Casa Estombar is a quirky home located in the small village of Estômbar, close to the beaches of Ferragudo and Portimão. The villa can accommodate four guests across its two bedrooms and offers a quiet home away from the busy towns. Settled among residential houses, local businesses, restaurants and shops, the villa offers insight into the local way of life and a brilliant base for exploring some of the Algarve’s best sights. With a private plunge pool and intimate outdoor seating areas, you can make the most of the Portuguese sunshine and enjoy an amazing holiday together with your loved ones.

The villa has an eclectic aesthetic that makes the property quite unique; the mix of traditional and modern styling alongside some quirky features makes it a fun property to spend time in. Guests enter on the ground floor and are welcomed into the open-plan kitchen, living and dining areas. This communal space is filled with character, with a large window above the kitchen allowing natural light to flood in. The living room has a large sofa, a television, and overflowing bookshelves, making for a snug space in both summer and winter. The dining table sits at the centre of the space and is great for big group meals, whilst the fully equipped, the modern kitchen becomes a hub for activity, with a breakfast bar, wine rack and plenty of space for everyone to gather around. With everything needed for some great home cooking, you and your guests can share lovely evenings over a delicious meal, pairing it with a glass or two of local wine!

There are two double bedrooms in the villa, both with their own en-suite bathrooms. Beautifully renovated, the first of these elegant rooms are on the ground floor, with the second upstairs among the rafters. Natural wooden features, white walls and bold artworks make these intimate rooms feel innately creative, providing plenty of inspiration for your trip.

Outside the terrace is as charming and well-designed as the interiors. A barbecue area, outdoor kitchen and table are perfect for enjoying some al fresco dining, covered so you can take shelter from the sun in the midday heat. There is also another dining space under the dabbled light of the olive trees and a fabulous plunge pool for when you need to cool off. An artist’s residence in a charming village, Casa Estombar is the perfect Algarve retreat.

Casa Estombar is a quirky home located in the small village of Estômbar, close to the beaches of Ferragudo and Portimão. There are several shops and restaurants within a short walk of the villa, perfect for an evening meal out, or a relaxed amble in the afternoon. Within easy reach of some of the Algarve’s top places to visit, this is a fantastic base for exploring the beauty of the area. Whether you are looking for beaches, historic sites, waterparks or a variety of it all, there is something for everyone in this amazing area.

The most well-known village in this municipality is Carvoeiro, a vibrant tourist town with a city beach. With its colourful houses, fishing boats and dramatic cliffs, Carvoeiro is one of the most photographed places in the entire Algarve. There are plenty of restaurants, shops and bars for you to choose from, ideal for a day of exploring. Sheltered by majestic cliffs, the sandy bays are perfect for chilling out in the sun and swimming in the sea. For those who do not enjoy lazy days on a sun lounger, there are plenty of activities to get involved with. There is a range of water sports, including jet-skiing, snorkelling, sea kayaking and pedaloes. Or, for the more adventurous, you can take a boat trip around the magnificent coastline and explore the secret caves and snorkel around the cliff edges. The beautiful Praia de Marinha is also just a short drive away and has been voted one of the top ten beaches in the world – a must-visit!

The options in the area certainly do not stop at beaches, with some brilliant hiking routes along clifftops and into the mountains, as well as some renowned cycling routes. There are two water parks within a short drive of the villa, as well as a thrilling theme park, sure to delight any younger guests.

Steeped in history, there are sites to visit and Portuguese heritage to delve into. On the cliffs above Carvoeiro, visit the remains of the walls of the Fort of Senhora da Conceição, dating back to the 17th century. You can take a day trip to the Moorish castle in Silves, travelling by car or by boat along the Arade river.

Situated some 7 km inland from the magnificent coastline for which this municipality of the Algarve is renowned, the small city of Lagoa has a rural feel that contrasts significantly with the cosmopolitan atmosphere of its popular seaside resorts.

The idyllic town is charmingly traditional and only a short distance from the popular Portimão. As well as being close to some of the best beach resorts in the region and the historic town of Silves, Lagoa holidays have ample charms of their own.

Inserted in a traditionally agricultural and important wine-producing area, Lagoa lies on a small hill rising above flatlands that allegedly once held the lagoon that gave the city its name.


Though most people tend to see the Algarve as all about the beaches and a holiday on the Med, there’s far much more to it than that. 

But while you’re enjoying one of our fantastic villas in Algarve, you may well want to take some time out from all that sun worship to explore everything else the region has to offer – so we’ve put together this handy travel guide to give you a little help and inspiration!

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Teens

The Algarve is famed for its family-friendly, welcoming Portuguese culture. The beaches, lakes, water parks and rich history make this area a fantastic choice for kids of all ages. Casa Estombar, with its quirks and charms, is sure to delight little ones as much as it does adults. The plunge pool and private courtyard offer space to play and relax, whilst the intimate, open-plan interiors make family life a dream.

