The Algarve of the olds days in a contemporary setting

Once Upon a Time...

Casa Modesta is a rural tourism hotel located next to the calm waters of the Ria Formosa, in the eastern Algarve. The architecture of the old house and its contemporary features have been preserved, preserving the memories of a simpler lifestyle that guests can experience in the various clay, basketry or cane toys workshops.

In this small family hotel, close to the best beaches in the Algarve, there are nine rooms with private bathrooms and private patios. You can also discover a vegetable garden, a garden, a solarium, an old cistern that today is a wine cellar, the old wood oven that still bakes bread and an outdoor pool.

The location of Casa Modesta is a perfect starting point to discover the Ria Formosa Natural Park, the cities of Olhão or Tavira and beaches in the Algarve such as Fuseta or Barril. The sunrise is perfect for watching the birds migration, the fishermen work or salt extraction from the salines.
