The Location

This year, due to feedback from our clients wanting to get away to sunnier climes, we have added a carefully designed holiday on Portugal’s Algarve. This gorgeous coast has attracted winter sun-seekers for decades, largely appealing to those that have sought peace, authenticity, and beautiful sandy beaches. Away from its major resorts it retains a delightfully sleepy, lost in time, largely rural ambience, and features a number of small-scale, yet fascinating, historic cities. We aim to make this holiday as accessible as possible for people with dementia by the introduction of a number of adaptations and of course with the special attention to detail you have come to expect from us.

Your Accommodation

The base for this holiday is a beautifully restored farmhouse, Casal da Eira, which sits just outside the rural community of São Bras, in the heart of the region’s principal area for cork production, and only 12 miles from the coast. The English-speaking and warmly hospitable Dutch owners, Bert & Els, live in their own wing of the building with their affectionate dog Keira and three free-roaming cats. First renovated in 1877, Casal da Eira has 6 en-suite bedrooms which can be made up as doubles or twins; and an apartment, all of which are on the ground floor. It has a sizeable lounge/dining room, a kitchen, an honesty bar, and a spacious terrace with a long table for eating ‘al fresco’. There are garden areas to both the front and rear of the main building, the rear garden containing a large grassed area, multiple fruit trees, and a swimming pool and sun lounging area. Meal arrangements during the holiday will vary and will undoubtedly add to the experience. Breakfast is included each day at the Casal and can be taken outside on the terrace if the weather allows. Els’s homemade jams, made from fruits from the Casal’s own gardens feature on the continental breakfast buffet. Lunches are a mixture of picnics and light restaurant meals, and dinners will be prepared at the Casal by a visiting chef or members of the Dementia Adventure team.
