Casa do Lanço is part of a vineyard property of about 25,000m2 and is located in a transition zone between the Laurissilva forest and the agricultural lands of São Vicente. On the terraces of the vineyard we can see the Tinta Negra Mole and Verdelho grape varieties, these grape varieties that produce the famous Madeira Wine.The property is in a group of houses with several hundred-year-old trees, with a large oak tree dating back over 250 years and several endemic Laurissilva species such as tis, vinháticos, barbusanos and laurels.The house has a decoration with several details, in a fusion between the classic and the contemporary, which accompanies the whole tradition of a family home. The house features a bedroom with two singles in traditional style with an outside access door so you can wake up with a fantastic view of the backyard and gardens of the house.Inside the property you can enjoy a walk along the stream, the gardens or the backyard outside, which allows you to have breakfast (not included), made every morning by the home keeper.During your stay you can participate in the process of viticulture or purchase the wines available in the house.The mother house has belonged to the same family since its inception and maintains its original architecture although it has been renovated and modernization works.THE NEIGHBORHOOD OVERVIEWThe house is situated in the northern part of the island, more precisely in the Rosário, parish of the county of São Vicente.
