"Casa Grande" is a XVI century house overlapped by a XVIII century manor-house, always belonging to our family. It is surrounded by our Country Houses, a camellia garden, an old olive-yard and our traditional forge. You can find us in the little village of Paços da Serra, between Seia and Gouveia (8km from both) in the Portuguese mountains of Serra da Estrela.
We have three rustic apartments in Casa Grande (TH) for two people each (with one or two beds), all of them with fireplace, kitchenette and bathroom.
There are also six Country Houses (CC) with one, two, three or four rooms. All of these also have a fireplace, kitchenette and bathroom. All accommodations overlook the garden and have tv. Parking is within our property. This has 3 hectares of olive trees
Each apartment or country house for guests has a little kitchenette with a refrigerator and a small stove top where you can cook your lunch or dinner. In my personal kitchen I will prepare your breakfast. I also have some personal appliances that you can use, such as: blender, juicer, food processor and assorted cookware.
Gests can have access to the the olive yard and the garden, can visit our forge museum, the Roman milestone, relaxing under the trees or the big shed . In the lounge gests can have wifi, coffee, try our home made liquors and have a look on the aerial photos and the traditional loom.

About Your Host
I was born in Lisbon 62 ago. I began as a macrobiotic vegetarian ( quite vegan ) when I was 19 in order to respect the animal rights of living. I've lived in Paços da Serra village in the north center of Portugal for the past 17 years . My mother restored this place known as Casa Grande for guests 30 ears ago. I like to walk in the mountains, listen to music and people, reading, do some gardening, handcraft, weaving etc. I am Buddhism friendly. I have 2 children and a granddaughter in Lisbon.
