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.

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.

This is a lovely little house, very quaint with many local features, but with all the modern facilities you could require. Bright rooms and a lovely private roof terrace, make it a fantastic place to stay. It is situated a short walk to a good size supermarket with fresh bread, fish, meats and the normal requirements. Being in the centre of the town, means a leisurely stroll takes you into the heart of the town, with all its bars and restaurants. However, the house is far enough away to make it a very quiet and relaxing area. The other residents in the small cobbled street are local and extremely friendly to their part time neighbours. It would be remiss of me not to mention Merry and Simon who are not your standard owners. They clearly care so much about their properties and most importantly the quality of the holiday their guests enjoy. They can provide you with any help and information you require to ensure you enjoy your time with them. We can honestly say that booking one of their properties really does remove that doubt in the back of your mind, the one we all have, will it be as described, will it be clean and up to a good standard, because they really are as good as they look Thanks to Merry and Simon another great holiday, we will most certainly return to Tavira

A private terrace with barbecue for the fresh fish from the local market. Air condition in all rooms. A number of restaurants on the doorstep overlooking the estuary and its stretch of beach. Definitely going back.
