16 Rua Nova da Fonte


A little gem hidden in the beautiful and cultured old part of the City of São Brás de Alportel. No.16 is the perfect place for a romantic stay or base whilst exploring all that Portugal has to offer. 

The property is fantastically located, just a 30 second walk to the carpark, and within three minute’s walk to so much - local lunch-spot Cafe Barreira, the fab outdoor swimming pool in the Verbena Gardens, the library with welcoming cool and calm interior, the main square with fountains, bars,  restaurants, shops and chemist, the local Tuesday to Saturday fresh vegetable and fish Mercado, and the Museo do Traje with all it’s history, happenings, and even movie nights - the last two dedicated all funds to Ukrainians here.  Being in São Bràs is authentic living and breathing Algarve.  

Rua Nova da Fonte is a cobbled one-way street - a calçada -  with a passing car once every 2 to 3 hours.

No.16 is peacefully located, the occasional dog breaking the silence, and the gorgeous owl’s calling at night just a real delight!


Inside the property, the well-equipped kitchen and diningroom are open-plan and the extended sitting room leads into the downstairs en-suite room with large tv and cable channels, air-con, and french doors onto the terrace.  You have all the features needed for a comfortably spacious and relaxing stay here. If travelling with a little one, cots and highchairs can be ordered in at an additional charge, and the reservations team will help you with this. 


Upstairs, the plant-filled landing leads into the large king-sized bedded room with en-suite bathroom, aircon, and ceiling fan.  Linen is cool white cotton and towels are thick and lush.


The roof terrace is a meditteranean oasis of plants, with shady umbrellas and seating - lovely al fresco space for morning coffee and evening glass of vinho verde or two!

The downstairs terrace features a range of plants, seating and built-in BBQ with utensils.  And hose for outdoor shower!


São Bràs de Alportel is 25 minute’s drive from Faro Island beach, and within 35 minutes to Praia de Tavira, Praia Ancão with Izzy’s - a local       fave restaurant spot, Praia de Loulè and Praia do Barrill, and more.  Golf courses abound in the nearby Quinta do Lago and Cabanas de   Tavira areas.  For locals here, the saying is São Bràs chooses you - if you are lucky!
