Since we moved to Portugal almost 30 years ago we have enjoyed gardening, horse riding, painting, hiking and living of the land. After living in the Alentejo for years we have nestled in the foothills of the Peneda/Geres in northern Portugal, an area we consider to be the most beautiful region of Portugal. If you, like us, love unspoiled nature and an authentic lifestyle, we are convinced that you will agree.
- Hans & Kate
The position of the house on top of a hill,nestled amongst the trees with the stream running all year, far away from the sound of traffic.
The deck on the left is facing east. Perfect for breakfast in the morning. With the sound of the stream passing through the woodland below,in the distance the medieval tower of the 'Torre de Aguia' and vineyards.
Enjoy country living as it is intended. Comfortable and stylish in a beautifully restored cottage with many original details.
Hot water and electricity are solar powered.
Sleep peacefully in the large upstairs bedroom that has windows on all sides. Open the windows to hear the sound of the stream running just below. You will wake up to the sound of the goats’ bells in the ancient vines across the valley.
