We used to say living as a God in France. I think it is fair to say that in Portugal you can live as a God and Emperor, especially in the North of Portugal. The weather is great with a perfect balance between the sun and rainfall that guarantees beautiful nature and vegetation. The variety of food is great with nice and fresh fruits and vegetables.
But the outstanding craftmanship makes Portugal really different from the other European countries. Look at this beautiful closet which was made from old doors in the living room. Is not it simply beautiful?
