Winters last from December to March, when daytime temperatures are between 15 °C and 19 °C and nights around 10 degrees. Most of the rain falls during the wintermonths while summers are very dry.



Getting There

By Plane

Faro Airport (FAO) is about 2.5 kilometres from Faro. It's one of the busier airports in the summer season from April to October, though much quieter the rest of year. Quite a few airlines, including many charter airlines and some budget airlines serve the region.
Over 10 car rental firms are located at the airport. The airport is also close to the A22 toll free highway, with connections throughout the Algarve and direct to Lisbon and Spain.
