A weekend break.
Me & my bestie for her birthday.
The garden pool with a relaxed, secluded deck.
Simple, rustic, clean bedroom decor.
Our mini studio with a peeping window.
Perfect for party hosting, the dining room is surrounded by restored ceramic tiles.
View of the installation in the courtyard.
Fresh Jasmine every morning is a lovely touch.
Cascading terracotta views for the grounds.
Try some local wine in the courtyard café and team it with a plate of fine charcuterie.
Walk or take a tram and do some exploring!
One of the many classic antique pieces
of furniture dotted around the ‘hotel’.
A place to just sit.
Can’t miss the great big red door!
Highs + Lows
A wonderful piece of restored architecture that is a must-see.
Your stay is so relaxed you feel you actually own the place.
No TV which is a good thing!
The interiors are true to Portuguese tradition and style.
Wifi doesn’t get through the old stone walls (probably a good thing too)
Our suite at the front was a little noisy due to the courtyard café, request one of the hidden suites towards the back.
