From the ground up the founders built a house using the traditional knowledge and architectural culture, the local people and materials. In the Casa Chã, they translated ancestral legacies to a contemporary language, creating and feeding social and economical dynamics connected to local art and crafts. Cemented in the memory of family and place, by consolidated this project in the Casa Modesta prototype.
To the Algarve summer, with sand in it's feet, Casa Modesta has added the daily routines of those who make this way of life a lifestyle, from gathering clams to baking bread to the harvesting and drying of fruits. Here you catch a ride on a traditional boat, practice birdwatching, support the local nature reserve, and when night falls Casa Modesta turn their verandas into a planetarium and watch the stars. When the body requires rest you surrender ourselves to wellness rituals, taking advantage of the natural properties of local oliver, almonds, fleur de sel and algae. Some may call it a "vacation", they call it "culture".
