Mediterranean at its best!


A breakfast buffet awaits you each morning with a range of freshly-baked breads, traditional portuguese pastries, fresh orange juice, traditional handmade cheeses and the best quality cured meats, along with newly laid eggs from our neighbors hens, cooked to your liking.

Breakfast is served on a panoramic terrace overlooking the valley from 9.00 to 10:30 a.m. If you like to laze in your bed or wake up very early in the morning for a walk, we offer the room service “Breakfast in Bed” for a small extra, so that you can enjoy your breakfast from 7:30 to 12:00 a.m., served on your private terrace.

Our Selection of wines

Portugal offers a wide range of excellent wines. From the light, refreshing and fruity whites of the north west of Portugal known as “Vinho Verde”, to the light-bodied, tangy and fruity reds from the vineyards along Portugal’ windy Atlantic coast. Our wine list is completed by italian, french and argentine wines that perfectly pair the fish and meet from the Algarve. If you are a wine lover, there are two vineyards very close to our property that offer a guided tour and excellent wine tasting experience.
