where to stay in algarve

by senahel

as this is a holiday for my wife who just lost her mother, i am looking for suggestions of which towns or citys to stay in. and places to visit.

will be hiring a car so we can travel around.

all suggestions welcome, as i don't have accomodation booked yet.

thanks in advance......

My suggestion would be that you stay in Faro itself for a night or two. It's a lovely little town, quite picturesque with a gorgeous Old Town and waterfront.
The Eva Hotel, right on the marina and bang in the centre of town offers very good value off-season rates with a great breakfast thrown in.

Hello,

I can second Katherine's suggestion: Stay in Faro. I once stayed one night there and really enjoyed it. You find an accomodation tip on my Faro page.

I hope this helps,

HORSCHECK

Both Faro and Albufeira are nice places to choose as a base in the Algarve.

January it's very calm there look at www.visitalgarve.pt/?idioma=en to get some inspiration on what to do based on what you normally enjoy doing.
A possible itinerary (if you are interested in a bit of the portuguese/algarve history) and would be Faro-Lagos-Sagres-Silves-Faro.

You have endless options in the Algarve

Staying right in Faro and use it as a base to explore fantastic inland villages as well as places along the coast is indeed practical especially if you have your own transport, but Faro is a little provincial city

If you're looking somewhere quieter and also closer to the water and specially appealing, consider staying in Tavira - it's a gorgeous little place and greatly historical

When I visited the Algarve it was the first week in February and the weather was very mild with quite a lot of sunshine. In the towns the orange trees were all laden with fruit and the countryside was a veil of almond blossoms.

We didn't have a car but we visited Lagos by train and Tavira by bus. Of the two I preferred Tavira but the beach and rock formations in Lagos were remarkable. A trip we really enjoyed was a boat trip from Faro to the Ilha Deserta, through very spectacular lagoons.

I'm sure you'll love the Algarve. Enjoy your trip !

Travel Tips for Faro

The marina.

by Maurizioago

Faro has a small marina bordered by a nice small park named Jardim Manuel Bolivar. Near the marina there are also some restaurants.

Walking along the marina is a nice thing to do if you have to spend some time waiting for your bus departure. In fact the bus station is quite near this area. You could also spot some nice boats like that on the first pic.

Coastline and Marina

by HORSCHECK

Take a walk along the lovely coastline near Faro's city centre. There is a promenade which offers great views of the Ria Formosa Lagoon, which is a system of 6 barrier islands, 1 of them is an artifical island. The area is a stopping place for hundreds of different birds.
You will also come along Faro's Marina which is a yacht-filled harbour with fancy cafes and a maritime museum.

Some culinary local customs

by Ekaterinburg

At every restaurant we visited in Faro there was a EUR 2 -3 cover charge per person and for this you get a delicious basket of ciabata type bread, fish paste and sometimes cheese or olives.

Salads were absolutely gorgeous and I never tasted such good tomatoes lightly drizzled with olive oil. All day long we saw local people delivering fish they had caught to the restaurants and everything we ate seemed unbelievably fresh and delicious.

Wine is very cheap (and very good) which really keeps down the cost of eating out. We liked the reds so much, that unfortunately, we never got around to trying the white.

The photo shows a little delicacy I spotted at the food market and couldn't resist buying.
It didn't taste quite as good as it looked but who could resist it ?

Magnificent Roman ruins of Milreu

by berenices

Just 5 kilometers from Faro is a complex of impressive Roman ruins which is now a national monument and one of the most important sites recording the Roman presence in Algarve. Milreu was a luxurious villa which was transformed into a prosperous farming enterprise. The complex is composed of the manor house, farm buildings, wine press, baths, a temple, and mausoleums among others. In the baths, one can still see very well-preserved tiles decorated with fish and marine life. One can see from what remains the opulent lifestyle of the villa's former inhabitants, as well as imagine the richness of the region, with its fertile lands, abundant sources of water, good climate, and proximity to the sea.

Portimão.

In this...

by Kozzmozz

Portimão.

In this fishermen’s town, visit the mother-church (14th century, rebuilt in the 18th century), the Colégio Church (17th century), and the Town Hall. In the suburbs, the renowned Praia da Rocha (with its Santa Catarina de Ribamar Fortress), and the Roman ruins of Abicada.
