Best Countryside Lodging 2019
FARMHOUSE OF THE PALMS: historical, beauty, serenity and space
Close to the top of a hill, with magnificent and far-reaching views over the green Algarve countryside stands Farmhouse of the Palms, a boutique B&B.
A place of singular beauty with whitewashed walls, terracotta floors and almost 300 years of history, Farmhouse of the Palms is one of the grandest and most elegant houses in Algarve
The owners, Frank & Véronique, restored this stunning estate back to its former beauty, with respect for its history while blending a contemporary, rustic style with the traditional Portuguese architecture. The Farmhouse feels as secluded as a small village. The owners wanted to create a curated place, a place of beauty and tranquility but also of natural unpretentiousness. A place where you can be just yourself, a space that offers privacy when you crave for it, a place that soothes the eye with its natural aesthetics. A dream in white, a place of magic.
Centrally located in Algarve and just 15km from Faro and the ocean, Farmhouse of the Palms Bed & Breakfast is a perfect starting point to explore the Algarve and its pretty cities like Tavira, Faro and Loulé,
to visit some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, to go for long walks amid fields of wild flowers and smells of rosemary and lavender, to visit the Ria Formosa with its islands, deserted beaches and pretty flora.
To rent a bike and to explore the hinterland parsed with villages where time stood still. A region where many people still work the land like their parents and grandparents before them. Where old traditions continue untarnished and tourism seems far away.
Silence reigns throughout the Farmhouse, water fountains bring a welcome sound of refreshment during the hot summer days while the singing of birds will wake you from your afternoon nap.
Farmhouse of the Palms has been voted “Best Countryside Lodging in Portugal” in 2019 by Publituris. This award is among the highest acclaim a hotel can get in Portugal.
We welcome you to stay and experience the Farmhouse.
