Our Locals' Tip: A favorite with visitors to this area, the Albergaria is to be transformed into an amazing boutique hotel, with the most romantic views imaginable.
Albergaria Nossa Senhora da Rocha is an elegantly rustic Inn in the heart of the Algarve. The hotel is situated near the magical beaches of Senhora da Rocha (Porches) and in walking distance of the endless beach of Armação de Pêra, where fishermen still go out to the sea every day, and is ideally located in the centre of this southern province. The property boasts breathtaking views over the Atlantic Ocean and was named after the fishermen's chapel close by, that is dedicated to "Our Lady of the Rock". At the foot of the chapel, a quiet sandy beach stretches out to both sides, embraced by rocks.
In 2013 the hotel will be transformed into a 5* hotel with 15 luxury suites while still retaining the familiar friendly attention to detail as before.
