"New Favourite place in Portugal"
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.
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.
"Absolute bliss, a hidden treasure"
I've travelled a lot, from Bali to Mauritius, from NY to Lima and Sao Paolo to Napels.... you name it. But for the first time ever, I feel the need to write a review. My experience at Fazenda Nova was fantastic..... The peace, the beauty of the surroundings, the simply delicious food, the eye for detail, the 'home away from home' vibe.... everything was sublime. The staff was excellent, not intrusive but perfectly aware of you presence and giving superbe service when needed and also advice on what to see in the area. Truly one of a kind... Fazenda Nova is one of my all time favourites and we will surely be back.
