We spent 9 nights here in September. The place is very beautifully designed and restored. Everything is very clean. The beach is about 1.5km away so I recommend a rental car when you stay here. Breakfast is served on the terrace. They serve regional products and everything is great. Although slightly more choice during a stay of 9 nights would...

A quiet bucolic site in the countryside. Not far from beaches and island here in Tavira. Rooms: comfortable beds, nice feather pillows. But...no windows in the bedrooms are a disadvantage especially as the area has lovely views. Not an enormous amount of services. There is a Hamam but you have to walk down the road to another building where there...

We (two adults, one child) visited my sisters family in their appartment in CC. For sleeping on a bed-sofa and on a madrass we were charged 130 Euros per night which was by far the most overprized location during our Portugal trip. My wife did one yoga-course (which was included) which had high quality. Our advice to the owner: to...

Dear Lars It was with astonishment that I read your comment. The apartment booked by your sister (2 adults and 3 children), although spacious has a maximum occupancy of 6 people. Because your sister showed a lot of happiness to receive your family for 3 nights, we exceptionally added two extra beds, warning that this solution did not correspond to...

This place was a highlight of a three-week tour through France, Spain and Portugal - loved the peace and quiet, the facilities and the attention to detail and design. Breakfasts were delicious and super filling. We had dinner there one night - smallish and expensive portions, but very good! I had a body scrub at the hammam and stayed for...

This was our first visit to Portugal, don't know why but it won't be our last. Not being 'all inclusive' or 'resort hotels' people we always try to find something more intimate and natural, and we definitely found it here. A delightful cluster of old farm buildings providing comfortable, rustic and very individual accommodation arranged within an enclosed site with...

We had a wonderfully relaxing two days here. Special mentions go to Tina, our host, who found time to take the children on adventures returning with armfuls of freshly picked figs, to Sylvia who welcomed us with open arms and to the chef who made scrambled eggs for our little girl, from their own chickens of course, in the middle...

People may define luxury in many ways, Compania Das Cultural includes all those definitions and much much more................ A true experience for those looking for tranquillity, originality and authenticity of The Algarve. The staff (more of a family) really go out of their way in making you feel welcome and truly hospitable. The rooms and the hotel in general though...

Nice farm house with two large communal rooms and a shaded patio. Breakfast and dinner was very good. Personnel very pleasant. BUT Very dificult to sleep. The bedrooms are at the edge of the grounds and share walls with two other houses, both of which have dogs that barked from 00h00 to 05h00. You expect some animal noise in the...

My wife and two daughters enjoyed our stay at CC tremendously. The warm hospitality and funky environment was both refreshing and relaxing. We could see Spain from where we ate breakfast! Both breakfast and dinner were utterly delicious and local restaurants and cultural recommendations were spot on. We would highly recommend staying at CC! Watch out for the pool though...

Companhia das Culturas is the best choice for people who search the real and genuine personality of the south of Portugal. Taste organic fruit for breakfast in a bright environment, where you can simply lay down, read, walk around and visit the amazing natural heritage that makes this part of the Algarve so interesting for the people who apreciate being...
