Have a look at this great holiday package: For only €184 per person you can fly return to Faro and stay in a 3 star hotel Villas Barrocal (84% on Tripadvisor) in their self catering apartments in the nearby Pera. Flights are with AerLingus and you’re arriving in the evening. The cheapest and quickest option (€25, 37 mins) is actually to catch a taxi. And since you share the price with your partner it will be less expensive than spending €32 per person on a train that last over 2 hours.

You are staying in a standard apartment that is located in Silves (Pera), close to many different beaches to choose from. Aqualand the water park is also close by, so the place is also suitable for kids. If you decide to stay at the hotel you can relax at the outdoor pool (there is also a poolside bar) or play a round of tennis on the on-site tennis court. The dates I picked out for you are in May, so you can make it a perfect spring holiday to start the sunny season (let’s hope for it)!

(FYI: put in the hotel’s name again to filter the results when you’re linked to expedia!)
