i would like accomodation as close to the rally in july for week beginning 17th july 2012 for one week there will be eight adults.
There are several hotels in Faro itself. They also have a temporary campsite down near the music venue etc for the week of the rally.
Faro Hotels to check - there are more. The HQ for the rally is the Praia de Faro (Faro beach) which is about 7km from the city centre and 1.5km from the airport.
HOTELS IN FARO, PORTUGAL
HOTEL IBIS - 5 minutes by taxi from airport, 5 minutes walk from Forum Algarve shopping centre and about a mile/1.7km from city centre
HOTEL EVA (4*) - city centre, next to bus station and marina. 200 metres from railway station
HOTEL FARO (4*) - city centre, 100 metres from bus station and 300 metres from railway station; close to marina.
HOTEL ALNACIR (2*) - city centre, 300 metres from railway station, 500 metres from bus station.
HOTEL MONACO (3*) - in suburb of Montenegro 1 mile/1.7km from airport, 4 miles/6km from city.
BEST WESTERN HOTEL DOM BERNADO (3*) - edge of city centre, 500m from railway and bus stations.
HOTEL SANTA MARIA (3*) Rua de Portugal - city centre, about 500m from railway and bus stations on foot through city centre pedestrian zone.
Faro city centre is about 4 miles/7km by road from the airport. A taxi will cost around €8 - €10 depending on time of day and number of passengers etc.
There is a limited bus service from the airport into the city, only about once an hour at best. Details at www.algarvebus.info/003.htm - there is no other public transport at the airport.
I hope that helps.
Hi i have rode to rally twice and will be going by plane this year dur to time it takes etc I will be arriving on the thursday around 4pm and back out on the tuesday morning can I stay on the camp site till tuesday or will I have to move off on sunday afternoon like the other web sites are sayingEdited: 5:55 am, July 05, 2012
The official website states the campsite closes one day after the rally ends ie Monday but there are no campsite services from 2pm Sunday
The site has a list of other campsites in the area you could use for the extra night
Due to their being no services available after 2pm you need to vacate the site by this time and seek alternative accommodation.
can u just pay in for the day
Yes you can!
