Had a very relaxing holiday at Jon's. Great Place and Lovely Pool and in a great location close to the airport, only 20 minutes away. This is just what we needed to relax especially with no children around. It is very close to the local town, Sao Bras de Alportel where there are plenty of good restaurants, shops and café... More

"Good to be back after four years" First class Hospitality. Jon always exceeds your expectations nothing is too much trouble its like home from home only the weather better here. A car is important to get about, plenty of good restaurants in the area and very reasonably priced. Very close to local town with plenty of good shops. Spent evenings... More

What can I say? We came back again Hospitality was amazing especially so considering some difficult circumstances for Jon, he still ensured the guests were absolutely taken care of. The other guests were really friendly and we had a hoot in the evenings with them. Relaxing and a top place to stay

We had a lovely two-week holiday here in the first half of September 2012, booked almost at the last moment, and it was our first visit to Portugal and the Algarve. We stayed in Casa Plum. The situation is lovely, but you should consider renting a car as we did as it is pretty remote. Some others there used taxis... More

Only a short drive from Faro and Jon was more than happy to pick me up from the airport. As a single guy I was a bit worried about this holiday. How wrong can you be, after a tour of Quinta do Alercim, i felt so at home. This is a secluded location and full of natural beauty, the accomodation... More

Having never been to the Algarve or Portugal before, we couldn't have been more pleased with our choice of accommodation for what was a last-minute decision to escape from the disappointing UK summer weather for 9 days. Quinta do Alecrim is conveniently situated a short drive into the hills from Faro airport, but away from the main tourist hustle and... More

Annie and Ian have just returned from a wonderful holiday at Quinta do Alecrim. From the moment we arrived to the day we left we had the pleasure of naked sunbathing and swimming as Jon's guests. He made sure we had everything we needed but gave us all the space we wanted for a peaceful and serene naturist experience. As... More

Just a short but very enjoyable and relaxing visit. Jon is a fantastic host, he really looked after us! Didn't do the naturist thing but I'm sure other visitors would enjoy the privacy this beautiful place offers. The pool was so inviting in the heat, once in it was great - really warm. Will definitely return to this little haven.... More

Great relaxing holiday - loved it! Recommendations for eating out were all fine: try the Secret Garden in S Bras for a serious good chocolate mousse!

This was our first visit ever to a naturist resort. It was complete relaxation from the moment our host Jon (Resort Owner) picked us up from Faro Airport on Sunday to the moment we reluctantly left the following Sunday to return to the rodent race! We didnt know what to expect, but Jon could not have been nicer or more... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
I am Jon and have opened a resort for naturists in the Sunny Algarve, Portugal which caters exclusively for Adults ( sorry no children). You can choose from either Self Catering or Bed & Breakfast Holidays in one of our three apartments, this allows you to choose the holiday which meets your needs. We offer you the chance to relax in the rustic surroundings of the Algarve countryside. Our location a small village slightly East of Faro and only 20 minutes from the airport is a perfect setting for creating that special holiday. We offer a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere in which to unwind, if you wish you can take a 10 minute walk to the local bar, which, whilst being very Portuguese, is friendly and will not make a big dent in your wallet or you can wander the few metres from your apartment and join us for a drink in our new dining room/bar. Your holiday experience will allow you to unwind and recharge your batteries returning home refreshed and ready to face the rodent race. ... more   less
