It was the owners, Marta and Gonçalo's dream to create this delightful coastal hideaway in Portugal. An inspired blend of strong modern architecture, cleverly furnished with an eclectic mix of upcycled lighting, hand-crafted furniture and numerous resourceful elements. Originality echoes throughout its entirety and the clear commitment to sustainability is an endearing attribute.
The rooms, all individually designed, are imaginative and quirky with open fireplaces and either a private terrace with sea view or private garden and very out-of-the-ordinary bathrooms - vast jacuzzi baths and drencher showers. For families and friends, a collection of 3 bedroom villas - with sun terrace, swimming pool and barbecue, offer that additional space and exclusivity. The owners and charming team are passionate about eco-living and actively involve their guests along the way. Meat and fish is locally sourced and the chef will start his day wandering the extensive organic gardens collecting ingredients which will determine his daily menu. Every evening the circle of fire is lit to enjoy an aperitif under the stars and dinner can be enjoyed under the pine trees, on the lake or in the cosy and softly-lit dining room.
