Here is yet again a great new boutique hotel in Algarve, Portugal.

The region is known for the historic town of Tavira and Cacela Velha, a picturesque clifftop fishing village. And there are deserted beaches that are its best-kept secret.

This small farmhouse, once owned by the Silva Gomes family, was built in 1920 as a wedding present to the owners’ only daughter and it remained a working farm until 1970. It’s now been renovated and turned into a 6 rooms hotel.

On the shady terrace next to the farmhouse, guests can enjoy a delicious, generous breakfast, or take other light meals by the plunge pool (heated in winter).

I also like the idea that you could rent it as a whole unit in the winter months. It sure would make for a special Christmas atmosphere with a group of friends or your family.

So what do you think of this place? Do you see yourself going there?
