A lovely view of heaven

Every part of this lovely space—from the soothing spa, to the airy dining room with its open kitchen, to the seven individually designed guest rooms—induces a profound sense of well-being. It doesn’t hurt that guest rooms open onto a broad swath of windswept gardens and, beyond, the blue Atlantic. The interiors are just as pleasing, composed of glass, stone, and rough-hewn wood, with olive trees or lavender never far from reach. The result is a design-conscious place that would blur the lines between indoors and out if it weren’t for the almost folkloric details and eco-sensitivity that reflect the taste of owners Gonçalo Alves and Marta Fonseca: handmade candlesticks on the restaurant tables, silk embroidered pillows in rooms. An on-site organic garden supplies the restaurant with vegetables and herbs, (hidden) solar panels provide electricity, and much of the furniture is made from repurposed timber. via
