Some of my best memories from my childhood are of the time I spent enjoying nature and familiy in my grandmother’s big country-house.

I was amazed to find out how much me and my friends, Cata and Flor share in common about the countryside. Even though each country-house might be different in terms of appearence from the other, we are all familiar with the feeling of belonging and comfort that the countryside offers to us, and have very similar experiences and memories of being in this special place.
