At the foot of the spectacular natural park Serra da Estrela, on the
edge of a small village near Gouveia, is the luxurious house
Casa dos Cisnes (House of the Swans).

The house can accommodate up to 4 persons, pets are allowed on request. Access to the house is via a stone staircase outside, so the house is not suitable for the disabled. At the top of the stone staircase is a plateau, where you can sit outside and enjoy the view and the song of many birds. In the morning the sun shines on this plateau, great to wake up like this!

Because the bedroom is located above this plateau, it remains nice and cool in the living room, the sun does not shine in directly.

Layout of the house:

The house has been kept “rustic” on purpose, but with all modern conveniences. When you enter through the double front door you are standing in front of the stairs.
On the left you can enter the living room, with on the right the open kitchen in granite and pine. The kitchen is fully equipped, such as a gas hob and extractor, a large hot air oven, a large double door refrigerator, a double sink and a dishwasher and a spacious storage space under the stairs.

View from living room to the entrance

In the living room next to the kitchen there is a dining area with 4 chairs and a serving hatch from the kitchen, a 2-seater (sleeping) bench and 2 comfortable armchairs. Furthermore, of course, a coffee table and a sideboard for plates, glasses and dishes with a flat screen TV on top of this cabinet, with a fixed connection to the network with 150 channels and good, very fast WiFi.

On the second floor are the separate toilet with the washing machine and a fountain and the geyser that is only necessary in the colder periods, because on the well-insulated roof there is a solar panel with solar water heater that provides hot water all day, from about May to October.


Next to the toilet is a very spacious bathroom, actually the showpiece of the house, with a bath, a double sink and yes, a double shower, so you can take a nice shower together (also useful for parents with children).

Next to the bathroom is a small bedroom with a single bed and next to it is the master bedroom with a double bed with a lovely new mattress + soft top, bedside tables and a wardrobe.
