Portuguese cookery break

Algarve, Faro, Portugal

per person

About the location

The Algarve, Portugal’s southernmost region, is the place to be inspired and excited for food while being experiencing authentic Portuguese culture. Its location provides your cookery hosts with direct access to some of the best produce in the country.

Using only the freshest seafood, local meats and produce straight from the market, you will go from marketplace and waterfront straight to the farmhouse kitchen. What’s more, your host Mariana and/or her family will also take you to meet local producers, show you how to choose only the best products, and guide you around this amazing area in between cooking and tucking in.

Your home during your stay is at the beautifully renovated farmhouse, surrounded by fig, almond and olive trees, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, yet only a 20 minute walk from the ancient Moorish town of Tavira on the Algarve coast.

As well as being the location for your accommodation, this is where most of the Portuguese cookery lessons will take place so you can make the most of the onsite organic garden where a lot of the ingredients for your cooking lessons will come from.

Each of the 6 ensuite rooms have been lovingly decorated, fitted with air conditioning and free WiFi access. The south facing rooms all have stunning ocean views whereas the north facing rooms have their own private terrace. Your hosts have taken the time to make sure there are plenty of communal areas for relaxing, as well as a restaurant, splash pool, and terraces on site.

The climate in the Algarve is sunny and warm year round, with the ocean and beaches close by for you to take advantage of in your free time. You will also find shops, restaurants, and bars located in the heart of the nearby Tavira. If you feel the need to venture further out, your hosts will be there to help you organise your free time to get the most out of their native region.

This Portuguese cooking holiday is the perfect place to escape to and get a balance of amazing food, sunny days and culture during a unique cookery experience.
