About

The Âncora Artist Residence (AAR) comprises of three holiday homes. The main house, the former Grape Press Annex and the House at the Gate.  These are casa de pedras but with modern twists.

The interiors are a combination of wall to wall art work, vintage design, handmade lamps, tables and accessories and mainly locally made by Marco.

At the back of the main house, over the full length, is a balcony that you can access both from the master bedroom and the living room. You have a beautiful view over the mountains. The Annex has a terrace with direct acces to the garden. The House at the Gate is a luxurious, modern, light and transparent loft and is totally separated from the other houses.

From the AAR you can explore the fascinating Serra de Arga, ancient mountain and terrain with cascades and water springs.  There are a great variety of walks, you can sleep at a quintinha in the middle of nowhere for EUR 3 per night. There are out of the world places to have picknicks.

The AAR is the perfect place for a short stop when you are walking to Santiago de Compostela. A very comfortable bed, a warm shower and a luxurious and healthy breakfast will prepare you for the next leg to your final goal.
