This luxurious vacation rental with a fabulous pool is located near Faro in the spectacular Algarve region of Portugal. The architectural masterpiece can accommodate up to six lucky guests within an assortment of modern and stylish bedrooms.

The living areas come with a minimalistic design and feature a lot of ceramics, pottery, and blankets that were locally made, as well as a sublime fireplace that was designed in 1965 by architects Alfonso Mila and Federico Correa. The hosts even had all the doors, windows, and shutters handmade by an architect with local wood from the north of Portugal. The kitchen area comes with everything guests will need to cook up some delicious meals and the locally sourced natural stone kitchen counter only adds more elegance to this incredible retreat.

Outside, guests will find the resplendent garden which contains numerous local and native plants from the Algarve and a lot of local herbs and aromatic plants that guests are welcome to use for cooking, infusions, or aromatic treatments.
