Why people love visiting historic Faro

Are you looking for specific amenities for your getaway? Many of our vacation rentals feature full kitchens and laundry facilities.

Things to do

Faro is brimming with history

Culture vultures won't be disappointed when they stay in a Faro vacation rental. There's a smorgasbord of historical attractions to keep you busy for your entire vacation. Think 16th-century former convents, museums brimming with artifacts and remnants of ancient Roman ruins, not to mention the white-washed Portuguese cathedral. To delve into Portugal's rich ocean-faring heritage, try to swing by the Maritime Museum which houses scale model boats and memorabilia. If you time your visit right, you can join the annual classical music festival, a favorite fixture in the Faro calendar. If you miss it, fear not, there are plenty of festivities year-round.


Sand bars and snorkeling in Faro

If you can drag yourself away from the cafe culture and boutique shopping along the Rua de Santo Antonio, there's plenty to do near your Faro vacation rental. The little sand bar of Ilha Deserta just south of Faro has no development, bar a small restaurant, and offers miles of uninterrupted golden sand. There's much you can do on the water. Those on a romantic break should consider hiring one of the yachts and skippers for a private sunset sail and sundowner. Alternatively, you can head out during the day to fish for tuna or snorkel with colorful marine life.


Avoid Faro's summer crowds

Its southern, coastal position draws in the European families on their summer breaks throughout July and August. You can miss the throngs of vacationers and score a deal on a Faro vacation rental if you pick one of the shoulder months. Visit between April and June or September and October and you'll be basking in bright skies and a gorgeous temperature without having to duck and dive along the cobbled walkways in town. It's still plenty warm enough to laze around on the beach and, without crowds, you'll find a peaceful spot.

Natural features

Faro is a twitcher's delight

While wildlife in town is a little thin on the ground, when you stay in a Faro vacation rental you won't be far from the Ria Formosa Natural Park, an important breeding ground for birdlife, some of which are endemic to the region. If you're a twitcher, don't forget your binoculars when you're exploring the maze of marshes and canals that make up the park. You're not going to want to miss sighting one of the 200 recorded species or the 20,000 water birds. As you pass the oyster beds, you'll likely spot waders like grey plovers and spoonbills.
