It is a privileged place for quietness surrounded on all sides by nature and countryside. There are several km of forest paths, pine woods and cypresses forest.
The farm cultivates apple trees, produces potatoes and raises cattle. The orchard bursts into life in the spring and on the last two weeks of September is ready for picking and everybody may join in.

Built from granite and schist and located in the heart of the country, they have witnessed over 900 years of Portuguese history.
