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

I totally recommend Winniehill to anyone looking for a guenuine experience away from the touristic and crowded places. Fiona and Robin are passionate - the most lovely hosts ever - and will make their best so you feel home. More concretely, Winnihill is about a charming and very well decorated villa, with a stunning view, and also with very clean... 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

A great clean pool with lots of cozy sunlounger. Attention to details makes Winniehill extra special. At the end of our Portugal roadtrip we wanted to come back, but unfortunately it was fully booked (no... 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! The owners have been really kind and welcomed us in a perfect way, giving all the info we need about the area. The day after they... More
