Our home, originally built in the 1700's was renovated in 2000. The house is rustic, clean and comfortable. The house is situated in a medieval village near Chaves. You will drive past all progress and into a time capsule from 100 years ago. The locals are farmers. You will hear the tractors and horses and donkeys pass early in the morning. The very best parts of this experience are the winding streets, the local color of the village, the ancient walls, the quiet of the country side, a beautiful step away from all of the stresses in life. The house is a modest, comfortable home built of thick stone walls that will keep you cool in the summer. The queen sized beds are new and comfortable. We have a small kitchen which includes a stove top, full size refrigerator, pots and pans for cook...Our home, originally built in the 1700's was renovated in 2000.

Interaction with guests
Our family owns and runs a rural tourism farm 2kms away from our house called Quinta da Mata. You will pick up the key from our farm and will follow us to Casa da Eira. We will help you get situated into the house and will point out several interesting amenities in our village of Sao Lourenco. You will always be welcomed to visit our farm where we have horses, sheep and chickens, and when we do not have events, you will be invited to use the pool.

Great experience in this authentic Portuguese village. This property is located in a quaint village with winding cobblestone streets and church bells ringing. I couldn’t have asked for a better first time visit to Portugal. The house is well stocked, comfortable, and charming. I felt...More

This isn’t a hotel. It isn’t a typical tourist experience. It’s a glimpse of the real Portugal. It’s waking to church bells, watching the swallows swarm overhead at noon, and ending the day with villagers bringing in their animals through the cobble stone street. It’s...More

The modest little home is truly a step back in time. The house is set within a charming, medieval working village. As an American, it felt as if I was in a movie or at Disney World. The home is comfortable but not luxurious. You...More

About the neighbourhood
Mountainous area in which communities still grow a lot of their food and also enjoy connectivity and modern amenities thanks to vibrant small towns and very modern highways systems. Rooted communities, traditional cultures, rural landscapes, historic heritage, and modern amenities.
Getting around
Our house is a short, scenic 5km drive from Chaves. There is a very nice overlook to the Chaves valley just at the entrance to our village from which you can see the Tamega River valley with Chaves in front, and the border with Spain to to the Northeast. Sao Lourenco is a quaint village satelite to the small town of Chaves. From our house guests have easy access to Chaves, but also are connected with regional highways to do self drives to wine and olive regions in Valpacos, Braganca, the Douro region, etc. The house is also an easy drive to the border with Spain, and it is also 15 mins from the major tool road, A24, that connects guests with Porto (1.5hrs), Lisbon (4.5hrs), and Madrid (4hrs).
