A Casa do Barco


A Casa do Barco is a stylish and captivating five bedroom Premier Villa situated in Aljezur part of western Algarve, in one of Europe’s most pristine nature reserves – the Parque Natural da Costa Vicentina. The cliff-top villa boasts stunning, uninterrupted ocean and river valley views.

Remote, serene, picturesque, you can simply delight in nature at its most unspoiled, soak up the sun by the private pool or wander down to the beach and enjoy the spectacular Atlantic surf – all are directly accessible from your doorstep. The shops and restaurants are within walking distance and Faro airport is approximately an hour and twenty minutes travel time from the villa.


Given its exposed location, the Boathouse was designed to the most thermally and acoustically efficient build standard. A steel-framed structure is encased with polyurethane ensuring it is cool in summer and warm in winter. Solar panels provide all the hot water, underfloor and pool heating, as appropriate. 

Further up the spiral staircase from the bedrooms, is the main open-plan living area. Flooding the lounge, dining and well-appointed kitchen areas with light, expansive glass windows dramatically frame the captivating seascape, valley and mountain vistas. The kitchen features a breakfast bar, cooker, induction hob, ceramic grill, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, microwave, a dumb waiter servicing the roof deck, electrically operated cocktail bar and wine rack. The units are hand-painted by a local artist.

All 5 double bedrooms have deck access (3 river valley views, 2 overlooking the ocean), en suite bathrooms, electrically adjustable beds, under-floor heating, air-conditioning, custom wardrobes, floor-to-ceiling mirrors and dressing tables.

The interior is all wood-floored (bathrooms are tiled) with all rooms offering under-floor heating and custom-built features.

The sauna and mini gym bathroom share a separate shower, WC and wash basin. All have heated towel rails.
