Tucked away in an unbeatable location, the houses are immersed in a quiet and relaxing 12 ha citrus groves environment, surrounded by carob and olive trees. Traditional elements witnessing old rural practices remain untouched, such as a circular tiled area (EIRA), once used to dry fruits and cereals.
Elevated pateos (“açoteias”) were also used in the region to dry fruits and seeds. Traditional açoteias were kept, each house accommodating a private terrace with astonishing sea views over the trees, a perfect leisure spot to enjoy the sun and the silence. Each house also has a large front pateo with a shading pergola and outdoor table set. You can grill meat, fish and vegetables on the small barbeque set, or simply enjoy reading outside, sunbathing, or a relaxing sunset drink.
The former watering tank of the farm was reconstructed into a 9.5 m x 3m swimming pool. The pool is shallow, 1.5m depth, and it´s bordered by the traditional Santa Catarina tiles. The pool is unattended and shared with all guests of Quinta da Pintassilga.
