Luazinha is one of the few Fisherman's cottages along the lagoons edge at Pinherio that still exists. It has been lovingly renovated to create a cosy cottage on the Ria Formosa Nature reserve, a rare, secluded and unspoilt spot on the Eastern Algarve. The nature reserve boasts many rare varieties of birdlife and here you will find them in your garden! Waking up to the sound of the sea and birds chirping in this special part of the Eastern Algarve, many of our guests do not wish to leave and return time and time again to Luazinha. At the bottom of the garden a walkway and cycle route along the lagoons edge, leads you west along the salt pans to Fuseta and East towards the stunning beach of Barril. Along the lagoons edge a short walk from Luazinha is a fabulous fish and seafood Restaurant, Fialho, which is very family friendly and a joy to eat there at all times of the year… All of this right on your doorstep. It is a birdwatchers paradise and a family’s perfect holiday break, away from it all. From Luazinha you will be in easy reach of plenty of beaches and towns along the Eastern Algarve, All within a few minutes drive away.

From the moment you arrive at Luazinha you will be impressed by the location and view, only to be surpassed by the view in the best ‘rooms’ in the cottage. The front terrace and the roof terrace.

From the front terrace you will come into the open plan living area of Luazinha, with a cosy living room with wood burner for the cooler months, plenty of books to choose from and a CD player. The dining area is adjacent to the kitchen. With hob, microwave, table top oven, fridge freezer and all utensils you will need for a self catering holiday. The dining table, seats 6 and we also have a highchair for the younger traveller.An archway leads you to the shower room and the 2 bedrooms in the cottage. One of the bedrooms has a double bed and the other bedroom next door has twin beds, ideal for families. All the windows at Luazinha have mosquito nets which allow the sea breeze to cool the cottage in the summer months.

The outside space at Luazinha is where you will spend most of your time, the view is very difficult to draw yourself away from! The front terrace with wooden table, chairs and parasol is great for taking a lazy breakfast in the morning sun, watching the locals collecting shellfish in the lagoon. Winding steps leads you up onto the roof terrace, which has pergola and sails for shade. The barbecue is also on the roof terrace, and your uninterrupted view over the lagoon and out to the sandy Islands of Fuzeta, will make barbecues an absolute joy! With views over the lagoon and far reaching views of the sea. At night you are showered in stars and the moon reflects off the water. Hence the name Luazinha – Little Moon. In addition to this, we have also created in 2011 a garden area at the front of the Cottage for some extra space and pleasure, with a thought of attracting even more birdlife, right on your doorstep.

We do hope we have thought of everything to make your stay at Luazinha an experience to be enjoyed over and over again.
