The space
Casa Cerro da Correia has the Biosphere certification in sustainable tourism, granted by the Responsible Tourism Institute, an organization with a memorandum of understanding with Unesco.
Surrounded by a forest of chestnut trees, oaks and holm-oaks, Casa Cerro da Correia is a quiet accommodation. Throughout the day you can hear the singing of different types of native birds of the Natural Park of Serra da Estrela: hoops, crows, owls ...
The garden has native species. The goal is to create a balanced ecosystem, to refuse the use of invasive species, to reduce water consumption and to enhance food for insects and birds in the region. To do this, when we started designing the garden, we kept the plants that were already there like carqueja, rosmaninho, yellow gesta, and several wild species. All the plants or trees that have been put there are species that exist in the Natural Park: rosemary, juniper, holly, lavender, rosemary and milk thistle.
In the pine forest we started the slow process (progressing to the rhythm of the trees, not the man) replacing the resinous trees, which have a higher risk of fire, by the hardwoods, with lower fuel risk. We planted black oak, holm oaks and arbutus trees, and at the same time protected the shoots of these species that are born spontaneously under the pines. When these leafy trees are larger we can progressively reduce the number of pine trees.

Guest access
Our guests have access to the garden, forest and the young orchard. You can also visit the vegetable garden of Casa Cerro da Correia. We have very entertaining suggestions to spend time in an educational way in the garden, so that children and adults discover the farming of mountain and local products.

Other things to note
We have different experiences for the guests that want to discover the mountain and the community that lives in this territory. You can participate in the live of a shepherd and its herd (https://www.airbnb.com/follow_the_shepherd_serra_da_estrela), you can taste the best cheeses of Serra da Estrela (https://www.airbnb.com/serra_da_estrela_cheese_tasting) and learn how to make natural colors (https://www.airbnb.com/paint_with_natural_colors_in_the_forest). contact us if you need any help preparing your stay.
