casa luum offers 4 double bedrooms for maximum 6 guests
once an old ruin at the end of a dirt road, this stunning villa is completely encompassed by nature, nestled among hundreds of olive, almond and cork trees.
designed by pedro domingos arquitectos, the same architect as our sister house casa agostos,
the modern architecture is dominated by strong lines, white walls and concrete, creating a bold effect in the natural environment.
the construction opens itself to its surroundings through the use of large windows and doors, rooftop terraces, multiple patios and a large courtyard that contains a semi-enclosed pool.
local materials were sourced for the handmade doors, windows and shutters, in addition to the use of natural stone for the pool, kitchen counters, sinks and benches.
located in the algarve, known for the ria formosa nature reserve, beaches, wine and ceramics, there are many attractions to make it a perfect destination for a holiday with friends or family.
the 4 bedrooms are modern and minimal yet refined in design and decor.
the white walls and concrete floors create a neutral palette, with the addition of wood and textiles to add warmth.
the kitchen features a large cooking island, while the outdoor patio space is strategically placed nearby for enjoying meals outside.
the relaxing sound of water from the fountain makes it the perfect place to hang out, read a book or just enjoying the sun.
on the upper level, the living room connects with the back garden and a huge rooftop terrace with stunning views of the surrounding nature reserve.

casa agostos offers 3 double bedrooms for maximum 6 guests
casa agostos is situated in the hilly hinterland of the algarve region in southern portugal, near the picturesque village of santa bárbara de nexe.
between the green knotty olive-trees the long-extended building shines brightly in white.
once rundown and neglected, this traditional house has been rebuilt and extended by an annex.
the original structure features three bedrooms and two bathrooms, while new wing houses a large living room with a fireplace.
the old and new buildings are connected by the central entrance area.
there is a seamless flow between the rooms and large windows open them out to the garden.
the minimalist interior design, the concrete flooring and linear shapes combine to create a pleasant modern ambience.
the house has several patios, terraces, and a rooftop terrace with beautiful views over the hills of the surrounding nature reserve.
the 15-meter-long pool in the garden is built into a large concrete block, which partly sinks into the ground and defines the border of the property.
