B&B and apartments with swimming pool and jacuzzi in Loulé, Portugal.
After several holiday visits to this beautiful part of the Algarve, we resolved to move here in September 2007, in order to establish a home and a business. Our choice of starting a bed and breakfast was very easy, as we both have a deep interest in the leisure industry. Our greatest challenge was finding a suitable property in this area, sufficient for us to entertain 15 to 20 guests.
Eventually, we found our ideal property, “Casa Porta Azul”, a 19th century farmhouse which during the last 20 years, was used in some way or another, as a guest house. The building has now been completely renovated with a view to maintaining it’s old rustic charm, but with the latest, and highest standard of luxury.
All rooms and apartments have their own entrance and terrace. The fruit and palm trees provide beautiful shady places out of the sun. In the heat of the day you can cool off in our (heated) swimming pool. You can also relax in our Jacuzzi while enjoying the lovely surrounding. In our kitchen and pool bar you can always get yourself a cold drink.
All the rooms are air-conditioned (to heat or cool), the room. The bathrooms are with walk-in showers and toilet. It is possible to place a cot in the rooms of category Comfort and Luxury.
Our casa also has a room for the disabled with an extra large bath- and bedroom.
The rooms in our Casa are divided into three categories: Standard, Comfort and Luxury.
These are standard twin bedded rooms (large beds), with ensuite bathroom and a terrace. The rooms are on the ground floor of the Casa.
These are large twin bedded rooms (large beds), with a terrace. The rooms are on the ground floor of the Casa.
These are large twin bedded rooms (large beds), with a large private terrace with garden- and sea view. The rooms are on the first floor of the Casa.
In our Casa we have two fully furnished apartments for 2 or 4 people with fully equipped kitchen, cozy sitting area and bathroom with shower and toilet. Each apartment has its own entrance and private terrace.
We also have a penthouse available for 4 people. The penthouse is located on the first floor of Casa Porta Azul. A modern and luxurious ambiance typifies the very spacious penthouse.

You can really experience the authentic Portuguese landscape close to the casa, which is something we treasure highly. Within a one minute walk from Casa Porta Azul one can find large orange and tangerine fields where the old farmers are still working and living.
Often the local shepherd comes by with his flock of sheep, as it’s only a ten minute walk to the sheep-fold where the flock is kept.
The balmy temperatures at night, the sound of the wind which goes through the palm trees and of course the traditional Port wine gives you a sleepy feeling for a perfect night of sleep.
Our impression overall is very good, very well maintained casa, pool and beautiful garden.
