In a rural, green area just 2 kilometers from the most beautiful sandy beaches, is nestled the alluring boutique hotel Conversas de Alpendre.
Comfort is the keyword here! The 10 attractive, spacious suites and the family apartment (for 2-4 people) are gorgeously decorated. Expect refined design, locally made furniture and accessories, Portuguese tiles, and extraordinarily spacious walk-in showers with luxury soap. Each suite has its own seating area in front of the door, Nespresso coffee, a SONOS music box, soft towels and bathrobes, comfortable box-spring beds and air conditioning. If you have something special to celebrate, choose the romantic tree house with a panoramic view of the orange groves and the sea. Absolutely unique!
The vibe is quiet and relaxed, the Portuguese owners are very welcoming and friendly and provide a unique family feel. Children play here together in the garden, and the pool has a dedicated children's pool.
Start the day with a breakfast consisting of homemade bread, pancakes, a fried egg, honey and jam, local cheeses, and fresh fruit juices from the orchard. Spend the next few hours on the XL lounge beds by the pool, and jump into the water to cool off. There are hammocks in the peaceful garden full of wildflowers and orange trees for a shady siesta and massages can be booked.
If you want to spend the day actively, the owners can recommend countless excursions that they have made personally. Borrow a bike and ride to the idyllic beach of Fábrica, explore on horseback the surrounding meadows and coastline (also for the kids) and admire picturesque villages and the natural splendor of Ria Formosa. Upon your return, a creative dinner with regional recipes is waiting for you; and end the day on your terrace enjoying the scent of the orange trees and a glass of local wine. This is vacation!
All accommodations in our unique collection meet our high standards in quality, comfort, style and setting. We visit every place, meet the owners and explore the area, so we are sure that you will have a great holiday here!

Hotel Conversas de Alpendre is set in the small hamlet of Santa Rita in the Eastern Algarve (Portugal), 2 km from Cacela Velha and 8 km from Tavira. Here you come to enjoy unspoiled nature, beaches, and pretty villages. The owners keep discovering new places and are happy to share them with you.
The hotel has bicycles to borrow, or you can ride on a horse through the nearby meadows and orange groves all the way to the coast and back (a great excursion for the kids)!
Head in the morning to Fábrica beach to collect shells and walk to the nearby “bounty” island at low tide home to a sandy beach with umbrellas. When the tide turns, you can take a taxi boat back, the journey takes only a minute. A one-way ticket costs 1 euro (0.50 for children).
The sandy beaches in the area are gorgeous and are part of the Ria Formosa Natural Park. Manta Rota is an ideal beach for children. Praia Verde (15 minutes), Pedras d'el Rei (20 km), and Ilha Deserta (near Faro) are as well worth a visit. The latter is an uninhabited island with crystal clear water and a white sandy beach. There is a two-kilometer-long hiking trail along the dunes where you can observe the wildlife of Formosa. And then you reward yourself in Restaurant Estamine (the southernmost in Portugal!) with a dish of super fresh fish.
Of course, you will find as well countless water sports and boat trips!
