Wine tasting experience
We are delighted to be able to offer a very special and exclusive service for our clients with a private wine tasting experience at your villa with sommelier Nuno.
Using only Portuguese red wines from the Quinta da Tor vineyard, native from the Loule district. All the wines are produced and bottled in the vineyard of Quinta da Tor.
Following the wine tasting, Nuno had a special treat up his sleeve which was a mystery tasting to finish the presentation, served with cubes of rich dark chocolate. The mystery will remain our secret so that if you would like to experience this great event in your own villa, you will have to wait and see. A wonderful holiday experience!
The cost for this experience is €30 per person, with a minimum of 4 people. The maximum is 12 people (for larger groups please make a special request)
Speak to the team at The Real Algarve to make your reservation. Hurry though as availability will be limited during the summer months!
We understand that your little one’s safety is your biggest concern. That is why we have teamed up with a company in The Algarve that provides the safest swimming pool fence for protection of babies, toddlers, small children and pets.
Babysecur is a system that is 100% adaptable to any pool fencing situation without compromising safety, pool access or landscaping requirements, so our owners are happy for clients to have these assembled to ensure that you can relax and not have to be worrying about their safety the whole holiday. A villa holiday is your time to chill, so this is something we always recommend to our clients with little ones!
Babysecur’s fences are designed to prevent children from climbing as they do not present any foot hold or firm handrail. The gates are key lockable and self-closing which operate with magnetic latch and lock. The exclusive BABYClick latch is very easily operated by an adult, using both hands, but children lack the height, strength and dexterity to open it.
