Hotel Review

A 30 minute drive from Faro airport, through endless cork groves and white-washed towns with storks nesting on chimneys, will bring you to this beautiful old farmhouse. It has been lovingly converted by Flemish owners Frank and Veronique who gave up the hurly-burly of the banking world for the tranquillity of Algarvian life.

New this year (2020) are two rooms with en-suite bathrooms which have been converted from the old stables They join the existing five suites which are spread out in the farmhouse, two of which are family rooms large enough to accommodate two adults and two children. Each of them comes with a private terrace and a hammock or outside seating to enjoy the typical blue skies of the Algarve. Interiors are minimalist and draw on local craftsmen and materials to give a real sense of place. Floors come in the traditional Santa Caterina rust-red tiles. Exteriors are traditional: white-washed walls, topped by terracotta tiles and the typically decorative Moorish chimney.

There are lovely gardens in which you'll find a black mosaic swimming pool. There is an honesty bar on hand and light meals of salads and snacks are provided in the high season.

Farmhouse of the Palms

This 200-year-old whitewashed farmhouse has been beautifully restored by Flemish owners Frank and Veronique, who have carved five spacious bedrooms out of the sun-dappled stone interiors, each with their own private terrace. A swimming pool lies in the gardens and hammocks swing from the trees.
