Grand House Algarve

Grand House Algarve

This prestigious hotel from 1926 was stylishly renovated as a boutique hotel in 2019. It is superbly located on the Guadiana River - the border between Spain and Portugal - which flows into the sea 3 kilometres away. Vila Real de Santo António was wiped off the map by a tsunami in 1755. It was rebuilt according to a sophisticated urban structure with sleek architectural structures. Enjoy the beach club, which you can access with the free shuttle, or visit the salt flats of Castro Marim, Faro or Huelva. Junior butler GRAND is the owner's water dog and warmly welcomes all the guests here.


Newlyweds receive sparkling wine and strawberries in their room. There is a welcome drink for all Caractère clients.
