When we found this cottage in 2009, it was a pigsty, cattle shed and a small living area.
We have renovated the cottage to a high standard and raised the roof and doorways so that you can actually stand up inside! We tried to be thoughtful during the renovation to keep a Portuguese feel whilst acknowledging the Northern European need for light. We left a lot of things crooked, because that's how we found them and we feel that it lends character to this lovely little house.
It's well insulated and has double glazed windows (all with mosquito nets) and half a metre thick walls to keep the intensity of the summer heat out. We had air-conditioning installed last year, hot water comes from a solar panel (you can flick the switch to heat it normally if we have a few days of cloud). There is a woodburner and underfloor heating in the bathroom, and you can of course you the aircon to warm...
