House built by the owner's grandfather about 1930. It was fully rehabilitated in 2017. From the original house stood the thick stone walls and the balcony. The part of the house to rent is the old shop, where the grandparents kept the implements and the produce from the country. The house is located in the liveliest place in the village: next to the olive grove of the People, with the public swimming pool 200 meters away and the playground opposite.
The house has a patio that borders the olive grove and guests can enjoy.

Other things to note
For stays longer than 15 days there is no replacement of toilet, kitchen and laundry consumables available at home at check-in.

Where you’ll be

Castelo Branco, Portugal

Orca is synonymous with tapir or dolmen. In the Neolithic, the region where the Orca is located was populated by the peoples of megalithic culture, who buried the dead in temples built with huge stones. These graves are called orcas, tapirs or dolmens. The village evolved from a medieval farm. The medieval housing center would be next to the chapel of Nª Senhora da Oliveira. This chapel was built in the 19th century. XVI. Next to the chapel there is an olive tree that is thought to be 600 years old. From medieval times there are several graves excavated in the rock. The Mother Church, dedicated to Saint Francis of Assisi, marks the beginning of the Orca as a village from the XVI. Next to the road is Fonte Velha (now known as Fonte da Mina) and next to the chapel of Santo António is Fonte Nova. Other sources deserve a visit, such as Stuttering and Mulberry. Stuttering Fountain has a snack park. The bridge over the Taveiró stream is worth a visit. Built in the 16th century, it was rebuilt in the late 16th century. XIX. The regional products you can buy in the village are cheeses, sausages, honey and traditional cakes.

Sou licenciada em Antropologia e pós-graduada em História. Gosto de compreender a vida da gente comum, tanto do passado, como do presente. Adoro animais (cuido de seis gatos). Reconstruir a casa dos meus avós paternos (e onde nasceu o meu Pai) foi um tributo que lhes quis prestar e é uma forma de reviver os felizes momentos que passei na sua companhia. Além de ser um prazer estar na Orca e conviver com os seus simpáticos habitantes... e ouvir passarinhos a toda a hora.
