Pensão Agrícola | Cabanas de Tavira, Portugal

Pensão Agrícola is a hip b&b, set in a small farmhouse located in the quiet Sotavento (Eastern) Algarve. This undiscovered spot, framed by orange, fig, almond and arbutus trees, nestles between the historic town of Tavira and Cacela Velha, a picturesque clifftop fishing village, and just 1.5km from the Formosa delta and the deserted beaches that are its best-kept secret.
