Mercedes Country House is a charming hotel whose mission is to provide its guests high quality services. We are located in the Algarve Barrocal (between the sea and the mountains), in the municipality of Faro. Our guests are the reason for our existence and we are prepared to meet all your wishes. We want to turn your stay into a memorable experience and hope that you leave wanting to return soon. The plot where Mercedes Country House is located was acquired in 2015 and has about 11,500 m2. The plot had a typical house from the Barrocal which was recovered and expanded. The construction was finished in June 2017. We were extremely careful with the use of typical Barrocal materials, as we believe in preserving traditional architecture, without neglecting the comfort of our guests. We planted various fruit trees that allow us to be self-sufficient. We also planted several vegetables, which we use in meals served in the restaurant. All of our fruits and vegetables are organic.

Absolutely amazing place! The house is located in the most beautiful area just outside Faro and very close to the aiport, but far away from noise and people. The rooms are very large and clean and everything is clearly very new and modern. Every room also has a small private garden, which is perfect to enjoy the great Algarve weather. Outside there is a large pool, and given the small number of rooms at the hotel, it is never crowded. As the hotel is placed outside the city, it is necessary to drive to get to the city or the beach, but both are very short drives away. We had a car for most of our stay, but it is also very east and cheap to get around with Uber.

The breakfast is really amazing and freshly made from local ingredients. Every morning, we had freshly squeezed orange juice from locally grown oranges, as well as one of the many egg dished made from fresh eggs. As we were there during the Covid pandemic, there was no buffet, but we just ordered whatever we wanted the night before, and the breakfast was brought to us, anywhere we wanted, including in the room.

Some nights we had dinner in the city and for others we ate at the hotel. The dinner menu changes every evening, but is always comprised of a big home made Portuguese meal. We were never disappointed. And the wine selection is really good too, coming from the impressive wine cellar of Miguel, the owner.

And Miguel, the owner, was probably the best part of our stay. He was there to greet us, when we arrived and was always there for anything we needed. He even prepares the dinners himself. On our last night, we shared a bottle of Port and he showed his wine collection. His hospitality is really second to none. Well maybe second to his dog Paco (or public relations manager, as Miguel called him).

So if you are thinking about booking it, stop thinking! I really cannot recommend this place enough.

I cannot recommend Mercedes Country House enough. Our daughter (16months) loved the tropical fruit garden, chickens down the back and pool in equal measure. Bountiful breakfasts every day. Pool is divine. Location great if you have a car. Exceptional food at the proprietary, and excellent options for traditional lunch / dinner close by. Exert care taken to ensure a safe stay in the context of Covid. We couldn’t have asked for more.

If you're looking after a hotel room in a bustling place... then you're wrong with this location.
This is an amazing countryside guest house, between BnB and boutique hotel. Most probably a boutique BnB !!
Everything fantastic from arrival through a small unsealed yet absolutely drivable path, to the spacious house and rooms, to the customer focused personal.
Swimming pool, garden, amazing food and drinks will make you feel relaxed and pampered in less time than you needed to read this review.
Stayed 2 nights, left reluctantly.

We loved our stay in this lovely small hotel. We booked because they also have a restaurant. We had big breakfast, tasty dinners and very good wine. Everything was delicious and the cakes were excellent! Overall, some of the best food we had in our stay in Portugal.

The villa has a big garden with a pool and we would love to come back in the summer.

Stylish accomodation surrounded by the green outside the crowdy areas. It features free car parking for the guest, a good restaurant and big pool. The breakfast is not a huge but offers you only quality ingredients that will make you looking for it day by day.
The owner and the emplyees have been very friendly and kind. He is also a good wine tester and left us try one of the best wine of Algarve and that was very kind of him.
The structure is pet friendly and very clean in every corner. It that dreamy house everyone would love to own! Great value for the rapport quality/price 🙌🏻

We are well versed in the Algarve and find it really difficult to find an authentic, classy place to stay when we have to be in the area - but we finally found it in Mercedes Country House. It’s far enough from the tourist craziness of the algarve towns, but close enough to day trip to Tavira, Faro, Lagos, Silves etc. It’s a good base for exploring the area.

