About Dulce Fernandes
I am a photographer living in New York. I grew up in Faro and Algarve is my home, no matter how far I travel or how long I stay away.
Dulce Fernandes purchased this villa in 2011
Why Dulce Fernandes chose Sao Bras de Alportel region
Casa da Encosta offers a relaxing setting, away from the crowded touristic areas, and an authentic experience of the Algarve. At the same time, it is close enough to the seashore to go to the beach everyday, if you are as much of a beach lover as I am.
What makes this villa unique
I renovated Casa da Encosta completely and I made sure to use local materials and fixtures, including locally-made terracotta floor tiles and custom-made carpentry work.
Things I love about Casa da Encosta: the birds chirping, the sheep that walk past my door with their shepard, all the sunlight coming through the windows, the almond tree flowers in the spring, the stars in the sky in the warm summer nights, grilling fish and peppers outside, relaxing by the fireplace in the cold winter nights, seeing plants grow in the vegetable garden, hiking the surrounding hills.
