About the property

It is located in a natural park, known for its river beach of Duke Ferdinand, very pleasant place, with a fairly extensive body of water and a vegetable rich and diverse environment. The beach environment is characterized by a vast forest mantle, which makes the pleasant walks, bike or all terrain bike.

The House is part of a collection of buildings typical of the region, associated with flour mills powered by the force of the river. Even today you can see these buildings and also near the mill and the wheels of mills.

Great holidays!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 6 days in beautiful village of Casegas and we had fantastic time. The house is really lovely and comfortable. Thanks to the owners we felt like at home! They were very helpful and even organized a trip for us so we could explore area around Casegas. Our kids loved the river which is just near the house and they spend half of time playing in the water. We can definitely recommend it and we would love to return some other time! Many thanks for great holidays!

A beautiful place to visit, amazing hospitality

  • 5 of 5

Myself and my girlfriend enjoyed a week in this house set in beautiful Covilha. We were here in January - which meant it could be a little cold at times - but the heating system worked well, though the hot water supply could be problematic. The house was beautiful, a tradtional stone house which has been nicely modernised and was generally very comfortable. It was absolutely spotless on arrival.

What was most notable about our stay was the wonderful hospitality provided by the Marcelino family. They were incredibly friendly and helpful whenever we dealt with them and even gave us some home-grown fruit and vegetables which was a lovely touch.

The local village was also very beautiful and everyone there was extremely friendly to us, though we didn't speak Portuguese (and very few of them spoke any English) The general area is stunning, with loads of pretty villages throughout the mountain roads (which are absolutely terrifying to drive on!) Many thanks for having us, we had a great time.

Casa típica muito cosy

  • 5 of 5

Casa típica muito cosy, com a natureza envolvente muito bonita. A casa estava limpa e aguardava-nos o calorzinho da salamandra aquando da nossa chegada à noite. Sitio muito perto dos acessos à Serra da Estrela (Torre). De salientar a simpatia da D. Teresa, que nos recebeu com um miminho caracteristico da zona. Será com certeza uma casa onde iremos voltar.

Owner's Response: Obrigado nós Srª. Susana, pela sua presença na nossa humilde casa em Casegas. É muito gratificante quando recebemos um comentário como o seu que gostou do espaço e que de uma maneira ou de outra se envolveu pela beldade do local. Neste momento esta habitação está em fase de teste, visto que temos um projeto em mãos para o podermos ampliar com novas habitações e com espaços de lazer. Por isso os vossos comentários serem importantíssimos para que esse projeto possa ter pernas para andar. Um muito Obrigado e esperamos vê-los em breve. Att, Renato Marcelino
