Had a magical week at Fazenda Nova. Words cannot describe the level of hospitality owners Tim & Hallie bestowed on us. Everything about the place is perfect and the surrounding area has just about everything you could ever want from a holiday. If you're a design fiend or a petanque enthusiast then you are in the right place. Come to... More

My husband and I spent 5 nights relaxing at Fazenda Nova. We arrived from Faro airport (about 25 minutes’ drive) and following the directions Hallie had sent me, we found the property quite easily. The first thing you see are the beautiful gardens and stepping through the door we were taken under the wing of Gabriella who promptly served a... More

Fazenda Nova was brimming with warmth and style. Hallie and Tim have created a totally inspiring, relaxing and beautiful space that provided us with the retreat we needed. Their attention to detail is remarkable and everything has been considered. It was nourishing on all levels. All the staff were fantastic and both my husband and I had a wonderful massage... More

The drive from Lisbon to Tavira is easy - finding Fazenda Nova once you are in the vicinity is a little less easy - but that's part of what makes it special. Tucked away amidst country streets just a few minutes from a spectrum of gorgeous beaches, you know you've hit something special when you pull in through the front... More

Fazenda Nova is a beautiful design hotel - the owners Tim and Hallie have a real feel for design which is evident in the space. Our room (room 6, a garden room) was huge, beautifully appointed and we had a private garden we could sit out in. We thought the food was lovely - breakfast is served every day and... More

We have just returned from our 2nd visit to Fazenda Nova....and again it was perfect.

Staff, Food, Wine, Rooms and other Spaces all carefully thought out and executed with taste, style and professionalism. Caution...if you play Tim at Petanca be... More

It ticks all the boxes if your looking for a place to relax and unwind, it certainly provides a very tranquil environment with luxury touches. Our room was beautifully decorated in keeping with the charm of the place but with a modern new four poster bed (very comfortable) we had a wonderful walk in shower en-suite bathroom and the private...

Fazenda nova is a lovely place, Tim and Hallie have done an amazing job on renovating the farmhouse and the grounds around it. The decor is beautiful and they have managed to create an atmosphere where you feel immediately at home and there are so many interesting things to look at! The rooms are beautiful, with huge bathrooms and super... More

It is with heavy heart that I write this short review in the clear knowledge that it may well lead to more visitors to Fazenda Nova, and so means us having to share this little slice of heaven with others on later visits. ‘Perfection’ is an all too often used term but in this case it is an understatement.

The only downside of a stay at Fazenda Nova is leaving. Everything is perfect from Tim and Hallie's (and their lovely staff) knowledge of the area, the comfort and style of the rooms, the food, the beautiful grounds, and the overall feeling of staying in a good friend's home who knows when to leave you alone and when to check...
