a great place for a short break

We did not want to go to far so decided on Faro to stay the place is very unspoilt with a good mixture of old and new all the locals were very friendly and prices wre very reasonable for drinks and food the modern shops wre very nice but seemed expensive the old town is worth a look with a nice church in a large square and lines of orange trees look out for the storks that seem to nest all over the place there is no beach but a short boat trip can take you to one of the islands again not busy the food is mainly fresh fish that is lovley so if you want a laid back break this is the place

Estoi is a sleepy little place about 10km north of Faro

Quiet village, off the tourist trail. Apart from driving through it, didn't have time to explore, but doubt if there are any 'touristy' things there.

The best thing about my stay was ...

Faro is handy for frequent flights to many UK destinations

Great little city

Chose Faro because it was so close to the airport and don't really like holiday resorts full of apartments and tourists. Faro provided a great way of seeing local culture and people. Loved the old city within the walls, where we ate in some lovely restaurants.

6/10 Good

09 September 2010

Interesting.

Quirkly little place with no beach. Nice friendly beaches a short boat ride away. Bone chapel worth a look, but will only occupy for 20 minutes tops. Start or end a trip there, I'd not do more than two nights there if going back.

The best thing about my stay was ...

Old town, and bone chapel.

25 October 2011

Could do with a facelift

Mixture of the old and new with little thought given to the outcome. Some lovely places side by side with some dives. Pity - as the weather is wonderful and the place is only 10 minutes by taxi from the airport. Its crowning glory is Hotel Eva down at the port - lovely hotel, lovrly people.

The best thing about my stay was ...

Hotel Eva.

19 July 2011

A very nice town

We were in Faro for a event just beside the airport. We stayed and spent a lot of out time in the town which was very busy because of this event. My erperience is that the town is much quieter outside this events timeframe. The bars and restaurants in Faro are many and varied, we enjoyed some great meals, some great drinks and the ladies enjoyed the shopping. Sunday is a quiet day though as most shops and restaurants are closed. If you want to venture towards the airport the Forum Algarve (Jumbo) shopping centre will cater for all your needs.

The best thing about my stay was ...

Faro can be lively or quiet as you want it

6/10 Good

Interesting city for short stay

Faro is an interesting place - lots of museums and historical sites, lovely town square, great marina. There are lots of shops ranging from tacky tourist stuff to very upmarket designer stores. The little tourist train is great fun. Plenty of eating places. Personally wouldn't stay more than few days though.

The best thing about my stay was ...

friendly people and good places to eat
