typeBed & Breakfast
A bucolic oasis in the Algarve 10 minutes away from Vilamoura there lies a little bucolic paradise in the shape of the “Red Onion” to give the Cebola Vermelha its English name. In many respects it is an apt description, for guests tend to cry out for more once they’ve experienced a stay here, though the name actually comes from the red onions grown there and the red fertile ground from which they sprout.
This century old house is surrounded by some of the most peaceful landscapes the Algarve has to offer. The original lines of the house have been maintained, with red painted walls and spacious rooms mixing effortlessly Portuguese architecture with the sensibilities of Ard and Noor, the most hospitable Dutch couple who have turned the Cebola Vermelha into such a charming accommodation. Olive groves, centuries old trees and magnificent pool and garden simply invite guests to do… well, nothing. Though the Cebola Vermelha does not have a full restaurant as such, cuisine is an important part of a stay here.
Breakfast includes various types of breads, croissants, home made marmalades, cheese, yogurts, fresh fruit, orange juice, coffee or tea, etc, and on 3 days a week (Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays) guests can enjoy some of Ard’s excellent cooking using the best of local materials. It is also possible to have a light lunch by the pool or a sandwich.
If the peace and quiet gets to much for you, then the sophisticated resort is only some 10 minutes away.
