A traditional Portuguese stone built farmhouse set within acres of inspiring farmland with mature olive, fruit trees and a lagoon. It borders a nature reserve and is just 5 minutes drive from beautiful, golden sandy beaches of the Eastern Algarve.

Le logement
The accommodation is half of a farmhouse, with its own entrance and private terrace. There are two good sized bedrooms, one double and the other with one single and one double bed. The kitchen is incorporated into the main living space, and there is also the bathroom with walk-in shower.

The Terrace has a good sized BBQ area and patio furniture and indoors there is a wood burner for the winter evenings.

The farmhouse is on land that is the home of The Beekeepers Project: Art & Nature and makes this a truly unique destination and more than just a relaxing holiday home. There is a large amount of organic farmland and we would encourage people to walk and explore the land. Our vision is to create a dynamic creative hub for artists and visitors alike, working with the land to create alternative spaces for artists to work in, and inspiring and surprising places for people to visit and enjoy.

The land offers beautiful views across the surrounding area and has a feeling of quiet tranquility, whilst only being a few minutes drive from more bustling towns and the beautiful beaches the Algarve is famous for. There is also a lagoon with pontoon and plenty of fish if you fancy trying your luck.

Also on site is the swimming pool, in a picturesque spot surrounded by olive trees. The pool is for use by any guests, so this will be shared during summer or busy periods. It is open for as long as possible during the summer, typically from May to October.

Accès des voyageurs
Guests are encouraged to explore the land, where viewing platforms and a lagoon can be found. Also situated on the land is The Beekeepers “Phaedra”, built for artists and visitors as a retreat and creative space which guests are welcome to look around when this isn't occupied.

Autres remarques
This is a rural environment, set amongst organic farmland. There are animals on site and nearby including dogs, cats and free ranging chickens. However, the bees themselves have now moved on and live nearer the beach!

The farmhouse is divided into two separate homes; the other side of the house is normally lived in by Tom & Jennifer, artists who established The Beekeepers but may be occupied by other guests at some points of the year.

Castro Marim, Portugal

The Farmhouse is in a rural setting. All around are views of olive, carob and orange trees. These are managed by the Quinta da Fornalha organic farm, who harvest figs, almonds, olives & salt. Guests are encouraged to visit the farm shop and Taberna just a couple of minutes walk from our home. Here guests can take a tour to find out more and taste their wonderful products.

Within walking distance there are 2 restaurants, 1 with bar, and 1 take-away serving Portuguese grilled food.

Within a few minutes drive are the towns of Castro Marim with its impressive medieval castle, the busier town of Altura with plenty of shops and attractions in the summer months, and a drive past the nature reserve takes you to Vila Real do Santo Antonio, the final town on the Portuguese side of the border with Spain. The resort of Monte Gordo is also only about 10 minutes drive.

The nearest beach is 2.5 kms away and can be walked to in approximately 20/25 minutes but is just 5 minutes by car.

The local area is ideal for bird watching and over 70 species have been spotted to date on site. It's particularly suited to bird watchers and wild flower enthusiasts during spring and autumn, but with the Algarve's wonderful climate and ever changing seasonal landscape we would encourage holiday makers to visit throughout the year.

The Beekeepers is housed on the land of Quinta da Fornalha, an award winning Bio-dynamic farm that has been run by the Dias family for generations. Due to the specific local micro-climate the Quinta can boast producing the first figs available in Europe each year. Other produce includes carob and hand-harvested sea salt from her father's nearby salt ponds.

We are proud caretakers of over 30 hectares of Quinta da Fornalha, working with the farmland and expanding their vision by developing The Beekeepers: Art in Nature project allowing this inspiring land to be shared.

In September 2014 Tom & Jennifer moved to The Algarve, Portugal from London and joined forces with local artist Pedro Leitao to set up The Beekeepers a creative home in Portugal. Joe and Sally relocated to Portugal in early 2017, joining The Beekeepers, continuing the evolution of the project. Joe and Sally will be your points of contact during your stay and if you have any queries prior to arrival. Tom and Jennifer are both full-time artists but away from their own personal work they set up and run Studio 180, a collection of unique art studios, and Gallery 223, an Art Gallery & Arts Club in central London. When staying at The Beekeepers we aim to create an environment that inspires you in a warm and relaxed fashion. The farmhouse itself has been separated into two spaces, one that Tom & Jennifer live in and the other is let out. On the land surrounding the house we have built The Birdhouse and Phaedra the multi-function creative space and residence, comfortable spaces to disappear to and get back to nature. The Beekeepers are creating a unique space, a home from home set in an environment that will reawaken the senses. The Beekeepers are closely linked to Quinta da Fornalha, a working farm and taberna just 5 minute walk from the house.
