The Rua dos Ilheus resumes a small village inside Picanceira, built in the XVIII century by one of the large farms landlord to lodge their workers. It was then the first rural workers social neighborhood built in Portugal and due to its rare architecture integrates most of the obligatory Portuguese architecture manuals. As most of the farm workers were original from Azores (reason why the street name is ILHEUS, meaning Islanders) the farms owner built in the houses reminding the trace of the islanders original houses in Azores: all of the houses of its complex have a large garden and an external bread oven and are all painted in white. This house was built later with the new series of “saloias” houses built along the XIX century. So Rua dos Ilheus mainly resumes this small village in Picanceira, surrounded by rural landscapes and farm areas. Though the national road N9 runs in front dividing Picanceira from the major farms in front, the village and the house are still quite quiet and secluded.

Due to its proximity to the Ericeira beaches it is perfect to rest but at the same time a short drive from a dive in the ocean or a stroll in Ericeira by night.
