Casa da Árvore
With a large balcony and a stunning view over the Cerdeira Brook’s valley, the Casa da Árvore is ideal for those who want to let nature’s colours dictate their inspiration.
The entrance door on the ground floor leads directly into a social area with a kitchen, a dining table and a welcoming living area, with a wood burner, an armchair and a sofa bed.
Through the stairs you reach the second floor, with a double bed, a bathroom and another balcony, from which you can see the village’s natural pool.
With the artistic creations of António Fernandes and Vanda Vilela, nature is present in this house in a unique way.
As all the other houses in Cerdeira Village, the Casa da Árvore has been restored using ecological and regional materials and favouring the use of local contractors. All houses have central heating and offer great comfort, both in winter and summer. In the kitchen, you will find basic staples such as salt, sugar, spices, olive oil and vinegar. To guarantee that you make the most out of the village’s quietness, we have chosen not to install TVs, radio or internet access in any of the houses.
You can make your stay even more special by booking one of our creative experiences or joining one of the workshops we host throughout the year.

António Fernandes, sculptor inspired by nature, lives and works in the Nogueira Mountains in Bragança, in the North region of Portugal. Antonio perfected develop his unique way of sculpting wood, letting its natural patterns guide him over years. His deep knowledge of the wood’s properties allied to his great sensibility result in unique pieces, from furniture to musical instruments and sculptures. The staircase, bookcase and coat hanger in this house are all stunning examples of his unique talent.
Similarly, Vanda Vilela, a painter who lives and works between Lisbon and Lousã, is also moved by her great passion for nature and for one of its materials – paper in her case. With her capacity for finding the essence of natural shapes, she composes her pieces with architectural precision by employing a scalpel and coloured paper. The theme of her creation in this house is the Redstart , a bird who is a frequent visitor of Cerdeira.
