portugal's casa modesta offers family heritage and architectural tradition

situated along the lagoons of southern portugal’s ria formosa natural park, ‘casa modesta’ offers an intimate destination for rural tourism expressed with both architectural tradition and modernity. a family-operated boutique hotel to rent, the space is embedded with a rich history — the great-grandfather of the owner had built the original house which was evermore enjoyed by the subsequent generations. now the ancestral legacy will be shared with tourists visiting the stunning natural landscapes of the region.

the rental – available from patrice besse stay – was reinvented by architecture firm PAr, the studio of the owner’s sister, who took influence from local building language, craftsmanship, and materials. new whitewashed walls enhanced with bricks and light wood heighten the perspectives and volumes in a ‘stripped-back’ style.

 

the house’s family heritage will be fully experienced by guests, as the owner elaborates:it may sound biased, but you will experience the ‘best morning’ in the whole of the algarve at casa modesta. in the summer, you can enjoy shell-fishing on the beach or learn how to bake traditional bread with our 84-year-old grandmother and her sister, aunt adelina.guests can reserve a stay in this beautiful retreat here.
