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!

A little corner of Paradise!
Only a 20 min drive from Faro airport and we were given a wonderful welcome by the owners. Electronic gates give added security and lead to a spacious well designed house with swimming pool and sun loungers and tables around the pool. A BBQ and covered area nearby for evening dining. The kitchen is equipped to a very high standard as are all the other rooms in the house. Insect screens ar fitted on all windows and the kitchen door - allowing ventilation without the problem of mosquitos!
We had a super holiday there for a week. It is about a 40 minute drive to the Spanish town of Ayamonte and for beaches, Faro is very close by, Albufeira a little further on but is was always wonderful to get back to the peaceful rural scene where the house is.
We hope to go back again. …
Villa close to Faro, Algarve
Great place to be.
Jose could not have been more friendly or welcoming. Little touches like meeting us at the airport so we did not have to find the villa were greatly appreciated. The villa itself is fairly small, but was ample for myself and my wife. The terrace area is a lovely place to eat and sit out on an evening, and the views were stunning. …
Nice house with pool 5 minutes from de beach
The hospitality from them was great they picked us from the airport when we landed and dropped us off when we departed the country. There was a problem with the fridge one day and they replaced the fridge within the day which was very nice of them. The pool was very clean and nice, the house looked well maintained when we arrived. Before we booked our stay any questions I had, I would email the owners and they would reply very quickly, they helped us rent a car for our holiday and also told us directions to get to popular attractions within the city. I do not have any complaints about this stay at all …
Cottage Nest Love - LOVE NEST
This is a very special place where you can quickly forget the stresses and strains of everyday life. Karl and Daphne, the hosts are amazing people who go out of there way to make you feel welcome but never intrude on your holiday. They certainly have got it right. The pool is a perfect place to relax during the day and we loved watching the sun go down from the upper sun deck which is very secluded with outdoor shower, jacuzzi and perfect views. There are many places to visit close by (you do need a car) and lots of Local restaurants serving delicious food at excellent prices. Our visit was in the wonderful warmth of July but hopefully our next visit will be during Spring or Autumn so we can get out and do some walking. The area looks great for exploring on foot. …

The apartment itself is beautiful and was perfect for me, my boyfriend and friends. It could be a little noisy for some folk as right in the corner of marina but we loved it. We didn't however receive fresh sheets or towels as expected for our week long stay which was disappointing. Despite this I would go back again however the price has now increased quite dramatically so doubt I'll be back, this is disappointing too. …
