The Art of Joy B&B by Sea Portugal

Experience The Art of Joy, B&B by the Sea Portugal! Look at our drone view to get a good impression. On the 27th of February 2023 we open our doors again. On your flip-flops you can walk to the golden beach of Meia Praia within 5 minutes (!) for a swim in the Atlantic Ocean. Our new Quinta is located in a green oasis, where you can enjoy peace and quiet. At the same time, our B&B by the sea Portugal is only two km away from the historic, but also trendy city of Lagos. Our B&B is located in the former residence of the famous Portuguese writer Sophia de Mello Breyner Andresen.

The Art of Joy, B&B by the Sea Portugal

The Art of Joy B&B by the Sea Portugal also has its own tennis court and a swimming pool. In addition, the most beautiful golf course in Portugal, Palmares, is a stone’s throw away.  Moreover, from our quiet B&B by the sea Portugal you will get to a beautiful beach in no time (5 minutes walking). This coastal strip of Meia Praia has a range of 6 km. This allows you to find tranquil places on the beach, even in summer. Not only can you enjoy swimming there, however you also can take a beautiful beach walk. Besides the beach of Meia Praia with its azure blue clear water, Lagos has the most beautiful bays in the Algarve with beaches such as; Praia Dona Ana and Praia Porto do Mos. These beaches are surrounded by golden yellow rock formations, which you can admire on foot, by paddle or by canoe.

The town of Lagos, restaurants and facilities

In addition, you can stroll from our B&B by the sea Portugal half an hour to the centre of the historic and trendy city of Lagos. This former capital of the Algarve has an impressive history and therefore has different architectural styles. The first voyages of discovery to Africa and the east were organized from the harbour. The city wall was built to ward off pirates and can still be admired during a city walk. Within the boundaries of these walls, you can wander for hours through cosy alleys with colourful tiled houses and small-scale shops. All in all, there are countless amenities. For example, in terms of restaurants and beach bars, Lagos has a lot to offer. Also for vegetarians or vegans.
