A unique getaway for
music lovers near Lisbon

Unwind • Connect • Create

"The Groove House is such an inspiring, relaxed place. We were looking for somewhere chilled, in beautiful country surroundings, to reconnect and focus on new songs without the distractions of city life. Gennaro provided us with that, and a lot more: excellent demo recording facilities, full drum kit, guitars and other assorted instruments, great mics, and the space to spread out and experiment. Nice residential facilities. Thirty minutes drive to the beach, the airport, and the city of Lisbon. I’d recommend it to anyone – we’ll be back!"
