Reviewed 15 May 2014

We spent 4 nights here at the end of April, the weather, hotel and surrounding area was great. The hosts João and Francisco were brilliant nothing was to much trouble. Lovely cool rooms and we did not need the air conditioning even though it was close to 30C. We ate in the restaurant one night and that was a lovely experience. 10 -15 minute drive from Tavira and the lovely beach at Barrill with kms of beach, a nice time of year to visit with no crowds. We will be back.

Francisco was easy to work with leading up to and during our visit, showing great hospitality throughout the process. We stayed in the main house, which was directly adjacent to the restaurant and the pool. The room and bathroom were compact, but didn't feel small. The architecture was very authentic to the agriturismo feel of the property. It was a bit too cold for us to swim (mid-April), but the salt-water pool looked great (other than a few bugs in the water) and I enjoyed dangling my legs in it while reading a book. The property is nestled in between rolling hills of farmland and unused, lush land filled with purple, white, and yellow flowers; we were told that on a clear day, you can hike to the top of a hill to see the coast. There are nearby farm houses with lemon and orange trees. The lobby/restaurant features a full bar with a nice selection of wines. Prior to our trip, on recommendation from a precious reviewer, we arranged for a 3-course dinner upon our arrival. Francisco was more than happy to arrange this and was very accommodating to dietary restrictions as well. We enjoyed our best meal of our 8-night trip through Spain and Portugal eating roast fish, vegetables, and potatoes on an outdoor balcony as Francisco lit candles, poured wine, and intermittently stopped by to chat. We only had 2 nights here, but would very gladly go back for this property.

Room Tip: Pick a room in the main house near the pool to be close to the restaurant. They are smaller than the...

You need a car but the driving is easy! The hotel is just off the beaten track surrounded by nature - olive trees and Carib trees ... The red soil making the views incredulous... The room we stayed in was clean tidy and welcoming and the bed soooooo comfortable - the linen smelt fresh and clean - the guys are friendly and nothing is too much trouble, breakfast is as you would expect - ham cheese chorizo - lovely breads, honey cereals and yogurts as well as cake and fruit juice and tea/coffee - we never are lunch as we were full!!! The views from the terrace are spectacular esp at sun set ... We ate in one night and we were given a candlelit meal... I'm really fussy and don't eat fish so pork loin was cooked and it was wonderful with a bottle of vino Verdi - perfect ... We have been spoilt as the only guests as we are really out of season... So we could chat a bit... We were given a map and places suggested and I had a lot of studying to do so it all fitted together perfectly. If you draw or walk or take photos - come and get the rural Algarve experience here!!!

My wife and I have just spent a few wonderful days in this exceptionally pleasant hotel. The hosts – João and Francisco – were very friendly and open and they did everything possible to make us feel welcome. The location is perfect: amidst beautiful rural landscape and only ten minutes car drive from Tavira. We will definitely go back there one day!

A short drive north west of Tavira lies this gem. Originally a Portuguese farmstead or Quinta it lies in a fold of the hills which are covered with olive, carob and other native tree species. At this time of the year the fruit laden lemon and orange trees provide colour against the green landscape. It is a real retreat with comfortable rooms, bar and terrace and genuine Portuguese cooking with a good wine list.There is also a swimming pool and tennis court and access to countryside walks. It is a quite different experience from the seaside and a great base to explore the Algarve..Francisco and his team go to every effort to make their guests comfortable and we look forward to our next visit.

Room Tip: The doubles in the block facing the pool are very comfortable.

A highlight of our recent trip to Portugal had to be staying at this gem in the Algarve. Surrounded by rolling hills and blissful isolation, the property is meant to be enjoyed by those who want a break from tours and tourists. With friendly hosts, a fantastic pool, a well-stocked bar, the best breakfast in the country, and spacious, rustic rooms, it is no wonder we extended our stay a day later than planned (I wish we could have stayed a week).

Be sure to catch a sunset from the pool or surrounding deck.

Reviewed 19 September 2013

We only stayed for one night at the Herdade da Corte at the end of our 8 night break in the Algarve, and as soon as we arrived, I knew I would regret not staying for longer. It's extremely remote, about 15/20 minutes from the town on Tavira (which is nice for a wander around and some lunch) and definitely in a rural location. It's pretty easy to find, as the signs are super clear (ignore the sat nav!) and once you step out of the car, it's almost silent.

The pool area is gorgeous, set in a real suntrap which gets the sun late into the evening, and furnished with really comfortable loungers, tables and softer areas to chill out.

Relaxation is definitely the name of the game, and because of this, it felt like a lovely end to our holiday, and we were able to go back to the airport the next day feeling fully refreshed- it's about 40 minutes from Faro.

If you want to have an evening meal at the hotel, just ask, and they will provide an extremely reasonable, home-cooked 3 course meal on the terrace, which just feels so much more luxurious than the price.

Basically, if you want a classy hotel, in a relaxing, beatiful part of the Algarve then this is the place fo you.
