Casa das Vizinhas
Located right in the centre of the village, the Casa das Vizinhas testifies to the importance of the neighbourly relations and the community spirit that were once the ground stones of these remote mountain villages.
With an adapted bathroom and no obstacles on the ground floor, which also includes a kitchen, a dining table, and a living area with a sofa bed, an armchair and a traditional wood burner, this house has been planned to satisfy the needs of all those with reduced mobility.
On the second floor there is a bedroom with two twin beds, a common area with a sofa bed, a second bathroom and a desk, ideal for inspired writers. This floor also gives access to a balcony with a stunning view over the village, the brook and the natural pool at the entrance of the village.
The «vizinhas» in this house, sculpted by artist Kerstin Thomas, are great company!
As all the other houses in Cerdeira Village, the Casa das Estórias 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. 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.

The pieces created for this house by Kerstin Thomas, the resident artist and co-founder of Cerdeira Village, bear testimony to her unique connection to the village, it’s past, rehabilitation and future. Her interpretations of the old neighbours, great women rendered in small wood sculptures, can be found throughout the house, as a tribute to the original founders of the village. In this evocation of the past, the «neighbours» are accompanied by pieces that have been produced with old tools or ceramic vestiges found during the renovation works and by other, more abstract pieces that complete the bridge between past and present. But beware, the «neighbours» in this house and all very friendly and won’t tell anyone and know how to keep a secret!
