Faro is the gateway for the whole Algarve Region of Southern Portugal. A small and elegant city, a car rental tour of the region will highlight some beautiful countryside and reveal both Arab and Roman influences on architecture and culture. The city is also the gateway to some spectacular beaches and golf resorts across the Algarve.
We recommend starting your car rental tour of the area with a visit to the nearby town of Almancil. A picturesque hamlet, it is renowned for the Church of Sao Lourenco de Matos, which features some beautiful 18th century blue tiles in its interior decoration.
North of Faro, your car rental journey will take you to the delightful inland village of Estoi. This unique little town is notable for its impressive Roman ruins, pretty parish church and its formidable local manor house, called the 'Palacio de Estoi'. Car rental will also give you access to the ancient town of Santa Barbara de Nexe, with its bronze-age fort on a hilltop nearby.
The five star tourist developments of Quinta do Lago and Vale de Lobo are west of Faro, and are both a short drive using car rental. These excellent holiday resorts feature seven golf courses, numerous tennis courts and riding schools, plus high quality hotels and villas.
No car rental tour of the Faro Region would be complete without a trip out to the Ria Formosa Lagoon. A 170 km square nature reserve, the area provides a rest point for hundreds of migrating birds. Car rental is also a great option if you want to visit the nearby sandy beach, which is just 7 km from Faro.
