Fazenda S. Bartolomeu / Rua do Monte Grande
First reviewed by Clare
It's really more of a designer B&B than a hotel (which was a pleasant surprise) and Tina was lovely and really made us feel at home. Breakfast was amazing, and the common spaces were wide, well-appointed and the honesty bar was a delight as well. We stayed in the Junior Suite which was split level, with the bedroom/double bed upstairs, but there was a single bed on the lower level, so you could very easily come as a couple with a friend/sibling or child as well and stay. The shower facilities were lovely.The outside spaces look exactly like the pictures. If it was warmer we would have taken a dip in the pool. It was a supremely relaxing weekend, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone.
We absolutely loved this place. There was such a tranquil air about it that we fell in love with it immediately. While we ran about the coast in search of sights and adventures, we were just as excited to get back to the hotel. The breakfasts in the morning were impeccable and the dinner they set up for us was simply amazing. In hindsight we would have done dinner there every night if we had known.
Incredibly relaxed place to be. Lots of space, both indoors and outdoors. Nice furniture, and thus lots of places to curl up with a book or a drink. Delicious breakfasts, and dinner as well (worth booking!). Very much focused on local produce - we were there right in the middle of the fig season. Beautiful design, and everyone was incredibly helpful without being intrusive.
