An oasis of silence reserved for wine lovers, in the hills a few kilometers from Coimbra. Designed by Carvalho Araújo, Quinta de Lemos is a buen retiro with three rooms, a restaurant and a swimming pool at the disposal of guests of the winery of the same name. Embedded in the surrounding landscape, thanks to the natural difference in level, the construction is almost invisible from a distance: consisting of a single long and sunken story, at first sight the only trace of its presence is a sinuous concrete roof that follows the contours of the hill. A special place. And one to try, straightaway.
