Make a holiday rental home or villa in Santa Barbara de Nexe, Portugal your home away from home

Located just 7km from the centre of Faro, Santa Barbara de Nexe is ideally situated for short holidays to the Algarve, with beaches, golf courses, countryside and excellent little eateries galore. Santa Barbara de Nexe holiday villas are a haven for those who want to enjoy the best of the Algarve without having to battle with tourist crowds and file past signs for ‘full English breakfasts’ before finding a quaint little Portuguese restaurant in which to sample some of the traditional seafood for which the Algarve is famed.

Things to do on holiday in Santa Barbara de Nexe, Portugal

The most important attraction in Santa Barbara de Nexe is the 400 year old church which stands in the centre of the village. Gleaming in the sunlight, the whitewashed church and bell tower is hugely admired by both locals and visitors alike, who flock to see the brilliant Gothic/Manueline style of the building and the varied styles of the interior. Estoi Palace and the Roman site at Milreu are also very close by and well worth investigating during a holiday to Santa Barbara de Nexe.

Although a Santa Barbara de Nexe holiday villa is perfect for a relaxing break, there are a number of entertainment and leisure options with which to keep you occupied. There are many options for walking throughout the surrounding countryside, wandering through fruit orchards and rolling hills, but the favourite route for those taking a Santa Barbara de Nexe holiday villa leads from the village up to the Bronze Age hill fort outside the town. This route is especially popular in the late afternoon, as temperatures drop, and visitors try to walk of their huge restaurant lunches!

Santa Barbara de Nexe is perfect for the beaches of the Algarve too. You can be stretched out on the sand within 15 minutes of leaving a Santa Barbara de Nexe holiday villa, or organising a scuba diving, sailing or windsurfing lesson, a deep sea fishing trip or sightseeing tour of Portugal’s most famous coastline.

There is no shortage of golfing opportunities from a Saint Barbara de Nexe holiday villa either. Like much of the Algarve, Santa Barbara de Nexe is surrounded by a surprising number of top quality golf courses. Many offer 18 holes, but all offer spectacular views and undulating fairways, providing a challenge for any golfer, new or old.

Places to holiday in Santa Barbara de Nexe, Portugal

The town of Faro lies just 7km from a holiday rental in Santa Barbara de Nexe. Faro is a lively university town in which the strong Arab and Roman influences of the Algarve can still be seen, and if you are looking for a world-class restaurant or some resounding nightlife during your stay in a Santa Barbara de Nexe holiday villa, Faro is your place.

Weather in Santa Barbara de Nexe, Portugal

During July and August, average temperatures reach 30˚C, and during the days, Santa Barbara de Nexe villas with pools are very hard to get hold of, but the beaches are sensationally empty, meaning you can always get a great spot on which to lay your towel. In winter, golf holidays flourish, with average temperatures remaining above 15˚C, roughly the same as average temperatures during July in Britain.

Flights to Santa Barbara de Nexe, Portugal

The villa is beautiful, well maintained, with great facilities as well as nice and spacious, as a family of 5 there was room for us all. The pool and outside area are lovely and the views are stunning. Our 3 children spent all day, everyday in the pool, while we watched from the loungers or the covered shaded area, the children never need be out of sight.There is everything at the villa you could need, the owner is so helpful if you need help with anything, just ask. The villa has lots of quirky touch's, felt like a home from home. There are lots of steps in and around the villa, but our 4 year managed them fine. A fantastic place for a family holiday, hope to visit again very soon.
