Charming by name, charming by nature: family-owned Colegio Charm House woos hearts as smoothly as a doting lover with handwritten notes, fresh-out-the-oven cakes and oh-so-dreamy interiors. Housed in an 18th-century palace turned Catholic boys school, the building’s most recent iteration comes thanks to hotelier duo Cristina and Josè who have bestowed each space with pleasingly personal touches; rooms are individually decorated with a smattering of curious antiques, while communal spaces are adorned with artwork and trinkets collected on the couple’s travels to African and beyond. Spend sun-dappled days along the poolside deck, be delighted by the restaurant’s pot-luck Portuguese fare or enjoy a classic cocktail on the upper terrace as the rooftops of Tavira stretch out.
