The space

Set in the tranquil Valverde valley, 2km from Praia da Luz and a stones throw away from Lagos town, this restored farmhouse offers apartment holiday accommodation in traditional rustic and natural surroundings.

Intentionally simple, exposed beams, traditional calçada (stone) floors, terracotta against whitewashed walls, natural wood and sloping ceilings; each apartment is delightfully furnished with an eclectic mix of regional styles and artifacts from North Africa.
