3 to 7 Days Gastronomic Programs
Our Gastronomic holidays in Algarve offer an immersive and hands on experience designed to teach you more about the Portuguese gastronomy, our local products and inspire you with recipes that are authentic and traditional.
We will take you to visit some of our local producers, including a internationally awarded olive oil producer; learn more about the finest Fleur de Sel (Salt flower) crystals in the world and the beautiful salt marshes where they grow; collect your own oysters on an unique Natural Reserve; discover local vineyards and learn more about our wines, tasting! You will have the chance to experience the Mediterranean lifestyle visiting some of the best local food markets, be able to select your own fresh products and choose all the ingredients we will need for the cooking sessions, also in our farm organic garden.
The programs include 3 to 7 nights accommodation at Monte do Álamo, our Charming Rural Hotel in Tavira, integrated in a 7 hectare farm with beautiful views over the sea and Tavira (5 min. drive). We are certified organic producers and use our own products and from local producers in the menus we serve to our guests.
These programs are also available for clients staying in a different accommodation.
The groups are small (from 2 to max 12 people) and generally are a mix of couples, singles, and friends traveling together. Everyone is here to enjoy the experience of cooking, eating and meeting new people, so never a problem for solo travelers. We can also organize programs for private groups (with the exclusive use of the house and all facilities).
We have prepared standard programs with different durations. Those programs include a variety of activities to introduce you to the authentic Portuguese gastronomy and culture, but can always be adjusted to each ones preferences.
