  • Pottery making

The pottery workshop in Silves is a great way to spend a day in the Algarve and it is a truly Portuguese experience. The location is beautiful, calm, and authentic. You will learn on a pottery wheel and get a piece to take home as souvenir. The class is detailed and it can be combined with the local food offered during the session. Our guide and the pottery artist can give one of the best experience of the inner Algarve.

  • Guided hiking

Starting in the morning at the front door of the hotel and ending at the same front door after a day of nature and information about what the Serra de Monchique has to offer us. The hikes can be tailor made to your experience and the temperatures of the day.

  • Forest bathing

Enjoy a stroll among the trees and immerse yourself in the beauty of nature. Discover pathways and a place to relax basking in the colour, scent and sounds of our small corner of the Algarve.

  • Hot Spring

Talking about hidden gems… this hot spring hike beats everything. Imagine, the most remote area in the hills of Monchique. It’s absolutely stunning over there and extremely peaceful. Not many people know this place exists and it’s actually a sacred place.

The hike is only 3km but we take a slow pace, cross the river multiple times, surrounded by trees and with a visit to the ancient hot spring baths. If you want you can even take a dip in the 27 degrees water. A very quirky place but full of sacred history.

  • Beach day

Immerse yourself in the serene beauty of pristine shores and crystal-clear waters. Spend your days lounging on powdery sand, swimming in the azure sea, and enjoying an array of beachfront activities.
