Casa das Estórias pays homage to the rich oral traditions preserved in villages of the Beiras region. During the long winter nights, people told stories from ancient times around the fire, often with fantastic and supernatural details that were passed from generation to generation and that local reading collections still reveal today. The artistic ceramic work of Carmina Anastácio and Martim Santa Rita on display at this house have their own stories to tell.
This house has been renovated in a sustainable way and ensures all the comfort of a modern home. Because of its nature as a place for rest and conviviality, we decided not to install either TV or Internet in the houses. Find out about the programme of workshops and training sessions at the School of Arts & Crafts.
“We first started visiting our friends, Kerstin and family, in Cerdreira 20 years ago. We fell in love with the place and decided to do something to help preserve and restore it. With the help of three generations of the family, we set to work. We restored the first house – the shrines. We loved it. Since then, we haven’t been able to stop. Social responsibility and ecological sustainability are basic concepts for us, applied not only during the reconstruction stage, with local labour techniques and use of ecological materials, but also in our day-to-day operation!” Natalia and José.
