Casa de Santo Antão is a family project. It has come about not from the need to restore a building but, above all, from the desire to preserve family history. 
The house was built by the current owner's grandfather, and two generations of one of the branches of the Antão family were born here. In this house the walls tell stories; each stone was placed by hand, the wood-fired oven was ingeniously built, just like the whole structure of the house. These works are still in place today to be deservedly admired. The desire to revitalise a family home, enhancing it and valuing all its history, was so fundamental that it led to the owners and their descendants moving from the capital to this rural paradise. Casa de Santo Antão is above all a family home whose doors are open to friends.
