Weekender: Boulder House

Found in the mountains in Fafe, of northern Portugal, Casa do Ponedo (‘House of Stone’) is a rustic masterpiece of a house that has been called a modern day ‘Flintstones’ house. Constructed with four giant slabs of boulders, it may seem archaic from the outside, but it is fully functional, boasting all of the amenities common with current residential dwellings, featuring a fireplace and swimming pool. Another added bonus to Casa do Ponedo is the spectacular views it offers over the entire range of the Fafe mountains and throughout the hillside. Built in the 1970s, it can be admired from the outside only.
