Just away from the busy coast, in quiet back country hills! With stunning views over the beautiful coastline! Just perfect to explore each different direction of Algarve! Fiona & Robin are just great hosts were you feel at home from the very first minute! Lovely Rupert & Winnie are stealing the show daily! Breakfast is breath taking!!!!

I just spent a wonderful weekend here away from the "real world," and it was absolutely fabulous; just what I needed. Fiona and Robin are the friendliest of hosts, and so are their adorable puppies! I felt right at home and was able to spend my days relaxing and enjoying the pool and gorgeous scenery. Fiona's cooking is top notch,... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Winniehill, beautiful villa and pool and accommodation. Perfect location for exploring Eastern Algarve and amazing views towards Faro. Fiona and Robin were perfect hosts making us feel at home, especially having the dogs around. Enjoyed Sunday night 's chicken at the village restaurant with them. Fiona's breakfasts were amazing and the best muffins ever.... More

Once again we found this gem using Alistair Sawday. It is close to Faro - about 25 mins by car and has commanding views over the coast and hills nearby. The place is a delight, with 3 rooms and an excellent pool. We stayed in two, the rear with roof terrace and the ground floor fronting the pool and both... More

Spent 3 nights here with the in-laws and girlfriend in mid-September The b & b is so remote, really, really recommend you hire a car for your stay here. It's around 15-20 minutes from the airport. We arrived a little early but straight away Fiona and Robin were very welcoming. There knowledge of the surrounding area is second to none... More

My husband and I stayed for a week in May in this typical, lovingly restored farmhouse. It is an exceptional B&B, where everything is top quality; an immaculate good-sized bed- and bathroom and a cosy lounge reserved for guests. Fiona and Robin are wonderful hosts. Fiona is a true chef, spoiling her guests with carefully prepared most delicious breakfasts, everything... More
