|Faro town is a 15 minute drive there is a large shopping centre that offers good facilities. Most tours offer a pickup/drop off bus service from VdL to the attractions. Options include horse riding, fishing, yachting/sailing, shark, dolphin watching, 4x4 safari tours & Cultural visits. In Almancil there is a karting track if you need to burn off that adrenalin..... There is also an Aqua Park 10 mins drive on the other side of Quateria) and a Swim With Dolphin experience and Theme Park (30 mins drive on the Motorway).
In the apartment is a well stocked folder with all the details of the attractions so you can read at leisure and book you choices. In Almancil (5 min drive) is a beautiful church with wonderful mosiacs that is open to the public. Quarteria (5 min drive) has a very impressive farmers market that is well worth visiting (oh and testing out the produce !!). Both of these attractions you can walk to usually in about an hour if you are feeling energetic......otherwise I have a folder with telephone numbers of local taxi services if you do not wish to drive.
|How to get there|
Many airlines including BA, Easyjet and Monarch all run a good schedule of flights to Faro. I recommend a website www.skyscanner.net to see the best price for your flights, it is a very easy and compact site that loads up all airlines departing from your airport of choice with the times and most importantly the COST !!
