This unique and exclusive oasis in the center of the Algarve has the atmosphere of a Moroccan riad. The house-atelier of artist Eric de Bruijn, it is named Ana Ana, from the Arabic for ‘I am’. The home was created from an iconic building with industrial lines and has been converted into a remarkable resting place filled with bright natural light, unique art pieces, and cool found objects.
Every corner features a piece of the artist’s personal collection, plus other unusual details. On the second floor are five concept rooms and several lounge areas that are available for guests to use. There is also an elegant courtyard with a striking black pool.
To de Bruijn, the home is a ‘plural space’, where guests will find art in many forms: from exhibitions to gastronomic events, pop-up concepts, or artistic residences. In other words, anything can happen here.
With five bedrooms and a separate private studio, this villa for rent in Portugal can sleep up to a total of 14 guests.
