21st century chic meets 19th century charm.
Countryside accommodations in the Algarve tend to be rustic, and relatively simple in taste, but the Vila Valverde is a notable exception to the rule
Here is a place that takes a 19th century manor house and boldly mixes it up with boutique style contemporary design using steel, wood and glass to good effect. The end result is a combination of elegance and modernity, all set in 5 hectares of lovely gardens replete with orange trees, pond and its own spring.
The views of the Bay of Praia da Luz are not at all bad either, so those looking for a relaxing place in the sun with a dash of modern sophistication, this could be the place for you. The interior is indeed pure modern, with light colours and straight lines setting the scene for a relaxing and comfortable atmosphere within a trendy setting.
Design is everywhere and much of it is aimed at creating the idea of much space as possible. Little tricks in this regard include some rooms having a glass wall between them and the bathrooms. Talking of space, the Vila Valverde really does have a tardis like quality to it. As you come along the driveway, it looks a relatively small place, but once inside this idea is immediately dispelled. Rooms and public areas are all large. Being only some 800 metres from Praia da Luz and within easy reach of Lagos (one of the Algarve’s least spoilt towns, is a further bonus.
Finally, please note that the reception of the Vila Valverde closes at 21:00.
