A Vivenda is a beautiful independent guest house. It is built in traditional style with modern day comfort. It has two bedrooms, a tastefully decorated living room with fireplace, separate kitchen and private veranda and terrace.
You´ll be staying at Quinta Alfarrobeira, an inspiring estate of 6ha, 4 km from the lively fishermen’s town of Lagos and 1,5 km from the lagoons and the white, sandy beach of Meia Praia bay. As the Quinta is situated on a hill it has wonderful views all-around of the surrounding country side with its olive, fig and almond trees. The Quinta that breaths tranquillity offers a lot of space and privacy to its guests. There are several accommodation units that have been lovingly built and restored with an eye for detail. Each unit has its own character and all units are connected through an inner garden with terraces, paths, old olive trees, herb and vegetable gardens and fruit trees. The traditional bread oven in the garden will be occasionally lit for a pizza night. For years guests have been enjoying the peace, the beauty and magic of this very special place.

Besides the Vivenda there is one other guesthouse, two beautiful rooms and a loft appartment. Guests can freely wander around, use the various barbecues and the bread oven, pick fruit, herbs and vegetables in the various gardens and orchards, dream away in a hammock or take a dive in the large swimming pool. There is ample parking space
Interaction with guests
The Quinta is run by Dutch owners Theo and Inge and their sons in a relaxed, ´take us as you find us´ kind of way. All vegetables and fruit at the Quinta are organic and the eggs are free-range. You can purchase organic wine and/or vegetables from local producers or, if available from the Quinta´s garden. Every now and again we´ll light the bread oven and organize a pizza night.
Other things to note
The Quinta is run in a sustainable manner. We use renewable energy sources for hot water, cooking and central heating. A solar tracking system produces electricity, rainwater is collected, we recycle authentic building materials of architectural value, and, whenever possible, we use natural materials in the developing processes. We use ecologically friendly cleaning products and recycle waste materials in order to create the lowest environmental impact possible.
We would like our guests to feel at home and respect the environment (separate garbage, use the eco-friendly cleaning products that we provide etc.). We have no special rules. Pets are allowed in mid- and low season, 1 pet per unit (only the guesthouses and the apartment).
