This little oasis of calm is just a short distance from Falesia nestled amid a few fields of grazing goats and kitchen garden plots. The sign for agri tourism says it all. Home grown local produce made to finger licking perfection! We have been there twice for lunch and it just gets better. The tapas selection is great. We particularly... More

The coffeshop is well worth the visit. We were taken here on a guided walk from our hotel and enjoyed it so much we paid a return visit at our own pace. To say I had one of the best sandwiches ever sounds as if I should get out more but the simple pork sarni was excellent. Just rustic bread,... More

A high end boutique hotel which has a very nice coffee shop attached open to non residents. Cakes are to be recommended but beware the scones they leave a bit to be desired...... But well worth a visit on a sleepy afternoon

Booked via Eliza Was Here and this is another great location. The appartment was very clean and the staff and owner really did a great effort to make you feel at home. The pool is very nice (no chlorine) . The restaurant has great tapas and plates. Nice breakfast. Some other tidbits: fast internet speed, good shower.

The breakfast ist diversified and very tasty, fresh and homemade things from the farm. You can enjoy dinner on the lovely terrace: you can order either delicious Tapas or warm dishes. Enjoy the several homemade tea sorts, which... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Quinta do Mel is small peace of countryside near Algarve's best beaches. With 10 rooms and 1 apartment, results from the recuperation of an old farmhouse respecting architecture and materials. Most of the products we serve are from our own production. Besides vegetables we produce strawberries and aromatic plants. At the Quinta there's also a Tea room / Restaurant, open to general public, where is possible to taste several traditional products and mediterranean recipes. At only 1,5 Km from Praia da Falésia, Quinta do Mel still preserves the countryside quietness and spirit. Close to everything, away from the crowd ! ... more   less
