Embrace your inner artist with a stay in this beautiful townhouse in the heart of Portimão. From the walls, floors and shelves to the studio and living spaces, every detail of this home is immersed in the creative spirit of its owner. And from the moment of arrival, you’ll want to pause and admire the curated collection of objects, paintings and books that make this home truly unique. Find yourself floating on a wave of inspiration through the expansive living and dining room, take a seat at the desk, pick up a paintbrush or pour yourself a drink and make your way onto the terrace. And while you might feel like you’ve been transported to a Riad in Marrakech, you’re still very much in the heart of the Algarve. With its soft light, terracotta tones and swimming pool this is the perfect setting for total relaxation. And when the sun begins to set, make your way to the roof terrace for golden hour drinks and barbecue meals that linger long into the evening. Back inside, you’ll find each of the six bedrooms equipped with air conditioning and everything you could dream of for a restorative night’s sleep – including Bluetooth headphones should you wish to listen to the soothing sounds of a bedtime playlist. And when you’re refreshed and ready to explore, it’s just a five-minute stroll to the historic centre, while the beach and harbour are also within walking distance.
