Quinta da Lua

Boutique hotel in Tavira

Orange and carob groves surround this tranquil converted manor house 6km west of Tavira. Palms shade the large saltwater swimming pool, set amid extensive gardens aromatically planted with rosemary, lavender and olive trees. Some of its eight bright, stylish rooms have contemporary, cotton-canopied four-poster beds. Breakfast is served poolside in fine weather. From June to September, there's a minimum three-night stay.
