This country house beautifully stands amidst its ancestral trees, unexpectedly surprising its guests with two enchanting swimming pools and a charming tennis court.

The name ‘Assentos’ (house of records) was given to this house as it was once the place where agreements concerning local rents were kept.

Today this splendid manor house remains as an ancestral monument to the 17th century. Its large, grandiose apartments are traditional stone cottages, with wooden floors and ceilings. The living-room still keeps its traditional granite walls and a comfortable fireplace, tranquil armchairs and an interesting library, turning it into the perfect setting for a great visit. Quiet country elegance and outstanding location make it one of a kind for true Nature lovers and Art Connaisseurs.

This splendid manor house is curiously named as it was once used to store official documents relating to the income and rents of the local population, the word 'assentos' meaning records. Its spacious apartments converted from traditional stone cottages are supported by two swimming pools and tennis courts.
