Travel is a big part of my life. In 2008 I decided to sell my flat in London, pack up all my things and take off to travel around the world for a year. It was the best thing I could have ever done. It changed my life. Since then, I have settled in the Algarve, Portugal on our beautiful family estate - a 6 hectare orgainc citrus farm on the best sunshine coast in Europe!
I started up a business with my family on our farm restoring 3 beautiful apartments that we now rent out to wonderful people like you. We put the emphasis on eco friendly - all our water is solar heated and we do not use fertilzers or chemicals on our trees. We let nature take it's rightful course.
Our hosting style is very relaxed and we hope our guests will take with them a calm and relaxing memory of our tranquil, peaceful setting.
In addition to renting out our apartments, I take guests on tours to stunning locations such as the beautiful West coast beaches, the majestic Monchique mountains, local vineyards and champagne sunsets in Sagres, Europes most Southern tip. I'm happy to arrange personalised tours too, just ask!
