There’s something about staying in the rolling countryside of the Algarve—far away from the relentless energy of the bigger coastal cities—that's totally transporting. This gorgeous country house tucked away in eastern Algarve is the ultimate hideaway. Close enough to charming coastal towns and the beach, it boasts a setting surrounded by acres of almond and olive orchards, giving it a most intimate atmosphere.

Husband-and-wife team Tim and Hallie Robinson moved from London to transform this rugged country estate into a sought-after destination. The result is a hotel with the charm and personal touches of a B&B and the high-tech, forward-thinking amenities of a luxury design property. The 10 spacious, light-bathed rooms are swathed in mix-and-match textures that add personal, homey touch, from the pony-skin area rugs and patterned upholstery to four-post wood beds and vintage-looking cabinets. Each of the rooms have relaxing outdoor gardens.

The public areas feature that same attention to design detail, making guests feel like they're staying at a fabulous friends’ very big house. The hand-picked flea market finds and the supple leather chairs and the unusual bursts of color here and there set a casual yet stylish mood. Things get particularly picturesque in the outside dining spaces with nothing but blue skies and acres of orchards in line of vision. A typical meal consists of fresh fish served with produce grown on-site and olive oil from the estate. If you do need to venture out, Tavira’s charming streets and shops and Algarve’s famous beaches are just minutes away by taxi.

Who Should Stay

Jetsetting couples or groups of friends looking for a unique take on the Algarve holiday. Seasoned travelers who can forego direct access to the beach for more intimate and sophisticated accommodations.
