What sets Cerdeira Village apart is the combination of quality accommodation with an ambitious cultural project. Cerdeira offers ideas and routes to explore this often forgotten region.
Cerdeira has become an artistic centre with international Artistic Residencies, workshops and small creative experiences; a spot for creative or wellness retreats and a hideaway for truly invigorating holidays, benefitting from its unique natural setting, its quietness and all the infrastructure that has been built with the visitors in mind: the Casa das Artes, the studios, the library, the gallery, the community oven and the café.
Guests are housed in one of nine traditional schist houses, which have been sustainably remodelled in order to strike a balance between tradition and modern comfort. Some of these houses have also been enhanced by national and international artists, inspired by the houses themselves to create unique pieces that add to the individuality of each house.
Social Responsibility and Sustainability are fundamental concepts, and were applied not only in the reconstruction phase, with regional techniques, a local workforce and the introduction of ecological materials, but are important in the day-to-day work.
