About this listing

The Chapel Suite is an amazing room with a vaulted ceiling, a kitchenette and a romantic bathroom in Moorish style with bath and shower. Big Indian doors open onto a private terrace and the inner garden with vegetable and herb gardens.

The space

You´ll be staying at Quinta Alfarrobeira, an inspiring estate of 6ha, 4 km from the lively fishermen’s town of Lagos and 1,5 km from the lagoons and the white, sandy beach of Meia Praia bay. As the Quinta is situated on a hill it has wonderful views all-around of the surrounding country side with its olive, fig and almond trees. The Quinta that breaths tranquillity offers a lot of space and privacy to its guests. There are several accommodation units that have been lovingly built and restored with an eye for detail. Each unit has its own character and all units are connected through an inner garden with terraces, paths, old olive trees, herb and vegetable gardens and fruit trees. The traditional bread oven in the garden will be occasionally lit for a pizza night. You can dream away in one of the hammocks or take a dive in the big swimming pool. For years guests have been enjoying the peace, the beauty and magic of this very special place.

Guest access

Besides the Chapel Suite there is one other room, two guest houses and a loft apartment. Guests can freely wander around, use the pool day and night, use the various barbecues and the bread oven, pick fruit, herbs and vegetables in the various gardens and orchards. There is ample parking space.

Interaction with guests

The place is run by us, Theo, Inge and our sons, in an organic, ‘take us as you find us’ kind of way. All units are self catering. Every once in a while we light the bread oven and organize a pizza night. We are available when necessary, in general contacts are casual. Guest are welcome to help us feed the animals, find eggs or pick some vegetables. In all units you´ll find detailed information on where to eat, where to shop, what to see, to do etc.

Other things to note

The Quinta is run in a sustainable manner. We use renewable energy sources for hot water, cooking and central heating. A solar tracking system produces electricity, rainwater is collected, we recycle authentic building materials of architectural value, and, whenever possible, we use natural materials in the developing processes. We use ecologically friendly cleaning products and recycle waste materials in order to create the lowest environmental impact possible.

This place is magical !!! We stayed here for four nights and only left the quinta once to do some shopping in the nearby Odiaxere village (you can walk there in 20 mins). The surroundings are beautiful and the pool really big ! Atmosphere in the whole place is healing, calm, eco-friendly. You will fall asleep by the pool under the big carob tree and have amazing dreams. All the other guests were very respectful and we felt like we found our magical retreat away from the main tourist noise in Lagos town. We were lucky to come on a Friday when bakers used the outdoor bread oven and we helped bake some beautiful bread :) Inge made us feel very welcome, she was there when needed but at the same time left us to enjoy our privacy. We absolutely loved our stay here and hope to come back !

In der touristisch stark ausgebauten Region rund um Lagos ist die Quinta da Alfarrobeira eine wahre Oase: mitten im Grünen fühlt man sich fernab von der Zivilisation, die Unterkünfte und der Garten sind wunderschön angelegt und gestaltet. Gute Lage um den westlichen Teil der Algarve zu erkunden. Inge und ihre Familie sind tolle Gastgeber, die gemeinsame Pizza Night war ein Highlight des Urlaubs. Und es war wundervoll morgens im Garten Yoga zu machen - danke für die Yogamatte, Inge :-) Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und kommen wieder!
