Among the green hills and valleys of the agricultural region northwest of Lisboa, known as 'Saloia', Aldeia da Mata Pequena is a small rural village with a dozen houses, where people still lives peacefully in close contact with nature, breathing clean air and living with authenticity. Small, simple, rustic and very cozy, the houses were rigorously restored from which there was almost nothing left but ruins, as result of an intense research work and, above all, of the passion and tenacious persistency of Ana Partidário and Diogo Batalha. It is a village full of tenderness and enchantment where the memories of a past which is familiar to us all, brings back an enthusiastic feeling about pieces of furniture and fixtures that were once part of our childhood and that enliven today's memories with enthusiasm.
