You can still find evidence of ancient traditions here, such as a number of wood-burning ovens scattered around the village and also of traditions calling on the power of the water. At the Aldeias do Xisto Shop you will find a selection of the best products in the region.
Casa da Laje is next to a small stream that flows into the Ribeira da Galega. It crosses the village of Água Formosa. The outside retains its original design. Inside, the decor is contemporary and very comfortable. In addition to the huge clay and schist walls, the house has doors and windows with great thermal and acoustic insulation.
The house is divided into two floors. Downstairs, there’s a living room with kitchen, and a large glazed door leading to a small patio where you can see the stream and the vegetable gardens. There’s also a bathroom at this level. The floor is made of schist tiles (replica) with radiant heating. Upstairs, which is accessed either via an internal staircase or directly from the street, there are two bedrooms and a bathroom. One of the bedrooms has a double bed and two windows; the other has a double bed and a single window with a beautiful view.
