My place is close to great views. You’ll love my place because of the people, the location, the ambiance, and the outdoors space. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and furry friends (pets).

The space

Casita Do Pastor is a charming renovated stone cottage on a 7 acre "Quinta" on an elevated site with stunning views. Fully equipped kitchen for a self-catering stay. Set in woodland, surrounded by nature, this tranquil private retreat offers all modern comforts. Only 5 minutes walk to the beautiful village of Vale De Prazeres with all amenities: bars, cafes, groceries, pharmacy, atm, train station, etc.
The large town of Fundao is a 15 minute drive away, city of Castelo Branco is a 35 minute drive, Portugals highest mountain 'Serra da Estrela' is also 35 mins drive with skiing in winter. A23 motorway is a 10 minute drive from here. Many historic sites are nearby: Monsanto, Castelo Novo, Sabugal and many more. Beautiful outdoor swimming pools only 5 minutes drive. Lakes and rivers with river beaches close-by.

Guest access

Guests can wander freely throughout the "Quinta". Enjoy the varied landscape, flora and fauna. Olive groves, pine forest , cork oaks, mimosa and an amazing range of wildlife, especially birdlife: eagles, buzzards, woodpeckers, hoopoes and golden orioles to name just a few. Access to the property is via a public path (approx. 400 metres) which rises from the main road and is only used by a few local farmers. This public path is one of the famous Gardunha walks and there are many more in the area for anyone who enjoys trekking. The owners live in a separate house on the path to the Casita and are always on-site to welcome guests.

Interaction with guests

We are always accessible to welcome guests and are delighted to help with advice and assistance in any way. Guests have total privacy at the Casita but are never far from the owners should they need contact. We speak fluently in Portuguese, English and French and some basic Spanish.

Rogerio's place is a wonderful, quiet unit located in the thick of nature. A great place to really connect to the environment with nice view Unfortunately we only stayed the one night, but Rogerio noted there are plenty of sites and hikes nearby which we wished we could have stayed longer to experience. Rogerio is a courteous host and a pleasure to deal with. Definitely recommend. Thanks again.

Loved our stay in Vale de Prazeres. Rogerio is wonderful. We wish we had more time to spend with him. We hope he will come join us for a visit in Seattle. Visiting Monsanto. Was a highlight. My husband is looking at real estate for retirement already. Hope to return again.

Everyone who loves the nature and the forest has to stay at Rogerios sweet house. The little farm house was rebuilt with much love to details. We loved it and didn't miss anything :)
