Montinho was rebuilt in the 1980's. It consisted of two small farmhouses which were transfered to one villa by German Klaus Harmsen. In 1990 the house was bought by the English sculptor Collin Figue who added a swimming pool in 2000 and named the villa "Montinho" which means " small hill". End 2014 we fell in love with Montinho and so it came in our Dutch possession. In 2016 the house was totally overhauled und upgraded by the Portugese builder Jorge Lamy of Heliodorolamy.pt under architecture of Studio Aarssen.
