"Due to all of the fraudulent listings on the booking sites we are now recommending that before you inquire or book here you should independently verify the rental by internet searching for the house name and area to verify it's existence. Our name is Casa da Praia Algarve. Scammers have been throwing up fake listings - including fake reviews - on Air b and b etc. But no scammer is going to take the time to also set up a custom website and social media pages for a fake rental.

When to come
The Algarve is an all year round holiday destination.
If you're not tied to the school holidays, the spring and autumn months are a lovely time to be here, and of course, much quieter than high summer.
Even December and January can be warm and sunny although the evenings are often chilly. Not all the restaurants and bars stay open in winter, but there is still plenty of choice, and a warm welcome.
When you make a reservation with us, we are required to report your presence and details to the Portuguese Immigration and Borders Service (SEF). Please send me your email address after your reservation so we can send you our reservation form to fill in.
Since 2015 Portugal has more strictly enforced a long-standing law requiring anyone providing paid holiday accommodation to record the entry, exit, and identification details of all non-Portuguese nationals who use that accommodation. When staying in a hotel guests are used to show their IDs at checkin. Short term rentals are also required to report guest's information to SEF - it is called the Accommodation Bulletin.
A person renting our accommodation or member of a group doing so who refuses to confirm identify will not be accepted. In addition to security issues, customer registration in the property is still required for tax and statistical control (INE and Turismo de Portugal IP) purposes. Not collecting the required information can lead us being subject to the imposition of heavy penalties (imprisonment and fines up to 35000 euro).
We reserve the right to refuse entry to more guests staying in the accomodation than one the stated on the reservation.
Your reservation will automatically cancelled when we have not received the filled in form back within 72 hours after sending it out.

Casa da Praia Algarve could be just an other serie of rental properties in the West Algarve but it is so much more than that. Casa da Praia Algarve is a story about people, about lifestyle, about a certain vision of Portugal. Most of all it is a accommodation concept that is a certain platform for artists, designers, Portugeese brands.
The Casa da Praia Algarve portfolio have been personally developed by my self. I am an Flemish interior and landscape designer who has lived in the Algarve for more than a decade.
All cottages in the portfolio are scattered with unique and eclectic pieces, gathered from travels around the world.
Casa da Praia will be your home away from home and you will love the locations.
Our properties are always ready for visitors. We like to keep it clean and uncluttered, such as you would expect in a good hotel space. But it is not a hotel - it is a home we like to share with you if you stay.
