Fazenda Nova Country House
Reviewed 12 August 2017 via mobile

Spent 7 nights at this fabulous country house. Everything about it was great - from the arrival down a curving drive flanked by waving grasses to the friendly staff who were happy to share tips on beaches and restaurants to visit. We stayed in the terrace room - plenty of space and a huge walk in shower with Ren toiletries. The private terrace looked out over the countryside and two loungers were set with fresh towels everyday. The pool area and gardens are beautiful - the imaginative use of grasses, bamboo, olives etc made for lots of lovely relaxing areas.
We usually head out for dinner when on holiday, but the open air dining area and fantastic food had us staying in most nights. Pork with clams was a highlight! A small wine list - but everything we tried we really liked. The breakfasts were also great - buffet style but everything you'd want (bread, croissant, cereal, fruit, yoghurt... and those amazing Portuguese custard tarts). And finally, a word on the cool music that floated through the grounds. Old and new tracks that seemed to fit the mood perfectly!

One of the best places we've stayed !

Gorgeous boutique hotel surrounded by beautiful gardens with paths leading to semi-secluded alcoves. Take your pick from the swinging hammock, outdoor four-post beds or soft cushioned under tree sofas. You might prefer to lounge by the pool or listen to vinyls in the upstairs record room or to go for a cycle ride down country lanes...

The breakfasts are long and generous; the days on any of the gorgeous beaches stretch into the early evening... then head to Fabrica for seafood overlooking the lagoon or have a fish barbecue alongside the road in Fuseta...

Glorious...

Our family spent six nights there ending last week. We moved a lot around the Algarve -which is a really recommended destination, but we could have very well spent all the time in Fazenda Nova: wide rooms with private garden, swimming pool, a welcoming sitting room with plenty of books, magazines and even some 1000 music records!, a restaurant offering limited choices but nicely cooked, and a superb staff (thank you Marisa, Gabriela and Diego) -always 'invisible' but always there to help you. And such peace!!!
Really willing to come back.

From the moment we drove down the drive of Fazenda, we knew we were in for a special weekend. Greeted in the parking area by Gabrielle and shown to our lovely room with private garden. After a wonderful lunch we decided to relax by the pool which was empty as everyone else seemed to be out exploring. The food in the restaurant was excellent cooked for us by Paulo. The next day we were greeted by the owner Tim who gave us directions to a beautiful beach , where we spent the day. On returning we had a few Mojito's made for us by Diego, another of the excellent staff and watched the sunset. Merisse was always around if we needed anything as well.
We have booked to go back already. Cannot describe how much we enjoyed our stay and looking forward to returning

The hotel is a wonderful oasis of calm, easy to get to from Faro airport (so a long weekend is completely doable). As soon as we arrived we felt relaxed and at ease, there has obviously been a great deal of love put into the design of the hotel. Our room (7) was in the garden and had a peaceful terrace area, the bathroom was stocked with REN products too which is always a plus.

The pool is refreshing and was exactly what we needed as the temperature soared to 37 degrees on the day we arrived. Food is also great, grill night was a highlight and the wine from Duoro was spot on. We would recommend hiring a car and investigating all of the nearby beaches, Barril was a personal favourite, also get a cab in the evenings and explore Tavira, Olhao etc. Couldn't fault the recommendations for restaurants and beaches, plus Halley & Tim are lovely as were all of the staff. We'll be back.

Room Tip: Number 7 was great

We had a lovely break at the fazenda Nova. As you drove through the gates and up the drive it felt like you were entering another world - the first impression wasn't wrong! The property and grounds are just beautiful but its the people that make the place special. Everyone was lovely; welcoming, friendly and informal. We were told that the aim was for you to 'feel at home' - we really did.
This place is superbly unpretentious which is what we're after. So much better than a 5* hotel with no soul.

We visited for 4 nights in March and had a fantastic stay. The staff could not have been more helpful and the atmosphere was lovely - very laid back and relaxed. Our room was beautifully done and opened out on to the gardens. The swimming pool was very cold in March - but it did mean we had it to ourselves for an early morning swim! We ate in the hotel restaurant for 2 evenings and ate out for the other 2. The hotel staff made reservations for us and were full of tips about what to do. This is the eastern Algarve, so you are away from the big resorts - we absolutely loved the vast empty beaches.
A fantastic stay and I absolutely recommend the Fazenda Nova - it was great.
