Welcome to Casa Linda
Casa Linda or "Beautiful House" has been offering accommodation to surfers for over 10 years with many people returning time after time. We have a studio apartment, 4 berth surf shack and 3 bedroom villa in the grounds with their own patios and sharing a beautiful garden, swimming pool and large barbeque area. Owner and resident Gill is always happy to help you get the most from your trip.
WIFI, SURFBOARD and BICYCLE rental avaliable.
We are situated in a small urbanisation in the South West Alentejano National Park and the waves in this region remain something of an enigma, perhaps because this corner of Europe is still very remote. A five minute drive will find you at Praia de Arrifana, one of the gems of southern Portugal. As well as three quality beach breaks there is the point, which the locals have named Kangaroo. This is a fast, hollow and rocky right not for the faint hearted (bring a 7ft plus) and there is also much more on offer. Carrapateira for example, offers quality uncrowded reef and beach breaks. Drive a little further south and you arrive in Sagres where you find yourself on what early explorers described as the edge of the world. Here you are completely surrounded by Atlantic ocean. Look left to Spain, straight ahead to Morocco and right to Brazil and Argentina. The swell window is huge. Whatever the wave you’re looking for, it can be found here.
This is also a great place to bring your family, as well as enjoying 300 days of sunshine a year the Algarve offers a large range of activities such as hiking, birdwatching and horseriding not to mention laying by the pool and enjoying the beaches. There are also several bars and restaurants close to hand and clubbing half an hour away in Lagos.
Our house is divided into three fully self contained apartments. The whole house can be opened up for large bookings. If you are coming from overseas, fly to Faro airport (very cheap flights can be found from € 50 return in winter). Hire a car to pick up at the airport, we can help you with this and we will send you directions how to get to the house.
