Contemporary Living in a Nature Reserve Close to the Ocean!
"The best of post-modernist architecture in a breath-taking location overlooking the Ria Formosa and Ocean" - Reviewed by Rita
Set in a unique location, this 200 sqm single story Algarve home commanding 6,900 sqm of gardens was designed for guests to enjoy every moment of its wider nature reserve setting.
Adopting a post-modernist architectural style, this stunning south-facing rental home in the Algarve opens to the exterior, overlooking the Ria Formosa and the ocean, fully embracing its natural surroundings, flora, and fauna. Keep an eye out and you might be lucky enough to spot flamingos, spoonbills and other wading birds!
The pared-back neutral tones, textures, carefully curated art and artifacts are the perfect backdrops to this earth-inspired home where you can enjoy the most perfect days with family and friends.
In the garden, enjoy sheltered al fresco dining or a dive in the swimming pool with views that stretch to the mazes and marshlands of the Ria Formosa.
This is a place for nature, sun and sea lovers, close by to some genuine paradises either in the estuary or by the ocean’s extensive stretches of deserted sand. Contemplation, serenity, and comfort are the key elements of this home consciously designed to frame its natural settings.
