SUGGESTED AMBITUR: CASA DA LAGOA

A centenarian house of Gandaresa farming that was already owned by the family of João Luís Pinho but that was abandoned was the object of an investment with the objective of creating a rural tourism of excellence in a quiet village of the county of Mira. Located in full Rede Natura, a few meters from the lagoon that gives its name, among fields, woods and dunes, Casa da Lagoa has opened its doors keeping the original layout but recreating the space so that guests can enjoy the best stay possible. And in 2018, she was awarded the Green Key.

The house has three suites and one apartment, with restaurant service exclusively for guests, a local products store and bar service. On the property there is also a garden and orchard with fruit trees, from which Casa da Lagoa produces its own sweets and jams, and a farm from which it extracts the freshest vegetables for its own consumption. "We try to give the best of this land to us, in total respect for the surrounding environment and nature," said João Luís Pinho and Sofia Sousa, the project's mentors. This year, the aim is to strengthen the animation for both guests and external audiences, and celebrate partnerships with local cultural entities in order to guarantee customers a greater diversity of choice.
