Sometimes you visit a place and you are just speechless about the atmosphere, the calmness. When we visited a small village in Portugal: Ferraria de São João, we spend our days at the amazing VN Nature Houses. The houses are located in what was once Vale do Ninho (Nest valley) cottage. In 2014 they rebuilt 3 houses, a project thinking in your comfort and respect by nature with several ecological innovative solutions such as water recover, solar energy, underfloor heating system and a natural pool. The pool is probably the most beautiful pool we’ve ever seen. The 3 houses all have a huge terrace (with access to the pool and garden) and the interior is clean, minimal and warm at the same time. They offer many activities for sport lovers but also for families. We had so much fun at the goat cheese workshop. It was an experience we will never forget. The owners are super friendly and can tell you all about the environment. We had a lovely stay and if you plan a trip to Portugal this place is a must visit!
