Since most of our guests arrive by plane, a rental car is recommended. Public transport is available but for full independence we suggest having your own transport. You can find rental cars of all price ranges at the airport in Faro, but you can also rent cars in nearby Lagos.
Rental cars are not expensive in Portugal and just outside the high season you will be able to rent a car very cheaply.
