During the Spanish Civil War (1936) a Portuguese couple settled in Spain took refuge in Portugal and built the Casa dos Galegos (House of Galicians), where they would live for the rest of their lives. For some time, part of the house worked as a medical station that served the locals. In the 50s, the local Primary School was built near the house and for many years there were several teachers who were hosted here. Almost a century later, Casa dos Galegos has been rebuild trying to maintain its simplicity and authenticity and today welcomes guests from all over the world, that make it their own home.
After living in the city for several years I decided to completely change my life and returned to the countryside to dedicate myself exclusively to my Guests. It is a personal project to which I dedicate all my time, hoping to provide to all of them a memorable experience. Please feel yourself very welcome to Casa dos Galegos. It is yours too. Daniel
Casa dos Galegos is set in a very special location, overlooking a valley surrounded by mountains. It is near and easy to find it but at the same time it feels surprisingly far from civilization. Near the ancient village of Galegos, which still preserves traces of its rich history in smuggling and trading, you can discover some of the most incredible walking routes of the Natural Park of Serra de São Mamede, with the exquisite "flying castle" of Marvão always on sight. Or you can simply rest, enjoy the views and the quietness of nature, by the private pool or by the log fire.
