Holiday Rental House
The Casa das Estórias owes its name to the rich oral traditions of the villages in this area of rural Portugal. On long winter nights, old stories were told by the fireplace, frequently with supernatural or fantastic elements. These stories were passed down from generation to generation and can still be read in regional anthologies today. The entrance door on the ground floor leads directly into a welcoming social space with a kitchen, a dining table, and a cozy living area, with a wood burner, an armchair, and a sofa bed. On the first floor, you can find a bedroom with a double bed, a bathroom and a common area with a comfortable sofa bed. This floor also leads to the large balcony, with a view of the village’s natural pool.

This floor also leads to the large balcony, with a view of the village’s natural pool. An ideal spot for family meals, to read a book, to relax to the sound of the brook or to count stars at night. In this house, the artistic work of ceramists Carmina Anastácio and Martim Santa Rita have many stories to tell. As all the other houses in Cerdeira Village, the Casa das Estórias has been restored using ecological and regional materials and favoring the use of local contractors. All houses have central heating and offer great comfort, both in winter and summer. To guarantee that you make the most out of the village’s quietness, we have chosen not to install TVs, radio or internet access in any of the houses. The Internet is only available in the cafe where we serve breakfast. You can make your stay even more special by booking one of our creative experiences or joining one of the workshops we host throughout the year.

About the neighbourhood
The village is perfect for nature lovers, photographers, artists, families, couples, and even groups seeking wellness and tranquility. The surroundings are a fantastic setting for picnics, hikes, meditation and long readings. Discover the untouched mountain, climb to the top and drink the fresh water from the stream. Today, Cerdeira has become an artistic centre with international Artistic Residencies, workshops, and creative experiences; a hideaway for truly invigorating holidays, benefitting from its unique natural setting, its quietness and all the infrastructure that has been built with our visitors in mind: the Casa das Artes, the studios, the library, the gallery, the community oven and the cafe.
