The space

Set in our 8 hectare organic quinta, Casa Serena is unusual in that it is completely off grid, with no compromise in terms of comfort- making it a perfect choice for those who wish to minimise their carbon footprint whilst they travel and relax. Our log burning stove heats the entire property on chilly evenings Casa Serena is available throughout the year!

We are offering space and comfort for those seeking true peace and escape from the rigours and stress of the modern world.
With a flick of the switch you connect with natures power, harnessing the power of the sun and water to provide natural energy.
Each visitor experience is 100% personal, but a stay at Casa Serena will demonstrate to all that being green does not mean you forgo the luxuries of life!

The entire quinta is powered with solar energy and plans are in place to increase our current energy supply with hydroelectric energy. We farm with absolute respect for the natural environment.

Enjoy fresh fruit and nuts from a vast selection of mature trees on the quinta, including: orange, lemon, clementine, plum, cherry, apple, pear, walnut and hazelnut. In September when we harvest the grapes from the 2000 vines in our vineyard, we produce our own wine and the most incredible organic grape juice!

Enjoy fresh seasonal produce from the organic gardens and fresh eggs for breakfast, (we can also provide bread from our local bakery, fresh bacon, sausages and smoked produce on request).

Enjoy full exclusive access to our private river beach on the stunning River Dao, the perfect spot for swimming and relaxing! Convenient access to the Ecopista do Dao, a 49 k cycling and pedestrian track that runs from Santa Comba Dao to Viseu. A gate leads from our quinta, directly onto the track, (bike rental nearby).

Our stunning plunge pool is completely natural and constantly replenished with fresh water from our own ancient water mine.

The neighborhood

Casa do Sobreiro is off the beaten track in a stunning rural location, with excellent access to the towns of Tondela, Santa Comba Dao and Carregal do Sal - (All within a 15 minute drive of the property).
