Fazenda Nova has been completely renovated to a high standard while keeping plenty of the traditional features that Portuguese country houses were famed for and, thanks to its old use as a farm, the gardens are planted with fruits, herbs while now brimming with new wildflowers during the season.
Two brand new, six bedrooms luxury Algarve villas located just moments from Ponta da Piedade, one of the most famous and striking coastal cliffs in the Algarve is Lux Mare, a beautifully designed twin of villas created by a local architect.
The tranquillity of Fazenda is what really amazed me, with plenty of secluded and shaded corners in the gardens it had a real romantic vibe and wasn’t somewhere I would want to be on my own. There is a choice of different rooms and suites, with standard facilities such as a pool complimented by unique picks such as a Vinyl library and small, still working farm. The restaurant serves up super fresh home-cooked food, and the 200-year-old bread oven adds a nice touch to breakfast dining on the terrace.

1. Houseboats on the Ria Formosa

I’ve been visiting the Algarve since I was a toddler and what once felt like a second home is now my first home, which has allowed me plenty of time to explore both the hidden gems of the Algarve and discover some of its more unusual accommodation along the way.
Villa Carlota
The Amado surf camp has a couple of locations along the rugged, wild west coast of the Algarve, and if you are looking to get out on the water and learn to surf while staying in the Algarve, this is a great bet.
Villa Carlota is another gem from the Spring Villas collection and offers some excellent views over a real favourite of mine, Silves, especially while enjoying a leisurely breakfast on the terrace.
