Feeding and Hydration
Orange grove dining room
Our main dining room with its high exposed wooden ceiling, brings its own unique style to the Hotel. Looking over the orange grove, it offers the warmth of winter and the freshness of summer where you can choose to dine out on the patio and watch the peace of nature.
Holly Tree Pool bar
When the sun is setting and its time to relax by the pool and enjoy the cool evening our little pool bar nestled next to the English holly tree is the place to be. Something light and refreshing or an interesting mocktail might suit your fancy.
Located in the old hall, with its thick stone walls and heavy arches, you can indulge in a selection of hot and cold beverages throughout the day and night. It’s a chill place, a chat place and a cool down place.
Located in the Spa area, this small but well equipped gym is great when the weather is too hot or too cold to handle. With a mixture of running, rowing, steps, multigym and weights, its ready for action.
Situated over the old Santa Catarina tiled fruit drying area called an “eira” in Portuguese, you can enter the tranquillity of the day with a yoga session or use the area during the day to relax in the cool.
With a view of the sea, the mountains and the stars, our roof top terrace is a favourite spot. Tan there during the day, or meditate at sunset, join in for full-moon yoga, or just chill out at another mocktail session.
Main Pool and Dip Pool
Nothing better to cool down than a dip in the pool, then lie back on the sunbed and enjoy the best weather Europe can offer. If that’s too much then come and sit in the shade and chill out in the Moroccan dip pool. Don’t worry, we will keep them warm in the cooler months!
Steam Room (under construction)
Part of the old farm cottage building and in with the hammam, the adjacent steam room will get your skin clean, lungs revived and the whole body refreshed.
The Hotel is about relaxing. Mobile phones, laptops etc are discouraged and limited to specific areas. Now is the time to digital detox, take a good old fashioned book from our library, and indulge.
Head out of the gate, straight onto unpaved roads that lead all the way to the Sao Miguel Mountain. Walk, run or mountain bike for miles and miles at different skill levels. There will be organised walks and cycles.
The stunning Algarve beaches are 10 minutes down the road at Fuseta, or visit the islands off Olhao.
Leisure and Adventure
We can arrange golf and there are so many courses to choose from all with 30 minutes drive. For the more adventurous we can arrange kayaking, fly fishing, kitesurfing, horse riding and numerous other activities.
