Away from the crowds yet near Carvoeiro and Algarve’s most pristine beaches, Praia de Marinha and Praia de Benagil, Casa Mú is a luxury villa overlooking the Atlantic and surrounded by nature.
Solar panels provide eco-friendly power to the steel-framed home, and every drop of water is biologically purified and reused in the garden. The natural polish that comes from concrete and stone complements each piece of recycled wood furniture.
After a delicious meal in the kitchen, with its Alentejo marble countertops and dishes handmade by local Portuguese craftsmen, it’s just a few steps outside and into the gleaming pool. Dry off or take a nap in the lounge beds and beanbags.
“We have been in love with Portugal for several years. The quiet lifestyle and the hospitality of the Portuguese immediately appealed to us,” says owner Frank.
With its open spaces and a palette inspired by nature, this villa in the heart of Algarve is a dream-like private haven.
