The Addresses Opens the Doors to their third Guesthouse Casa Três


Earlier this year I shared Casa Um, the first guesthouse created by The Addresses, a new hospitality brand that combines architecture and design with a focus on the rich heritage of Portugal. Following on from Casa Um, and their second guesthouse Casa Dois, The Addresses have now opened the doors to their third guesthouse Casa Três in the Portuguese town of Vila Real de Santo António. Once a merchant’s house, perched between the Guadiana river and the Atlantic ocean, this stately home has been transformed into an open and spacious property by the award-winning Portuguese architectural firm Atelier Rua, with a carefully curated interior by the creative studio Studio Stories.

Each guesthouse has its own story and is located in an authentic location where old and new collide. Vila Real de Santo António, a hidden gem, is situated on the banks of the Guadiana River that separates Portugal from Spain and flows into the Atlantic Ocean. Near the middle of the historic, pedestrian centre and with a charming marina in the distance, sits Casa Três.

With a peaceful ambience both inside and out, Casa Três has an airy and bright courtyard with an old citrus tree and a glistening outdoor pool. Centred around this shaded oasis are three large bedrooms, each with an ensuite bathroom. The multiple roof terraces, saturated by the afternoon sun, are perfect for late-night dinners or early breakfasts. On the ground floor, a living room and kitchen are punctuated by a vaulted ceiling and open up to the outdoor balcony and back patio. Grey terrazzo has been used for all of the floors, countertops and sinks, with a cement mosaic for all wet areas. Bespoke cabinetry in dark slatted wood adds warmth to the space, and the lounge area is relaxed and homely with a mix of interesting objects and books.
