Information on Transport on the Day of Arrival

Taxi / Uber / Bolt

If you have Uber, they hang around the airport like flies. There is a designated Taxi rank directly outside the airport. It’s advisable to get a price beforehand as taxis can be expensive here, especially for tourists.

Using Buses

If you want to catch the bus from the airport, get the 118 to Loule, then the 90 to Sao Bras de Alportel and get off at Corotelo / Sao Romao. From the bus stop you have a 2km walk to the Vila via Corotelo.

Vamus is the bus service in this area. The nearest bus stop is by the Corotelo Café, but that only runs at 7am and 7pm. If you want to get a bus to a main town or city, you need to walk 2km to the main N270 road. There is a bus stop by Ze Dias. The 90 bus travels between Loule and Sao Bras. From there you can explore other locations.

Driving & Cars

If driving, head out on the main road (N125) and stay on it to the Faro / Sao Bras de Alportel exit (N2). At the roundabout, take the 3rd turning towards S.B. Alportel (N2) and follow that road for 5.3 km. At the roundabout, take the 1st turn (N2) towards S. Bras de Alportel / Estoi. You will see the signpost for Estoi / MARF/ Sta Barbara Nexe / S. B. Alportel there.

From here, follow the N2 to Sao Bras de Alportel. The route is scenic, but winds a lot so be careful. This road is around 7-8 km long. When you reach the roundabout in Sao Bras De Alportel, you will see a petrol station on the left. The roundabout is on a junction between the N2 and the R270. Take the third turn towards Loule. Follow this road for 3.5km. On this road, you will pass two roundabouts, keep heading for Loule. On the last stretch of the road, you will see a turning to the left with a red & beige house on. Pass this road and slow down as your turning is next left (EM523), signposted Corotelo / Bordeira.

Local Area

Take this road until you get to the Corotelo Café (around 1km). At the junction of Corotelo Café, turn right towards Gorjoes / Fonte de Murta. You will pass by the front of Corotelo Café. Follow this road (EM1306) for around 1km until you get to a right turn with the house name ‘Casa Bavaria’ and number 30 in yellow on the corner. Turn left up the road in front of Casa Bavaria (With a yellow sign 31-33 on the wall and an arrow pointing to Casa Corina. The road narrows to a single carriage.

Parking

If you are bringing, or renting, a car and can walk 1km, it would be useful to us if you would park by Corotelo Café after you have dropped off your things. We believe the Vila only has room for 3-4 cars and we need to keep one of those places free for ingoing and outgoing. I am not sure how many people will have cars, so until we know, this would be easiest for us.

After locating the road, you will find Quinta Das Estrelas on the left after around 200m along a track. Welcome!
