Only half an hour from the Algarve coast and Faro airport, it is perfect place to savour the Algarve, avoiding the more crowded coastal resorts. As for gastronomy you can enjoy delicious fish together with excellent Portuguese wines.

Designed by the Architect Miguel Jacobetty, Pousada S. Brás is one of the first seven Pousadas to appear in Portugal. The Pousada started with 5 rooms, then had 14 rooms and, in 1997, enlarged to 33.
