Style and ambience

A treasure trove of upmarket fashion items, gifts and ideas for the home, laid out in a meandering series of rooms and display areas, many of them re-creating the look and feel of a home.

What to buy

Candles, fashion accessories, shoes, gifts, ornaments, towels, linen, clocks, artworks, mirrors, cushions, upholstery, furniture, etc

Why do you like it

In addition to selling items from a range of local and international manufacturers and designers, Al4uatro offers an interior design service, together with an in-house workshop. This allows the company to personalise projects to your taste, as well as making curtains, upholsteries, cushions, furniture, sofas and armchairs, and carrying out small repairs.

When to go

Anytime you happen to be buying/moving house or redecorating of course, but also if you’re looking for something new for the home, or that ideal gift for a special person or occasion. They also offer a wedding gift service.

Insider knowledge

One of the first interior design shops to open in the Algarve, in 1984.

As well as the general public, the company also offers its services to bars, restaurants, hotels and retail outlets.

Written as Al4uatro (due to its original location with the street number of 4) it is pronounced ‘Alquatro.’


Avenida 5 de Outubro 302, 8135-103 Almancil. The shop is located in the same building as Casavostra pizzeria, on the main road going out of Almancil in the direction of Albufeira and the A22. As you pass Apolonia supermarket on your left hand side, go straight across at the next small roundabout, and Al4uatro /Casavostra is on your right hand side. Some off-road parking if you can’t get into the main car park for the two premises (at the front and back).

Price guide

From a few euros upwards for small gifts. The sky’s almost the limit if you are going for a complete redesign/refitting.
