An introduction to Casa Lagoa

How would you describe Casa Lagoa in a nutshell?

Casa Lagoa is an urban farmhouse on the main street of Lagoa just a short drive from the beautiful beaches of the Algarve.

What was the inspiration and story behind Casa Lagoa?

Lagoa was established as a small town at the centre of an agricultural area and many large properties were built as urban farmhouses or for storage. Casa Lagoa has a prime location on the main street and was owned by a single family for more than a century.

When we bought the property, it was originally intended as my private residence. Some friends asked if they could stay when I wasn’t there and due to its central location on the Algarve, they thought renting it out would be a fantastic idea.

How would you describe the interior design and atmosphere of Casa Lagoa?

Casa Lagoa is quite minimalistic, both inside and out. It’s a typical Algarve farmhouse in many ways and a bit formal at the same time. As we designed it as a private house, it has a personal touch and combines paintings we selected with chandeliers from the old owners. When you enter the house, it’s like a time journey — I would describe it as bohemian-vintage but still very Portuguese.

Something that was important to us was that the house was very comfortable, so there’s central heating and a fireplace. It’s a “no-worry” home and feels quite luxurious because of the finishes.

To you personally, what makes the house so special?

What we hear back from guests is that its village setting is what makes it so special, without being at all noisy. You can live the Portuguese lifestyle but still have privacy. I’ve often described it as a “monastery of silence” — once you are in the house and open the doors to the garden, you just see nature and experience calmness.

Casa Lagoa rooms & rates

On one side of the house is a garage, which is now used as a storage and laundry room, although you can also park a small car inside. You enter along the main corridor in the centre of the house, which is roughly divided into four sections.

There’s a fireplace and a TV room on one side and a dining room on the other, along with a large bathroom and the kitchen. On the left hand side at the back of the house is the master bedroom, which leads out onto the garden. Here you’ll find two additional ensuite bedrooms and a plunge pool, all of which is surrounded by a large wall for privacy.

Things to do in Algarve & Lagoa

  • Art / Culture
  • Shopping / Markets
  • Golf
  • Hiking
  • Boat trips

There are lots of golf courses nearby, plus other sporting activities like sailing, cycling and swimming. Lagoa is a very active town and not super hot, with fresh ocean breezes making it ideal for walking in the public parks. You can also rent bikes and ride the flat trails that lead to the nearby towns or to the Arade River.

The location of Casa Lagoa

Lagoa is around 25 minutes drive from Faro Airport (there is free parking in the streets). The town is located in the centre of the Algarve, so we’re just a few minutes from Portimão, Silves and Porches. It’s very convenient for shopping, with lots of supermarkets nearby, and we’re within walking distance of some very good restaurants. Casa Lagoa is often described as an “urban beach townhouse” as it is so close to the coast, with around 20 beaches within 5 to 10 minutes drive away.

Lagoa is a real discovery — when you are in the centre, you’ll see fantastic old buildings and squares. It’s a labyrinth of history! Lagoa was built around agriculture and it’s a town you really can’t compare with others nearby. Not only is it close to lots of golf courses and some amazing coastal walks, but it’s not a mass tourist area and it’s really just the local people at night.

When is the best time to visit Algarve?

I think that from March to the end of June and then from September to the end of November are the best times to visit. But because of the house’s design and its garden, it can really be enjoyed throughout the year. We see a lot of demand for winter stays and, of course, summer is always busy on the Algarve.
