Start your trip in Faro

More than sun, sea and golf, the Algarve is a vibrant playground of scenic, cultural and gastronomic delights. Beyond the stunning coastline you’ll find historic villages, rugged mountains and lush valleys. If you want to go straight to vacation mode with no detours, campervan hire Faro is the best choice.

Hire a campervan or motorhome

Located in the heart of the Algarve and just minutes from Faro airport (FAO), Siesta Campers Faro spoils customers with a wide range of campervan rental options including classic campers, modern transporters and elegant motorhomes & RV's. Each van comes fully equipped with everything you need to enjoy a stress free beach holiday.

The Algarve coast

There is no better place to begin exploring the Algarve than the region’s capital Faro. If you're wondering what to do in the Algarve, don't worry, there is plenty to do. You may want to cruise to the nearby seafood paradise of Olhão. This launch pad to stunning off-shore islands, spreads eastward all the way to Tavira, one of the Algarve’s most picturesque towns. To the west, the coast develops into a wonderland of cliffs, caves and coves, the source of many postcard shots. Cruise further west in your campervan, and the coastline turns northwards, at the surfing hotspot of Sagres, becoming wilder and all the more dramatic.

Lost in the hills

Inland, the rolling hills facing the coast give way to fertile valleys and to the endless Serra mountains beyond. The Serra de Monchique, in the west, and the Serra de Caldeirão in the East produce some of the Algarve’s most memorable scenery and traditional villages abound. Still wondering what to do in Algarve? Campervan hire Faro is the ideal access point to endless opportunities to find out what’s behind the next bend in a rural paradise full of surprises. The higher elevation of the inland areas makes it easy to catch that perfect Algarve sunset. The key is to take it slow and enjoy the ride.

You can’t miss


Dare you travel the world’s first cross-border zip line? While you'll have to get out of the comfort zone, you'll have a unique chance to Zoom from Sanlúcar in Spain to Alcoutim in the Algarve, in a matter of seconds, high above the River Guadiana. Motorhome hire Faro is a great base to enjoy adrenaline pumping Algarve activities.

The Algarve is well suited for year-round camping and campervan hire due to a pleasant climate and an average of 300+ sunny days each year.

During the summer months of July and August, expect temperatures of around 29°C to 37°C. When it's this hot you’ll want to be near the coastline where you will find cooler breezes and fresher nights.

We prefer off-season campervan hire in Faro from October to June to fully enjoy uncrowded beaches, campsites and restaurants. The weather is mild while less traffic and open parking spaces right by the beach are a great bonus.

During the cooler months of December through March, you’ll camp in comfort as all of our Atlantic campervans and motorhomes are well insulated and come with auxiliary night heaters. Most of the South of Portugal rarely sees frost, making it Europe’s ideal winter vacation.

Below, we break down some additional costs to give you a more accurate estimate of the total cost of a campervan holiday in Algarve.

According to our internal data, the average distance travelled per trip in our campervan rentals in June 2022 was 809 km. This distance could easily be a trip from the Algarve to Lisbon, with return to Lisbon. This trip would consume approximately 1 full tank of fuel, costing €120 to fill up (this estimate was made on July 8, 2022). Take a look at this calculator that provides fuel prices, in real time, based on the kms you will travel.

It is impossible to deny that recently fuel has had a significant increase. Fortunately, our campervans are Euro 6 vans, one of the most economical ranges on the market today, their diesel consumption is approximately 7L per 100 km.

A pitch for two people and a campervan or motorhome with electrical hook-up costs from €15 to €25 per night. We’ve negotiated discounts of up to 10% with many of the best campsites around Faro. Be sure to read our blog post on Best campsites around Faro and just mention that you are in a Siesta van when booking a campsite to receive a discount.

Who doesn't like to eat!? Whether you like to stay at home or eat out, renting a campervan can provide benefits you might not expect, plus save you a lot!

Unlike most hotels, all of our campervans are fully equipped with everything you need to cook delicious meals wherever you are. This allows for greater flexibility and also gives you excellent value for money compared to traditional options.

There is nothing better than exploring Portugal by campervan and having the pleasure of enjoying a meal in an unforgettable place, while watching the stars. Can you imagine waking up to the sound of the waves and the feeling of the desert beaches of the west coast while enjoying a nice warm coffee and having local quality products? Buying local will certainly be more cost-effective than dining out.

If you prefer to try a local restaurant, you can expect to pay around €1-€2 for a coffee on the beach. A typical Portuguese lunch in the villages usually costs around €10-€15 per person, including wine!

Restaurants by the sea can be more expensive. Fresh fish caught the same day, for example in Arrifana, would cost €10-€20, not including drinks and desserts.
