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.

An Idyllic Retreat

5 of 5
We have just returned from a wonderful winter break in this charming cottage. We were warmly welcomed by Ed and Pauline and were delighted to find such clean, warm, characterful and comfortable accommodation, all set in a pretty garden filled with birdsong.There was a most generous welcome pack awaiting us and we quickly felt totally at home. Though set on the edge of a small village, excellent amenities are only a 10 minute drive away in the lovely, old town of Sao Bras with its interesting historic quarter, vibrant Saturday market and a great variety of excellent eating places. Though located in the east of the Algarve, it is easy to reach a host of interesting and beautiful places over the whole of the region and, of course, to comfortably reach Spain and such destinations as Seville or the Donana National Park. Pauline and Ed have compiled a comprehensive file of information and are only too ready to offer help and suggestions without being at all intrusive. We have been travelling to the Algarve now for over 20 years and for the last 8 years taking long stay holidays to avoid the winter at home, but never before have we stayed in such comfortable and incredibly well-equipped accommodation. It was, indeed, with heavy hearts that we set off on our journey home from this very special place.

Every aspect of this booking has been high quality. From an original enquiry and question about the property, a simple booking process, good and accurate info about the property, excellent arrivals directions and information. The property itself is of high quality Vale de Lobo is fabulous even off season. A key aspect for us is the cleanliness of the accomodation - 😁😁 excellent! The Agents Seashell are good resolving a small problem with an ajoining property very satisfactorily. I would have no hesitation in returning. 😁😁😁
