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

We recently spent 1 night here, and could easily have stayed longer. The accommodation in a lovely villa was superb, and the hospitality was excellent. Fiona is a first class chef, and her dinner was delicious. Breakfast next morning on the terrace by the pool was a delight, and we were happy to linger in order to take full advantage... More

I have been just one night in Winniehill B&B, during my stay in Faro with some friends and I regret to have been stayed there for so short time. Indeed, it has been amazing!

An excellent b&b on a hill side about 20 mins from Faro airport, which I would recommend to anyone wanting a quiet place but convenient for a number of picturesque Algarve towns and beaches. Fiona and Robin make great hosts. Breakfasts were of a very high quality, with fresh home made bread and muffins each day. The bedrooms were of... More
