A renovated 19th-century family farmhouse, Fazenda Nova has a rustic-chic décor with dove-grey interiors with such design items like Balinese teak furniture, Eames chairs, and exotic objects that the owners collected on their world travels.
Rooms feature a flatscreen TV, an iPod dock, a desk, air conditioning/floor heating and a terrace and private garden (one suite with terrace on first floor). Bathrooms in polished concrete have a walk-in rain shower, a hairdryer, bathrobes and complimentary Ren toiletries.
The restaurant is open 5 nights a week serving a daily changing menu with fresh produce from the market and homegrown produce (carob, figs, salad leaves plus their own olive oil). Fazenda Nova also has a bar, which after hours turns into a honesty bar.
The relaxing gardens wind around gently blowing grasses, aromatic herbs and exotic wild flowers with a saltwater pool overlooking the olive orchards.
Children are allowed 3 weeks a year only.
