Beautifully situated in the UNESCO-protected Ria Formosa Lagoon in the Eastern Algarve in Portugal, the two-bedroom houses on the Casa Flor de Sal estate are the perfect setting in which to enjoy sea views, sunshine, beaches, wildlife and stargazing.
If you want to experience the real Algarve - with its deserted beaches, diverse bird life, delicious local food, outdoor pursuits, unspoilt natural surroundings and tranquil atmosphere - then Casa Flor de Sal is just the place. The 250 year old estate is home to a collection of properties which range in size but all retain an air of timeless simplicity and serenity. In the gardens you can sunbathe by the swimming pool and soak up the peace and privacy. Bikes are available for your use (no charge) and there are a variety of onsite activities which won't cost you a penny - flamingo spotting, yoga, batwatching, stargazing, massage, crab races and more. And nearby there are sandy beaches, cycling trails, local restaurants and traditional Portuguese towns. It’s utterly heavenly.
The estate is located in the pristine Eastern Algarve, which is known for its sandy island beaches, tidal lagoons and wildlife. The Ria Formosa Natural Park is home to huge numbers of birds, fish, butterflies, reptiles and small mammals, activities like walking, cycling, kayaking, boating, sailing, paddle boarding and surfing are all popular here, and there are countless beautiful beaches nearby. Or you could explore the promenades, cafes and markets of Fuseta, the cobbled streets and Moorish architecture of Olhão, the restaurants of Moncarapacho and the picturesque 13th century castle in Tavira.
On site there are three private car parks with total capacity for 14 cars. Faro Airport is just 20 minutes away and airport transfers can be arranged. Alternatively you can fly to Seville (2 hours) or Lisbon (2.5 hours).

On the estate there are four two-bedroom houses which vary in size but are all individually decorated in a fusion of Danish design and Portuguese tradition.

The larger houses - Azure and Spoonbill - are very spacious (110m2) with two bedrooms, a living area and a fully-equipped kitchen with dining table for six. Ever house has air-conditioning, free WiFi, a Smart TV, a Bluetooth sound system and a selection of books, games and toys. There are also a few one bedroom houses for those who don't require a second bedroom.
