Casa Fajara is located in Carrapateira on the South West Coast of the Algarve approximately an hour and a half from Faro and an hour from Lagos. Beautifully set in a tranquil valley of The Costa Vicentina Natural Park and close to the spectacular Bordeira and Amado beaches. Casa Fajara makes a wonderful venue to, rest, renew & recharge where all you can hear is the sea, cow bells & birds. 

Just down the track you will find the village of Carrapateira, here people live in the traditional way, working the land, fishing and cattle herding. It is well served by a minimarket, café, restaurants, surf and bicycle rental. Casa Fajara has been restored to provide “barefoot luxury” where guests can comfortably relax and feel at home. Within the secluded grounds we have a Garden Yoga room (60sqm), swimming pool (14m x 7.5m) with plunge pool, tennis court, sun terraces and lawns. Two large, versatile reception rooms (60sqm and 70sqm) have log fires and uninterrupted views across the valley and together with smaller areas if needed, can be arranged for activities, talks and demonstrations. 

Our twelve individual en suite rooms have a private balcony or terrace, internet, TV and hairdryer. Several rooms include a kitchenette for cooking light meals and snacks. Some rooms join together creating larger personal or group areas. The hotel accommodates up to thirty guests and has under floor heating and wonderful log fires for cooler months. The Garden Yoga Room is 60sqm with floor to ceiling mirrored back wall and a fully glazed wall to the front. Views across the hills draw the natural surroundings into the room inspiring natural peace and tranquillity. 20 Yoga mats and blankets and 40 Yoga bricks are provided. The private therapy room can be used for individual treatments and massages and if you would like additional practitioners for therapies and massage please ask us to include this with your quotation.

Breakfasts of fresh fruit and juices, pastries, local jams, honey and eggs can be provided or as you request with notice. We also cater for specialist diets including detox and macrobiotic. For larger groups we can arrange Pig Roasts, Fish and Seafood buffets and barbeques. We can also make recommendations and bookings for our local restaurants. 

Choose from an extensive range of activities to complement your event. We can arrange additional instruction for example detox and massage or perhaps something completely different such as surfing lessons, horse riding, foraging, guided walks, fishing, photography to name just a few.

The location is beautiful and has all the facilities you require, a nice room, great swimming pool, fantastic view and lovely breakfast. The beach and Carrapateira are both a short drive as well as Carrapateira (where a few restaurants are situated). Also the host was very kind and helpful. We recommend this place!
Tranquil and amazing location

A quiet and peaceful spot to access the amazing coastal walks and the beautiful valley on your door step. Lovely comfortable rooms with great views and the looking over the pool. A bit of confusion of wether they do or don’t offer evening meals so make sure you ask if you want an evening meal.

We had some wonderful days at Casa Fajara and can so much recommend it to anyone looking for a rustic, secluded and beautiful place. Such a nice crew taking care of us and such a wonderful place to stay in. Also loved the surroundings with Carrapateira, the beaches and the mountains. Thank you!

No se me van a olvidar los tres días fantásticos que disfrutamos en Casa Fajara. Desde el idílico entorno natural hasta los interiores llenos de detalles acogedores que contribuyen a una estancia confortable e increíble. La piscina preciosa, los desayunos riquísimos, la cama muy comoda y un sin fín de lugares para estar tranquilo. El próximo año vuelvo seguro.
We'll return for sure!

We stayed 4 nights at Casa Fajara, in the basic room. It was fantastic! We are two friends from Brazil, and since the basic room has two separate beds, it was perfect for us. The room has a small bathroom that doesn't have a door but a curtain instead. This might be a bit annoying for some guests. For us it was fine. The staff is very friendly, the hotel is very clean, the decor is super nice, and the swimming pool is great! Breakfast was good, but nothing too special. The village where the hotel is located is very charming and very close to all the important places, especially if you like surf and outdoors activities. I strongly recommend Casa Fajara!
Ruhig gelegene schöne Unterkunft

Wir hatten ein Zimmer der Kategorie „Luxury“, das war gut, aber sicherlich nicht luxuriös. Die Anlage ist schön, sehr ruhig gelegen. Man schaut vom Balkon aus auf Hügel, Wiesen und Kühe. Das Zimmer war sehr geräumig mit einem großen Balkon, ein Kühlschrank war vorhanden. Allerdings sind sie, wie eigentlich überall, sehr hellhörig. Das Frühstück war sehr gut, allerdings fanden wir ab 9.00 h etwas zu spät, zumal es dann manchmal auch gar nicht fertig war. Schade war es, dass die ganze Woche kein Essen angeboten wurde. Auf der Internetseite wurde angekündigt, dass es ab und zu Abendessen geben würde. Auch keine Kleinigkeiten wurden angeboten. Statt einer Bar mit Bedienung standen alle Getränke (reiche Auswahl) zur Selbstbedienung bereit. Ist okay, aber anders wäre es uns lieber gewesen. Auch die im Internet angekündigten Yogastunden fanden nicht statt und es gab auch keine Massagen. Eventuell lag es an der Vorsaison, wobei Hauptsaisonpreise zu zahlen waren. Alles in allem hat uns die Unterkunft aufgrund der ruhigen Lage sehr gut gefallen. Es gab zwei tolle Strände in der Nähe und man kann in den umliegenden Restaurants such gut essen.
Great placec to relax

Sitio tranquilo, a un paso de las playas de Carrapateira. Estuvimos en el año 2002 y el hotel ha sido totalmente remozado desde entonces. Buen desayuno. Siempre estaba Pate atento a que no faltase de nada. El personal muy amable. Atentos a cualquier petición o duda. Habitaciones limpias y agradables. No pudimos utilizar la piscina en los 5 días por un problema con el cloro. Había poca información al respecto. Hotel perfecto para pasar unos días en Portugal. Mejor si no hay niños.
