Just 4 Km from Olhão and 20mn drive from either Faro or Tavira stands Pedras Verdes Guesthouse. The house is typical Algarvean architecture as its best, well proportioned and wholly sympathetic to the calm surroundings. The spacious ground (4 acres property) have, for the most part, been left in their natural state, apart from clearing away undergrowth to enhance the smattering of ancient cork, orange, olive and carob trees and laying out simple gravelled path edged in collected rocks. Hammocks are indolently slung between the trees and the ecological saltwater pool area is sufficiently far from the house for boisterous swimmers not to spoil the peace and harmony. The overall colour is white, with exclamation marks provided by stone sculptures, odd walls, steps and doors painted in orange and giving a delightful effect.
