If you enjoy sanitized chain hotels ,Capela is not for you! This fifteenth century house is unique in every way . Very difficult to describe the décor or style ,we have never previously witnessed anything like it {in a very impressive way}. The accommodation is in a more modern building at the rear of the property and the rooms are... More

I recently hosted my wedding at this venue and it was made much easier by having accommodation for all of my guests. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Joao and his team are incredibly helpful and will go out of their way to sort out any requests or needs. The hotel is very easy to find opposite Aldi in Alcantarilha... More

This hotel is a hidden gem. It is a tranquil oasis in an absolutely awful tourist area. There are only 30 rooms which makes for a really relaxing, quiet vacation. The hotel is beautiful, set in an olive grove with lovely landscaping and pool. It is a traditional old Portuguese house that has been spectacularly renovated. The rooms are new... More

This hotel is fantastic and the customer service first class. Situated in an oasis of peace and calm midst the throbbing Algarve, it was a delight to find such a wonderful place to stay. The rooms were clean and spacious, the pool was warm and inviting, and the breakfast was fresh and delicious. Juan and Sarah, thank you for making... More

We visited the hotel in October and were the only guests so we enjoyed the peace and quiet of a wonderful setting with beautiful olive groves. A welcome break from the urban coastline a few kilometres away. The main building is full of charm but the hotel rooms are in modern buildings and are functional. The owner was extremely helpful...

This hotel is a great place to stay. The setting of the rooms is amongst olive trees through which the early morning sun comes through to light the patio in front of your ground floor room. The grounds are delightful, a lovely pool and areas to relax in. The main building houses many interesting antiques and other objects d'art. The... More

We had a lovely time at Capela Das Artes (Sept 2011). Host Oscar is very friendly, super helpful and made us feel so welcome. The property is a very appealing renovated manor house with purpose built guest accomodation in the gardens. Walled gardens to give secluded feel. Very quiet, close to local ameneties, easily accessed from the main road and... More

We spent another wonderfully relaxing week here with two of our children and we will be back. The pool is lovely, the bedrooms and bathrooms are bright, simple and beautifully clean (wi fi available) the gardens and olive groves well tended. The host Oscar could not be more helpful- his fresh orange juice at breakfast was a winner and he... More

Having known the Capela Das Artes for many years through travelling extensively in the Algarve, it was a natural choice for our wedding in September 2010. Oscar is your host and makes you feel like you are the only guests in his hotel - whether he's fully booked or nearly empty. 56 of our friends flew out to join us... More
