Accommodation, artists' studios and more
The Centre in Portugal is located in a stone building of 200 years old; a typical Portuguese Monte. It consists of a main house, two cottages, four artists’ studios, several open-air working places and a swimming pool. The slide show on this page gives an impression).
Seven apartments, a piano room and a meeting room are in the main house. Each apartment has a living room (5x5m) with two beds, a working table, chairs, a little kitchen with cooking utensils, a bathroom and a private terrace with garden furniture.
In addition there are two cottages with similar facilities but more space.
Casa Miradouro (6x9m) has a great view into all directions. Its living room is big enough to separate a part for a working studio.
Casa Vicente has three rooms (each 5x5m; one or two can be converted into a studio).
Several artists´studios are available. One is very big: 25x10m, and two are medium sized: 5x10m and 6x10m. A room of 5x5 m in the main house can be converted into a studio. Also in the main house is a room with piano, guitar, flute, cagon, several other instruments and music books.
Working outside is possible nearly always, everywhere and without charge. Apart from the surrounding nature there are also options near to the house: a tiled circular place of 15m in diameter, a patio of 6x9 m, a pergola with shadow tissue (3,5 x8 m) and an excavation site (20x10m, of which parts are paved). Within 15 minutes walking are some intriguing abandoned buildings and lots of nature.
There are also a swimming pool, several terraces, a small rose garden and other places for leisure.
