How would you describe Ana Ana Artistic Habitat in a nutshell?
Ana Ana is a place that combines hospitality, style, comfort and art in its many forms. It is the house-atelier of the artist, creative director and interior designer Eric de Bruijn.
What’s the story behind Ana Ana Artistic Habitat and what was the inspiration to open it?
For Eric, innovative concepts have always been of huge importance in his professional life, and Ana Ana is the physical representation of it. For several years he lived in the countryside, and Ana Ana is the-coming-back-to-city-life, where he wants to inspire and meet other creatives.
How would you describe the atmosphere and the interior design of Ana Ana Artistic Habitat?
Ana Ana is constantly changing. White plays definitely a huge role in the house and makes every room an invitation to dive in and disconnect. Indoor and outdoor life are key. It’s urban artistic living, with a touch of boho.
To you personally, what is so special about Ana Ana Artistic Habitat?
Ana Ana has large spaces with different possibilities. You can find moments of complete privacy even when you are in a group. (Can’t wait to show you our Netflix room.) And the house is also an art gallery — we like to call it Artistic Habitat.
It is a unique place, designed and curated to make you feel good.
Please tell us about the food.
Algarve is widely known for its amazing gastronomy. From extremely tasty and fresh grilled fish to a wide range of seafood, you will have a lot of fun in Portimão’s restaurants. Under the old bridge is where you can find some of the best ones. If you’re looking for fine dining, a couple of Michelin star restaurants can be found in the area as well. Bonus tip: Dona Ana (only a few metres from Ana Ana) will serve you amazing, tasty, honest, comfy food. We love it.
Is Ana Ana Artistic Habitat best suited for couples, families, groups? What’s your policy on kids?
Because it is a big house, Ana Ana is perfect for families and couples or friends who want to share a house for their holidays. Kids are welcome, but you have to take care because of the stairs. Extra beds for kids are available.
