We spent a most relaxing night here, the only guests in the place and outnumbered by the staff. There are 10 double rooms, but it was November and not many tourists about. In a quiet location just outside of Carrapateira, there is a decent sized outdoor pool and large gardens. It would be lovely to hire the whole place for a group of friends in summer. It has recently been refurbished and underfloor heating has been installed in the bedrooms, so it is equally comfortable in the winter. In the evening, eucalyptus log fires were lit in the 2 downstairs sitting rooms and we couldn't have been cosier. There were even videos and DVDs we could have watched, had we had the inclination, and a selection of books to borrow. Free wi-fi too.
Our room and bathroom were furnished and decorated to a very high standard. The staff were very helpful and friendly, nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was excellent and, although there is no restaurant on site, there is one (Cabrita) at the junction with the road about 10 minutes walk back down a smooth but unmetalled track.
This was one of the more expensive places we stayed on a recent 10 day trip round the Algarve and Alentejo at €85, but worth it.
