City living: property for sale in Faro

by Sun’s Dragon

The city of Faro is the capital of the Algarve and it’s the closest residential area to the Algarve’s international airport. Faro is a relatively small but thriving metropolis, with theatres, cinemas, pedestrian shopping and a shopping mall. There are museums, libraries and fantastic architecture to view. Restaurants, cafes and bars as well as nightclubs are all here to be visited. With the University of the Algarve, the marina, the Old Town and a host of events and festivals happening throughout the year, this is an exciting city to live in.

If you would like to be part of the city scene, just take a look at this variety of properties to give you an idea of what’s on offer and what the price ranges are. Looking costs nothing but, who knows, you may just find something that ticks your boxes.

A new build in the city centre

Finding a new build in the middle of a city anywhere in the world is nigh on impossible, but just look at this stunning property. Built on modern lines with high quality finishes, it’s light, airy and spacious with double glazing and electric blinds. The ground floor has a large living area, an office, a kitchen complete with breakfast bar, guest toilet and a patio. On the first floor are three bedrooms with one en suite and a separate bathroom. The attic has two further bedrooms and a bathroom, a closet and laundry. And it doesn’t stop there! In the basement is not only more storage space, but two parking spaces too – a Godsend in any city. The price is a very realistic at €330,000, so it’s doubtful this will be on the market for long.

Faro is also the venue for some of the Algarve’s most popular fairs, festivals and carnivals; the Faro International Motorbike Rally, one of the biggest annual motorbike festivals in Europe, and the Ria Formosa Festival, which celebrates local cuisine with a feast of delicious seafood, to name but two.

There’s an excellent road network around the city and Faro Airport is just a five minute drive away.

For those who prefer an urban rather than rural lifestyle, this city has the best of all worlds.
