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!

Beautiful villa and a great stay!

4 of 5
The villa is brilliant and has an amazing pool. We loved staying here. For feedback, it would be great for the owners to leave a visitors guide of how to use certain things in the villa, light positions and areas that are out of bounds etc. We found that the villa does not have a very recognisable address, so details of taxi companies who know the area really well would have saved us lots of time giving directions to uber drivers until we did! The main downside that we all felt was the beds, really uncomfortable and all of them had a squeak, so if the owners could look at doing something about that, I think the stay would have been perfect! To end on a good point, the owners and housekeepers were really responsive and very friendly, so any issues we had were solved quickly. Really recommend this villa for a chilled and enjoyable holiday!

Beautiful, tastefully furnished traditional cottage. Immaculately maintained garden and pool.

5 of 5
Lovely little cottage set in beautiful garden with hammocks slung from a walnut tree. A lemon tree and passion fruit tree by the pool set the scene for lounging or having breakfast by the immaculate pool before a refreshing dip. The hosts are incredibly friendly and hospitable and nothing is too much trouble. The owners two lovely dogs, Megan and Charlie will melt your heart The location of the cottage is ideal for exploring the Algarve and is a short drive to the coast whilst far enough away to avoid the crowds when a little peace is required. Thoroughly recommended.
