FARMHOUSE OF THE PALMS
The “Farmhouse of the Palms” Bed & Breakfast is run by 2 Flemish people, Frank and Veronique. After years of living busy lives, they decided to build a life without stress, less focus on materialism, in order to learn to enjoy the simplicity, tranquility and the outdoors. The Portuguese Algarve region had it all, and they wanted to share it with their guests.
At Farmhouse of the Palms, guests can enjoy the peace and quiet. Situated on a hill named “Cerro do Botelho” and surrounded by a stunning garden, this 200-year-old ‘monte’ (farmhouse) features a total of 5 rooms. The area offers stunning views over the area, including the nearby city of São Brás de Alportel. The air is still pure and clean. The B&B is away from the tourist crowds and allows you to discover the authentic Algarve region, with its little villages where life is every bit as easygoing as it was 50 years ago. And still, Faro and the airport are only 20 minutes away.
The rooms have been stylishly renovated, using natural stone and wood, with white being the primary colour. The rooms have all been created deliberately spaciously. The chosen interior decoration gives them a certain sober tranquility. The rooms offer all modern conveniences, such as satellite television, Wi-Fi, air conditioning, Bluetooth speakers and an espresso machine.
Farmhouse of the Palms also has a number of common areas, a splendid garden with a wide variety of fruit trees and tropical plants, a large outdoor swimming pool in black mosaic and delightful spots to sit back and relax. In short, privacy and tranquility are guaranteed.
Children are more than welcome. Children under 3 years old stay for free, and a travel cot is available for free as well. Unfortunately, due to its location, our B&B is not quite as suited for people with disabilities.
HISTORIC BEAUTY, SERENITY AND SPACE
Farmhouse of the Palms is a unique Bed & Breakfast, situated in Algarve. The building itself is a 200-year-old traditional ‘monte’, with many of its original features (‘monte’ is an old Portuguese word meaning farmhouse). A lot of love has been put into restoring our ‘monte’. The result is a stylish B&B with 5 different rooms, each with its own private terrace.
Three of the rooms are suitable for 1 or 2 people, and the other two are suitable for up to 4 people.
In addition to the stunning garden, the large and beautiful outdoor swimming pool in black mosaic, various terraces, hammock, sun beds and lounge chairs, there are various common areas. Everyone is sure to find their own favourite spot. Farmhouse of the Palms offers a small lunch menu featuring salads and light snacks (July/August only), as well as an “honesty bar” where you can enjoy a refreshing drink.
Our Bed & Breakfast is situated at the top of the Cerro do Botelho hill, away from the tourist crowds while still being conveniently close to everything. From the terraces you can enjoy the many stunning views over the valley, as well as the town of São Brás de Alportel, nicknamed “terra de bons aires”, the land of good air. As the name suggests, the air is exceptionally pure and clean, as is the water. The area perfectly lends itself to a trip to Faro, Loulé or Tavira, a bike ride or a walk, a lovely day at the beach, or a round of golf. São Brás de Alportel used to be the world’s foremost cork town, so we highly recommend paying a visit to the local cork factory.
Because of our location, it is advisable to rent a car.
