It is said and written, that the idea is to be found in the site and it's true. It's not just the idea, but also the name that comes from the site. Adpropeixe, which almost seems to be a name out of an Astérix book, is a part of the Gerês Natural Reserve, located in Vilar de Veiga, in the Terras do Bouro district. It's just there, by the water, after passing the bridges and just before arriving at Gerês; the spa village. It's easier to access by boat than by road or cross-country. It is a unique place so the response to the commission also had to be unique and specific: a timber house. The client, in love with Gerês, the reservoir and the water, had been looking for a site to buy to hopefully build a house. After a long search, the chance arose to buy a site, where a tennis court had been built prior to the establishment of the Natural Reserve. This construction was legally and properly authorized at the time.
