Being looked after, eating organic farm-to-table breakfasts, novels on the hammock, gelato by the poolside, al fresco barbeques for dinner. Bubble baths and snuggling up under the crisp duvet and taking your sweet time. Learning something new and exploring a little. Recharging. 
 
That’s your getaway at Casa Mae.

Riz and I spent a few days in Lagos, Portugal at the start of our summer vacation and it honestly couldn’t have been better! We didn’t go in with too many plans, just a few beaches marked on the map, and everything ended up falling into place perfectly. I also think because we didn’t put too much pressure on ourselves for something over-the-top, everything was so much more fun and enjoyable as it played out. 
 
The entire property of the hotel we were staying in, Casa Mãe, is utterly idyllic. Set within a sprawling stonewalled estate, the property is arranged over a series of three different spaces: a 19th-century family estate house with five suites and Orta; a farm-to-table café, Jogo da Bola; a contemporary and minimalist whitewashed building with 22 guests rooms, a casual fine-dining restaurant and bar, and LOJA; Casa Mae’s concept store, that’s all about craft and Portugal, and a trio of breezy bungalows fitted with outdoor showers. They also have an organic, terraced vegetable garden and a restored antique irrigation system on the property that guests can walk through that has everything from fresh herbs to olive groves and orange trees.

      Algarve is great and the further west you go the nicer it gets. Casa Mae had a couple of families with babies and they said it was a lovely hotel for the whole family as well. Hopefully Finland will also have a lot more sunny days this year 🙂 xx K

    Beautiful place! Sounds like a luxurious time. I laughed out loud at your side-by-side hammock shots.

      Hi Sue – hehe, I’ll tell Riz, that will make him very happy. It was ah-mazing and so relaxing, for once I didn’t make any crazy plans and we just enjoyed the hotel. Usually, I have too much of an itch to explore a new place…
