Summer houses

A room with a view
All houses are built according to the architectural style of the south - Moorish influence (they have occupied part of the Iberian Peninsula until the 12th/13th centuries).
Carrapateira, Vicentine Coast, southwestern Portugal

We watch a program called HGTV over here which tells about people "house-hunting." What I've learned is that houses like these in little villages all over Europe are VERY expensive!

They are gorgeous, though. Looks like a wonderful place to live.

Fantastic! Fun blog! I would love to paint and sketch out on the porches of these places ... they are amazing.

By the way, thank for visiting my blog. Yes, Milan is fantastic and I too love Italy. I am back to Rome later this spring and can't wait!

Hope this finds you well.
Cheers!

Beautiful.... and very picturesque, cosy and nice.
I have been to the Azores and it reminded me of some of the places there....
Very nice shots!
Wish i was there.... after 10 weeks with snow and ice, I think spring will be here soon...

I could easily see myself spend each and every day at that swimming pool. What a beautiful view from there.
