LIVING IN SANTA BÁRBARA DE NEXE

AREA OF SANTA BÁRBARA DE NEXE

COUNCIL: FARO, LOCATION: PRETTY LITTLE TOWN AND RURAL FEEL

The small town of Santa Bárbara de Nexe in the district of Faro with its approximately 4 100 inhabitants (2011) lies in the middle of a picturesque landscape about 10 km northwest of Faro and only 2 km north of the highway A22. Once you leave Faro and its suburbs behind you, you immerse in a green and colourful meadowland with almond trees that is still very original – especially between January and May. It’s a perfect hideaway from the turbulent tourism of many coastal towns. The area has a great mixture of different nationalities ith a strong English community.

The area of Santa Barbara provides excellent views from height of about 370 m down to the lowlands between the city of Faro, Olhão, the Ria Formosa and the Atlantic Ocean and is therefore one of the most sought-after areas for those looking to make the Algarve their (second) home. The view south to the plain is fantastic, especially at night, when the lights of Faro glimmer on the horizon.
