Welcome to Casa Velha,
A wonderful lovingly-restored two-story house with 6 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms in the heart of the historical old town of Aljezur. Casa Velha is really spacious with 3 outside terraces, wonderful views and a small heated pool. It is within easy walking distance of numerous restaurants, bars and shops.

The beautiful, large entrance hall has double doors opening to the large but cosy living area, with exposed wooden beams and traditional log-burner. This spacious room is split between the lounge area at one end and the formal dining area at the other. French doors open on to a large terrace -perfect for outdoor dining, with magnificent views for miles around, over-looking the roof-tops of the old town. Steps lead down from this terrace to the pool-side terrace below. A third terrace has a BBQ and additional dining area.
The large kitchen features an induction hob and conventional electric oven, dishwasher, large fridge, freezer, wine cooler and a beautiful white Belfast sink with grey granite work-tops. There are 2 pretty seating corners either side of the decorative antique wood-fired oven, plus a central island which doubles as a breakfast bar. There’s an adjacent walk-in pantry. The kitchen is a particularly convivial space to congregate while preparing food, checking email, making aperitifs…
Along the hallway, there is a pretty double bedroom, 2 bathrooms (one with a shower/bath, one a recently added Italian shower), a twin bedroom at the end on the hall and then the master bedroom off to the right. The master bedroom is very spacious and has 2 large windows capturing those panoramic views across the valley. From the entrance hall, steps lead down to the lower floor, where there is a large twin bedroom with access to the lower BBQ terrace.
Two more steps down there is a large bathroom with corner bath and an adjacent smaller shower room. There is another door out to the BBQ terrace at the end of the hall. Further down the hall are 2 bedrooms – a twin and a very large double – both with doors leading out to the pool-side terrace.
The pool measures 3 x 5 metres, is 1.2 – 1.3 metres deep and is heated. There is ample space to relax in this very private and tranquil spot that feels like a little tropical paradise with a Moorish feel to the whole area. An Indian day bed and a couple of sun loungers create the ideal sun trap in the morning hours (before it gets too hot!).
