Secluded in Nature

Encosta do Sobreiro translates from Portuguese as “hillside of the cork oak,” and this property on a 2.5 hectare mountain village of Vila Soeiro do Chão, with its bounty of the rotund evergreen, is true to its name.

Yet, there is so much more to it. Designed by on-the-verge architects Bernardo Castro and Filipe Gonçalves, the 2020-completed reconstruction of an old country house brings you into the fresh air with comfort and modernity. 

Lounge in the saltwater pool, take a hike in the mountains or stroll the village. This is a place to clear your mind so that what emerges – birdsong, breeze or creative impulse – may find its rightful space.

THE SCULPTURE OF RUINS

The rural Guarda and Beira regions of central Portugal are located under the Serra da Estrela in a remote section between the Douro and the Tejo rivers that stretches from the Atlantic Coast all the way to the Spanish border. Dotted with well preserved ancient villages and the country’s highest mountain ranges, it’s a quieter, less-traveled area to explore and is famous for the Dao vineyards.

The village of Fornos de Algodres is a tiny mountain town with views of the Mondego River Valley, cobblestone streets and a vast historical and archeological heritage, with ceremonial sites and fortified settlements from the Bronze, Middle and Neolithic Ages. 

Don’t miss the centuries-old Sao Mateus Fair in August with artists, crafts, music and food that lasts for up to a month. The highest town in Portugal with fortifications dating back to the 12th century, the city of Guarda is a 30-minute drive and the medieval cities of Coimbra and Conímbriga with the most famous Roman ruins in Portugal, are a 90-minute drive. Other nearby treasures include the ancient atmosphere of the village of Celorico da Beira, with its impressive castle and solitary standing stone. The Atlantic coast is a one-hour drive west.
