CASA KALU in Alportel is the perfect holiday home for those seeking peace and tranquility in an authentic Portuguese surrounding. The unique boutique Bed and Breakfast offers double and family rooms including breakfast. Rooms can be rented separately or you can enjoy the whole house with sleeping for up to 15 people in timeless style and design.
Located in Alportel in the Algarve, known for the Ria Formosa nature reserve, beaches, wine, markets, ceramics, cork trees and many sports opportunities (Golf, Kite, Surf, Bike, Hike), make CASA KALU a perfect starting point for exploring the region.
CASA KALU was once an old ruin at the end of a dirt road up on the hill. The farmhouse was completely re-build in 2000 and renovated in 2020-22. Access nowadays is easy due to the recently built paved road. The house is encompassed by nature, nestled among cypress, olive and cork trees.
Alportel is known as being between the countryside and the sea. Within only 30 minutes you can be by the ocean sunbathing and catching some waves, or within just a few minutes you can be in the middle of the woods and hills, known as the Fonte Ferrea, for some hiking and biking activity. São Brás de Alportel, the former cork capital of Portugal, is only a few minutes away and offers everything from excellent restaurants to lovely cafés and supermarkets.
MAKE IT YOUR PLACE.

My name is Frank Lösel and I am the owner of CASA KALU. I fell in love with Portugal back in the 90’s due to travelling as well as studying in Lisbon for one year. Ever since I headed back to this beautiful country and lovely people. My wish to make a living in Portugal also dates back to this time. Finally, in 2019 I was able to realize my dream and bought the house in Alportel. After some renovation and updating of the existing house structure and adding & creating a new garden area „CASA KALU” opened its doors in 2022.
CASA KALU – you may ask yourself where the name comes from. During two sabbaticals I travelled around the globe and realized that Portugal is really the place I want to live and I would love to run my own B&B. The idea for CASA KALU was born in Chile. Staying in a small and lovely renovated B&B with attention to detail I met the owners and their Weimaraner dog. They called him “KALU”, which they stated goes back to an old Chilean word for “GREY”. It was the moment that I decided if I would ever open a B&B it should be called CASA KALU.
Hope to see you soon!
