This lovely and typical Sagres house has been in our family for three generations now we completely refurbished our home into a fully equipped house providing accommodation to welcome anyone who wants to experience Algarve.

 

Apart from the odd piece, all furniture was refurbished right here with the help of some very skilled and caring friends – this was one of the ways we used to create a peaceful and loving energy that permeates our home.

 

The Divehouse has two dorm rooms, kitchen facilities, living room and one bathroom in the main house. You are free to cook, use the fridge and all kitchen utensils and appliances for your meals and to chill, read, play games, watch tv, play piano and guitar and so much more on our living room.

 

Outside the hostel, you can find proper relaxing areas – a veranda with a hammock right next to the garden, bean bags or just sit on the grass we keep for you. The studio is right next to the house and it is self-contained with a kitchenette, bathroom and a room for up to 4 people.

 

Oh! And don’t forget to visit our dive centre, right in front of the main porch, to start or continue your diving adventure! If you’d also like to explore more of Sagres above the water, we have plenty of activities we can hook you up with. Come and visit!

Outdoor Centre

Our Base is located in Sagres in the Divehouse. Sagres is a historical village surrounded by the Natural Park of Costa Vicentina, an ideal place for many outdoor activities, such as Kayaking, mountain biking, trekking, snorkeling, rockclimbing, horseback riding birdwatching, surfing, windsurfing and scubadiving.

 

Along the Natural Park there is a blend of Mediterranic, Atlantic and North African Vegetation. There are some 750 species, where 100 are endemic, rare or local; 12 do not exist anywhere else in the world, some are considered to be vulnerable and other are protected by European Union. The birds are some of the main players of this area! Here they find an important migration platform between North Africa and Europe.

 

The natural diversity of the bottom and the confluence of distinct water masses – Mediterranic, Atlantic and tropical Atlantic – as well as the upwelling of the deep water currents, are a major contribution for the presence of the high level of biodiversity. Little islands, bays and capes are excellent habitats for shelter, feeding, growing and reproduction of many marine species.
