Figueira is approx. 60 miles west of Faro airport. Travelling from the U.K.many airlines fly there on a daily basis from a variety of airports In addition there are many regular charter flights. Faro is also served by international airlines as are Lisbon and Malaga.
Although there is a good public bus service and taxis can be readily used, we do think that the use of a car will maximise your enjoyment of the area. We can advise on local, cost-effective car hire. For those wanting to take their own car, it is possible to take the ferry to Santander or Bilbao and then drive down through Spain and Portugal. Although this is about a 10 hour drive, it provides an opportunity to see the interior of the Iberian Peninsular rarely seen by tourists. An overnight stop at one of the famous Paradors would make a memorable trip.
