Location description from owner

The Algarve region

The Algarve is the most southern region of Portugal. The region coincides with the Faro District, and has as its administrative centre the city of Faro, where both international airport at Faro (FAO) and public university (the University of Algarve) are located. Tourism and related activities are extensive and make up the bulk of the Algarve summer economy. Production of food, which includes fish and other seafood, fruit, oranges, carob beans, figs and almonds, is also economically important in the region.

The Algarve is the most popular tourist destination in Portugal, and one of the most popular in Europe. Its population triples in the peak holiday season thanks to a high influx of visitors, and receives an average of 7 million foreign tourists each year. In total, including national visitors, almost ten million people visit the Algarve every year.

Faro

Faro: Algarve capital has a more distinctly Portuguese feel than most resort towns. Many visitors only pass through this underrated town . it makes an enjoyable stopover. It has an attractive marina, well-maintained parks and plazas and a historic old town full of pedestrian lanes and outdoor cafes. Its student population of 8000 ensures a happening nightlife, and its theatre scene is strong. Marvellously preserved medieval quarters harbour curious museums, churches and a bone chapel. The lagoons of the Parque Natural da Ria Formosa and nearby beaches, including the island sands of Ilha de Faro to the southwest and Ilha da Barreta ( Ilha Deserta) to the south, add to Faro.

“We would recommend to everyone”

Reviewed 8 Jul 2015

We stayed for our honeymoon and had an amazing time! The villa is great, all the things you need for an easy self-catering stay. The private terrace was huge, and got the sun the whole day and the pool was lovely, plenty of room for a swim about. The gardens and pool area were always well kept & we had a our own gate to come and go by. The owners, Joao and Theresa couldnt have been more helpful, they made the whole experience so relaxed & made our honeymoon such a memorable and enjoyable holiday. They were both forthcoming with help, directions and even some nail polish remover! Not to mention picking us up and dropping us off at the airport, and a few other trips into Faro, they made the whole experience stressless and were attentive without being overbearing. If we make it back to Portugal, we will definately be back.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your Super Kind and Super nice review!... I'm very happy that you had such a beautiful honeymoon!...

“A lovely place - very relaxing stay”

Reviewed 8 May 2015

Stayed early May - the weather was fantastic -just one cloudy day. The apartment is exactly as described and was ideal. The apartment is above the house and has a fantastic secluded balcony that overlooks the surrounding area. Joao and his family are very welcoming and friendly - he picked us up from the airport and stopped off at the supermarket for provisions. He is a very nice man and gave us lots of tips for the area. We walked a lot and I used one of the bikes riding to Quinta do Largo which is a good bike ride. All in all very enjoyable !

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review. Looking forward to host you more times in the future.

“Nice and quiet house, excellent host”

Reviewed 10 Jun 2014

From we were picked up at the airport till we left very early in the morning João and his wife did all they could so that our stay should be as comfortable and interesting as possible. Excellent hosting! The apartement was very convenient, big enough for a family of four, and with a very nice and hot pool to relax in. We also used the bikes to take a look around the city, and all in all this was a perfect long weekend off for us.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review . Looking forward for your next stay.

“Perfect for our short break adventure. Relaxing, beautiful and welcoming”

Reviewed 9 Apr 2014

We stayed in Gambelas Flag house for 5 days. It was perfect for the short break we had planned. Joao was incredibly welcoming and was able to answer all our questions about the local area. The villa is not very far away from the airport which was perfect for us. It is also perfectly positioned for getting into Faro. We used the bikes provided to cycle into Faro or to the local supermarket most days. The villa is well furnished and had everything we needed with Joao on hand if we needed anything else. We had a lovely stay and will hopefully be returning in the future. We would recommend this for anyone who wants a more independent break away in Faro.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review. Looking forward for your next stay.

“Here you find hospitality!”

Reviewed 2 Mar 2014

Senhor Joao is a great host, you can feel that he really cares for his guests and want to make their stay as comfortable as possible. We even could borrow a baby bed, chair and some Dutch baby books of his own grandchild. Drinks, herbs for cooking, tea, coffee and even the famous cake of his wife were all in the apartment. Definately a place to visit, with easy access to the different areas of the algarve. Espero que Vamos visitar o casa novamente no futuro, Obrigada sr. Joao!

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review. Looking forward for your next stay.

“A little oasis in Faro”

Reviewed 5 Oct 2013

If what you want is a quiet, private, reasonably priced, hotel-like hub to explore Faro and the Algarve, we would highly recommend the Bandeira residence. You will be welcomed into a private residence with a view of a lovely pool and the neighbourhood, complete with a bottle of wine, a few beers and ice cream treats. The suite has a fully stocked kitchen, private entrance and bathroom, wifi, and the absolute best terrace you could want. Joao, your host, is always willing to help. He drove us on a tour of Faro, picked us up and dropped us off at the train station, and even took us to the car rental place so that we could hire a car and explore the Algarve. We recommend a car rental as this place isn't directly downtown. We also had access to bikes to tour Faro at our leisure, which we did! At the residence, we were invited to visit with his friends and learn about all things Portuguese. This is why Canadians travel, not just to "do the sights", but to experience. We loved this opportunity. We also took a dip in the pool whenever we wanted... It seemed like a private pool! I especially loved using the shower by the pool! Other important things: the place is clean... spotless, actually. And if you need something, ask! Joao really wants you to have a lovely time. Thank you Joao, for your generous hospitality. We are so glad we found you!

“its a home away from home”

Reviewed 23 Aug 2013

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.
