Make a holiday villa in Santa Bárbara de Nexe your home away from home

Faro is one of Portugal’s many hidden gems. It is found in the southernmost reaches of the country where the waters of the Atlantic meet the shore. There are many things to see and do in this picturesque locale apart from revelling in the rays of the sun and the soft sand of its beaches. Traipsing through the streets of this city one will feel swept back by the winds of time as they view the whitewashed buildings constructed in typical Moorish style. One of the suburbs that make up Faro is Santa Bárbara de Nexe and here travellers will find holiday accommodation to suit their needs. HomeAway offers Faro tourists holiday villas in Santa Bárbara de Nexe that are conveniently close to the airport. They are spacious, boasting large compounds with some having swimming pools. The closeness of Santa Bárbara de Nexe holiday rentals to shopping centres and restaurants is another added advantage.

Things to do

-Monuments: One of the most poignant monuments in all Portugal is found in Faro; the Capelo dos Ossos which is part of the Igreja do Carmo church. Lined up inside the chapel are the bones of over 1,000 monks who once served there. Those staying in Santa Bárbara de Nexe holiday homes won’t have to walk too far to get to the Church of Santa Bárbara, a Baroque edifice that started off as a chapel in the 15th century.

-Nature trails: Exploring the famous Ria Formosa National Park by boat has to be one of Faro’s greatest pleasures. This stretch of marshland and islands continues along the Portuguese coastline into Spain. There are stopovers on the islands as part of this two and a half-hour excursion. Along the way tourists will be treated to the sight of several birds species.

-Beaches: At the Praia da Faro holidaymakers will get to enjoy plenty of sun and sand in relative seclusion. The beach stretches for miles and miles and makes crowding virtually impossible. For more sun and sand visitors need to head out to the Deserta Island, an uninhabited island not too far from Faro. Here they will have the beautiful golden sands of the Cape of St. Mary practically all to themselves.

-Museums: History buffs as well as art lovers will have no reason to be bored as they will have the Faro Archaeological Museum at their disposal. Don’t be fooled by its size, once inside, one will be captivated by the numerous artefacts on display. Among these are interesting paintworks and charcoal pictures by Carlos Augusto. The building itself with its numerous arches, is a beauty to behold.

-Water sports: To explore the world beneath the surface of the Atlantic, visitors staying in holiday homes in Santa Bárbara de Nexe holiday homes can stop by scuba diving centres that are near the Faro beach and hire gear. Those inexperienced in this kind of activity can be put through their first steps by experts in diving schools.

Two bedrooms have air conditioning and one bedroom has a large fan. Plenty of room to relax. Its about 10mins drive from the airport. We used Funny Orange Transfers €36 return. Excellent service highly recommended!!! We used taxis into Faro about 10 mins into the centre (Eva Hotel) cost just under €10 each way. Would reccommend a Hire Car. The provided bikes came in handy for trip to small local supermarket about 5 mins away for day to day groceries etc. Good wifi signal speed and strenght. All in all I would highly recommend this property to couples or families.

Peaceful rural area but still convenient for supermarket, local towns and excellent beaches. Cannot fault the villa itself, modern, clean and very spacious plus excellent pool and lovely big gardens. Nice weather too - would love to visit again!
