António Sá and Ana Pedrosa ran the world before settling in the Montesinho Natural Park. She wrote and he photographed for different travel magazines. In Portugal, they lived in Espinho, but had the dream of moving to the countryside with their children. “Trás-os-Montes was a passion” and, in a small village near Bragança, they found the land that convinced them to settle down.
Passionate about the surroundings, where trees such as chestnut trees, oaks, birches and cherry trees ensure that the park changes with the four seasons – “in autumn the forest turns yellow and orange, then comes winter and we have snow”, says António – in 2019 the couple inaugurated birch studios to “share this landscape”. There are four studios with generous balconies, with sustainability concerns and equipped with kitchenette, because “the idea is really to give autonomy and encourage to explore the surroundings”.
To see nature with other eyes, there are also photographic tours, guided by António Sá, by appointment.
