Company info

The Five house is owned by Filipe and Vera. The name Five house came because the number of the house is 5. But there are coincidences that do not happen by accident. Also because Five are the initials of Fi-lipe and Ve-ra, and also because they were at the time the Five House started, five: two dogs, Bilbo and Mel, a cat, Bianca, and Filipe and Vera. Unfortunately Mel left August last year, and new cat (Yoda) and another dog (Byron) join us. We are a couple which biology and photography brought us together! We live in the beautiful, mysterious, foggy town of Sintra, which is a constant source of inspiration. Filipe and Vera lived in Florence, Italy, for 4 years, which proved to be another big source of inspiration and ideas for their projects. During their stay, they travel a lot and try out many B&B. Since then, they had a dream of having their own B&B in Sintra. Last year we came across the perfect opportunity and we couldn’t let it slip through our fingers. And then the Five House born.
