welcome, whoever comes for good

I rebuilt this house picturing the best for your accommodation. It is simple, cozy, comfortable, unpretentious and imperfect.

The Casa Velha (Old House) was the home of my maternal ancestors. It’s the place where my grandmother was born, my uncles and my mother. From what was once a small hut, there are some stones and many memories of Grandma Maria de Jesus.

​​Grandmother Maria was a woman of small stature, very thin, hardworking, caring and intolerant of vanity, laziness, avarice and gluttony. The need gave her cunning, sagacity, audacity and courage. Supportive and generous but, rough in the treat and sharing emotions. She didn't know "a letter of a train size," as she so often said, however, it was one of the wisest women I've ever had as a teacher.

Casa Velha is located in Lugar da Vila, in the center of the Parish of Cabril, in the middle of the Gerês mountain range.

It is surrounded by mountains and beautiful and unique landscapes, waterfalls, rivers and lakes.

From here you can enjoy rural life and, above all, contribute to an ecotourism and sustainable development project.
