Vila dos Castanheiros – Paio Mendes- Ferreira do Zezere

For those that want to replace the city stress by the calmness of the country side, Vila dos Castanheiros (Chestnut Tree Villa) is the ideal place. Located in the center of Portugal, in the historical village of Paio Mendes, 3 Km away from Dornes, where the peaceful flow of Rio Zêzere meets the lagoon of Castelo do Bode, you may take advantage of a magnificent landscape, where the mountainside of Ribatejo beginsThe rooms we have are named after our trees, whose fruits you may enjoy freely during your stay. Come find us and enjoy the comfort, silence, flavours and the pure fresh air of this genuine treausure in the middle of Portugal. This family project was born from a quest for a reunion with Nature. The restoration and recovery of the spaces went hand in hand with the discovery of the old Quinta (Estate or large farmhouse) of "Professor Camilo", the first owner, which was left abandoned for years. This experience of another life in the country, was the beginning of the Vila dos Castanheiros, that now shares its comfort and beauty with its guests.

The wealth of details that embellish its original value and space are the result of true experience and have revitalized the once abandoned farmhouse that is now in our possession.

We can't leave out the organic garden and our animals: chickens, ducks, guineafowl (Chicken Angola) and sheep, for now ... The foundation of a healthy and delicious cuisine that follows the seasons. And each season has its fruit (persimmons and chestnuts in autumn, oranges and tangerines in the winter, cherries in spring and plums, figs and pears in summer).
