We love this far west region of the Algarve with it’s world class surfing spots and wild windswept coastline, and this cool modern beach house right on the dunes is the perfect family friendly holiday house to enjoy the seaside.
Carrapateira Beach House Faro, Portugal
Located along the Atlantic shore of Portugal’s far west Algarve region, this modern family home is situated within the windswept dunes with sweeping coastal and mountain views.
Completed in 2012 and designed by architect Frederico Valsassina in a straightforward linear composition, the contemporary design is perfectly in tune with the landsacpe. A departure in tone from the traditional homes of the Algarve, it’s a modern take on the classic beach house with an indoor-outdoor design that invites the beauty of nature in. The open-plan layout flows in seamless transitions with a central living and dining areas that fully opens out to the terrace adjacent to the state of the art kitchen. Whitewashed inside and out, the home is infused with natural light from slide away glass and windows that frame the views with simple contemporary furnishings and decor. With five bedrooms and a large media/playroom, the house is ideal for families or groups and can comfortably sleep up to fourteen guests. The ouside terrace faces the shore with magnificent sunsets over the dunes and a poolside lounge perfect for soaking it all in.
Daily housekeeping included. Wifi throughout, TV, audio system and security system, laundry facilities. Playroom with ping pong table and games. Guest parking.
