The Vibe: Slow life, Portuguese style.
The Area: In the countryside near Vila Nova de Cacela. Within 5 minutes drive is the beautiful Ria Formosa National Park with its wildlife and unspoilt, undeveloped beaches.
The DNA: 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. 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 possible in the apartments which have a kitchenette. Enjoy lazy days in the garden between the fruit trees, ancient olive and carob trees, and cool off in the saltwater pool.
Suite-Me-U: 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.
