“A 19th-century house set amongst olives, almonds and pomegranate trees has been converted by a British couple into a contemporary chic haven of 15 rooms, just near the lovely town of Tavira in the Eastern Algarve.”

Hotel Review

Light streams through Fazenda Nova and the lush gardens filled with lavender and rosemary and trees heavy with fruit press against its walls. Interiors mix varnished concrete with local driftwood and the region’s eucalyptus wood. Shutters come in sage-green, furniture and beds are Balinese in style with bathrooms with under floor heating, luxurious rain showers and REN amenities.

Food draws on the garden produce and local markets to deliver a light, contemporary, take on Algarvian cuisine. In a dining room which is adorned by an African feather headdress but which moves outside to a shaded corner of the garden in summer, expect dishes such as chicken piri-piri, or sea bass on a bed of chick peas and sweet potatoes after a salad of feta cheese and watermelon. Do try their olive oil which is their own production and make sure to explore the excellent wine list.

Outside a swimming pool is surrounded by large day beds. Olhão, 20 minutes away, is famed for its fish and vegetable market and its sunsets and Tavira, one of the loveliest towns in the Algarve is a 15 minute drive away and brims with Roman remains and some beautiful churches.
