Why we like this house
An exciting house with many charming details, like the staircase that leads from the roof terrace directly into the pool, or the exceptional fireplace in the living room. We like the fact that so much emphasis is placed on sustainability and ecology. Thanks to its good insulation, the house does not need air conditioning. The furnishings including the beds, crockery and linens are made by local Portuguese labels.
This house is great for
Holidays with family and friends, away from the hustle and bustle of the Algarve but close to their attractions.
