We decided to rehabilitate some old cottages inside our farm adapting then to nice and cozy accommodations for visitors to stay in. We are still rehabilitating the main building to be a small restaurant with local products and gastronomy, but also a eco-library and a small shop with local traditional and ecological local products from our and other farm in the neighborhood.
Nearby attractions and activities:
We can also provide very accurate information about the best spots to visit in the neighborhood, like alcoutim and cacela-velha, the best fresh fish restaurants, other quality local produces and ethnographic museums. We are buying bikes for the visitor to travel around because they're the healthy and ecological way to do it. Also its the only way the really appreciate the environment, ear the birds and smell the fields and flowers.

We run a family agro-turism service in Castro Marim, a small and very old town in Algarve, the southest region of Portugal.
