    Like a traditional finca yet modern and trendy. Just set apart from more built up areas with small woodpeckers and bee eaters. I loved the tinkle tinkle of bells whenever the goat herd was grazing nearby. The little swimming pool in the garden part shaded by attractive trees was so relaxing. Beach and little local shops and pine tree walks on the sea cliffs just 15 minutes walk away.

Set in a peaceful, rural location with lovely gardens and small but adequate pool. The staff are friendly and well informed. Breakfast was amazing and dinner though small in choice, changes every evening and is fresh and home made.

    The kitchen needs an electric kettle - we boiled the water for our tea in a saucepan.

    We stayed in the upstairs apartment which is very spacious and comfortable with plenty of storage/wardrobe space. There is underfloor heating in the bathroom which was great for us as the weather was wet and windy during our stay. The staff and service are excellent; nothing is too much trouble and breakfast can be taken any time up until 1pm. Breakfast is plentiful and you are offered more of everything if you would like it. The scrambled eggs are done to a special method/recipe - delicious! Each evening you have delivered to your room herbal tea in a vacuum flask (a different tea each day) with homemade cookies - complimentary, a very nice touch.

    The shower door did not close properly, so the floor was getting a bit flooded after taking the shower. Not too much of a problem though, especially if you're trying to careful.

    A very quiet location. Good if you want to relax and get away from noisy city. Probably the best breakfast I've ever had in any hotel - every day something new :) Nice swimming pool surrounded by grass. Every day at 6 pm they bring you tea into the room (every day new kind) and cookies. Would totally recommend it for romantic getaways.

We parked the car and we just used our bikes. It was easy to go to the beach and get out riding a bike. Don't miss Barranco das Belharucas beach. And Sao Rafael beach. Amazing view. The best chocolate cake ever. If I were you I would go to the Bird´s observatory, just near the hotel. I saw the best beautiful bird I have already seen in my life.

Make sure to have EXTRA space in your luggage to carry some jams, teas and honey home with you - they are really awesome. Nice staff, lovely owner, very friendly and helpful people. Beautiful beach is only 5 min drive away. Plenty of jogging paths through the beautiful orchards. First time when traveling we were ready to just stay on the premises and enjoy the teas and food all day long instead of exploring the area. Very relaxing and health-friendly experience. Much recommended. Breakfasts were suuuper... :)
