Surrounded by endless green, Casal Novo is the living in the country dream come true. Little by little, this village, which was once abandoned, has been regaining inhabitants to its relatively large schist houses where overlooks and balconies break the monotony. A steep staircase, which is also the main street, leads to two threshing floors from which you can see the view over the beautiful Serra da Lousã. There are two trails passing through the village which connect it to Chiqueiro and Talasnal, two near-by villages with which Casal Novo has a special relationshig. Walking or by MTB, you should get on your way.
