About Us

A Wonderful Nest is a centenary limestone cottage where shabby antiques, mostly wooden, gain a new life. It is located in the center of the Algarve, in the small village of Alcantarilha. The renovation works, that lasted four months, were concluded in August 2017.

The renovation project started with two limestone houses, built in 1874, combined together to provide a spacious accommodation that includes a cosy enclosed patio. The facade was kept intact, only restored. However, the interior was fully renovated, combining the two original houses into a spacious and luminous open space, that ends with an inviting patio where the plunge pool is located.

The use of contemporary materials that contrast with the old ones creates comfortable spaces while maintaining an historic and romantic ambience.
Designed especially for couples, a Wonderful Nest is perfect for a romantic getaway.


Alcantarilha is one of the last authentic villages of the Algarve.

Here you can find peace and quiet, kind inhabitants, a traditional market and still be close to heavenly beaches, only 5 Km away.

Guest Reviews

"The place is amazing. It is even more incredible in real life than on the pictures. It is all completely new and clean, it had everything you need and complete privacy on the patio, which is perfect to relax and get away."

"Amazing and lovely house, renovated and designed by the best host we could imagine! Isabel welcomed us very warm and with many information about the area. The beaches are really beautiful and close by. It's really a wonderful nest for people who love architecture, design, tradition and good food!"

"We feel absolutely blessed with our stay at a wonderful nest. The house is just the most calm, aligned and relaxing place I've ever been to. All old and modern elements come together in the best way possible and allow an airy, open and protective feel at the same time."
