Red Chalet by Vila Vita Collection
Europe / Portugal / Algarve
Located at the heart of Armação de Pêra, the Red Chalet was built during the turn of the 20th century and inspired by the opulent luxury of the Belle Époque era emerging in the South of France.
Originally known as the Chalet dos Caldas e Vasconcelos, it remained as a family summer home for almost 80 years, a sense of tradition creating an intimacy that welcomes guests into the company of friends.
Now listed as a historical building and a famous landmark on the Armação de Pêra coastline, our renovation was committed to retain as many of the original elements as possible: a unique wooden floor, antique chandeliers, and a spectacular staircase were all lovingly recreated. The Moorish influences of the architecture, with geometric designs on the shutters and ceilings, all elegant reminders of the region’s rich cultural history.
The terrace is built into the seawall, giving the impression of a stay upon the ocean itself. Despite its central location and the comforts of contemporary luxury, the secluded villa offers an evocative escape, a chance to journey back to simpler times in an authentic alternative to the modern hotel experience.
With direct access to the beach and the historical town centre, it promises all the traditions of the Algarve from its doorstep-from the picturesque church square it overlooks, to the fantastic flavours of the beach front restaurant below.
Bridging the gap between the comforts of the present and the romance of the past, the large open kitchen opens into a living and dining area with a large terracotta terrace and spectacular seafront setting. On the ceilings, sculpted grape vines are a reminder of those that once thrived in front of the villa itself.
The charming staircase leads to two ensuite bedrooms and a living room where a terrace makes the most of the breath-taking views. A secret door leads to a further rooftop terrace that, many years ago, the owner built to hear the townsfolk sing songs dedicated to local fisherman at the church of “A Nossa Senhora dos Navegantes.”
A small guest house in front of the property reimagines some of the distinctive character of the main house in a more contemporary aesthetic. It offers a duplex suite with living room and terrace downstairs, and an ensuite bedroom upstairs, as well as a further self-contained studio with bedroom, shower room and balcony.
White-washed wooden floors and details in splashes of colour are recreated throughout the annex with a fresh, airy feel and a relaxed, effortless style, perfect for younger members of a family looking for their own space.
