About the property

Our Modern Designed 2 Bedroom Cottage is Perfect for a Beach Break

Our modern designed 2 bedroom cottage with free high speed wifi is perfect for a beach break.

Luxurious touches such as a rainfall shower, a cosy corner for reading, and a beautiful modern kitchen area make it a great place to unwind.

It's perfectly located in the centre of Vila do Bispo in a quite street, where you'll find a small supermarket for groceries, a bank with ATM, and plenty of places to eat out near the house. The closest beaches are Cordoama, Castelejo and Barriga at a few min drive from the house.

The cottage is close to the local farmers market, shops, bars and restaurants so you don't need to go far for your daily fresh bread, fruit or to go out for a meal.

It was completely refurbished with a new kitchen, bathroom, new furniture etc... and has plenty of accommodation. Curling up with a book in the sitting room, is a great way to get in the holiday mood. Start the day with coffee and honey cake, enjoy a day at the beach or exploring the sights, then finish the evening relaxing in the seating area.

The Casa da Praia Algarve portfolio has been personally developed by an interior and landscape designer who has lived in the Algarve for more than a decade.

The cottage is scattered with unique and eclectic pieces, gathered from the owners travels from around the world.

Share a meal cooked in the peace of the house or venture out to one of the many local restaurants and bars.

For quieter evenings and undisturbed relaxation, you'll find a selection of board games, and books in several languages.

Looking for a vegetarian dining options, a vineyard or where to find almond and fig orchards? Hoping to catch a glimpse of a wild boar or a dolphin? Yearning for a hand-woven blanket or a handbag made from cork?

The property has a folder contains a sampling of our personal favourites - places to go, things to see, what to buy and what to eat.

The owner lives locally and is available to help with any problems or questions.

The Neighborhood

Vila do Bispo is a small town with older, typical Algarvian houses clustered around the 16th century church. It's set in Costa Vicentina National Park, and close to the Park de Floresta tennis and golf course.

When to come

The Algarve is an all year round holiday destination.

If you're not tied to the school holidays, the spring and autumn months are a lovely time to be here, and of course, much quieter than high summer.

Even December and January can be warm and sunny although the evenings are often chilly. Not all the restaurants and bars stay open in winter, but there is still plenty of choice, and a warm welcome.

Getting around

You will find everything you need in the village but you will need a car if you want to explore the area.

Distance Lisbon - VIla do Bispo = 320 km

Distance Faro - Vila do Bispo = 85 km

Nice holiday.

  • 5 of 5

A very convenient location for exploring the south and western Algarve coasts.

The cottage is very comfortable, and just as pictured. An left lots of materials to help us find our way around, and her restaurant recommendations were perfect!

Charming cottage in great location; and a short drive to the west coasts best beaches

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cottage. With 2 small children it had everything we needed to be comfortable. Although small, it was ideally located in a charming village and a short drive to the most amazing beaches. We spent a week exploring a different beach each day returning to the cottage for dinner and bed. Wonderfully relaxing, can't recommend it enough.

Perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

We've had a lovely stay in Vila do Bispo. The cottage is spacious enough for a family of four. Just missed our host as we were a bit delayed but all was prepared for our stay. An runs her business 'Casa del Praia' in a very professional way and the cottage we stayed in had lots of information and tips for activities in the region. Wishing you all the best An and hope to be back one day. Péronne

Lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful place to stay for us, for peace, quiet and the chance to relax and have beautiful walks in the country. It was just like the photos, nothing was exaggerated, and had even more amenities than were shown. An was welcoming, made us feel at ease and even left some little welcoming gifts! The place was comfortable, very clean and extremely well-equipped, so it was easy to feel at home. The village is quiet, has restaurants hidden away, and an organic market as well for those who want to cook. We have already recommended this place to friends, it was very enjoyable. Thank you, An!

Very cool & stylish in great location

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten einen sehr schönen und entspannten Aufenthalt in dem schnuckeligen und sehr hübsch eingerichteten Häuschen von An. Das Dörfchen liegt mitten im Nationalpark und ist noch nicht so vom Tourismus heimgesucht, wie die die Nachbarorte.

Thank you for the very nice stay! :)
