Wind your way through whitewashed houses, olive orchards, and the odd mule to this upside-down house high above the village. Its position is spectacular and wherever you are in the house that view is never far away. Artists Gordon and Ian have made sure every room brings the outside in – throw the doors open onto sunny verandas and wide terraces.The living area has plenty of space but outside is where you’ll want to be. For breakfasts on the veranda, lunch by the pool and enjoy an evening barbecue on the terrace . Gordon’s ceramic sculptures contrast with the greenery.Hike from the door through unspoilt countryside, walk to the village café for traditional local food, take a trip to the market at Sao Luis or drive to the west coast for a day at the beach with a picnic.
