What we like about this property

We love the story of this once abonded ruin and how it has been reborn as a unique (and chic!) village compound. Clearly restored with great care and an eye for detail and history, there’s also a funky modern spirit here with an eclectic selection of vintage pieces and eye catching art and detail.  

Description

Situated on a slope of Serra do Sicó in the Beiras region of Portugal, this village had been abandoned for over seventy years. Discovered and resurrected by a group of friends that were charmed by it’s unique beauty and idyllic location, the entire village of eleven houses was restored and brought back to life. Carefully respecting the spirit of the region and the historic aesthetics of the structures, traditional handcrafting and construction techniques were used to recover and showcase the authentic character of the houses. It’s a contemporary but faithful renovation that uses traditional limestone block walls, and bright whitewashed interiors with gleaming concrete floors. Add an eclectic mix of mid century furnishings, and a hand picked selection of ethnic objet d’art from around the world, and it’s a fascinating mix. Each of the eleven houses features fully equipped kitchens and sleep between two to five guests.

The restaurant provides simple and delicious locally sourced fare nightly from a rotating menu and a few breakfast snacks in the mornings. The extensive rambling gardens and terraces offer plenty of fresh air and unspoiled country vistas and a lovely shared pool. You can watch the swans and ducks on the small lake and enjoy fresh eggs from the house chickens. This is a truly unique retreat where you can embrace the concept of peace and serenity of the country life with stylish contemporary comforts.
