Stuffy is in the past, the future is blue. Blue Sea, Blue Sky and Blue House. What we have here is a charming, fun and easy-going holiday house, situated in Monte das Nespereiras in the Serra de Grândola, 115 km south of Lisbon. Sofia and Afonso started renovating the existing house and adjoining ruins in 2008, with the summer and beach in mind. And why not, it is situated in the coastal area of the Alentejo, a 10 minute drive from the beach of Aberta Nova, one of the 7 “Praias Douradas” (Golden Beachs) in Portugal.

The easy going nature of the blue House is evident as soon as you arrive – forget the impersonal modern house or luxury villa. Here you´ll find the most relaxed atmosphere, with all the necessary comforts, for an uncomplicated (that is the operative word) and easy stay.

With beautiful sun sets, a view onto the sea and 7.5 hectares of cork and pine trees all around you, this is an ideal hide-out for a peaceful spring or summer holiday - with children or amongst friends.

A stay at the Blue House may make you forget you are in Europe. The atmosphere is a little Moroccan or coastal Brazil in fact. In the summer you walk around bare foot and leave your watch and mobile behind. It’s one of the reasons that make this place special.

It is somewhat reminiscent of a small village with several independent living areas often divided by flower patches, pots and shrubs.
