Farmhouse or the Palms is located in the authentic Algarve, which is just slightly different....
From the bed and breakfast you can undertake a lot of activities. A day out, enjoy the beach or visit one of the cultural towns like Tavira, Faro, Silves.
To the south and east of Faro are five islands that make up the Ria Formosa nature reserve. Most of these islands are only accessible by boat / ferry from Faro, Olhão and Tavira. Exception is Ilha de Faro which could be reached by a bridge and Ilha de Tavira (Praia do Barril) which is accessible by train. The beaches are beautiful, wide and long. Even in high season there is sufficient space so that you never have to fight for a great place.
West of Faro are the beaches of Vale do Lobo and Quinta do Lago. Recommended is Ancoa especially Garrão Poente and Garrão Nascente.
Further to the west are two beautiful beaches certainly worth mentioning: Praia Falesia (Albufeira, known for its impressive red rock formation) and Praia Marinha (Benagil, in our opinion the most picturesque beach of the Algarve).
The region of São Brás de Alportel (located between the coast and the Serra) lends itself to different kinds of walks. Walk in the Rio Formosa, a unique park with about 18,000 hectares of lagoons and a magnificent flora and fauna, walks in the hills north of São Brás de Alportel, surrounded by cork and olive groves, along small roads through villages where time seems to stand still, the authentic Algarve where people live and enjoy what nature gives them.
There are surprisingly many and good restaurants nearby. The owners will advise you!
