Conversas de Alpendre | Vila Nova de Cacela, Eastern Algarve

A porch is a privileged meeting point for heartfelt talks

Conversas de Alpendre (porch talks) is a unique boutique hotel themed around life’s simple pleasures. And what better place than to do it here, in the Eastern Algarve, where slow life gets an extra dimension amidst rolling hills covered in orange trees and miles of spectacular empty beaches. Where the temperature is warm throughout the year, silence and comfort, charm and friendship, flavours and stars, will make you feel the true soul of this special place.

A perfect harmony between rusticity and sophistication, designed with a love for Portugal: woods, wicker, rattan, textiles and typical tiles, the suites and apartments, are all fully furnished with all the necessary amenities for a memorable stay. There are shared and private terraces with garden views or far reaching views over the orange groves towards the ocean. Each one is different, with some having private jacuzzis on the terrace. Choose from cozy suites a deux to a 2-bedroom apartment sleeping a family of four. Special accommodations include a treehouse apartment 6,5 meters high above the ground on top of a carob tree, built entirely from wood and by hand plus a loft style suite set in a warehouse.

The common room, besides the library and the bar, is the space where a regional, organic and seasonal breakfasts is served with the best flavours Algarve has to offer: homemade bread, honey and jams, cheese and fresh fruit juices from the own orchard. Picnic lunches and dinners are on request. Self catering is possiblein the apartments which have a kitchenette. And there are the famous fish and seafood restaurants of Cacela Velha, Cabanas and Santa Luzia nearby. Enjoy lazy days in the garden between the fruit trees, ancient olive and carob trees, and cool off in the saltwater pool. Within 5 minutes drive is the beautiful Ria Formosa National Park with its wildlife and undeveloped beaches.

The DNA: Marta and Tiago hd their son Francisco in 2016. A new life that inspired to change their lives. They left jobs and careers and seized an opportunity and a dream: to create a rural tourism in their vision. From Lisbon, they left for Cacela. Along they way they managed to have grandparents Cristina and José Carlos joining the adventure. Like to hear the whole story? They would be happy to share, relaxed on the porch, under the Algarve’s sun or moon.
