Flattered to be in Algarve

Flattered to be in Algarve
Just a few meters away from Tavira’s Old Town, set in an old building that served as a convent for Cistercian nuns from as early as 1509, the Convento das Bernardas is a modern renovation undertaken by one of Portugal’s most acclaimed architects. The 2011 Pritzker laureate, Eduardo Souto de Moura.

Souto de Moura has excelled in such way with this project that it eventually earned him the 3rd European Award for Architectural Heritage Intervention in June 2017.

The building has a privileged location facing the centuries-old Tavira saltpans, part of the Ria Formosa marsh ecosystem. Despite the bold intervention, the building has retained much of its original character. The main structural elements, the façade original lines, the Manueline-Gothic portal are all aspects that help preserve this memory. In Souto de Moura’s own words this was in a way one of his most “painful” jobs. Well known for his reluctance with opening windows and doors in his projects, in this particular case he saw himself forced to open over 120 windows. “Probably more than I ever did in my 30 years long career”.

Our 2 villas, are part of what is called the Salinas wing of this well-appointed multi residential complex. High quality building materials, contemporary comfort and carefully-studied design are combined with modern-day facilities and services that include two saltwater swimming pools, video surveillance, a parking space for each unit and beautifully kept outdoor spaces an
