Það sem verður gert

After a brief introduction about the use of the electric bikes and the track of about 50 kilometers, we will jump right into the cycling tour starting in Silves countryside. Gently cycling among the orange groves, cork and almond trees, I will tell you more about the rural side of the region, its genuine people and their traditions. You will learn why figs, almonds, carobs and olive trees have always been so important for the region. Passing through white-washed villages we will stop for a light breakfast in a secret garden with fresh produce from the farm. After this stop we will cycle on country roads up to a panoramic point, where you will taste a delicious picnic with just baked bread, meat and cheese. After this stop we will cycle downhill on our comfortable power assisted bikes and I'll guide you to an amazing hidden lake where we will stop to contemplate the inland Algarve in all its beauty.
It's time to go back where we started, but the memories of this unique landscape will stay with you forever!

I'm the owner of the B&B Gato Preto located in Silves, right in the center of the Algarve. Me and my wife, we fell in love with the unspoiled side of Algarve in 2012 and decided to refurbish an old ruin and start a new adventure here. Since we moved to Silves, we spent many day trips cycling and walking across the small villages and the amazing landscapes still well preserved from the mass tourism of the coast. During the last 8 years, we learned a lot about the nature, the food and the people of this unique area called the "Barrocal" so today we are happy to share our passion and knowledge with our guests.

Staðsetning

We will visit many small villages connecting the inland Algarve around Silves. I will guide you off the beaten track but always on good conditions roads, through the orange groves along the path known as the "Algarvian Way". We will stop for breakfast in a secret garden and for lunch on top of a hill for a traditional Picnic. On the way back, a fantastic hidden lake will reveal its unique landscape.

First of all let me start by saying, I was a little nervous about the length of this trip. I’m not that athletic and 50 km seemed pretty far. HOWEVER, The electric bikes made the entire trip an absolute breeze! You could select how much electric assistance you wanted so if you wanted a good work out you could. Or if you wanted to not break a sweat that was also an option. The tour started at Matteo‘s absolutely gorgeous bed and breakfast, we started biking and about 10 minutes later we arrived at the secluded secret Garden for a “light” breakfast. This consisted of all local fruits, jams, coffee, bread etc. after sitting around a long table in the garden catching up as if we were old friends, we continued our trip past goat herder‘s, little cafés, olive trees, and Cork trees. Matteo would stop every few minutes and give us a nugget of history or explanation of the local plants or wildlife. A few minutes later we arrived at a local bakery where we got to watch them bake sausage sandwiches for our lunch. Then another 10 minutes of biking or so and we ended up in a beautiful grove of cork trees, where Matteo‘s wife met us with a beautifully prepared picnic lunch. After a nice long break we continued biking for a while and stopped again at a little café for espresso‘s and a chat about the regions weather and history. Then we continued and ended up back at the bed-and-breakfast. I absolutely cannot recommend this Airbnb experience enough! If you can at all make this work I would highly recommend it. This has more value than all the other experiences we took combined.

We cannot recommend this experience enough, it has been the highlight of our week in the Algarve! Matteo was a fantastic host, the routes were quiet with great views, and picking up the picnic from local stores en route was a particular highlight! Breakfast was also amazing with persimmons we picked ourselves and freshly squeezed pomegranate juice. Thank you Matteo!
