Recently stayed at with Winnihill. Friends recommended this place to us, and I am glad we took their advice. We were blown away, the place is amazing with stunning ocean view overlooking Olhao and the islands Culatra and Farol. The place is absolutely spotless. Breakfasts are healthy and fresh, with lots of fruit and Fiona’s home-baked bread and muffins. Every day there a was another special. We were definitely spoiled ☺ Lots to do in the neighbourhood. Our highlights. We had a nice walk in the beautiful gardens of Estoi’s palace and a coffee afterwards on the cute square in front of the church. In Estoi we had coffee at the bakery Maria Magdalena, a undiscovered gem where they serve delicious glutenfree cakes. From there we took the boat to Farol. After crossing the island from the boat through sandy paths, you come to this fantastic beach bar Maramais with Atlantic view right next to the Farol / lighthouse. Charmingly furnished and very colourful, it welcomes its guests. Sun terrace with sunbeds and Atlantic view. The island Armona was also super nice, there we spend a lovely afternoon in another beach bar Camaleao. In an unique ambience with our feet in the sand we enjoyed a lovely lunch. It was a bit more pricy than Maramais but definitely worth the visit. Will be heading back there again in the summer of 2021. Thanks Fiona & Robin!

What a wonderful time we had at Winniehill. First we've had a warm welcome by the 2 sweet dogs. Next we've met Robin and Fiona. What an amazing couple they are! They gave a lot of good tips for restaurants and places to visit. The breakfast was amazing, never had such a delicious breakfast! The view was also amazing! We rented a car, so we could travel to many places they advised. Don't hesitate to go there, it's really worth visiting Winniehill!

If you are looking for a great B&B in Faro I can highly recommend Winniehill. We have been here for the 2nd time and our stay was brilliant again. They are ranked number one, and that is absolutely the place they deserve. The view is amazing, the owners are very friendly helpful people, and the breakfast is amazing.

It was the best accommodation we could choose around Faro. Everything was amazing during our stay at Winniehill... the stunning view from the breakfast table and pool during day and night time, the quite nature around the property, the most delicious breakfast, amusing pets and not to forget the warm hospitality we were met with. Fiona and Robin were so helpful in choosing good restaurants for dinner and excursions for the day. It is a very good place to stay at while exploring the Algarve as a lot of nice towns, beaches and restaurants can be reached within 15-20 minutes in car. Winniehill is definitely worth a stay :) Thank you so much to Robin and Fiona for making our holidays unforgettable! Michael and Lisa
