The Modernist Faro is a minimalistic and intimate residence in Faro, designed for those who seek a unique experience and love extraordinary architecture. The 6 appartments each have a 1970s feel and a minimalist design. You will stay in the beautiful, historic city with a relaxed atmosphere and many options for restaurants and shops. It's just a few steps to the harbor, where you take a 15 minutes boattaxi to deserted islands. Sandy beaches and blue-green lagoons are just a 10 minutes drive.

The building of The Modernist Faro dates back to the 70s and the award-winning Portuguese architecture studio Par has preserved this retro feel as much as possible during the renovation. Unique features in every apartment; natural stone, unique door handles, comfy sofa, golden details and handmade wooden furniture. The appartments are 40-45 square metres and each has a private balcony or terrace. You will sleep in comfortable queen-size beds and have a beautiful stone kitchen for preparing a simple meal. 

Besides a private balcony or terrace, you can also use the panoramic roof terrace or the beautiful inner garden. You will find yourself in a (green) oasis of peace. Faro has one of the largest concentrations of modern architecture in Southern Europe. Visionary architects, most of them graduates of Portugal's prestigious architecture school, came to the Algarve and gave their own twist to well-known architectural styles. The Modernist Faro is a perfect fit for travellers with a fondness for modern architecture. Take your time, enjoy your stay and discover the beauty of the Algarve.

The Modernist Faro is located in one of the most southern and undiscovered cities of Europe: Faro, the capital of the Algarve. Faro is located along the nature reserve of Ria Formosa, a 60 km long lagoon with a maze of islands, white beaches and dunes with native plants and wildlife. There are excellent walking trails and bike routes here. There are also spectacular beaches and coves where you can often enjoy the view all by yourself. To visit Ria Formosa, drive to the village of Fuseta where you can park your car. You can also take a boat taxi (from the harbor of Faro or Olhao) to one of the local islands, Ilha da Armona, Ilha da Culatra and Ilha do Farol. Beach lovers can enjoy the idyllic white beaches in the blue lagoons of the natural park Ria Formosa and the wide sandy beaches on the Atlantic Ocean such as Praia de Vilamoura, Praia de Vale do Lobo and Praia de Loulé Velho

Faro is a relaxed city with old buildings and many atmospheric streets with restaurants and bars. You can stroll through the city along boutique shops, old cathedrals and the cosy harbour. The old fishing village Olhão (10 km) is also very nice to explore and on Saturdays there is a cozy local market. There are also many restaurants within walking distance that serve delicious fish dishes. Sports enthusiasts can also indulge themselves here: there are various walking paths, cycling routes and golf courses in the region and the Algarve is also an excellent surfing location.
