Portugal’s Moorish heritage is reflected in Casa Algarve, with its whitewashed walls and terracotta roof tiles keeping things cool and quiet  – two words that happen to be the overriding design ethos. The contemporary, minimalist decor creates a casual, calm and cosy mood. Though a highway is nearby, you’ll barely notice: the home is in the middle of a two-acre private estate, surrounded by small farms. When (/if) you tire of your seclusion, the western Algarve awaits. The beach is a quick drive from the property, and the emerald-water-edged Ponta da Piedade cliffs are only slightly further afield. If it’s the cultural highlights of more than 2,000 years of Iberian history you’re after, the town of Lagos is just a hop, skip and a jump away.
