What we like about this property

The traditional Algarvian farm dating back to 1811 has been lovingly restored and augmented with a beautiful outdoor pool and gardens. It offers a variety of restorative wellness breaks, but can also be booked for self-catering getaways.

Description

This 200-year-old collection of farmhouses is located in the countryside of the Golden Triangle near Faro, within walking distance of the town of Almancil. It was originally built for breeding horses, but has been given a striking makeover and its current incarnation is as a boutique health spa.  

At present, the lovely pool villa is available to rent – room by room in low season or in its entirety in the high season – three bedrooms plus a loft, sleeping eight guests. (The entire estate, which is made up of three buildings and can accommodate 12 guests, is available to rent only in the summer.)   

Each room overlooks the bougainvillea-drenched terraces, the pool and the herb gardens with their 100-year-old trees – as well as the sea in the distance. The property is extremely pet friendly, being home to a potbellied pig, a horse, geese, chickens, three dogs and a cat.  

ADDITIONAL FEATURES  

There is an outside bar, barbecue and kitchen. The property can be booked on a self-catering basis, or guests can book experience packages, with yoga, pilates and massage, or a fully-catered health and wellness break. There is a zen house where weekly yoga, pilates, and fit ball classes are held, and beauty treatments and massage can be booked. There is a beach volleyball court, a trampoline, a table tennis table and a sports field.  

The three bedrooms have single beds with high quality mattresses which can be zipped together to form king-sized beds. The three bathrooms have Grohe showers and Villeroy & Boch baths.  

AROUND  

The property is located in the Algarve’s affluent Golden Triangle, in the Vale d’Equas, the valley of the merry. The region is one of the most popular summer destinations for travelers in Europe, but the property is off the beaten track near the town of Almancil.  

The region is known for its beaches and golf, with over 25 top-class courses. It is also known for its pottery, and there is a working pottery center in Almancil.
