A special place in any season of the year, the House of Horta do Carranquita is framed in half a hectare of land with natural vegetation preserved, on the edge of the small village Gouveia, set in the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park. There is a small garden with a few farm animals, including a couple of black sheep that are in charge of the land maintenance. We also have four dogs and three cats, so this is the ideal place for animal lovers!
The interior is spacious and bright with a pleasant and cozy atmosphere. The living room is large with different zones where you can choose to see a movie, read, play a game or chat with friends. On colder nights there is the comfort and beauty of the fireplace.
The balcony that surrounds the house on three directions becomes an irresistible invitation to go out and enjoy the scenery, sounds and scents of the surrounding nature during any season of the year.
The rooms are very comfortable, with simple décor and an environment conducive to rest and tranquility. There is a double bedroom and 3 bedrooms with twin beds. The shared bathroom has a shower and bath and serves the four rooms. There is another half bathroom that services the rest of the house.
The kitchen is very well equipped. We don't usually use microwave oven, but if absolutely necessary, this can be arranged.
Outside the grounds are inviting to go out and find a quiet corner to read, sit and listen to the different sounds always present , or else have some tea, or a drink and relax on the balcony at the end of the day.
