Over the years our unique 12-room hotel has been taken over by groups of yoga lovers, boot camps, surfers, cyclists, walkers and organised holidays featuring a wealth of beauty and wellbeing treatments.

In fact, Casa Fajara has featured in Condé Nast Traveller as a recognised retreat location. The magazine highlighted a group trip organised by facialist Glenda Barton, a woman it described as ‘a non-surgical miracle-worker.’ Click here to read the article.

Casa Fajara’s beauty inspires artistic guest – and we love it

This wonderful painting of Casa Fajara was produced by a guest – and it made our day.

The peace, tranquillity and rural loveliness of the hotel’s surroundings soothe the soul – and inspire creativity.

Though many guests join us simply to switch off and recharge their batteries, they find that being amid such glorious countryside inspires them to want to paint, write or study the wild flowers or creatures they discover on their walks.

Casa Fajara says: “This beautiful painting not only showcases our gorgeous hotel, it shows how being here is a fulfilling and inspirational experience for our guests.

“We see people arrive worn and weary. By the end of their holiday they’re bronzed, relaxed, happy and rejuvenated. A stay here is transformational for some of our guests. It truly gives them the break from normal life pressures that they desperately need.

“You can forget about everything at Casa Fajara – and that is exactly how we want it to be. Life is hectic and stressful. At Casa Fajara guests can kick off their shoes, explore the nature on their doorstep, sink their toes into sand and live for the moment in a part of the Algarve that’s relatively undiscovered.”
