Item description for Living in Portugal (New Edition) by Anne De Stoop, Jerome Darblay & Caroline Champenois...
Anne de Stoop shares her infectious delight for Portugal via a tour of the diverse country: the Minho and Douro regions in northern Portugal, renowned for their fertile landscapes and port wines; the busy markets of Oporto; elegant country estates and lavish gardens, whose sophisticated designs reflect a rich architectural heritage; the urban pleasures and baroque opulence of Lisbon; the sparkling white villages of the sun-drenched Alentejo; and the unspoiled beaches of the Algarve. Anne de Stoop, director of the Musee Mathurin Meheut in Lamballe, France, previously worked at the Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga in Lisbon. She published several books about the stately homes of Portugal. Jerome Darblay's photographs appear regularly in Interiors and Elle Decoration magazines and were featured in Living in Venice (Flammarion, 2000) and Living in Istanbul (Flammarion, 1994). Caroline Champenois, an interior design specialist, collaborated with photographer Chris Baker on the book Château Cuisine. Claire Baudoin runs a tour company in Lisbon.

Great Book! Jul 17, 2008
This is a perfect book to have on your coffee table. The pictures inside the book are amazing and the information is great too. Just looking through it, you can see the culture of the country. Highly Recommended!
Gorgeous, but not a travel book Oct 5, 2000
This book turned up in a search for travel books on Portugal. It is a lovely photographic tour of Portual, with a little special emphasis on the homes of the nobility and wealthy business families. The inns and hotels that are mentioned in an off-hand manner are very pricey. However, once you've visited here you might well find this book to be a lovely remembrance of your trip.
A beautiful start Apr 10, 2000
Not really about living in Portugal, but rather, a nice resource to start deciding where one might want to live or travel in that pretty little country. It contains brief, well written summaries of Portugal's distinctive geographic regions, and is beautifully photographed. A large book for displaying a livingroom coffee table, and a nice read on a rainy day.
I've been there... Feb 1, 2000
Not a light 5 stars, but well deserved. "Living" does not denote a short stay, but an investment. A beautiful book of very fine pictures. Includes many 'coordinated', decorated interior photographs of interesting household living quarters. The copy is well considered, and without "fluff", but written with a tender understanding of the country and its people. I have found this book to be a wealth of information and enjoyment. (don't look here for 'where to dine' -- it's in a different class).
A lovely cocktail table book, not a guide Apr 10, 1998
The title led me to think that this book might be a guide to actually living in Portugal. It is nothing of a sort, but rather a beautiful book of pictures of life in Portugal. Lovely to look at, with the usual tending-to-purple travel industry text. If it's a book of very nice photos of Portugal you're looking for you'll enjoy this, but for some solid information about Portugal look elsewhere.
