Colourful hideaway near Algarve beaches
Palmeira Guesthouse in Luz de Tavira is a unique holiday accommodation with pool, located right in the middle of an orange orchard. Close to the Atlantic coast with beautiful beaches, the lovely town of Tavira, Unesco protected nature reserve Ria Formosa and many islands to visit during your stay at this Travel Gem.
On of the key features we loved is that guests can wonder around the orchard and pick seasonal fruit. Every month has something to offer: oranges from January to July, pomegranates from October to December, grapes and kaki fruit in summer. You can also choose to relax in nice little chill spots, read a book, listen to the birds or don't do anything at all, this is a great place to just be.
Palmeira Guesthouse is run by the charming couple Jurgen and Carolien and they call it their quirky little getaway with a big connection to nature, fruits, chickens, etc. We would like to add that it is a tranquil accommodation, tucked right in between hundreds of orange trees.
And the pool...just wow. It is originally the old water tank of the farm which they used in the old days to water the orchard. Today, it is filled with water from the dam and it is converted to a lovely pool! The use of a salt water filter system is a treat for the skin and it's a lot better for the environment. There are sun beds around the pool to relax and if you go even higher, you can find the rooftop terrace with lounge bed and ocean view. From here you will have the perfect sunset every day.
