This old farm located in the middle of the countryside, situated 1.8 km from the center of Ponte de Lima, is inserted in the REN (national ecological reserve) and RAN (national agricultural reserve), located in a corner of the parish of Correlhã, To the river Trovela, tributary of the river Lima.
The built complex consists of two houses, the first to be built, would have started before the century. XVII. At the time, the construction of the tillage seat was to create a housing area in the upper part and wine cellar to manufacture wine on the lower floor. At that time to ensure thermal stability in the cellar, they took advantage of the slope of the land, building so that the part facing the west and part of the facade facing south, were buried to protect them from the sun. While the fronts were discovered, the biggest turn to the north and the other to the east, in order to guarantee the freshness and the necessary aeration. Only with the well-established wine cellar was it possible to fill the lack of technology at the time and if they could make good products at the end of each harvest, conserving the wines until later. The grapes produced here would necessarily have the quality to make these wines, because this cellar was always active until the intervention that it suffered for the reconversion in Agrotourism.
The recovery was done with a very tight criterion, recovering everything that was possible, using the processes and materials of the time, with the help of some "Old Masters" craftsmen still alive. It was a long process, but it was with great satisfaction from the whole team that we reached the final result.
Inserted in the rural environment, as already mentioned and always thinking about the concept of "Tourism and Nature", we managed to preserve and transform with comfort and quality the heritage built a few centuries ago, when the demand and way of life were totally many different. Now also with a new area dedicated to physical activity, health and well-being.
In this tourism venture, the well-being integrated into Nature has always been considered as primordial, but never losing the sense of antiquity of the house where many generations passed and in turn, many stories with many joys and sorrows including those of the agricultural activities developed there .
