Absolutely agree with all what has been written. The hotel is located not far from an amazing beach, Amado, where even if you are not into surfing, you can easily spent the whole day. A specil word about the friendly staff – you guys were really helpful – thank you!

Could not be faulted, just what we were looking for for our honeymoon, informal, relaxed and friendly. Felt like a home from home can't recommend this place enough, really clean, just spot on, 100% thumbs up

Room Tip: We had a view of the pool which was ideal

We've just arrived back from an 11 night stay at Casa Fajara which was truly amazing.

The hotel is beautiful, tucked back from the small town of Carrapateira in amongst stunning landscape. The rooms are well decked out with rustic furniture, a TV and we had a small kitchenette area and brilliant balcony. The pool is great and sheltered from the breeze that was present on a few of the days we stayed. They also have a lounge room which has a communal TV, big leather sofas and a small honesty bar.

The staff were amazing. Jonny was great from the minute we arrived at 2.30am!!! Everyone made us feel really welcome and we even joined one of Cheyne's yoga classes down on Amado beach.

We spent the whole stay surfing between Amado and Arrifana beach. Just a warning, if you visit Arrifana beach don't park down the winding track after June 1st as the police clamp any non resident vehicle. We found this out the hard way! Also if you drive the track between Bodeira and Amado, which had 2 restaurants on it, be careful of potholes! We got 2 flat tyres that night!

Over all a wonderful holiday that was super relaxing in beautiful hotel.

Just returned from a wonderful stay at Casa Fajara with friends and family to celebrate a birthday. The hotel is absolutely lovely, stylishly rustic with individually designed bedrooms of lovely quality.
Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff and Johnny was just wonderful.
Can't wait to return and enjoy the beautiful surroundings and lovely walks.
If you're looking for a peaceful break in a lovely hotel off the beaten track then Casa Fajara is the place to go.

Room Tip: Every room is lovely.

We have not put a review on trip advisor before but this was such a lovely place we feel we must. 28 of us have just spent 4 nights at Casa Fajara to celebrate the 50th birthday of one of the party. The whole place is lovely, set in a rural location but only 10 minutes walk into the village. There is a beach 10 minutes drive away with a surf school and hire shop for wet suits, surf boards, body boards etc. The rooms are all different, tastefully furnished and lots with their own balconies and lovely views. The good sized swimming pool was cold (it was April!) but was ok after a couple of lengths and there are lovely walks in the area. We had a yoga class and the holistic massage was fantastic! Johny the manager was wonderful as were all the staff, nothing was too much trouble and he put up with our dancing, singing and staying up late. There were fires in the lounges which made them the perfect places to relax. We ate in the hotel every night and by far the best was the fish evening - the selection of seafood served throughout the evening was delicious.

great location, easy access (1.5hr) from Faro and they can arrange car hire for you; just the most lovely combination of delicious food, exceptionally good service and like being in a home away from home (borrow the beach towels to go surfing... chill on a poolside lounger with our fluffy blanket around you enjoying the winter sun while you read one of the many books available)... rustic, super comfy (roaring winter fire if required) and perfect for relaxing.

Just finished staying at Casa Fajara for three nights to take part in their Yoga retreat. This is a fantastic gem of a place to find in a beautiful setting! The hotel has been renovated and is just beautiful with all the decorations. Not too fancy, but very nice and super clean and comfortable and quaint to meet the other guests. The staff (Stephanie, Johnny and Diana) are all very professional and go out of their way to assist you!
The food was delicious with homemade cooking and fresh fruit and delicious breakfasts! I am already hoping to come back for another retreat in the future. You can walk into the small and quiet town of Carrapateira and there are two beaches in proximity. A breathtaking place to be and relax!! I even got to try boogie boarding at the Amaldo beach!!
