There´s no better place to soak up the Algarvian sunshine than in the beautiful gardens and terraces (made from local Santa Catharina handmade tiles). Around the pool are sunbathing corners and lawned areas and just behind the gate, on the east side, is an orchard with citrus fruits and a hidden “sundowner” corner. There are additional seating areas – one around the Pepper tree and others hidden behind the palm tree.
