About the owner: My main work is to make knitwear collections, for my family’s company. I also own a construction company that builds lovely Portuguese traditional houses, all located in rural villages at 30 mins from Lisbon.
My wife she loves cats, is fluent in several languages and works as a teacher in a High School. We are a couple in our fifties.
Why the Owner Chose Caldas Da Rainha: As Silver Coast is a fantastic region ( that we knew very well), we decided to build there our dream property. After discover the land, we found out the place so charming that we decided immediately to buy it and build there the villa of our dreams. We just wanted the best and we did not spare any efforts to achieve our aims. The result was a fantastic villa and an architectural master piece completely turned to the luxury relax, the sun and the views.
