3 to 7 Days Gastronomic Programs 

Immerse yourself in the Mediterranean lifestyle by staying with a local family in a traditional Portuguese farm. Join us for our farm-to-table cooking classes, where you'll have the chance to visit some of the finest local markets and hand-pick fresh ingredients directly at the farm. Explore the local culinary scene as we take you to meet our trusted producers, including an internationally awarded olive oil producer. Discover the secrets of the finest Fleur de Sel crystals in the world, harvested from beautiful salt marshes, and even collect your own oysters in a unique Natural Reserve. Dive into the world of local wines as we visit vineyards and indulge in tasting sessions. 

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 cook in our cooking classes and serve to our guests. 

These programs are also available for clients staying in a different accommodation.

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.

The groups are small (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 travellers.

Private programs for groups are also available (with the exclusive use of the house and all facilities).
