We took a week to explore the south od Portugal. Our holiday got shaked by fires that occured close by Aljezur, but as I always say, everytging happens for a reason and thta gave us the chance to disover different places.
> day 1 Portimao & Ferragudo
Sardina festival in Portimao, a once per year event that happened to be when we were there, perfect to get in the mood eating Sardina & potatoes.
We booked a room in Hotel Aldeia Portimao, super cute room, restaurant with Live music and good tapas to share.
in the morning we went to Ferragudo, and we had a breakfast at Brunch in Rio it’s okay nothing too special but you can enjoy there an Acai
Praia de Torrado, there is a Fancy restaurant where we didn’t go but it looked really good calles Rei das praias
Lunch in Armazém Integral super cute place to enjoy a vegetarian lunch, they also have a shop with a nice selection of local & healthy products.

After that you can give a little drive to go to Ceramico paradiso for your ceramic shopping
Apart from this place we were not a big fan of Lagos, too busy and croweded in August
> Day 6-7 ALJEZUR
We book our stay at Lemon lodge an off the grid place, we stayed 2 night in the tent. A goregous room, open on nature, where I have been recording some of the yoga videos available on the subscription. This place is made with love and feels like heaven, you shower outside with the sound of the birds and you can enjoy your dinner with the dogs of the place that are super nice & friendly.
They also offer ice bath experience & guiding meditation.
If you want to disconnect to reconnect more with yourself that the place to go !
To eat close by:
Koyo - Coffee roaster & nice pastries
If you wanna make your own groceries Fruitaria de Rogil has a super nice selection of local veggies & cheese.
