Colorful & Eclectic

A young Portuguese architect based in the Algarve has transformed this vacation home for rent in Portugal overlooking Portimao with cheerful color, whimsy and a modernists eye for Portuguese identity in design. 

A member of the architect ensemble, Studio Arte, whose mission is to create environments “that will astonish you and push your imagination forward, surpassing all expectations,” the studio is part of an ongoing initiative to revitalize city centers. 

The concept for the apartment styling is inspired by origami and the interplay of colors and geometric patterns and shapes combined with traditional Portuguese elements like the country’s famous tiles.

A sleek but peaceful space, full of natural light, this sky high penthouse’s all-in-one design is spacious but intimate with vibrant, stylish decor and a few surprises.

Description

Near to the famous Praia da Rocha and the foothills of Serra de Monchique in Portimao, this vacation home for rent in Portugal is located in a very central but quiet urban zone, which allows you to discover this unique port town and the best of the surrounding Algarve.

Designed by a member of the Portuguese firm Studioarte, it’s one of several design projects by the team who focus their practice in the region and specialize in architecture and interior design.

Offering panoramic views of the central coast line, this penthouse combines a bright palette of primary colors and bold geometric patterns with references to its Portuguese identity.

Arranged to maximize the views and natural sunlight, the space is bright and cozy yet accented with a few eclectic design pieces that give it personality. 

The eat-in kitchen and living space lead out to a spacious private terrace overlooking the city and coastline, conveniently aligned to the sunset orientation, and leading to a rooftop pool with an overview at the city and its highlights. There is one double bedroom and one bath with a sofa bed and room for up to four guests.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Wifi, cable TV, kitchen and bath amenities, laundry facilities in the building, climate control. 

AROUND

The largest city in the western Algarve, the port town of Portimao has morphed from a thriving fishing hub into a charming and typical town that serves as both a coastal resort destination and an authentic slice of Portuguese life. 

Located along the right bank of the Arade river facing Ferragudo on the opposite side, it’s a great jumping off point for the best of the Algarve’s sun drenched beaches including the famous Praia da Rocha, Praia do Vau, Praia de Alvor, Carvoeiro, Vale Centeanes and Carvalho beach. 

Don’t miss the Moorish town of Silves a short drive to the north. Forty five minutes east is Faro, the Algarve capital with both a well preserved medieval beauty and a contemporary feel. The marina and historic old town plazas are part of it’s charm and it’s directly adjacent to the beautiful Ria Formosa Preserve and Ilha Deserta.

    A nice place that’s spacious, cozy, and clean. We didn’t even get to use the nice balcony and the swimming pool downstairs. Special thanks to João who let us check in earlier and check out late.

    Great stay! Residential area, with mostly local apartment owners. Was a great base for getting to the beach, main restaurant / bar strip, old town and nearby towns. We used Uber to get most places at €3-4 a trip. 3 big supermarkets literally a few meters away. Top floor, lovely big balcony, pool. The only two things we missed were essentials like salt / pepper and washing up liquid, which we’d hoped would be there (instead of having to buy for a few nights) and the shower was a little temperamental as it would switch from shower back to bath tap when the pressure dropped. But, it was great value for us for short getaway in the school holidays (due to one friend being a teacher). Thanks João!
