This is a great place to stop off on your way somewhere. We spent about an hour here and you probably wouldn’t need much more than that. The building and grounds are beautiful and really relaxing to walk around. Uber’s from Faro to here are...More

Visiting with friends, having drinks cannot be better. The sitting areas are quiet and palatial. The rooms are inviting. The view is fantastic. Drinks and appetizers are served in these palatial rooms or sit the well manicured gardens.

This beautiful historic building is now a hotel but still open to visitors. It is a magnificent villa set on a number of terraces each offering a fantastic view.

This is in a nice small village near Faro. Gardens are green compared to a lot of the surrounding area. Roman ruins close by.

It is fabulous that you can look around this beautiful building and gardens even though you are not staying in the hotel. We enjoyed our drinks on the sunny terrace with lovely views. Staff very friendly, though service was a little slow.
