About the Homestay
If you enjoy walking, hiking, cycling and nature then my home offers a fabulous base. On the edge of a small village not far from Seia with a beautiful veiw of the Serra de Estrella mountains. There are walking trails and cycle routes from my home into the countryside. The mountains and rivers with lakes and river beaches are also easy to reach by car. If you are without transport I can arrange trips to fabulous natural places to enjoy all year around.
Throughout the year there are many events happening which usually involve a festa / fiesta /party in nearby villages and towns. Also there are many organised workshops and wellness activities you can join. Every weekend you can find a eco market with local produce and handmade items.
Some visitors enjoy having a pizza party so we fire up the outdoor pizza oven and invite guests to share in making and eating pizzas.
Finally, I love keeping a garden partly for pleasure, sitting out and enjoying the view or eating a meal in the shade nearby or on the terrace. I also use the space for growing organic vegetables, fruit, nuts, olives and enjoy eating and sharing my harvest as each comes into season. So if you are also a gardening enthusiast, come and see how I grow and share your own ideas.

There are walks into the countryside locally and many mountain trails in the Serra de Estrella plus beautiful river beaches to enjoy. A car is useful to get to many places but on arrangement I can offer rides at a reasonable cost. Lots of pretty mountain villages to explore too.
