casa-mae 1

Tired of the finance world in Paris, Véronique opened this sunny holiday house in an almost 7,000sqm vegetable garden. Overlooking the old historic city and the sea, Casa Mae comprises three very different houses combining old and new, traditions and modern design featuring Portuguese craftsmanship… pretty!

What started as a project for a weekend house ended in a beautiful small hotel.In order to recover the «soul» of the pre-existent constructions and respecting the local traditions, four separate houses were built: two of wood and reeds, and the other two in white concrete, all with thatched roofs. Casas na Areia is only one hour south from Lisbon in a region called Comporta, known for the beautiful sandy beaches, tasty food and great wine…

cool places : the pine cliffs in portugal

1

Portugal is a country I really don’t know but deserves a visit. I have been to Lisbon like 10 years ago but the region I would like to discover is the south. When we were planning our New year’s trip to Andalusia, driving to Portugal was something we thought about but since we had never been there, decided to stay in Spain.

This hotel looks absolutely gorgeous, the pine trees and the landscape kind of remind me of California, don’t you think?
