“A charming and sophisticated house, in the middle of Serra da Estrela’s Natural Park”


In the middle of the Serra da Estrela’ Natural Park, the biggest mountain range in Continental Portugal, and just 10 minutes away from Seia, we can find the charming “Casas da Lapa”.

An historical building that dates back to the XIX century and whose remodelling process had a main concern, the perfect balance with the surroundings and the use of the typical materials in the region, such as granite and wood. It’s, however, the comfort and decoration that stand out.

The decoration, of a contemporary style, with numerous pieces and art details contrasts with the green colours on the outside of this delightful refuge.

In warmer days, the exterior swimming pool and the terrace create the perfect environment. On colder days, it’s the heat coming from the fireplace that makes the “Casas da Lapa” even cosier, watching the snow falling in an experience that is only usual in Serra da Estrela’s Natural Park. The “Casas da Lapa” also suggests a turkish bath, sauna, or even a massage, subject to reservation.
