In a valley at the base of Portugal’s Serra da Estrela, the highest mountain range in the country, a modern farmhouse sits in 44 acres of primarily pine forest. Casa NaMora blends the old with the new, expanding upon the original mid-20th-century building with two new free-standing structures.

Casa Dois is a converted fish warehouse that sleeps four. The architects took the small two-storey structure and converted it into a minimalists’ paradise with plenty of outdoor terrace space, a feature typical of the traditional Algarve home, so guests can enjoy the warm climate.
