In São Brás de Alportel, a rural town in Portugal’s Algarve region, The Addresses have transformed one of the area’s oldest buildings into Casa Quatro; a serene, luxurious guesthouse. The open-plan living space of white plaster walls, vaulted ceilings, and arched windows feels spacious and airy, with art and soft furnishings in terracotta hues creating a sense of warmth.

When the sun inevitably shines, guests can unwind at the private indoor patio and pool.
