The very special holiday homes

at the Ria Formosa


Casa Bela Sombra


Casa Bela Sombra lies in the middle of the nature reserve Ria Formosa in a huge garden of 2400 yrd2 with mainly subtropical and tropical plants. The location is quiet and lies next to a pine forest – the garden has a fence all around as well as trees and plants which give you privacy and protect you against views from outside. 

General information

A very homely leisure residence, with 1600 ft2 living space and thus comfortably suited for 4 to 8 persons.

This house is built solely by materials used in organic architecture and is hence ideal for allergic persons. Next to other aspects a main emphasis was laid on a good isolation, optimal use of the natural light conditions for the rooms and building techniques that are typical for the area – all of this creates a pleasant "climate" in the rooms.

A walk to the wadden sea takes you only 5 minutes.
