What We're Doing

Our commitment to self-sustainability is applied in our daily life through an inclusive virtuous cycle involving nature, agriculture, the region, and CASA VELHA.

Respect for the environment embodies one of CASA VELHA’s fundamental principles. Numerous initiatives have been developed, and we have incorporated various resources into the design and operation of CASA VELHA to help minimize our ecological footprint and preserve this culture for future generations.

O Que Estamos a Fazer

  1. The restoration of CASA VELHA was carried out with the aim of harmonizing it with the surrounding environment. Utilizing local materials and an architectural style that allows it to blend discreetly into the landscape.

  3. Through rainwater collection, wells, and boreholes, we are able to provide water for garden and vegetable patch irrigation.
  4. Guests are informed about our sustainable initiatives and how they can contribute (waste separation and water conservation).
  5. We respect Portuguese native species, and you can find our stone walls in the chicken coop.
  6. We compost vegetative material and reuse 100% of the pruned wood for our fireplaces or the garden.
  7. In our vegetable garden, we adhere to traditional techniques, with manual harvesting respecting the cycle and rhythm of nature.
