"A Pristine Example of Perfect Portuguese Architecture and Country Living – All Within 30 Minutes of Lisbon" - Reviewed by Lisa

WIXXY PICK

LISA PERFECT PICK: “Such a lovely property – you really get to experience the grandeur of the countryside but so close to the centre. A great two-destination pick.”

The spectacular, 16th-century estate is an exquisite testament to the thirteen generations of Da Cunha family love and nurturing. The home was carefully restored in 2003 to an elevated level of luxury and comfort – without losing one charming detail.

Whether outside or in, the immaculate property is a joy to behold.

Breathtakingly pristine gardens abound, ideal for whiling away sunny days or hosting an elegant black-tie cocktail. Not to mention the surrounding 75 hectares of working vineyards, which you are invited to stroll at any time.

“The renovated villa was a delight, with four large salons, each with its own distinctive flair. There was even a chapel!”

Dan and Carla, Pennsylvania, USA

The majestic courtyard sets the tone for what lies beyond the regal front door.

Living areas are large, the dramatic tiled flooring is eye-catching, adding a touch of drama and high design to otherwise perfectly traditional Portuguese country living rooms.

Elegant priceless tapestries and antiques equally add to the history and tell stories of generations past of this proud and oh-so-friendly family.
