Casa Modesta is a unique boutique hotel with eight stunning suites, a striking minimalist architecture and an exceptionally warm ambience. Its friendly Portuguese owners go out of their way to provide a thoroughly hospitable and comfortable stay.
The impressive result of a family-run project, the owners have succeeded in transforming their former family home into a thoroughly modern boutique hotel. Every member of the family has contributed in their own special way; the daughter Vanda, is the property’s skilful architect, the son, Carlos, the welcoming host. Another of the sons is a professional physiotherapist who provides massages upon request. During our stay at Casa Modesta, the father busily tended the garden, whilst Carlos rustled up an array of delicious meals. Team effort at its finest!
All of the materials, such as the extensively used cork and the delicious food products, have been locally sourced. There’s even a small organic vegetable garden within the hotel grounds. Guests can enjoy a delicious, fresh breakfast every morning, in addition to lunch and dinner upon request. Slow-food workshops are also organised for the budding chefs!
Each of the eight comfortable suites have been tastefully decorated and a number benefit from 'connecting doors.’ Some additionally boast their own private terrace. There are several shaded seating areas in the garden, where a small, yet inviting swimming pool also awaits.
With its versatile accommodation, lovely garden (complete with children’s swing) and quiet location (within walking distance of the beach), Casa Modesta is also perfect for families.
Casa Modesta is nestled in the green, natural surroundings of the Ria Formosa - a breathtaking National Park in southern Portugal. In fact, the National Park (where one can glimpse flamingos and other rare birds) can be readily accessed by an eco-trail leading directly from the hotel.
Alternatively, you can hop on a bike and head to Fuseta beach, or take the short ten-minute stroll to a smaller beach nearby. Meanwhile, the traditional village of Olhao is a mere 6 km distant. The Casa Modesta family cannot wait to introduce you to this most beautiful and authentic part of the Algarve.
All accommodations in our unique collection meet our high standards in quality, comfort, style and setting. We visit every place, meet the owners and explore the area, so we are sure that you will have a great holiday here!
