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!

The Algarve is known for its sunshine and from March to October it has on average 8-12 hours of sunshine daily. Winter temperatures average at least 16C (61F) and summer temperatures soar to 29C (84F) on average.

Lovely area, fantastic, clean apartment with everything a young family needed

4 of 5
Thank you for a lovely stay. Everything was as described and it was great to have things like a travel cot included, maid service once a week and that lovely sunny garden. We would only suggest for future that the welcome folder should be left on a table for arrival with the pool entry key in as we didn't know about this so had to go to the management place. Also info on the restaurants and local area would be good. Minor thing as everything else was wonderful

Central, convenient. Live as a local.

4 of 5
We stayed for 10 days in Tavira. Ann organised a driver, Vasvi to collect us from Faro which was very convenient. The house is small despite being 3 bedrooms. My husband and son are 6ft 2, so what I would say is that the staircase and bathroom are not made for larger people. Having said that, we did get used to it over the time. The kitchen had everything and with supermarkets all around making meals was easy. We arrived on a Friday and discovered that in the height of summer you must book a table at least two day's ahead! It is very busy. The ferry to the beach is regular and efficient and the beaches are all blue flag ie very clean. Tavira is a very pretty town but I would suggest a car if you want to go further afield.
