Apartment attached to the typical Algarve villa with independent entrance. With free parking and good access to the city center, on foot or by auto-bus .. You can go to the beach by boat or bus. The city of Faro is the capital of the province of Algarve, you can visit other cities around traveling by train. Faro near the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve. Its beaches are islands with warm waters and wide expanse of sand: The temperature ranges from April to June 18 and 22 degrees. They can come two or three friends, or a young couple with a child. They will all be very well received and will be satisfied. Faro is a beautiful city and I really like to welcome
we had a lovely stay in Faro. We found with Maria a second mum, really kind and helpful. We recommend to rent a car as we did (60€ for 3 days) : it's better to see all the south coast as Faro can be visited quickly. thanks again Maria and Francisco.
Perfect place to stay. Totally recommendable!
María es una señora adorable, nos recibió en su suite, que es como la describen ya anteriores huespedes, comoda y perfecta para que una pareja pase unos dias en la zona. María se comunica a la perfección con sus huespedes, habla francés e inglés y se defiende con el español. Nos hizo sentir muy a gusto, y nos hizo varias recomendaciones para conocer la zona. Nosotros fuimos en coche para recorrer la zona, por lo que no nos importó que el alojamiento no esté en el centro de la ciudad, más bien era lo que buscabamos. El último día incluso nos ofreció unos higos que estaban deliciosos. Una estancia fenomenal y el sur de Portugal es precioso.
Maria was so kind and warmful with us.
The place was very practical, and well organized.
The kitchen is well equiped and the terrace is really appreciable.
The bathroom and the room are clean and spacy.
The internet does not work very good and we advise this place only for people who travel by car, otherwise it's a bit far by walking to the right center of Faro.
Hope it will help
Maria is very helpful and picked us up on from the bus stop. Also she bought water for us and called us a taxi on our way to the airport. Place was clean. It is about a 20-30 minute walk to center of town, but taxis are relatively cheap (€5 to city center/€10 to airport).
Unfortunately my boyfriend and I had a bad experience with that place.
We choose this place because it was in the center of the city, near all public transports (station and bus stop) and near the beach. (when we booked in April 2013, THE AIRBNB map located the apartment in the center of Faro).
Indeed when we arrived at night, Maria received us very nicely . The day after we find out that the location was wrong : the apartment is in the FARO city (email hidden) far from the beach.
If you want to go to the center of the city, you have to walk 25mn or take bus n°1 for 10mn. There is a bus every 15mn .
If you want to go to the beach of Faro, you have to take bus n°17 for 40 mn (summer schedule) and the ballade is not very romantic. You cross suburb, highway, airport. There is a bus every 45mn and the bus stop is at 10mn walk .
If you want to go to the island beach, you have to go to the center of Faro (remember) and take a boat for 40mn.
"the beach is an isle, is near" is the ad's promise , but it's not true.
Actually the beach is far and the house is along a big road with traffic night and day. Not really what we expected.
After this first day, we phoned Maria to tell her how we were disappointed. She told us she knew about that location mistake; it was an Airbnb mistake which has been corrected since. The point is: she never informed us about that very important mistake.
So we decided to come back home after one day (we booked 14 days) and we stayed 2 days more : time for us to change our flight. We just paid our 3 night in Faro.
Once back home we find out the apartment we had was not the one we saw on the airbnb website.
Even it was clean (it's the minimum after all, not a feat), the kitchen and the bedroom were smaller and had similar comfort. The big difference was the bathroom. Not really like the picture. It was very very much smaller. When you sit on the toilet your head is in the sink.
We think there are more than one apartment in rent and pictures correspond to the largest or to Maria's home.
Conclusion: Not the right location. Not the right apartment. We lost 1000 euros for a flight, for a destination which we never choose if we knew where it really was.
Our advice : If you choose this place, you really need a car.
Sophie and Jeremy very disappointed.
More informations about Faro buses, check (website hidden) (it's the company bus).
Sophie and Jeremias. Não tive culpa da vossa decepção. Deviam ter-se informado sobre a cidade e sua praia. Há pessoas que gostam de andar a pé e transportes publicos e outros não. Desolada com a vossa descrição da casa de banho. Afinal vinham para ir passear e nao para apreciar a casa. Precisavem de uma boa cama, com lençois impecáveis, toalhas, internet., cozinha, louça, electrodomésticos, duche e limpesa. Nada disso faltou.Tiveram uma recepcão depois da meia noite.Tem paragem do mini-bus para o centro,, dois supermercados aqui perto. Não percebo o engano.Nos comentários dos meus convidados eles explicam onde fica e como vão para o centro e praia.e como sou, como os trato. Nada foi escondido.
Maria was a wonderful host. She is such a generous, warmhearted and joyful person! She was very helpful and gave us great recommendations for Faro. The apartment was very nice and clean and we enjoyed staying at this apartment, with Maria as our host, very much. We hope to come back to Marias apartment in the future. Thank you Maria for giving us such a wonderful time in Faro.
Très très chouette studio indépendant de la maison des hôtes!
Hôtes très sympathiques, polyglottes et prêt à tout pour leurs invités!
Studio un peu excentré du centre même de Faro mais on y accède facilement à pied en 15 min (en descente à l'aller, c'est toujours plus facile que le retour :-P). Studio bien fourni en matériel et équipé d'air conditionné bien agréable par fortes chaleurs.
A recommander +++!
Maria is a very helpfull and friendly person. So she told me about the coty and how to get to the beach. she also gave me maps and timetable. She and her husbabd brought me to the trainstation.
The appartement (is not just a Room ) is very lovely. It is in a big house with seperatet door. So you can feel free.
Also it was clean.
If you dob't have a car, it is a bit complicatet with public transports. And the house is out of the center.
But all in all, it is a lovely place to be and I recommend Maria's place.
very nice place & a friendly host. easy bus into town or a 20 minute walk.
