The largest of all our rooms – taking up an entire corner of the house – with a private, curved, wrought iron balcony that looks out over the rustling trees of R. Marquês Subserra and Rua da Artilharia 1. Crisp 19th Century moulding and architraves in the bedroom and the sitting room clash happily with eye-popping Jupiter-10 wallpaper. Bold, blue and beautiful the suite feels all the more unique for the humorous antiques that Filipa and António have found to dot the room.
The huge bathroom is richly textured: smart crittall panels delineate the shower area, contrasting with the handmade textured tiles that sit above the modern Duravit basins and softly moulded tadelakt walls that awaken all the senses.
We are Filipa and Antonio Fortunato and, together with our four children (and our dog!), we have taken a shared dream and transformed it in to an exceptional reality. Casa Fortunato is the result of many years of planning and many more of love and we can’t wait to show you what we’ve achieved.
The concept of ‘wellness’ is often misunderstood and dismissed as being too much like hard work but we think that the key areas of one’s life: social connectedness, exercise, nutrition, sleep, emotional health, intellectual curiosity and spirituality are, in fact, just different facets of one wellness jewel (you!)
