Welcome to South West Portugal

Our leafy hilltop retreat is set in the softly wooded hills of the Costa Vicentina Natural Park.
Bounded by the Serra de Monchique to the north and the infinite blue ocean to the south, we are just a short stroll to a
traditional Portuguese village where the cobbled streets wind down to a beautiful golden beach.
The villa which features four individually stylised apartments, a 40ft pool and amazing coastal and country views is the
perfect base from which to explore the stunning Western Algarve.

 Renovated in 2016

We first opened our doors in 2017 following a complete renovation. Since then we’ve ridden and run thousands of miles, paddled most of the coastline, drunk a lot of very good and very cheap coffee, hosted some very special birthday parties, yoga retreats, active holidays, huge family gatherings, gym groups as well as may small groups of travellers, friends, families and couples.

The villa features four individual self-catered apartments. All completely separate. The lounge looks out towards the pool and huge views to the village and ocean. Interiors are modern and light with simple scandi style kitchens. Shady terraces lead to the main pool. Inside, the walls are whitewashed with dashes of each apartments entity: Azul, Laguna and Oceano. Two bedrooms are at the back with shower or bathroom behind the open plan living space. A forth studio apartment, Sapphire is perfect for couples.

 Whether you decide to rent the whole villa or one of four apartments, OceanBlue features many of the amenities guests and travellers enjoy in their own home – coffee machines, wifi, underfloor heating for out of season comfort and much more.
