He held on to those genius musical scores. Shortly after marrying Monica, he left behind OPorto, the city of his childhood, youth and fine arts at Soares dos Reis Art School. They moved to Trás-os-Montes, swinging with the wind. The next destination would be Australia. Soon after, a wedding in Algarve changed their route. They felt nature appeal and decided to stay.

The ecological reserve in the middle of a natural park, flanked by the mountains, was a breeding ground for essential values. Happiness peeked through the leaves, perching on the treehouse that watched them grow.
With four bedrooms and a kitchen, they started to write this story. Then, they filled all the divisions with love and care, adorned them with Alfredo's paintings, invited guests to their table, and served meals to the sound of classical music.
