This was our second time in Rio Arade and it was amazing again. It is located in a small village but very close to Ferragudo, Portimao and many nice beaches. It is easy to park just in front of the house and free of charge. Rio Arade is a typical Algarvian house with a beautiful garden to relax and drink...

With one more day till we leave, this has been an enjoyable visit. Greeted by John, the proud owner, we were taken on a tour of his lovingly restored establishment. Our room had the luxury of a veranda just covered in flowers and two loungers for a personal spot to top up your tan or read in the cooler evening...

We only had one night here and how we wish we could have stayed longer. John and Ana were very friendly and helpful - they recommended a local Portuguese restaurant which turned out to be our favorite meal of our whole trip to Portugal (including a few nights in Lisbon).

An Ideal base for exploring the Western Algarve. Even the west coast is no more than an hour 's drive away. The hotel is situated in a small inland village approximately ten minutes drive from nearest beach. In my view a car is essential. John is a very welcoming host and is happy to give advice on places to visit...
