Misericordia de Boavista
Big vacation home Alentejo/Portugal. Retreat to Nature
The 40 Hectare grounds of Misericordia do Boavista were bought by Josef August in 1997. He fell in love with its solitude position, the extraordinary intense smell of rockroses and the peace the idyllic scene evokes to its visitors. After overcoming countless burdens he inaugurated several years later a villa that nowadays can host up to 12 people. Misericordia is self-sufficient, i.e. water is provided by a fountain and electricity is generated by solar energy.
