Our hundred year old quinta has been redesigned and adapted to modern times. The history of the farm has been preserved or brought back where possible. In the holiday homes, various original details are present, such as antique doors, old fireplaces, Portuguese tile floors, curly wrought iron work and wooden shutters. In the furnishings, we have used colours from our surroundings and natural materials from the region, such as hand-baked terracotta floor tiles, marble, cane and wood. The tableware, sinks and garden lamps were made by a local potter. We also used old materials to make small pieces of furniture and gave new life to discarded furniture. All this gives the accommodation its own atmosphere, complemented by many plants for an extra healthy living environment. And don't worry: you get to enjoy the plants, we keep them alive :)
