Situated in Travancinha, 12 km from the Serra da Estrela Natural Park, Chão do Rio – Turismo de Aldeia offers a sustainable living experience. On their 8-ha farm, nature is cherished and enjoyed by guests.

The 6 comfortable thatched stone houses are arranged around the organic pool, built to resemble the lagoons of Serra da Estrela. Breakfast is served in baskets and includes regional specialties.

Guests are encouraged to explore the nearby trails on foot or with the freely available bicycles. Children can entertain themselves with wheelbarrows, collect eggs from the mobile chicken coop, feed the sheep named “Flor” and “Estrela,” have a dip with the frogs, or simply play freely and safely.
