Funky Farmhouse with Private Pool in Secluded Alentejo
“Proximity to the lovely nearby river and the generous size of the living areas make this a wonderful long or short stay home for a couple or small family” - Reviewed by Lisa
A funky farmhouse exuding countryside fun melded with tradition. The Alentejo region of Portugal is renowned for its traditional arts and crafts which are revered today and promoted throughout the world. This comfortable home pays a modern-day homage to the colors and artisan techniques of the past.
A large open living /dining room decked out in hues of green plays off the lush surrounding countryside. The fully equipped kitchen is off the dining room creating a great space for relaxed country living.
Patio doors open to the private pool and deck, ideal for family days in the sun or al fresco dinners under a million stars.
A mezzanine floor houses two cozy bedrooms which transform this playful home into an idyllic rural luxey bolthole.
