I am always in awe of what some people can do with stones!

Linda casa, lembra um tipo de castelo, com as pedras, deve ser bem agradável e fresco nos dias de verão!
Bom domingo!

I love stone houses, and this is gorgeous! Especially with the vines growing over much of it.

I love the steps and the door hidden under wine.

This place is fantastic. I'd love to see the inside. The stone is wonderful.

Stone houses are my favorite. We had a limestone facade on our house in Ocala. This is one of the nicest I've seen. Great image, too. It is a feast for the eyes and what an incredible view the owners must have. Hard to believe it is so old.

Different from the usual whitewashed houses

House with sea view. Great building.

I like the idea behind this house, the way they built it and the location chosen. Maybe it is a bit strange but stately and original.

Impressive. I fancy myself living in a stone house - something like that. Feels grand.

That's a fantastic little oceanside "castle!"

There is just something about a stone house...so earthy and natural. I've always wanted a stone house, but alas, it was not to be.

Quando andava no ciclo preparatório na Parede (há trinta e tal anos) Tinha dois colegas, irmãos, que moravam numa casa (mais moderna) que há dentro do terreno desta casa de pedra. A casa de pedra, na altura era dos avós deles. Estive muitas vezes lá em casa mas, com muita pena minha, nunca entrei na de pedra!
Esta casa também me faz lembrar a minha praia preferida, da linha: as Avencas. Que saudades!

Who wouldn't want to live there? It's not only romantic, but really beautifully done.
