Our gorgeous open plan studio is perfect for a romantic break, or can be booked together with the nearby 3-bed apartment to accommodate parties of up to eight people.

Luxurious touches such as a rainfall shower, a cosy corner for reading, and a beautiful modern kitchen area.

It's perfectly located in the centre of Vila do Bispo, where you'll find a small supermarket for groceries, a couple of banks, and plenty of places to eat out. The closest beaches are Cordoama, Castelejo and Barriga.

The cottage is close to the local farmers market, shops, bars and restaurants. Some of the best beaches in the Algarve are within a few minutes' drive.

The cottage was completely refurbished in 2014 and plenty of accommodation, curling up with a book in the sitting room, is a great way to get in the holiday mood. Start the day with coffee and honey cake, enjoy a day at the beach or exploring the sights, then finish the evening relaxing in the seating area.

The Casa da Praia portfolio have been personally developed by an interior and landscape designer who has lived in the Algarve for more than a decade.

The cottage is scattered with unique and eclectic pieces, gathered from the owners travels to South Africa, London, Cape Cod, Majorca, Ibiza, Morocco, New York, Holland, and Belgium.

Share a meal cooked in the peace of house, or venture out to one of the many local restaurants and bars.

For quieter evenings and undisturbed relaxation, you'll find a selection of board games, and books in several languages.

Looking for vegetarian dining options, a vineyard, or where to find almond and fig orchards? Hoping to catch a glimpse of a wild boar or a kingfisher? Yearning for a hand-woven blanket or a handbag made from cork?

The Neighborhood

Vila do Bispo is a small town with older, typical Algarvian houses clustered around the 16th century church. It's set in Costa Vicentina National Park, and close to the Park de Floresta tennis and golf course.

When to come

The Algarve is an all year round holiday destination.

If you're not tied to the school holidays, the spring and autumn months are a lovely time to be here, and of course, much quieter than high summer.

Even December and January can be warm and sunny although the evenings are often chilly. Not all the restaurants and bars stay open in winter, but there is still plenty of choice, and a warm welcome.

Getting around

You will find everything you need in the village but you will need a car if you want to explore the area.
