Nestled among hundreds of olive, almond, and cork trees at a site that was once home to ancient ruins, Casa Luum is a stunning modern getaway in The Algarve, Portugal’s southernmost coastal region.
Designed by local architect Pedro Domingos, the four-bedroom retreat is a mix of whitewashed concrete walls and bold rectangular forms. Cleverly integrated into its natural landscape, the home opens itself up to its surroundings via multiple patios, rooftop terraces, and a large central courtyard with a serene swimming pool. If you’re ready to pack your bags, just wait until you see inside.
Combining stylish living with locally sourced and crafted features throughout, the villa is arranged with the main living spaces around the pool and outdoor dining area for easy living at day and night. Sun worshippers will love the roof terrace; not only is this a perfect spot for keeping your tan topped up, it also offers you a wonderful view of the surrounding countryside and carefully designed gardens.
By night, the roof terrace is the perfect spot for sunset cocktails or a nightcap under the stars. On cooler evenings, you can light the fire in the upper floor living room and enjoy the views through the large feature window. There are 4 tranquil double bedrooms, all in the same clean minimalist style, with access to the terraces outside. There are several world class golf courses a 10-15-minute drive away.
