About this listing
The Chapel Room is a characteristic room with a double bed, a kitchenette with fridge and cookerplate and a spacious bathroom in Moorish style with bath and shower. The entrance door gives onto a gallery that leads to the inner garden.
The Chapel Room is located on the property of Quinta Alfarrobeira, an enchanting, small scale rural estate in the Algarve - an ”all season” haven.
The inspiring estate is situated in the South-West Algarve, the region that is blessed with the most sun hours of Europe, 5km from the lively harbour town of Lagos and 1,5km from the white, sandy beach of Meia Praia bay. As the accommodation is built on a hilltop, there are magnificent views of the rural country with its old almond, fig and olive trees.
The authentic and personal character of the place creates an open and relaxed atmosphere. The main building and the guest houses have been lovingly built and restored, with an eye for detail.

Besides the Chapel Room, there is another room, a loft apartment and two independent guest houses. Guests can freely explore the grounds, pick fruit, herbs and vegetables, collect eggs, dream away in a hammock or take a dive in the large swimming pool.
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.
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).

Reviews From Guests
This place is magical !!! We stayed here for four nights and only left the quinta once to do some shopping in the nearby Odiaxere village (you can walk there in 20 mins). The surroundings are beautiful and the pool really big ! Atmosphere in the whole place is healing, calm, eco-friendly. You will fall asleep by the pool under the big carob tree and have amazing dreams. All the other guests were very respectful and we felt like we found our magical retreat away from the main tourist noise in Lagos town. We were lucky to come on a Friday when bakers used the outdoor bread oven and we helped bake some beautiful bread :) Inge made us feel very welcome, she was there when needed but at the same time left us to enjoy our privacy. We absolutely loved our stay here and hope to come back !
