This family project was born from a quest for a reunion with Nature. The restoration and recovery of the spaces went hand in hand with the discovery of the old Quinta (Estate or large farmhouse) of "Professor Camilo", the first owner, which was left abandoned for years. This experience of another life in the country, was the beginning of the Vila dos Castanheiros, that now shares its comfort and beauty with its guests.
The prosperity of details embellishes the original values of the Vila and are the result of a true experience that started with the House’s restoration.
Other treasures of our Vila are: the organic garden and our animals: chickens, ducks, guineafowl and sheep, until now...; our healthy and delicious cuisine, following the seasons. Each season with its fruit: persimmons and chestnuts in autumn, oranges and tangerines in the winter, cherries in spring and plums, figs and pears in summer.
Casa do forno and the theatre
For dining we have available the 'Casa do Forno': a large, homey and fully-equipped kitchen with traditional oven for community use. We have also an outside barbecue, where you can grill your own food, enjoying the shade of the big chestnut tree.
For entertainment we have traditional games and boardgames, as well as a multipurpose space that we like to call 'The Theatre', where you can take refreshments listening to music or sing karaoke.
For those who like trekking there are several walking trails.
Outdoor poll and Breakfast Room
To relax and refresh your energies we have a spa with Turkish bath, sauna, jacuzzi and massage bed. In the garden there is a pool.
We service breakfast with homemade products, jams, seasonal fruit, eggs, fresh juices ... and other meals by arrangement.
