The Tranquility That Is Missing in Your Life

The White Shell, located in Porches, is a short distance from the best and beautiful beaches in the Algarve. This region, the southernmost in Portugal, is not only famous for its incomparable beaches, but also for the 300 days of sunshine per year. Keeping a rural and popular side, Porches is a village known for maintaining the traditional Algarvian architecture, which makes it a charming and quiet village. The White Shell condominium accompanies this calm and tranquility, allowing a lifestyle without haste and in harmony with nature. All this, inspired by a high environmental sustainability, responsibility and concern.

White Shell - Beach Villas


White Shell,the  4 star tourist resort, consists of 55 accommodation units with 3 different options in terms of its villas.

The concentric architectural arrangement around the central leisure space gives White Shell its distinctive image, enhancing a feeling of community and family that is essential to benefit to the full from the living experience.

The colours of its minimalist, contemporary design, closely linked to the landscape and the region, were inspired by the unique tones of the Algarve soil, reflected in the selection of terracotta floors and walls, and also in the vegetation, which includes typical trees such as almond and carob. The villas were also given a unifying note, creating a more natural and comfortable but simultaneously sophisticated and harmonious interior.

White Shell includes communal heated swimming pools – with poolside bar – a multipurpose games field and a padel court, children’s playground, spa, gym, assorted services, covered car park and concierge services.

The swimming pools are located in the central leisure space and help create a sense of community for the residents, whilst the spacious landscaped areas are conducive to outdoor activities in a Mediterranean lifestyle, recreating a simple and sustainable ecosystem.

White Shell is a mere 400 metres from the beaches of Senhora da Rocha and Praia Nova, and also within easy reach of other magnificent beaches in the region.

Located in the western part of the Algarve, Porches is connected to the main roads (Via do Infante and EN 125), just 40 minutes from Faro International Airport and less than 15 minutes from the main golf courses in the region.


White Shell, a luxury eco resort, has been developed with a strong commitment to sustainability, offering a unique but differentiated space with great environmental quality.

The villas were designed to provide total comfort in terms of heating, acoustics and light, without compromising energy efficiency and economy of resources. The materials were selected on the basis of environmental criteria, reducing the building’s carbon footprint and ensuring the quality of the indoor air.

Water and energy equipment and consumption systems comply with efficiency standards leading to optimised utilisation costs.

Encouraging people to adopt a healthy lifestyle is an integral part of our sustainability measures, provided through outdoors spaces with a predominance of local flora, and roads and accesses encouraging walking and cycling.
