Interaction with guests
We are passionate food & wine lovers from Wales who moved from London to Lisbon over 24 years ago and have never looked back. Although we have thoroughly enjoyed living in the Greater Lisbon area, it is now time to move to a region we fell in love with more than 12 years ago. Marvão, Alto Alentejo, 'the Provence of Portugal' as some people call it, is an area of outstanding natural beauty with much to offer the discerning tourist. Our aim is to create a tranquil environment, providing our guests with the ideal opportunity to relax and unwind and share our experience of all that this wonderful region has to offer. Dewi & Clare
