Located in the center of the town of Lagoa in the western part of the sun-drenched Algarve, this vacation home for rent in Portugal is a striking fusion of sophisticated urban living adapted from a historic residence. A former farmhouse built in 1895, the old quinta was transformed by the architects and designers of studioarte with a contemporary eye for design and great respect for traditional Portuguese architecture.
As soon as you step into the house, you enter a world of serenity. The south-facing tropical gardens tie in seamlessly with the stylish interiors offering optimal privacy within an urban context.
The living areas are all on one floor and feature a lounge and media room, sitting room, a modern fully equipped kitchen and a spacious dining room for up to eight people. There are three bedrooms, two of which have en-suite bathrooms. The interiors are designed with an exceptional collection of contemporary art, design objects and vintage furnishings, creating a richly detailed atmosphere in which every urban globetrotter will feel at home.
The walled gardens are a tranquil tropical themed oasis with a pool, an outdoor kitchen and dining area and cozy lounge areas where you’ll forget you’re in the heart of the city.
This is a year round retreat that takes advantage of the Algarve’s exceptional weather, natural beauty and cultural attractions.

Lagoa’s charming old town center of whitewashed houses and cobbled stone streets is dominated by the main church and centered around village and coastal life. The house is within walking distance of restaurants, shops and cafes and ten minutes from the beaches and fishing village of Carvoeiro, a bustling coastal town. Some of the best beaches in the Western Algarve are close by including: Benagil Beach, Albanderia, Mariniha and Armacao de Pera, Vale Centeanes and Carvalho beach. The nearby resort town of Portimao is to the west on the bank of the Arade river facing Ferragudo on the opposite bank. Don’t miss the Moorish town of Silves a short drive to the north.
