Casa da Luz
Townhouse with patio, plunge pool, sunny terraces and dramatic views over Olhão.
Newly restored, this expansive 18th century home features a bowered dining patio, private pool and gorgeous suntrap terraces. Sleeps 6-8.
Casa da Luz is a step away from the Igreja Matriz church, making Olhão’s famous seafront markets but a short stroll away. A friendly ferry or water taxi ride transports you from the esplanade to the dreamy, timeless islands of Culatra and Armona where peace, beaches and sea breezes are yours for the asking. Most of our guests do without a car.
The ground floor features a huge food lover’s kitchen which opens out onto the patio and to the enormous vaulted living area with its rustic table for 16, and its custom-built sofa from where all the tribe can hang out and enjoy the sound system.
There’s also a guest loo and an en-suite bedroom on this floor.
Upstairs finds two more lovely en-suite bedrooms and a separate utility room. Step onto the terrace and there’s another en-suite bedroom, 2 pairs of sun loungers and the small pool. Above this floor there’s another suntrap terrace with bench seating; it runs the length of the house. Stairs tiled with reclaimed Santa Catarina terracotta lead to the shaded top terrace, which offers both soaring views over Olhão to the sea and very comfy wraparound loungers for you take in (and shoot!) the breeze.
Casa da Luz has been designed to take best advantage of both Olhão’s stunning sunshine and her welcome sea breezes. There’s also underfloor heating (and fibre optic broadband wi-fi) throughout the house, making it cosy, comfortable and practical all year round.
Rates are in Euro for the current year.
