Old-fashioned charm greets you everywhere you look in this 300-year-old fisherman's house, beautifully converted into a romantic cottage with private pool and terrace. The soft colours of the décor are complemented natural light that bathes the rooms.
The cottage is located very close to the beach and all the facilities of this sought-after holiday village. There is a bakery and a small supermarket close to the house so you don’t need to go far for your daily fresh bread and fruit, and your car can be parked right in front free of charge.
The cottage was completely refurbished. It contains three bedrooms, a kitchen, dining area (seats 6 people), bathroom with bathtub and shower, sitting room, private pool (4x2 m), terrace with BBQ, sink and outdoor shower. The thick walls of the traditional construction keep the house cool in summer and warm in winter.
Two beds each in the second and third bedrooms make for plenty of accommodation, and curling up with the TV or book in the sitting room, is a great way to get in the holiday mood. Start the day with coffee and honey cake by the private pool, enjoy a day at the beach or exploring the sights, then finish the evening relaxing under the fruit trees of the shady terrace.
The Casa da Praia Algarve portfolio have been personally developed by an interior and landscape designer who has lived in the Algarve for more than a decade.
The cottage is scattered with unique and eclectic pieces, gathered from her travels around the world.

When to come
The Algarve is an all year round holiday destination.
If you're not tied to the school holidays, the spring and autumn months are a lovely time to be here, and of course, much quieter than high summer.
Even December and January can be warm and sunny although the evenings are often chilly. Not all the restaurants and bars stay open in winter, but there is still plenty of choice, and a warm welcome.
