The Property

Spectacular 4 bedroom, architect designed villa in the Algarve.


View property details

Designed by an internationally acclaimed architect, the villa is surrounded by 2500 square metres of land, olive, cork and almond trees, wild flowers and just the sound of peaceful nature.

The eco-sustainable home was built using local materials such as wood from North Portugal and local natural stones for the sinks, kitchen tops and benches.

Ceramics, pottery and blankets were also sourced locally by Casa Cubista in Olhão.

The garden was designed by botanical architects Sigmetum in Lisbon who collected seeds from the wild, grew them in their own nursery and replanted them at the Casa.
Only local and native plants from Algarve were used to create the garden. Local herbs and aromatic plants are available to guests for cooking, infusions or aromatic treatments.

The fire place in the living room was designed in 1965 by architects Alfonso Mila and Federico Correa creating a strong centerpiece.

The 4 bedroom villa opens itself to its surroundings through the use of large windows and doors, rooftop terraces, multiple patios and a large courtyard that contains a semi-enclosed pool.

There are 4 double bedrooms en-suite and the villa can sleep up to 6 guests.

The living room is on the upper level and is connected to the garden at the back of the house offering stunning views of surrounding nature reserve. From the living room you can access a very spacious rooftop terrace (100 m2) with stunning views of the surrounding nature.

With several terraces, patios and decks on both levels, there is plenty of room for relaxation, soaking the sun in, al fresco dining or gazing at the stars.
