Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Faro international Airport: 40.0 km
Railway: Albufeira (Ferreiras): 6.0 km
Low cost airlines such as JET2, Easyjet and BMIbaby together with Ryanair and other major airlines, including Thompsonfly and BA, fly regularly into Faro. Transfers from the airport can be prebooked for either a shuttle bus or private hire. It takes about 35 minutes by car, to reach the apartment which is very easy as it is essentially just down the motorway.
Car hire is useful for exploring, but not essential, as Guia is quite self contained. There are many hire companies operating from within the airport terminal, so this is very easy to do, but there are also agents in Guia itself.
The owner will provide all the details and help needed to arrange whichever transportation you prefer.