The local beaches are always a popular choice among families. Carvoeiro beach in the nearby town is great for little ones as there are no steps and everything you could need, from refreshments to snorkelling equipment, is close at hand. There are also plenty of beaches with water sports, including jet-skiing, snorkelling, sea kayaking and pedaloes for children to revel in.

There is a lake nearby called The Fontes, with natural spring swimming pools, a park, barbecues, a picnic area and trails around the lake, which are great for nature walks. For a little more exhilaration, there are two water parks right on your doorstep. Slide and Splash is the closest park and is located between Lagoa and Estombar. The park is great for all ages and has a great water park area for small children. Along the road near to Alcantarilha, there is Aqualand; you’ll find a smaller water park but the cheapest one in the Algarve and still lots of fun.

Krazy World is a great choice for younger kids between 4 and 10. There is a large petting zoo with little goats, sheep and ponies, while kids will also love the reptile house, crocodiles and snapping turtles in another area of the park. There is an 18-hole mini golf course through the woods, which is good for older children and during the summer, they have an open large pool area with a slide for the big ones and a shallow pool for smaller children.

  • Villa is lovely

    on 01/09/2023

    The villa is lovely however no sun loungers only deck chairs. 2 cupboard doors hanging off in the kitchen and pool is very small.

  • Really lovely

    on 17/11/2022

    We so loved our stay, so stylish and comfortable, with a fantastic outdoor terrace with multiple areas for entertaining inside and outside! Totally recommend Estômbar as a location, it is a gorgeous original little village offering butchers and groceries close by in walking distance and a short drive to beaches and tourist hotspots.

  • Alles in allem hat es uns gut gefallen

    on 07/11/2022

    Die Unterkunft ist liebevoll eingerichtet und hat mit seiner kunstvollen Gestaltung einen besonderen Charme. Estombar hat leider nicht so viel zu bieten aber dient gut als Ausgangspunkt um die Westalgarve zu erkunden. Die Anfahrt zum Haus ist etwas tricky durch die kleinen Gassen. Alles in allem hat es uns gut gefallen.

  • Ein tolles Haus

    on 03/10/2022

    Ein tolles Haus bei dem die Beschreibung /Fotos mit der Realität übereinstimmt. Es liegt in Estombar nicht direkt an der Küste, aber mit dem Auto ist man in ca 10 Min schnell dort. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten auch in 5 Min zu erreichen! Alles wirkt sehr neu und geschmackvoll!

  • Really cool house!

    on 21/09/2022

    Tremendous value for the price. 4 bathrooms is amazing. For one couple was more than enough space. For two couples I would say the privacy would be a bit less, so keep that in mind. But amazing overall. Streets are tight! I recommend parking near the pizza place 1 minute walk away. More space and options and easier to get out from there and walk to the apartment. They had towels for the pool/beach, a big portable speaker. Wish they had a tv with an HDMI plug in for my Amazon fire stick but that’s literally the only bad you can say which is a good sign. Try the carnecho restaurant 2 minute walk away for an amazing experience. Other than that it’s a great location to move around the whole algarve and be in a quiet safe area on a hill. Wifi was good too! Great kitchen! Love the backyard!

  • I would stay again for a weekend

    on 05/08/2022

    Lovely place, felt like a private oasis. We stayed there for a weekend. Nicely renovated and kitchen had all that was needed. Only downside was that the store in the town didn’t sell pods for the coffee machine. The pool was just the right size to lounge and talk, but the pool pump does make some noise. Beds were quite firm (but that’s a personal preference). The town is really small, there’s a small mini convenience store about 3 minutes walk with some basics (doesn’t show up on maps app). For more you need to take the car. I would recommend parking the car at the hill, and just walk up. But we are also not used to driving in narrow streets or steep inclines. Recommendations for food: we had a great evening at a Portugese restaurant around the corner O Charneco. And we had a wine food tasting at Arvad (about 4km away). Breakfast and apero we did at the “snackbar/breakfast place” next to the playground. They had nice French pasteries, plat du jour and good coffee.

  • Everything looks very new and tasteful!

    on 22/07/2022

    A great house where the description / photos correspond to reality. It's not directly on the coast in Estombar, but you can get there in about 10 minutes by car. Shops can also be reached in 5 minutes!

  • Casa súper cómoda

    on 26/06/2022

    Hemos estado 5 días ha sido una linda experiencia ,la casa está perfecta solo quitando la ubicación ya que está a las afueras ,también decir que el tema del aparcamiento ha sido complicado pero por lo demás perfecto casa súper cómoda ,con todo lo que necesitas para mi ha sido 5 estrellas.

  • I really liked the week a spent here

    on 02/02/2022

    Big house with great design in a delightful and quiet Portuguese village. The beaches are 15/20 min away. It’s perfect for a small family, small group of very close friends (since the upside bedroom doesn’t offer much privacy) or just a couple. The patio was my favourite part of the house, although I was expecting a deep pool size. The house owners are really fast communicators and resolve problems easily!
