About us

The property Encosta do Sobreiro with an overall area of 2,5 hectares is located in Fornos de Algodres, at the foothills of Serra da Estrela – Unesco´s World Geopark.

 

Designed by the young architects Bernardo Castro and Filipe Gonçalves, Barbosa e Castro, Lda., this bold and ambitious architectural project ended its reconstruction and expansion in 2020. With the ideal partnership between the civil engineer Rui Miguel Santos and the interior designer Ana Sofia Silva, Encosta do Sobreiro emerged and brought to this rural village, a touch of modernity that perfectly blends within the beautiful green valleys and mountains.

 

This rural space which embraces the contemporary, favors the refunctionalization of the country house, privileging the comfort and to let you feel in harmony with an environment of rural nature, in an experience that will revitalize the body and mind.

 

Choose to walk in the farm’s 25,500 m2 of rural space and enjoy its nooks of forest, ruins, rocks, and plains, relax reading a book, bath in our saltwater pool and rest on comfortable loungers on the lawn, play volleyball or football with family and friends, take the children to the playground, have fun with board games, turnball, ping pong, among others.

Encosta do Sobreiro is the perfect destination for family and friends vacations, to spend peaceful moments with your ideal partner, leaving behind the hectic and crowded metropolitan areas and welcoming the silence of a typical mountain village, rejoicing in days of absolute rest and leisure.

 

Here, we combine rurality and the contemporary, in order to simply relax, or to enjoy  several activities that you will find at your disposal.
