About the boat house

The boat is a catamaran with sleeping capacity for 4 people where approximately 30m2 are of covered area. With a modernist design, the rationality of the space, comfort, utility and good ventilation and lighting, was prioritised to give this boat its unique character.The components and materials used in its construction give it its own identity, as demonstrated by the exterior cork walls, in line with the concept of ecotourism that characterises the whole project.

Inside you have a bedroom with a double bed, a toilet and a living room with kitchenette that can easily be converted into another bedroom.

On the rooftop you can relax and soak up the sun with a 360º view over the Ria Formosa.
