“Lovely rural spot with great accomodation” We stayed at Casa dos Avos in August. A car is needed but what we enjoyed was being away from the main tourist resorts in a busy time of the year. The villa is eveything that the owner stated and we loved the peace and tranquility although withing 20 minutes you could be at the coast. We enjoyed travelling in land and sometimes didn't see other vehicles on the roads for many miles. We ate at local restaurants - superb food and good value for money. We would love to return and would definitely recommend satying at the property.
Let loose on the beach in this sun-drenched Portuguese city, well known as a party destination. There’s far more to Faro than just cocktails; it's a great place to explore everything that Portugal has to offer. Book a holiday rental in Faro today to see for yourself!
Many tourists pass through en-route to more popular Portuguese destinations, but the historic old town, pretty marina and café culture ensure Faro is an excellent choice for any holiday.
What to Do
If the idea of exploring further afield appeals, you’ll find that much of the Algarve is accessible from Faro, making it a great base for exploring the region.
By night, party on Rua do Prior, the main bar street. There's a bar to suit every taste, with some particularly interesting themes, such as an Iron Maiden themed bar!

Simply the best
From start to finish dealing with James & Celia was an absolute pleasure, nothing was too much trouble. On arrival we were given the full tour of the property & they made it quite clear that we were to get in touch for any reason whatsoever. The villa is spacious, well fitted with everything you need & very comfortable. We had our wedding there with family & friends & all were impressed. The pool is magnificent & warm enough to swim in all day until early evening. The village is literally a 10 minute walk with all amenities you could possibly need including cafe / bars, supermarket & restaurants. Stunning location with views all the way down to Faro. Thanks for a wonderful stay, will be booking again later this year! …

Monte-Bougainvillea GIRASOL - holiday apartment, car included!
Fabulous, relaxing location away from the busy tourist areas.
This is just the type of location we were looking for! The newly refurbished accommodation had everything we needed. Quiet, and relaxing. The owners Jean-Charles and Sylvie were perfect hosts providing a well equipped house, maps and advice. Even included a rescue service when we got lost finding the accommodation.
And their wonderfully well behaved dog Dixie was a source of amusement for all.
Many thanks for a wonderful stay. …
