Announcing the opening of our own boutique guesthouse Casa WAN in south Portugal –
One of Casa WAN´s main draws is its central yet peaceful location (no direct neighbours) in the little village of Aljezur. Overlooking exquisite natural beauty and boasting lake and ocean views, the only sounds you´ll hear nearby are those of birdsong, waves, and the gentle rustling of your lush green surrounds.
It is personally decorated with vintage furniture, sustainable brands and preloved (design) objects. The bed frames and mattresses are high-quality and handmade from natural materials by COCO-MAT. You will sleep on nature.
In the high season (June-September), you are invited to book the whole house (sleeps 6-8 people) exclusively for yourself, while in the low season private double rooms with en-suite bathrooms are available. This is the time when an artist in residence will also live and work on the property and we will host cultural gatherings.
One invited international or local artist can stay cost-free for up to two months with access to a private studio. The artist is welcome to think and create, to research and play and leave behind a trace of their stay. Guests who stay at Casa WAN directly support and gain insight into an artist’s practice and enable the time and space for creative endeavors on site.
