Firefly House

Formerly the Dutch ambassador’s house in Portugal, today Firefly Quinta has lost none of its opulent charm and comfort. Extensively renovated by the owners in 2021, the bright and airy south-facing house features 6 double bedrooms, with stripped wood floorboards across three floors.

The principal entertaining area features a quirky and colourful custom-made kitchen and Smeg range oven. In a cosy corner there is a wood burner and sofa, perfect for relaxing drinks in front of the fire, with views over the hill. The inter-connected dining room table opens onto the terrace with huge opening glass doors, allowing for barbecue and al fresco dining options, so the entertaining space inside and out, is amazing and flexible whatever the weather. On the extensive terrace area, there is ample space with sun bed loungers, sofas, Weber barbecue and dining table. All with forest and distant ocean views.
