Red Chalet

- Armação de Pêra -

Up to 8 Guests | 4 Bedrooms | 5 bathrooms | 260 + 122 sqm

This historical villa, located at the heart of Armação de Pêra, was built during the turn of the 20th century taking inspiration from the luxury of the Belle Époque that was emerging in the South of France. Originally known as the Chalet dos Caldas e Vasconcelos, it remained as a family summer home for more than 100 years, a sense of tradition that creates an intimate and welcoming atmosphere.

Now listed as a historical building and a famous landmark on the Armação de Pêra coastline, the renovation was committed to retain as many of the original elements as possible: unique wooden floors, antique chandeliers, and a spectacular staircase. The Moroccan influences of the architecture, with geometric designs on the shutters and ceilings, are elegant reminders of the region’s rich cultural history.

The property comprises 1.100 m2 with a large outside space and direct access to the beach. The living area includes approximate 260 m2 in the Main House plus 122 m2 in the White House. The terrace is built into the seawall, giving the impression of a stay upon the ocean itself. With direct access to the beach and the historical town center, it rests with the traditions of the Algarve at its doorstep, from the picturesque church square to the fantastic flavors of the beach front restaurants.

While the villa is cocooned from the outside world, the bars, boutiques and restaurants of Albufeira and Guia are within easy reach, meaning you can fully enjoy the local Algarve lifestyle.

Main House: The main house has two spacious stories. On the ground level, bridging the gap between the comforts of the present and the romance of the past, the large open kitchen opens into a living and dining area with a large terracotta terrace and spectacular seafront setting. There’s also a guest toilet.

The charming staircase leads to the first floor, where two ensuite bedrooms with walk-in closet and a sitting room with a balcony make the most of the breathtaking ocean views. A secret door leads to a further rooftop terrace that, many years ago, the owner built to hear the townsfolk sing their prayers at the Church of “Nossa Senhora dos Navegantes”, for the fishermen to return safe home.

White HouseIn front of the property there’s a guest house that reimagines some of the distinctive character of the main house in a more contemporary aesthetic. White-washed wooden floors and details in splashes of colour are recreated throughout the annex with a fresh, airy feel and a relaxed, effortless style, perfect for younger members of a family looking for their own space. It offers two different units: a duplex suite with an ensuite bedroom, living room and private terrace, and also a self-contained studio with ensuite bedroom and living room.
