An appealing, majestic manor house built in 1778, the villa offers a remarkable opportunity to appreciate a genuine piece of classical magnificence in the north of Portugal.
A splendid white front welcomes you as you wind your way along the tree-lined driveway and maneuver into the large courtyard on arrival, with ample free parking space for the whole group.
The house is pleasantly obscured from view by a thriving spread of old trees. Inside you are met by a series of lovingly restored rooms beaming with historical charm.
The grand piano in the dining area, a brilliant cluster of shared spaces, including a formal dining room, casual living rooms and a splendid games room, feature the wonderful combination of historic character and modern luxury.
Antique furniture sits gently among impeccably restored rooms of style and magnificence, framed between floors and ceilings of polished wood. The casual living space is the ideal spot to enjoy an evening, with a pool table for all to appreciate.
What's more, between the numerous elegant rooms sits a large central courtyard, bathing the house in the natural light of day and creating a feeling of unity with the outside world.
Every one of the ten rooms is brilliantly rich in history and at the same time basic in design. Conventional designed rugs sit beneath antique drawers and dressers, while superb bed frames make an astonishing centrepiece for each room.
There are seven double bedrooms and three twin bedrooms, all of which appreciate private ensuite facilities and central heating. The Alentejo-style décor demonstrates a respect for the history of the house, intensified by the fresh paint and wonderfully restored floors and vaulted ceilings.
Complementing the wonderful interior spaces is an absolutely delightful garden. A significant private swimming pool sits just past the main entrance to the house and has space for the whole group to spend some time together in the sun.
Sun loungers and benches, shaded and unshaded, encompass the pool to give the ideal relaxation station for the hot and hazy afternoons. Undoubtedly, inside the property, there is even a little museum with a collection of vintage vehicles, the enthusiasm and passion of the current owner!
