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.
"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.
