A tranquil and stylish oasis set within the striking Rio Formosa countryside in the eastern Algarve. Surrounded by ancient olive and majestic carob trees, Pensao Agricola is not far from the bustling city of Tavira and close to a number of pristine beaches. This modern "rural" boutique hotel boasts six bedrooms, a plunge pool, a lovely covered terrace and a beautiful interior. The appearance is a pleasing blend of rustic simplicity and modern sophistication that complements the beautiful Portuguese landscape to perfection.
This charming country home was originally built in 1920 and functioned as a farmhouse until 1970. After more than 40 years of neglect, Rui and his partner (an architect and perfumer) finally took the dilapidated building firmly into hand. Thanks to their acute attention to detail and careful retention of precious curiosities, the property has since been lovingly transformed into stunning holiday accommodation where guests can truly relax and unwind.
All rooms are exceptionally comfortable and benefit from thoughtful finishing touches, such as industrial lamps from the 40s and 50s, artworks by local artists, pretty Portuguese bedspreads and quality organic body care products in the bathrooms. Breakfast is a genuine feast with cheerfully set tables, fresh produce, homemade cakes, and fresh coffee served by friendly staff.
All accommodations in our unique collection meet our high standards in quality, comfort, style and setting. We visit every place, meet the owners and explore the area, so we are sure that you will have a great holiday here!

Pensao Agricola is located in a fertile agricultural area of the Algarve, between the charming and historic town of Tavira and Cacela Velha, a picturesque fishing village on a cliff, only 1.5 km from the Formosa estuary and the deserted beaches. You are very close the beaches and other interesting sights. The bed and breakfast is located very quiet, yet close to the connecting road, so you're relatively quickly in the larger towns.
The eastern coast of the Algarve is characterized by the estuaries and sand islands, the Parque Natural de Ria Formosa forms an important habitat for birds and marine life. A series of spectacular beaches are on the coast: Ilha de Tavira, easily reachable by boat from Tavira, offering long and quiet & sandy beaches and bars.
Tavira has much to offer as a base for exploring the eastern part of the Algarve: historic gardens, shady squares, a fishing port, & well-known ruins of a castle, an ancient Roman bridge, an enticing assortment of restaurants | Another beautiful beach is Praia de Cacela Velha , near Manta Rota, lonely and beautiful, separated from the mainland by an estuary. It can be reached by walking from the beach of Manta Rota, or hire a boat at Fábrica, near the village of Cacela Velha. It is perhaps one of the least crowded of all the beaches of the whole Algarve.
