The village of Santo Estêvão is nearly inhabited and needs your help. By staying here you are contributing to reduce the rural desertification of the rural areas in Portugal. My passion for unspoiled nature inspires me to share with you the unique experience of living with a small farming family in a village surrounded by mountains and pure rivers. It is my pleasure to welcome you to my parents house and the village I grew up in with my parents as hosts.
