A house of memories
Before we describe this building we have a story to tell.
A few decades ago two young people in love decided to get married. Being the parents of Elvas' bride, they chose this beautiful Alentejo city as the stage for their happy union. Their life together continued between Lisbon and then other continents and so the years passed until it was time for them to stay in Portuguese lands and look for a new home with the potential for a small "guest house". His search was based in the Lisbon region and, suddenly, the alert appears, either by mistake or the work of new technologies, for an old house, full of potential and charm, for sale. They fell in love right away. The only question is that it wasn't for sale in Lisbon after all, but in Elvas. Compelled by their sensitivity and spirit of adventure, they came to the city, the genesis of their life together, and could not resist. They bought the old and despised building, which had been closed to the world for many years.

2019 would be a new life cycle for these walls. The entire building has been rehabilitated and renovated. They kept the original elements of charm as much as possible and reproduced others. It was a meticulous and lengthy process, with the unforeseen common to this type of mission, but they finally managed to dignify the building, give it comfort and uniqueness, as illustrated by its pleasant terrace, on the 3rd floor, where we enjoy an incredible view and the freshness of a mini pool.

The "guest house" thus emerged in a more intimate and tasteful accommodation concept, in the historic center of Elvas. Sometimes other types of projects speak louder. With a feeling of mission accomplished, the owners now intend to pass on their legacy to special people.
