Located at the very heart of a Beira village, Vilar Torpim, this Rural Tourism Unit offers a space of quality where you can enjoy a quiet and cosy ambiance.
Inherited by the current members of the sponsoring company, this house has more than 200 years, and owes its name to the existence of two water wells in its construction area. As a joke, people in the village say: "the house of the wells had water even before the pipes."
It is a typical Beira house, belonging to a wealthy farmer, for it was already whitewashed; a symbol of power and distinction, and it was located in the centre of the village Vilar Torpim, on its main square.
With geothermal heating/air-conditioning system, it has10 fully fitted bedrooms, of which three are twin rooms, six double and one for people with disabilities. This unit also offers a game room with bar, a conference room, leisure and relaxation areas, as well as sauna, Jacuzzi, Turkish bath and a heated outdoor swimming-pool. There are bicycles at the disposal of our guests to go for a ride in the surroundings.
The architecture project, is the result of a perfect combination of both modern and traditional styles. The structural and historical features of the house were kept, managing to obtain an up-to-date functionality in order to experience an atmosphere of harmony and well-being.
It serves breakfast and provides for dinner with previous booking, as well as other activities in partnership with enterprises of tourist entertainment.
Besides its main activity, Rural Tourism, the sponsoring company will explore olive groves based on biological agriculture methods.
The return to former materials (granite) will prevail upon the whole reconstruction. The house outside will be made of granite stone, powerful, strong, plain & solid. Inside it will be cosy, agreeable and suitable to the needs of modern comfort. This concept symbiosis will endow Casa dos Poços with a special character included in a surrounding landscape of top quality tourism.
