About

Enthusiastic expatriates Michelle and Theo have converted this old quinta (farmhouse) into eight pleasant rooms – a creative blend of traditional Moorish with a touch of contemporary hippy. The B&B is set within a lovely garden, complete with hammocks, mosaic paths and fountains. A communal kitchen is a handy addition. It’s located in Moncarapacho, four kilometers inland from Fuzeta. Ring for directions. Unwind in the Portuguese Algarve! Let yourself be surrounded by Portuguese country life and be close to the beaches too. O Tartufo is an attractive and extraordinary little Bed & Breakfast just outside of the town Moncarapacho. The atmosphere at O Tartufo in southern Portugal breathes tranquillity. The B&B is situated in the tranquil Algarve near Moncarapacho and the small village near the ocean, Fuseta. It's a little over 20 kilometres from Faro airport and just 4 kilometres to the ocean.

2 Nights in Heaven

5 on June 06, 2011

My wife and I spent two nights in the bed and breakfast at the beginning of our trip. We wish we had made time for more. After having some trouble finding the dirt road to turn on to we were greeted as we pulled in and made to feel at home right away. Everything about this B&B has a wonderfull old-world feel, but its clear that Theo and Michelle have put so much work into the building and the food. It was hard to leave behind all of the fruit trees and beauty of the location to go to the beach, but the ocean was only a short drive away, and also well worth it. Overall this is the best B&B I have been to and I look forward to going back again in the future.
