Set in the sunny Algarve region, 10 min drive away from the beach or mountains makes Kwadalayo Art Quarters the perfect setting for an unforgettable holiday. The apartment is located nearby the 738 roundabout, the popular land mark which marks the end of the famous 'Estrada Nacional N2 (EN2)', the longest Portuguese road and the only one in Europe that crosses a country along its entire length. 10 min drive away from the typical village of Estoi, were the Roman Ruins of Milreu (a Roman villa with private thermal baths) and the Baroque Place of Estoi (often compared as a mini Versailles) can be visited. 5 min drive (15 min walking distance) away from Faro´s fortified historical center conquered from a Moorish prince. It is also possible to catch a boat and visit the islands and the famous beautiful Ria Formosa. Walking distance from supermarkets and 2min drive from shopping centre. The name Kwadalayo comes from the South African roots of the artist / designer and owner. In the Zulu language, 'KWA' means 'THE PLACE' and 'DALA' means 'CREATORS'. When we place them together, Kwadalayo means 'THE CREATORS PLACE'. Kwadalayo reflects our philosofy and our way of life.

Fab apartment and very spacious. Very cheerful and everything we needed. Supermarkets and cafes a short stroll away. Only problem I had was it was too far to walk to the Marina area and hard to get taxi at very busy times. Otherwise excellent.

About the neighbourhood
Faro - Algarve's capital has a more distinctly Portuguese feel than most resort towns. It has an attractive marina, well-maintained parks and plazas and a historic old town full of pedestrian lanes and outdoor cafes. Its student population of 8000 ensures a happening nightlife, and its theatre scene is strong. Marvellously preserved medieval quarters harbour curious museums, churches and a bone chapel. The lagoons of the Parque Natural da Ria Formosa and nearby beaches, including the island sands of Ilha de Faro to the southwest and Ilha da Barreta (aka Ilha Deserta) to the south.
