Casa Arte is a beautiful villa rental for sunny holidays with friends and family located on two hectares of private land and minutes away from deserted beaches on the Algarve.
How would you describe Villa Antonia in a nutshell?
Villa Antonia is a very private countryside estate with views of gentle rolling hills in a nature reserve and picturesque valleys leading to the sea. A tucked away authentic Portuguese hideaway for family and friends who enjoy privacy and seclusion as much as uncovering Algarve’s manifold facets.
What is the story behind Villa Antonia, what was your inspiration to create it?
Most of the 2ha land was formerly agricultural land surrounding the farmhouse of 130 years of age. The farmhouse was rebuilt and transformed keeping the most essential features from its layout to the central fireplace.
When it became our family’s vacation home we planted over 300 olive trees. In recent years Villa Antonia was reimagined for guests to create the quintessential Algarve holiday home.
How would you describe the atmosphere and the interior design of Villa Antonia?
The property and its surroundings are very authentic, it breathes ease — comfort, freedom and tranquility. The building’s traditional foundations, white-washed walls and bamboo ceiling is accentuated by the inviting decor and furnishings. There is a balanced interplay of local artistry alongside worldly collectibles. By respecting origins and traditions we nurture a cultural and spiritual connection to the place.
To you personally, what is so special about Villa Antonia?
I love the natural elevation on our land, which overlooks the surrounding ground towards the sea and rolling hills. The Quinta's white-washed walls standing drenched in sunlight against the open sky — it is the natural simplicity that speaks to all my senses; it is rooted in tradition and nature while reflecting a very personal style while instilling an immediate sense of belonging and sparking inspiration.
