contemporary place to stay

The Addresses is a collection of holiday houses with a focus on architecture and design. Casa Um is a secluded house made for friends or families who like to gather in the more than inviting living room, or around the swimming pool.
All the houses of The Addresses are special in terms of design, history and location. The idea is to create hidden houses where guests can recharge their batteries and are in proximity of nature. Casa Um used to be a 19th century farm house, sleeps 8 and stands out because their retake on Portuguese architecture. Atelier Rua, also known for Pensao Agricola and Hospedaria, created two different levels. The communal areas are on the upper level while the bedrooms are on the lower level. Large windows look out on the surrounding nature.
Atelier Rua worked closely together with the Belgian designers of Studio Stories. You probably notice some Belgian design items such as Bea Mombaers sofa for Serax or the Muller Van Severen cutting boards. Marble has a leading role too: not only in the kitchen, but mostly in the bathrooms who all have a view of the nature around the property. Special mention to Mario, the concierge, who welcomes you with a kind heart and has lots of recommendations for you to see in nearby Tavira and the rest of the Algarve with the eyes of a local.
