When flying into Portugal, most European destinations have planes going in and out of Faro’s runways, which are located just eight miles away from Almancil; though, if coming from the USA mainland, Lisbon’s airport, though located almost two hundred miles away, does service direct flights to and from New York City and thus represents a viable alternative to flying into Faro .

To get to Faro via Lisbon—or through just about any major city in Europe for that matter—take one of the six daily trains that lead into this populous Algarve city, and, from there, grab a bus to Almancil, about seventeen of which head out every day. The train from Lisbon will cost you €21 or less, the journey takes between 3 and 4 hours.

Train timetables can be found at www.cp.pt and bus timetables  for Almancil at www.algarvebus.info

If you decide to rent a car from Faro, just take Route 125 west into Almancil.
