“its a home away from home” Had a lovely time, the host and his family are so friendly and helpful and considerate, we loved the cool fresh fruit on arrival to help us cool down.
The accommodation is well equipped, clean and well maintained .
We loved the pool and is always looking forward to a dip in the pool after a day out.
We will definitely be returning and recommend the house.
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!

Lovely Apartment, Faro City Centre
The name says it all!
Lovely Apartment is just that. It is clean, comfortable and extremely convenient. We stayed six days and just used ferries and trains to get about. The Apartment is on the fourth floor with all round views over the city. Don't worry about steps - there is a dinky little lift which gets you and your luggage up and down! It is spacious and well equipped though it is unlikely that you will do much cooking with so many wonderful restaurants within a short distance.
The ferries to the Barrier Islands (Deserta and Culata) are within five minutes walk. There is considerable competition for the various ferry and trip permutations but we found the hop-on/hop-off to the islands gives maximum flexibility. You really do need to spend time on the islands to fully appreciate their character and charm.
The railway station (train fares are very cheap in Portugal) is barely 15 minutes away and with a roughly hourly service along the Algarve Coast in each direction you can really explore the coast. For those interested in wildlife there are many possibilities but one of the most interesting options is to take the train to the little station at Mexilhoera Grande near Lagos and walk down the lanes to the Alvor estuary. It is about two miles each way and almost guarantees sightings of bee-eaters, hoepoes, flamingos and spoonbills as well as a huge variety of flowering plants.
The bus station is close to the railway station and offers additional travel possibilities.
The owner Catarina is extremely helpful and is very prompt in responding to any pre-visit questions about the Apartment, how to find it. She is readily available by phone, email or Whatsapp.
We would thoroughly recommend this Apartment. …

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. …
