    My stay at Casa Estêvão was superb! I was looking for a calm and quiet place to spend a week writing my master's dissertation and I couldn't have found a better one. Casa Estêvão was, in this sense, my private oasis of peace and tranquillity. One could hear only the singing of the birds and the noise of nature in the mountains. The house has everything you need, including a good quality internet connection and a desk with an ergonomic chair in the attic suite. For moments of relaxation and rest, the swimming pool, with its water at a pleasant temperature and its breathtaking views, was perfect. But the best of all were the hosts. Fernanda and Mr. Manuel are marvelous people who really make you feel at home. They even offered me vegetables from their own property. And they were always concerned about my well-being, always eager to answer any request or question I had. I can not help but strongly recommend a stay there! Give yourself that unique opportunity! ——- Mein Aufenthalt im Casa Estêvão war ausgezeichnet! Ich war auf der Suche nach einem ruhigen und friedlichen Ort, um eine Woche lang an meiner Masterarbeit zu schreiben, und ich hätte keinen besseren finden können. Casa Estêvão war in diesem Sinne meine private Oase des Friedens und der Ruhe. Alles, was man hören konnte, war der Gesang der Vögel und das Rauschen der Natur in den Bergen. Das Haus verfügt über alles, was Sie brauchen, einschließlich einer hochwertigen Internetverbindung und einem Schreibtisch mit ergonomischem Stuhl in der Dachgeschoss-Suite. Für Momente der Entspannung und Erholung war der Swimmingpool mit seiner angenehmen Wassertemperatur und der atemberaubenden Aussicht perfekt. Aber das Beste von allem waren die Gastgeber. Fernanda und Herr Manuel sind wunderbare Menschen, bei denen man sich wie zu Hause fühlt. Sie haben mir sogar Gemüse von ihrem eigenen Grundstück angeboten. Und sie waren immer um mein Wohlergehen besorgt und hatten immer ein offenes Ohr für meine Wünsche und Fragen. Ich kann einen Aufenthalt dort nur empfehlen! Gönnen Sie sich diese einmalige Gelegenheit!

    We were very impressed with our 3-month stay at Casa Estêvão. The accommodation is comfortable, and the facilities are extremely good. We really enjoyed the peaceful surroundings and were treated by the hosts - Fernanda and Manuel, like one of the family. We were buying fresh eggs, oranges, honey and on occasion were treated with free vegetables from the farm. All in all, we cannot fault this eco stay and we would definitely like to come back! Just to add that while staying in Portugal, we were working the same time and when the weather was stormy, we experienced some minor issues with the internet connection.

    We stayed for 8 nights and it's not enough! It's a home away from home here. Fernanda and Sergio responded to our requests very fast and they are always so helpful. They will ensure that we are comfortable throughout our stay. Fernanda even made an extra effort to bring us around the mountain to introduce us the places. We went for sunset at the top of the mountain and it was so stunning! We hosted them for a Singapore style Chinese dinner and Fernanda surprised us with her homecooked dinner one of the nights. We feel like a family together. Strongly recommend this place to everyone and we will want to be back again.

    A casa é incrível! Está num sítio maravilhoso, numa paz muito muito boa! Só se ouvem os passarinhos, é lindo! Localiza se ao pé da Serra de São Macário que é por si só incrível, com paisagens lindas! Os anfitriões são de uma simpatia maravilhosa e muito queridos! Sem dúvida vou querer voltar um dia, obrigada aos três 🙏🏻☺️

    I spent a weekend here with my daughter and we both enjoyed the peaceful environment in the village and the company of our hosts (and the sheep and goat and chicken...). We went exploring the region which offers beautiful scenery and idyllic villages, but also enjoyed just spending time in the village, eating oranges and kiwis from the tree, watching and listening to the sound of the sheep and goats and talking to our hosts. It was truly an unforgettable experience, and especially so because of our hosts, who made us feel very welcome. I have written several posts about our experience on my blog. I write in Swedish, but you can understand most of it if you use google translate, I think. Of course, you can also enjoy the photos, which need no translation. Have a look here,  here and here . I recommend a visit or even a longer stay in this peaceful and friendly place. We will definitely visit again!

    Adoramos a nossa estadia na Casa Estêvão! A localização é maravilhosa, numa pequena aldeia em que se ouve o silêncio e se consegue esquecer todo o stress. A casa tem tudo o que precisamos, mas o melhor é mesmo a hospitalidade da D. Fernanda e do Sr. Manuel. Fizeram-nos sentir em casa e responderam a todos os nossos pedidos com prontidão. E ainda conseguimos convencer a D. Fernanda a fazer-nos um delicioso arroz de coelho! Sentimo-nos muito acarinhados e esperamos voltar na Primavera, para continuar a explorar a maravilhosa zona envolvente e conversar com a D. Fernanda para aprendermos mais sobre a vida local.
