We've been spending some time in Spain these last couple of weeks--architecturally speaking, that is--and so now we're traveling east, to Portugal, and the Casa Fazenda, which is loosely translated as 'farm house.'.
This home, located in Amarantina, doesn't look like a lot from the front, but once you get inside, and then walk out to the pool, you'll see why it rates a place in Architecture Wednesday.
I love all the different colors and textures, the stone and the wood, and the glass and the view. This looks like a home built for a party and created for a siesta at the same time.
