In 1947, this wine-quinta was saved from destruction, when the reservoir of Ermal was formed. It was rebuilt stone by stone to its current location at 450 meters altitude. It is surrounded by 10 acres of land with mixed forest, orchards, vineyards and an ornamental garden with both sunny and shady seating areas. The whole area is invisible from outside, so it is suitable for nudism. It is only a 5 minutes walk to the borders of the reservoir of Ermal.

The current owners have improved the comfort, but the original features have been preserved as well as some rural antique furniture.

The main house sleeps 5 people, this can be extended up to 7 persons.

1st floor:

Living room with fireplace, dining room, kitchen. 2 double bedrooms each with own shower and toilet, 1 single bedroom, in the hall a large bathroom.

On the east a huge porch with two large dining tables and benches. Wake up with breakfast in the morning sun, as the rest of the day in the shade, enjoying the magnificent views. Even the higher peaks of the Serra do Gerês can be seen from here, as well as the whole ridge of the Serra da Cabreira.

On the west side along the length of the house a conservatory overlooking the garden. Here is a large collection of books and DVDs.

In the garden amongst others a table tennis and a large swimming pool, but without a shallow area for children! There are several waters on the rest of the territory, so beware that your kids will not fall into it.

Near the house is the Casinha: a granite cottage with a twin bedroom and a toilet with sink. If you rent in addition to the main building the Casinha, on the ground floor of the main house a bathroom with shower will be at your disposal, that is accessible from outside. In the Casinha is no heating (the big house has central heating)

Part of the grass is grazed by a friendly horse, that is being looked after by the neighbors.

When you need only 3 bedrooms (sleep 1-5 persons) you can book the main building and no one will use the Casinha at the same time. When you need 4 rooms (sleep 7 persons) you can rent them together.
