Casa no Are is the "real Portugal"
Casa no Are is the "real Portugal"
We enjoyed the "real Portugal" during our stay at Casa No Ar in Penedo. The gardens were stunning, the cottage was authentic right down to the antique farm table and benches and the hostess was very kind and very attentive. Our family of 8 enjoyed cooking meals in the quaint kitchen with hidden microwave and a dishwasher. The local grocery store was terrific and the owner spoke English. Driving up and down the roads gave us a terrific sense of adventure and made the trip exciting. We had a cooking class by the owners son, Antonio, and it was the highlight of my trip. Antonioºs restaurant, Bistro, is wonderful and only a few minutes from the farm. Sintra is close by as were beaches for surfing. All the gang agreed, "Casa no Ar is the real deal!"

Year Purchased: 1979
About the owner: I was born in Hereford England...but travelled extensively before I found my 'utopia' in Penedo Portugal....a small typical Portuguese village set high up on the mountain with breathtaking Atlantic coast views, beautiful unpolluted beaches just 5 minute drive away, Sintra's historical monuments and palaces nearby, and a half hour drive into the capital city of LIsbon. My children were born and brought up in Casa no Ar, where there are still many of their books and games Anthony (born in 1983) now runs his own restaurant Bistro and catering business which is great for guests who wish personally delivered meals, a special dinner party or even small wedding gathering. Francis (born in 1985) is now a web designer with lots of famous California film star client...he is responsable for my own website a great help to promoting my properties. I now live next door, and it gives me great pleasure to see guests enjoying Casa no Ar...with its many happy family memories...winters around the big open fireplace in the country kitchen; barbecues around the pool in the summer...and lots of fun beach times.
