There is an innate orchestra that pulsates, echoing remote stories about us beyond what we perceive immediately, wrapped in the hustle and bustle of the "doings" of each day. It was from this desire of listening and connecting with these melodies and rhythms of nature that the seed for this project was sown. The Casa do Páteo is a tribute to nature, to the flow of existence, and to the heart beat of mother earth. Our house welcomes generously, as individuals and as a collective.
Our country house, with 10.000m2, is surrounded by pine forest and a garden that sings a hymn to the art of mother nature. A project for everyone, created with great pleasure and commitment in the alchemical marriage of the elements and listening to the random song of the cicadas, the busy and indifferent journeys of the ants, the carefree flight of the birds, the confident pace of Ashkandi (our canine companion) and the wandering of our cats around the fascinating trails, that always send us back home at any time and place.
Casa do Páteo offers free Wi-Fi and a sunbathing patio with an outdoor pool where you can enjoy the silence, a good book, the company of friends and family, the shade of the fruit trees and the fresh fruits of the season, which also whisper stories with their flavour: the apples of Eve, the grapes of Dionysus and the diospiros which may well be the metaphor for "divine food."
With a request in advance, Casa do Páteo can prepare a picnic basket with the best homemade and regional delicacies for you.
Breakfast does not include products of animal origin, except for some household products, pastries, cheeses, goat's milk or eggs, produced locally in a way that respects the environment and the welfare of the animals. We will be happy to arrange breakfast alternatives, if you request in advance.
In this space we value the concept of sustainable tourism and seek to encourage environmental awareness. We reduced the consumption of energy resources, we use solar panels for heating the house and water, the decoration is based on the reuse of materials, and our shade system and natural ventilation avoids the use of air conditioning. We separate and recycle our garbage, and we encourage our guests to adopt the same attitude.
We try not to consume more than necessary, and all the hygiene products are supplied in manual dispensers, ecological and not tested on animals. Soon we will start working with products produced in our place.
