Places To Stay – Fazenda Nova, Tavira

"fazenda nova algarve"The eastern Algarve has seen a surge in popularity in recent years with many people choosing to explore an undiscovered side of the Algarve and it is boutique hotels such as the newly renovated Fazenda Nova that are helping to really put the eastern Algarve on the map.

From the moment you draw up to Fazenda Nova you can already feel the very special atmosphere that surrounds the place and a sense of history meeting with the modern.

Although the hotel is located near to Tavira it is actually in the countryside and not right on the coast which gives it a more traditional feel.  The hotel itself is between Moncarapacho and Tavira in the tiny hamlet of Santo Estevão but the owners provide you with great directions from either the EN125 or the A22 to make sure you don’t get lost on the way to the hotel.

This is a real retreat away from the rest of the world and to keep things peaceful children are only allowed to stay at the hotel during the month of August leaving the rest of the year free for the grown ups to enjoy this fantastic hotel.

Fazenda Nova has 10 stunning double rooms with each large and airy and having access to the gorgeous gardens and luxurious bathrooms that are very comfortable for a long or a short stay.

You can feel like you a long way from the rest of the world here and although it is only a short journey into Tavira where there are plenty of amenities you can actually have a fantastic time without ever leaving the hotel thanks to the delicious food served in the restaurant area of the main house and the little bar where you can catch up on local knowledge or find out about what has been going on over a glass or two of wine.

The entire hotel has been been filled with interesting trinkets and art pieces and you never quite know what to expect when you walk around the corner except you can be sure it will be a pleasant surprise!

The Fazenda Nova hotel is a very unique experience and is one that is not for people who are looking for a conventional location hotel with organised entertainment in the evening and a buffet dinner but it is an amazing alternative to the norm and is well worth looking out for if you are wanting somewhere special to spend time in the eastern Algarve.
