The Casas da Encosta project consists of three schist houses that are under restoration in Cunqueiros, a village in the Proença-a-Nova district. Here you can relive the life, history and culture of the local people, in the comfort of a typical village in the Beira region. The property's owners, Nuno e Rita, tell us that the houses are being restored with respect to local building traditions where schist, clay and wood are the predominant features.

One of them, Casa da Lagariça, opened its doors in 2014 with a capacity of up to six people, and where a lagariça (a small wine press), one of the region's unique implements, is on display in the lounge. Those passing through can appreciate the region through walking tours, discover the river beaches and viewpoints, explore the Schist Villages and, of course, savour the rich and varied gastronomy with typical dishes such as Cabrito Estonado (regional way of preparing roast kid), Maranho (stuffed sheep or goat stomach and herbs) and Bucho (stuffed stomach).

Nuno Caldeira
Nuno Caldeira
Born and bred in the area, Lisbon-based Nuno Caldeira, who has a great passion for his roots and the heritage of Cunqueiros, was excited by the existence of a local patrimony, a large cluster of schist houses. This dream of restoring some of this patrimony and bring life back to the village started to become reality from 2012, with the restoration of one of the three houses in the Casas de Encosta project.

"Adoramos a nossa estadia. A casa recuperada com muito bom gosto, conforto e tudo o que é necessário para nos sentirmos em casa. Apesar de não termos conhecido o Nuno, foi sempre um anfitrião atento. Os passeios e a simpatia das pessoas, fez nos sentir parte da terra e da aldeia. Um lugar ideal para descansar e descobrir lindas praias fluviais. Obrigada Nuno por ter partilhado a sua casa connosco e pelos mimos de boas vindas." June 24, 2022
"Uma casa de bonecas. Casa acolhedora com aquecimento em todas as divisões, para os dias mais frios. Cozinha equipada com tudo o que é necessário. É entregue um kit de boas vindas com doces e licores artesanais e pão, muito bons. O silêncio que reina na aldeia é o ideal para repor as energias." November 02, 2020
