What we like about this property

A stunning architectural home in Portugal’s only national park, Gerês, this property stands dramatically on stilts overlooking the reservoir. Designed around nature, it has huge windows and terraces to make the most of its surroundings. A truly memorable holiday home in Portugal.

Description

If you’re looking for a holiday home in Portugal, this is one of those properties that makes your jaw drop a little. An architectural gem, created by Carlos Castanheira, it’s located on a hillside in the Gerês National Reserve with stunning views over the reservoir. It’s a large space, constructed from timber and glass, with even larger decks – perfect for three couples sharing.

The house is elevated from the ground by 52 timber pillars, and almost the entire structure of the house has been left exposed. Interiors are wide open with wooden floors and ceilings, and floor-to-ceiling windows that wrap around the whole building. With the views through the windows, there’s no need for decor, although there are occasional nods to the natural surroundings in the form of antlers and butterflies.

From the living room, guests have access to a large terrace with dining space, and for each of the three bedrooms there is access to a balcony at a slightly different level from the larger one. The house sleeps 8 guests – in one master with a king, and two rooms with singles and bunks. The large living area is divided by a central fireplace, and includes a sleek contemporary kitchen. 

The house is accessed by a bridge at the roof level, but it has a private boat dock too.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Air conditioning and heating, washer/dryer, free parking, cable TV, iron, hair dryer.

AROUND
