Living in Portugal

In "Living in Portugal" Anne de Stoop shares her infectious delight for Portugal via a tour of the diverse country: the Minho and Douro regions in northern Portugal, renowned for their fertile landscapes and port wines; the busy markets of Oporto; elegant country estates and lavish gardens, whose sophisticated designs reflect a rich architectural heritage; the urban pleasures and baroque opulence of Lisbon; the sparkling white villages of the sun-drenched Alentejo; and the unspoiled beaches of the Algarve.

Anne De Stoop (Author), Jerome Darblay (Photographer), Caroline Champenois (Photographer). Anne de Stoop, director of the Musee Mathurin Meheut in Lamballe, France, previously worked at the Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga in Lisbon. She published several books about the stately homes of Portugal.
