Holiday home of the week: an Algarve retreat packed with surprises

Defying its modest façade

It might look humble from the street but Casa BonTon in the Portuguese town of Lagoa is full of unexpected spaces – including a hidden courtyard treat…

Dutch-Portuguese practice Studio Arte revived the dilapidated 1895 village farm – available to rent via Holiday Architecture with price in application – reimagining it as a sleek contemporary home with hidden terrace and pool. Old walls have been carefully restored as a canvas for contemporary artworks, while furniture is a mix of antiques and vintage objects.

An inner courtyard branches off the Portuguese holiday home’s kitchen, while the patio acts as a second living room, replete with swimming pool, dining area and shaded sun terraces.

Casa BonTon sleeps up to six, with two bedrooms secreted in the garden wing, and the master suite in the main house.
