“Bit of luck”

“How did you ever manage to find this?” all our guests ask when they first come to us for their holidays, impressed by nature, the quiet and the breath-taking views. “Well”, we tend to answer, “you need to look for it, don’t you, and you need a bit of luck”.
Eight years ago, we fell head over heels in love with Monte do Casarão. The monte “of the big House” lies smack in the middle of an impressive scenic area, far from the madding crowd and the traffic. By now, there are six houses, (unpaved) roads, there’s a swimming pool and there’s electricity, water, telephone and Internet. What makes Monte do Casarão really special is that all the houses have been built on mountains of their own, scattered across the monte. As a result, you’ll soon experience an optimal sense of freedom and peace.
In one of these houses, Casarão Velho, we have permanently reserved for ourselves. It also features as a group space. Casa Basta, Casa Marcanta, Casa Boa and Casa Valorosa have been designed for the holiday goer. Casarão Novo is available in special cases.
Below, you’ll find all the houses together at a glance. You can also find us on Google maps. For your satnav or GPS, you can enter the following coordinates: W 8° 36′ 25″; N 37° 28′ 15″

NOVEMBER

November. It is medronho time. Picking lasts for three months, October, November and December. Every few days, medronho pickers come by to take the ripe fruits from the tree. If you want tasty medronho, the key is to pick only the correctly coloured and intact berries. You can make jam from the berries, but the vast majority are put in barrels to ferment so that later, in March, medronho can be distilled from them. The local liquor. A very heavy drink, but tasty. And it kills all the bad bacteria right away. Also never goes amiss.
