Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Vila do Bispo - Casa Da Praia Algarve

Our gorgeous open plan selfcatering holiday home with free wifi is perfect for a romantic break, or can be booked together with the nearby 3-bed apartment to accommodate parties of up to eight people.

Luxurious touches such as a rainfall shower, a cosy corner for reading, and a beautiful modern kitchen area make it a great place to stay.

It's perfectly located in the centre of Vila do Bispo, where you'll find a small supermarket for groceries, a couple of banks with ATM, and plenty of places to eat out. The closest beaches are Cordoama, Castelejo and Barriga at a few min drive from the house.

The cottage is close to the local farmers market, shops, bars and restaurants so you don't need to go far for your daily fresh bread, fruit or to go out for a meal.

The cottage was completely refurbished in 2014 and plenty of accommodation, Curling up with a book in the sitting room, is a great way to get in the holiday mood. Start the day with coffee and honey cake, enjoy a day at the beach or exploring the sights, then finish the evening relaxing in the seating area.

The Casa da Praia 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 the owners travels to South Africa, London, Cape Cod, Majorca, Ibiza, Morocco, New York, Holland, Belgium, etc ...

Share a meal cooked in the peace of the house or venture out to one of the many local restaurants and bars.

For quieter evenings and undisturbed relaxation, you'll find a selection of board games and books in several languages.

Looking for vegetarian dining options, a vineyard, or where to find almond and fig orchards? Hoping to catch a glimpse of a wild boar or a dolfin? Yearning for a hand-woven blanket or a handbag made from cork?

The property has a folder contains a sampling of the owners personal favourites - places to go, things to see, what to buy and what to eat.

The owner lives locally and is available to help with any problems or questions.

The Neighborhood

Vila do Bispo is a small town with older, typical Algarvian houses clustered around the 16th century church. It's set in Costa Vicentina National Park, and close to the Park de Floresta tennis and golf course.

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.

Getting around

You will find everything you need in the village but you will need a car if you want to explore the area.

The house information is listed in the property. Pets not allowed.

Distance Lisbon - VIla do Bispo = 320 km

Distance Faro - VIla do Bispo = 85 km

Great little apartment

  • 4 of 5

This was a great little converted garage apartment in Vila do Bispo. It was well located for many of our adventures in the Algarve and there was a wonderful traditional restaurant literally two blocks away. We definately needed a car to get around but managed to see Lagos, Salema, Sagres, Silves, and points in between during our week stay; everything was very convenient. There is also a daily market (except Sunday) and a bakery within walking distance so I became addicted to daily croissants. The apartment is small but it was clean with a nice bathroom and well appointed furnishings. The bed was extremely comfortable! It was a quiet neighborhood and absolutely safe. The most marvelous beach, Castelejo beach, is a very short drive away and it is gorgeous with a wonderful restaurant you must visit for dinner at sundown! Stunning! An was a wonderful host and helped "guide" us in when we became lost on arrival. She left plenty of information regarding the area, things to do, places to go and food to try. Bossa Nova Pizza in Sagres is another great place to eat if you are in Sagres.

Perfect verblijf.

  • 5 of 5

Het was een zeer aangenaam verblijf in de Algarve. We hebben genoten van de mooie stranden, musea´s, kastelen, het lekkere eten en geode wijn en het aangename weer. De bevolking is heel hulpzaam en vriendelijk. De rustige omgeving was voor ons een pluspunt. Onze dagen waren te kort... We hebben een mooie vakantie gehad. Bedankt voor de goede zorgen. Groetjes en tot volgend jaar.

Clean and compact

  • 5 of 5

A very clean and compact apartment, with the most comfortable bed. The nearby beaches are some of the most stunning (and quietest) that we've ever encountered, not to mention the incredible weather. We had a fantastic week and would thoroughly recommend it

Stylish and welcoming, a home from home.

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautifully considered and makes the most of the petit dimensions. You have everything you need. The space is comfortable, filled with fun style elements and is easy to settle into as soon as you walk in.

Everything about the property, the area and the proximity to beaches, towns, forest, walks, Lisbon etc adds wonderful value to the stay.

This was our second visit and we'll return again. Enjoy!
