Floating
Houses

passion / exclusiveness / sustainability

A floating home on the Alqueva Lake. Can you imagine a getaway for two on a mobile house in the middle of a lake or in a pleasant river cove for the entire family or a group of friends, but with the comfort and convenience of a fully-furnished home?

Amieira Marina helps confirm the FloatWing®* concept by providing you with the ideal setting and unique moments at the Great Lake.

The concept of this Floating House appeals to environmental sustainability while offering the comfort of a home.

low power consumption

use of efficient devices

self-sufficient production

through thermal and photovoltaic solar panels

use of forest waste

so as to avoid the use of fossil fuels as much as possible

air conditioning using a high COP heat pump

using the thermal capacity of the surrounding environment

indoor heating using pellets

to avoid excess power consumption in the months of lower production

LED technology

alvo

To reach in all layouts possible a coverage rate (rate between self-sufficient solar production and consumption)

=

100%

between the beginning of April and the end of September

The annual coverage rate on the Alqueva Lake is estimated to reach about 80 %.

Environmental sustainability is one of the key values for those who want nature at their doorstep and, as such, is a core requirement of the FloatWing concept.

The Floating House is available for sale, but you can enjoy it on a rental basis.
