The Home

What could be sweeter than warm summer days spent in the heart of Portugal’s premier wine district sipping a nice chilled regional wine, that you just picked up from the local vintner, in your private pool with glorious views over the steeped vine terraces below. Or curling up fireside during the Christmas holidays in the cozy living room discussing the merits of a local red superior with wonderful aromas of a traditional local dinner wafting from the kitchen.

This completely reconstructed 19th century charming home with its local schist stone walls and all creature comforts makes the ideal get away both Summer and Winter. Love and care have been lavished on this property with lots of whimsical décor notes that were perfectly thought through for the location.
