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.

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.

Wonderful villa for our family holiday of 3 generations

5 of 5
We've just returned from a fabulous week's stay at Lucy and Julia's gorgeous villa - clean, spacious, comfortable and with every amenity supplied. We especially enjoyed the wonderful seating area outside, with comfy seats and couches in the shade, and study wooden sunbeds for those who love to brave the heat! The rooftop area was beautiful for evening drinks watching the sun go down, and the large pool was a hit with us all. Inside the villa, the sitting room and its 3 very comfy sofas were perfect for relaxing, and the TV and games system looked great, although we never really got around to using them much. Ceiling fans and air conditioning kept us cool. The kitchen was well equipped, and the second fridge freezer in the laundry room was perfect for storing drinks. Gina, our contact in Portugal, was very helpful, meeting us at the villa and showing us everything the villa had to offer, but also later in the week when we had some questions. We also had a worry about the pool around 9pm one night, and she organised the pool maintenance man to come round within about 10 minutes, despite the lateness of the hour. All in all a fabulous holiday; we were very sad to leave...

Nice time away

5 of 5
We stayed in this beautiful villa for a week and really enjoyed the stay and nearby locations. The property is 15-20 mins. away from most beaches. The villa was comfortable with a nice private pool. Only complain we had was there were no essential supplies like toilet paper, tissue rolls, detergents etc and we had to buy everything. It is difficult to buy these items just for a week's stay. Luckily, we had a car and there are few stores 10 minutes away. Mike was very helpful and easy to reach. He personally came by to introduce himself and give us some local tips. We look forward to renting a villa again in the future!
