Who we are ?

We are Angélique and Christophe De Oliveira and we settled in Portugal in 2018, following Chris' Portuguese roots. We immediately fell in love with Faro and became promoters of its Modernist architectural heritage. We even wrote a book


In 2021, we launched The Modernist accommodation in Faro. With it, we created a unique architectural hospitality experience and became a reference in architecture travel in Europe. We have been featured in Forbes, Monocle, National Geographic, Elle Decor and Evasoes. 


Following our passion for architecture, we had a dream to gather others passionate for the first Modernist architecture weekend in Faro. Let's share the relatively unknown but significant heritage of Faro.
