,000 hectare national park which is home to hundreds of different species of birds especially during the spring and autumn as they migrate.

There are several top class golf courses within half an hour’s drive of your villa in Pechao. Look for Quinta do Lago and Vale de Lobo luxury developments. With a perfect climate and beautiful scenery it is a great way to enjoy the very best of the Algarve.

Places to visit near Pechao, Portugal

Olhao is still the local fishing village that it always was and you can still see the fisherman unloading their catch or mending their nets. There is also an excellent local market here every day which sells local fresh produce. In the evenings during the summer there is plenty of local entertainment along the seafront and a museum, cinema and plenty of local fish restaurants.

The ancient walled city of Faro is a delightful place to explore. Once a trading port, it has seen several invasions and has both Arab and Roman ruins. Make sure you visit the 13th century Cathedral in the square and the beautiful Episcopal Palace nearby. The golden church of Nossa Senhora do Carmo certainly lives up to its name with wonderful gold leaf woodwork.

During the summer there is entertainment near the marina, and just outside the town there is a shopping centre and multiplex cinema showing films in English.

The nearby village of Estoi has the remains of a Roman villa which enjoyed surprisingly modern home comforts for its time!

Set in a highly exclusive and very beautiful road right opposite a top class golf course. We loved the championship quality pool table. Best I have ever played on. We swam in the lovely pool every morning and evening, and found it easy to roll the cover back over the pool every evening so the heating could work to maximum effect. Comfortable swimming temperature in February. The fish and vegetable market in the old part of Quarteira was a real find for us. The owner George handled our booking of the villa perfectly. We arrived to find the villa immaculately clean with a bottle of wine left out on the table. The pool and garden maintenance people came twice in out week and kept everything up to the highest standards without ever interfering with our privacy and sense of ownership of the house and grounds. We emailed George a few days before arrival and asked if he knew of how to hire bikes. He found the right company for us. They delivered top class bike to the villa at a very good price. My son and I had brand new suspension mountain bikes and enjoyed great riding along the coast and up on to some challenging off road tracks in the hills north of the villa. We were spoilt for choice with great golf courses, from the world class ones that adjoin the villa to smaller 9 hole courses like Balaia where they welcomed our 9 year old and supplied clubs and shoes for us all. By turning right out of out front drive we were able to walk to the local bakery in 5 minutes and also reach Brown's Sports Club in the same time to play tennis or squash or enjoy good coffee in the morning or drinks and home made hamburgers in the evening. If you can't find the bakery,,,,ask for directions in Browns. Its tucked just down the lane by the orange groves and does great morning pastries. The marina is surrounded by great bars and restaurants. The cinema surround sound in the villa is great so take some DVDs. Thank you for an exceptional holiday!

                                                                                                      4 of 5
                                                                                                      We have travelled to Portugal every year for the last 30 years; we visited Fuseta for the first time in February. Accommodation excellent. Beautifully appointed and in an ideal position for eating out locally on the front. Location: Unusual for us as the views were across the creek and then the lagoon as opposed to directly on the seafront. This afforded some lovely walks, especially if you are interested in wild life. Ideally situated for access to local restaurants and shops. A mere 5 minute walk will take you to lovely beach bar with magnificent views. Equally, a 5 minute walk away you can pick up the local train to nearby towns. Tavira is well worth visiting. Eating out was a revelation! It has been many years since we have been away on holiday where the food in restaurants is very inexpensive and invariably local produce (charcoal grilled in front of you) with the obvious choice local fish. Wines and beers are also excellent value for money. There are no "posh" restaurants to tempt you so your euros will go a long way! Fuseta is a charming and very traditional fishing village well worth visiting. The apartment was extremely comfortable and beautifully furnished. Only negative for us as a couple was the view from the lounge terrace was a little restricted so there was only one spot where we could sit to overlook the creek/lagoon etc. There is a beautifully laid out roof terrace with excellent views but it is accessed by leaving the apartment and going up two flights of stairs. We are in our 60s and didn't trust ourselves to come back down after one too many glasses of wine up there! One small recommendation to the owner: the train timetable was very out of date which we discovered on arrival at the station and had an hour to kill. It didn't faze us because we enjoyed coffees in the "square" at ludicrously low prices in this day and age. We would like to thank the owners for their excellent support throughout the booking including Alvaro to welcome us and arrange transport back to the airport.
