About Maria Machado
When I met my husband he showed me what he thinks to be the most beautiful coast of Portugal, the Silver Coast. I love Algarve but I had to agree with him. Beautiful sandy beaches with fantastic waves for surfing and on top of it, not too crowded. In 1997, when an architect friend decided to sell his house in a magnificent spot of Baleal Peninsula we didn't think twice. Since then we have transformed that small apartment in our holidays refuge and enjoyed the most memorable weekends and holidays in Baleal.
Maria Machado purchased this Apartment in 1997
Why Maria Machado chose Baleal
Baleal Island is a small but wonderful Island in the Atlantic, just 45 minutes drive from Lisbon. The coast line, the sea and the beaches are unique. Every sunset is glorious and different from the others. The Island only has residential buildings, some of them from the 19th century. It is very quiet and since everyone knows each other and the beaches are in a walking distance it is safe for children to stay outside playing with each other.
What makes this Apartment unique
The house is in a magnificent spot 20 meters over the Ocean.It was built by its first owner, an architect who planned the house to make the owner and its guests feel like being sailing. Indeed the sea is always present wherever you are in the apartment. It doesn't really matter if the weather is warm and sunny or if it is cold and stormy because the Island is always a beautiful place to be. I usually say that more than a beautiful spot Baleal is a state of mind.
