Here is our travel guide on how to travel from Faro Airport to Vitor’s Village in Ferragudo for less than €8. In our honest opinion, it was the best option, cheap and fun.

First of all, we got to enjoy Algrave for what it is, as we traveled in bus and train with the locals. Finally, we enjoyed the change in Faro, as we took a few hours to do some shopping and walk around. Faro is a beautiful place, with a great port where you can take boat trips to enjoy the natural islands around it.

So, here is the Faro Airport to Vitor’s Village Step by Step Bus and Train Travel Guide

Step 2: Get off at the last stop in Faro, which is a few steps away from the train station. As you get out and face the road, you will have to turn left and walk towards the train station.

Step 4: Come out at Ferragudo Station. You will notice is only one line and looks very small and run down.

Step 5:  As you come out the train, walk straight ahead out of the station and keep walking ahead until you come at a crossroad. There you need to cross the road and turn right. Keep walking straight until you get to a Lidl supermarket. From here is about 10 minutes walk to Vitor’s Village Resort.

From Lidl you keep on walking straight up, across what looks like a rundown building. On your left hand side you will see a car workshop and on the left green space.

The man in the car workshop was kind enough to give us directions to the Vitor’s Village Resort. Everyone knows the place, is very popular in the village. You will arrive at a roundabout and you need to cross but keep straight – the same road you came from. You will pass by local houses and a tiny bus stop and then keep on going until you come across a tiny pavement and a curve. Keep on the same side as you take the curve and go up. Keep straight on the same side and you will come in front of the resort, as you have just walked up the hill where Vitor’s Village sits. Beware that this route takes you on the driveway into the hotel and it’s a bit of a steep walk up the hill, and reception will be on the left hand side.

Feel free to print out these directions or just ask the locals for the hotel name, they were very friendly with us.
