The fastest is by plane. The flight to Faro takes about 3 hours, sometimes the outward or return flight is shorter due to the favorable wind direction. Various airlines fly to Faro, among others:

Transavia: flies from Eindhoven, Rotterdam and Amsterdam
Brussels Airlines: Flights from Zaventem (Brussels)

If you enjoy a long vacation, you should consider taking your own car. The most advantageous is that you have your own car at your disposal during your holiday stay.