The house really does have a country feel set in orchards, with a roof top deck and a swimming pool/ lounger area.

The rooms are very spacious, the air con is amazing, tv has enough English channels (background noise) and the shower was great. There are tea and coffee facilities in the room, we called to ask for milk and it was brought promptly. The coffee station was not restocked though / minor issue but would have been nice.

There is seating outside on the garden.

Breakfast started at 9 which was quite refreshing for us to sleep in (I could imagine annoying if you have to leave early though). The usual spread, plus they made us omelettes and scrambled eggs as per request.

Our only observation was that noise travelled easily in the house, and that there was little privacy when sitting outside the room - the chairs are on top of the room next door, which was a little cozy for our liking.

We would definitely stay here again. We would have loved to try Miguel’s cooking but the circumstances did not allow.

We were so so lucky to stay at Mercedes Country House, and to meet Miguel and his family. We were only there for one night unfortunately but even a small amount of time felt like a proper holiday at Mercedes. Just driving inside the gates was calming, the entrance/reception is immaculate, the room was spacious and clean with a huge and comfy bed, and the outdoor area from the room was totally zen.

Miguel has fruit and veges growing at the house, all organic, which are used in the dishes they prepare each night and morning for guests. We had a fresh salad to start, then grilled pork as a main (delicious) and a berry cheesecake made by Miguel's wife for dessert. We were also treated to a local liqueur, made from ginger, lemon and cinnamon, which was one of the nicest drinks I've ever had! They also have a pug and everyone loves pugs.

We wish we could have stayed longer but we will return for sure, and we'll be sharing it with all our friends and family. I would absolutely recommend this as a place to stay on any Portugal trip.

There are properties that take your breath away; there are properties where the service is great; there are properties that are so comfortable you feel like you're at home; and there are properties with memorable meals: Mercedes Country House is all of the above and more. It is a family run, small hotel that is beautifully appointed and architecturally gorgeous. The rooms are large, the pool is beautiful and inviting, the surrounding orchards are lovely, and the owners are there to attend to your every need. It's also a good value. I cannot wait to return.

This is the kind of place you don't want anyone else to discover because you want it all to yourself! Amazing place. From start to finish. The beautiful rooms, the setting, the staff, the breakfast. Top class. A boutique experience from start to finish and fantastic value. We wish we had stayed longer!

We travelled with our 6 month old and it was ideal. The hotel provided a cot and baby bath and a highchair for meal times. What was an added bonus was that we could have dinner in the restaurant a few steps from our room while using a baby monitor. Peace and quiet.....it was perfect.

Okay, so it is a very well-hidden gem. In the middle of the countryside, this 9 bedroom family run hotel is a delight. And ideal for these COVID times. Rooms are large (bathroom on the small side), ours opened out onto a small private garden. The hosts were absolutely wonderful, always ready to accommodate our requests. A forgotten T-shirt was promptly posted to our home address.
Breakfast was ordered the day before, using a link to a Google form provided upon booking. Orange juice is freshly squeezed and fruit varied daily, as well as homemade cakes are baked every day, besides the usual breakfast selection.
Paco is the mascot - a charming pug who wanders around in the mornings. This is a pet friendly hotel.
Lovely pool and large garden. Very quiet for a restful holiday. There is a charger for electric cars.
If you are looking for peace and quiet and you don’t mind having to drive 10-15 minutes to get to the beach, do book a stay here. We will definitely be going back.

Swap to English Binsoir, nous avons un bus qui va à Faro. Cependant, nous recommandons d'avoir une voiture parce que Mercedes Country House est situé dans la campagne à 15 minutes du centre-ville de Faro. Cordialement
