10 Best Long-Term Rentals In Faro, Portugal - Updated 2024

Contributing Writer
| 4 min read

Faro, the capital of Algarve region, is an underrated destination in Portugal. One of the fascinating things about this place is Parque Natural da Ria Formosa, a series of saltwater lagoons that is an ecosystem for migratory birds. Slow down by spending time on pristine beaches on the southern side, such as Praia de Faro and Praia da Ilha Deserta. Or explore the old quarter (Cidade Velha) which houses landmarks, namely Arco da Vila gateway and Paço Episcopal.

Most often, tourists only pass through this city on a day trip. However, we recommend you spend some time here exploring its natural beauty and rich history. You will not be disappointed! Read on as we have carefully curated the list of the best long-term rentals in Faro, Portugal, for that extended vacation.

We handpicked these listings carefully, considering (wherever possible) host status, recent guest reviews, location, accommodation type, prices, decor, availability of dates, and long-term stay rules and regulations. The image galleries get refreshed with the latest updates regularly. They were last updated on July 16, 2024.
