Casa do Giestal is a cottage located on a farm at the foot of Serra da Estrela and its natural park, in a space in communion with nature.
It is a traditional shale house, recently refurbished.
- The energy available comes from photovoltaic panels and batteries. This system has recently been strengthened which has made it self-sufficient;
- Private river beach;
- 1 Km access on dirt roads.

The space
The Casa do Giestal, before the remodeling, was a corral of oxen on the lower floor and a barn on the upper floor, because it was intended for agricultural storage.
In 1999 we decided to get to work and began the expansion and adaptation of the house to make it worthy of modern times.
Still, the house is not connected to the mains electricity which can be considered a nuisance by some, but has its charm for many others. However, it is a home with eco-friendly notes as it has solar panels for electricity production.
The fact that it is isolated and there is very little "light pollution" makes the hot summer evenings a spectacle of stars outdoors.
To make the space more comfortable on cold winter nights, the fireplace has recently been equipped with a heat reclaimer. In this way the whole house started to have central heating.
