“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″

OCTOBER

Schilderweek Monte do Casarao

October. Fixed item in October, just before the autumn break, is always the painting week. This time there is something to celebrate: already for the 20th time, Monte do Casarão is a week-long an outdoor painting place, where the students have to work hard, but where they can also relax, enjoy the sun and be served.

The key to the painting week is teacher Jenny Helder. Every painting week (now for the 20th time) she comes specially from the Netherlands to Monte do Casarão to teach, with as much enthusiasm and animation as when she came the first time. The students continue to come back. For now we will go on with this topper.

For the record: the course of April 2019 is as good as full.
