I was at Naturarte for Easter 2013. It is a wonderful resort, surrounded by cork tree farms and hills. The hotel has excellent accommodation, a very cozy living area and swimming pool. The orchard is just beautiful. Everything is cooked from scratch, including the traditional Portuguese Easter bread; oranges, limes, lemons and herbs are grown there. Mil Fontes (the most beautiful town by the sea in Portugal in my opinion) is 40 minutes away by bicycle and 10 minutes by car. I will never go to the Algarve again.
