Go Back

At the border with Spain, eastern Algarve is one of Portugal’s best-kept secrets. It is here, in the small historic town of Vila Real de Santo António, where Grand House has recently reopened its doors, bringing with it a revival of the splendour of the Roaring Twenties and the country’s rich past — a façade of belle-époque architectural details and furniture featuring art deco and colonial touches. Sip a cocktail in the fresh evening air and admire the fine mahogany bar with the sounds of a grand piano in the background; gaze upon the sailboats as they head down the Guadiana River to the Atlantic. Grand House is the epitome of a pure and beautiful Portuguese saudade.
