A lovely farmhouse, beautifully revamped, with playground, pool and modern eco suites. Bike to beaches on the Algarve's west coast

Read guest comments

This west coast deserves visitors, not developers; turísmo rural is the answer. Rebuilt with imagination and eco awareness, the Casa is a reconstructed, much extended farmhouse, run by charming owner José, a retired civil servant with excellent English (and seven dogs!). It's a wonderful summer retreat, with little outdoor sitting areas shielded by whitewashed buttresses, and, alongside the waterlily'd lake, a super big pool. There's a grassed and fenced playground with swings and a slide, and heaps of bamboos and trees; the whole place sparkles inside and out. Now a new building completes the horseshoe layout, holding four superb suites: sitting/dining rooms, kitchenettes and bathrooms below, and bedrooms on the mezzanine: contemporary, fun. The older rooms have a Moroccan feel with their colourful cushions and rugs; most have French windows opening to the lawns and you can catch the distant sea over the tops of the eucalyptus. Masses to do – you can be at the beach in 15 minutes if you pedal hard enough (take the bikes) and the walking all year round is marvellous.

"We stayed at Casa Vicentina with our children, three and six . It had a delightful, relaxed, atmosphere and every day got of to a good start with a fabulous breakfast. Days were spent around the pool, exploring the area on bikes and at the stunning Odeceixe's beach . Jose made us feel very welcome and we hope to return soon. "
