Casa Modesta is an elegant retreat that combines ecotourism with sustainable design. It’s located between the city of Olhão and the village of Fuseta, in Ria Formosa Nature Park, a coastal lagoon in the southern Algarve region.
The rural tourism / contemporary feel combination, manifests itself in nine rooms with private patios.
Inspired by the simplicity of regional architecture, the minimalist single-story complex offers roof terraces and whitewashed rooms.
There is also a garden with a section for organically grown vegetables and a solarium where time flows with the tides.
In addition to the Algarve’s eternal summer, experience the daily routines of those who make this way of life a lifestyle. From gathering clams to baking bread in a wood-fired oven, to the harvesting and drying of fruits. Catch a ride on a traditional boat, practice bird watching, support the local nature reserve, and when night falls turn your veranda into a planetarium and watch the stars. When the body requires rest, surrender yourself to wellness rituals, taking advantage of the natural properties of local olives, almonds, fleur de sel and algae.
