Casa da Porta de CochÍca - Gatehouse Cottage

This rural house, which provides independent quarters, has recently been renovated and modernised, and brought up to current expectations of comfort. It is at the gate of the main house, thus its name, and used to be inhabited by the resident tenant farmer. On the first floor is the old labourerís kitchen, which has been totally remodelled and equipped. There is an area for meals, a sitting room, and two bedrooms (one double and one twin), with an adjacent bathroom. On the ground floor, there is another sitting room, with direct access outside, and two further bedrooms (one double and one twin), each with an en-suite bathroom. Outside, by the kitchen, there is a large, sunny lawn, for the exclusive use of the Casa da Porta guests, containing a small vegetable garden, whose products may be used by the guests, and an aromatic herb garden. Casa da Porta has views over the whole of the valley. Extra beds and childrenís cots may be requested. It is equipped for 10 people.         Photos     Facilities
