“Request the housekeeper to prepare nightly dinners - you'll be glad you did! ” - Reviewed by Lisa
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 getaway 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.
Built on terraces the property surrounds the central pool terrace and takes full advantage of the magnificent views. With warm wood floors and plush furnishings, you’ll find plenty of places to relax at the end of a long day hiking, sightseeing or wine tasting. A game of pool is a fun way to bring your group together when the sun goes down as is morning chatter around the heavily laden breakfast table. The housekeeper prepares a hearty breakfast daily with all the best the area has to offer, she is also available to cook regional specialties for a dinner.
